You have sought first the Kingdom of Heaven, and all else has indeed been given you. (S I.3:6)
The choice is between the Kingdom of Heaven and the kingdom of fear. One will give me Love and then everything else. The other may give me what I think I need to live a world of separation, competition and individuality but ultimately it is a kingdom of fear.
To make the choice to remember Love means using everything that happens in my life to find the Kingdom within. That means my life purpose is not to be more comfortable and to have the job or the money or the partner I want.
An uncomfortable life, a job I dislike, not enough money in the bank and the difficulties with my partner, can all be used by spirit on the path to the Kingdom of Heaven. Along the way the Holy Spirit will transform my work my money and my relationships. What life looks like once I have made Love the purpose of every moment, is not my responsibility or concern. But I will have everything I need because everything has been given me as a result of my single minded dedication of purpose.
The journey is only possible with inner help because it involves a change of identity. I am no longer a victim of this world but a reflection Love. I no longer strive to survive in this world. I no longer identify with being successful in this world. I am a Self that reflects the Love of another Kingdom
