It is possible to be both focused on what you are doing and cognizant of your connection with the Spirit. It is the connection that allows you to let go of the illusions that would keep you from seeing the truth of what is intended for you. I believe that is what is meant by pray without ceasing. Unending prayer is not the ramblings of those trapped in fear. It is the peaceful knowing that God is a part of you and you are a part of God. When you exist in that knowing, you are aware that there is a guiding voice that is with you at all times, helping you, prompting you, leading you down the right path.
When we are willing to release the trappings of the ego, we are able to accept the pathway of the righteous. Think about a time when you have simply known what the right answer was to a challenge that you were facing. When you let go of the fear and the worry and you accept the design that has been laid before you, you know the peace of the Spirit. We, as humans, put ourselves through a living hell by second-guessing everything that we do.
The thought of the Jim Carrey movie, "Yes Man," just popped into my head. In the movie, he goes to a motivational program and the speaker singles him out. He tells him to say to "YES" to everything. He ends up doing just that and turns his world upside down. He makes hundreds of micro-loans and helps people to realize their dreams. He also gets a promotion for coming up with the micro-loan concept. He meets and falls in love with the woman of his dreams, loses her, and gets her back. He learns to live without the fear of what might work and what might not work. I think that is what is missing so often in life, that willingness to say "YES" to a new adventure.
So, my challenge to you today is to allow the voice of God to speak to you. Be open to the adventure and let go of the fears that the ego would place on you. Live your life without limits, guided by the voice of God that speaks to you continuously!
