Rise to the Occasion! by Warren

Rise to the Occasion!
What occasions or opportunities are demanding your best these days as the school year draws to a close?
1. Hard assignments, unbelievable work load and killer deadlines?
2. Important tests or essays?
3. A big game, meet, presentation or performance?
4. Group Leadership role(s)?
5. An important social date or event?
6. A sticky situation where taking a moral or ethical stand is needed?
7. A challenging relationship that keeps testing your patience, equanimity and integrity?

Whatever opportunities you face, you can meet them as their master by obeying this powerful two-word command.
"Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil."
Science & Health, 571:16

Know yourself as God knows you -- as an ever perfect expression of "infinity, freedom, harmony and boundless bliss." (see S&H 481:3) Totally accept and simply express each of these elements of your divine identity to eradicate their illegitimate opposites. Without a body-based sense of self, you will be open for God to eliminate from your experience: all of matter's debilitating drag of limited energy, funds, intelligence, speed, inspiration; all its sapping slavery of restrictions (injuries, red tape tie-ups); all its regular rub of inharmonious relationships and its constant cloud of frustration and unhappiness. All gone! Never part of you or those you love.

In the next couple of days, "your assignment, should you choose to accept it," (or not) will be to simply do your part, know yourself spiritually, and watch God do Her part, to supply you with all the wisdom and occasions where victories are wanted. You may also enjoy highlighting in every lesson all of God's jobs in one color and all of yours in another.

A friend shed new light on our focus passage with this one-line insight:
"ABILITY (the wisdom) and OPPORTUNITY (the occasion) are coordinate ideas."

By accepting this divine law and knowing yourself spiritually, you will never have ability without being given opportunity to express it. (no unneeded bench-sitting) And, you'll also never be given opportunities (like the seven listed above) without having the God-given abilities to rise to the occasion!
