Self-will is so strong and so very ingrained.
While we think it will be easy to turn our lives and our care over to our Higher Power, it is the hardest thing one has ever to do. Even though I understand the priciples and necessity of doing so, I still find that this is surely not an “automatic” process.
If only I did, I probably would be having more serenity and peace in my life.
The pure fact of the matter is…
Our lives have been lived by pure-self will for so long, it will be hard to teach this old dog a new trick.
