"NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE, BE DONE"

CHRIST JESUS' recognition (John 14:10), "The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works," enabled him later on, in the face of his coming crucifixion, to pray (Luke 22:42), "Not my will, but thine, be done." Knowing that he could completely trust his Father to carry him through the crucifixion itself, the Master was able to surrender all human desire to be spared this experience.

Since we all have to awaken eventually from the Adam-dream of life in matter to man's status as God's image as reflection, we have to learn what Jesus knew, namely that we really can do nothing of ourselves. Our power and intelligence are derived from the Father, or the divine Mind, God, all-knowing, all-acting, all-powerful, infinite good.
