I drove by a church marquee today and read:

“If God is your co-pilot – swap seats.”

I’ve used that phrase “God is my co-pilot” many times …. Yet this morning I understood it at a deeper level. I’ve been saying it as if I am the one in charge – like I’m greater than God and God is here to assist me. It’s true – I am in charge here. God as the Law is here to assist me. I make the decisions and the Law does the work.

Yet, what if I did switch seats? What if I let God be the pilot, and I assisted It? Do I have the courage to totally turn my life over to God? God is an infinite field of creative potentiality. It is all knowing, everywhere present, all powerful. It is unconditionally loving, When I remember this, and let go, I trust, and Life works better than I ever imagined it could.

Does this mean I never make any decisions or intentions? No, of course not! It DOES mean I take my life to a deeper level, a level I could call surrender. Now surrender is not a word I like. I looked it up and the definitions seem so negative. Yet, the idea of surrendering that part of me that thinks it has to do everything all by itself sounds like a good idea. When I think of surrendering, I want to surrender to Love. God is Love.

Dr. Holmes defines Love in the glossary of the Science of Mind as:

“Love is the self-givingness of the Spirit through the desire of Life to express Itself in terms of creation. We are also told in the New Testament that “He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is love.” Love is free from condemnation, even as it is free from fear. Love is a cosmic force whose sweep is irresistible.”

Fear – that’s what I’d like to surrender. Fear, doubt, and uncertainty.

Spirit Within is urging us to open to our expression of Itself, to surrender our littleness, to discover the greatness of who we really are. Yet it seems many have been so conditioned to believe we are not worthy that this can be an uncomfortable process. We can surrender that uncomfortableness! We can trust The Divine! Surrender to Love. Love heals. God is Love. It’s time to let God back into the pilot’s seat!!


(Our Centre is in the process of finding a new location. Please join us in KNOWING we already have it – see us sitting in our new sanctuary on the first Sunday of January, absolutely delighted with our demonstration.)

There is only One Perfect Presence, the infinite Source of all that is. It is absolutely everywhere, including within me.

I know my life is pure Spirit, taking form as all that I am - - as my body, my personality, my thoughts, my experiences, and more. I now see Spirit taking form as my Visions and desires. I know the Law works, so I let God do Its perfect work.

I see Spirit taking form as our Spiritual Home. It reflects the qualities of Spirit I resonate to. It reflects the beauty, serenity and peace of The Divine, yet it empowers and inspires me.

I am so grateful for the easy and effortless way everything comes about in my life and in the life of our Centre. I relax because God is in the pilot’s seat!! I release these words knowing they are done, and so It is.
