Becoming An Instrument For the Divine Activity

IW Morsel – Pointless
Do you see how pointless it is to look at a human being and begin thinking about his age or his condition? That picture before the eyes is the illusion of human sense.

Becoming An Instrument For the Divine Activity

It is an impossibility for us to know more than God, and it is only possible for us to know as much as God if we have first reached that state of emptiness where we know nothing, and are then able because of that emptiness to let the wisdom of God manifest itself as our wisdom. By achieving a receptive attitude for the inflow, always maintaining a listening attitude, making of ourselves a vacuum, we wait for the new melody or new idea, the new vision, the new invention, or the new discovery to come to us.
When we learn to let both mind and body be the instruments for infinite Wisdom, which in silence and in stillness can manifest Itself as us, It performs Its functions through us. We cannot use God, but by attaining an inner stillness, God can use us, and It can manifest through us as healings if we have been chosen to be a part of the healing ministry, as inventions if we are inventors, or as music if we are composers.
God is infinity. All that is, is an emanation of God—whether it is to appear as engineering principles, scientific principles, literary works, art works, or whatever it may be—and we are the instruments through which and as which It is to function on earth. Our approach to life should be not one of learning how to use Truth, but how to be so receptive and responsive to the divine Impulse that Truth can use us, that Life can flow as our life, and Wisdom flow as our wisdom.
We open ourselves that we may be used by Truth, that God may manifest Itself as our individual being, that God may live Its life as us, that God may lead, guide, direct, govern, sustain, maintain, support, and supply, and that we may be the instruments through which or as which that takes place.
