As I look back on my life-changing conversation with my Inner Wisdom, I think my pastor’s words to me were indeed inspired. He did not say go pray, read Scripture, etc. Instead, he said, “Listen to the message the pain has for you.”
The dialogue for any of us is not a courageous act, leap of faith, or surrender. Our free will is never compromised. It is simply a conversation–an interview with our Inner Wisdom. Questions and answers. Nothing more.
And yet so much more! What we find is a force for good that wills us so much more than we can imagine. it can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Yet it will not coerce. It invites our cooperation–our participation in our own miracle through our permission.
Being so convinced in my dialogue that the force beneath my pain willed me life and not death, I readily gave permission.
“Are you ready?”
“Yes, let the process begin.”
No more questions, no hesitation. The resolution was so satisfactory that I folded up the piece of paper, put it away, and forgot that the dialogue had taken place.
Some time later the miracle occurred.
