“Man’s great universe adventure consists in the transit of his mortal mind from the stability of mechanical statics to the divinity of spiritual dynamics, and he achieves this transformation by the force and constancy of his own personality decisions, in each of life’s situations declaring, “It is my will that your will be done.” [UB, 118:8:11]

Thought Adjuster: “Even though many faith-children living on this grief-stricken and war-inflicted planet pray sincerely the Lord’s prayer “Your kingdom come; your will be done!” it appears that their wishful praying has failed to materialize for so long. How come?

Could it be that prayer in and by itself is not enough to move mountains? Could it be that these spirit-infused good-will creatures fail to grasp that THEY are called to be the DOERS—the IMPLEMENTERS—of the divine best wishes—not the other way around?

The Father’s ‘vision’ is truth-, beauty-, and goodness-centered. Yet, He delegated its fulfillment to the ‘laborers in the field’ when he gifted them with free will. “Let me be an instrument of your will” should be a great self-motivating reminder that you have an important part to play in the outworking of the divine will that encompasses YOU in its doing. Will you CHOOSE to do so?

“This choosing does not so much consist in the negation of creature will—“Not my will but yours be done”—as it consists in the creature’s positive affirmation: “It is my will that your will be done.” And if this choice is made, sooner or later will the God-choosing son find inner union (fusion) with the indwelling God fragment, while this same perfecting son will find supreme personality satisfaction in the worship communion of the personality of man and the personality of his Maker, two personalities whose creative attributes have eternally joined in self-willed mutuality of expression—the birth of another eternal partnership of the will of man and the will of God.” [UB, 111:5.6]

Much to ponder, isn’t there?”
