Jesus said in reply, “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike.”
Our egos and intellects are in such control that we are often quite unaware of God’s presence and communications. We must be willing to open ourselves to the un-knowable…the Mystery of God. This takes much humility and letting-go…surrender to that which is beyond us…a childlike suspension of our need to be sure and right. If a person is only motivated by his or her ego’s insatiable desires for power, prestige and material things…that person will never truly become the “true self” that God intended…but only a “false self.” Simply observe your ego’s demands. This will begin the process of the ego’s diminishment. Jesus opened Himself totally to God’s will and allowed God to define Him. For us to know who we truly are…we must put a childlike trust in our Creator…open our ears, eyes and hearts…listen…and then begin to live the answer.
