There is a tremendous fear of loss in the mind, especially with interpersonal relationships. The ego believes firmly in sacrifice and yet the Spirit knows that sacrifice is impossible. From the Higher perspective it can always be seen that when things or relationships seem to fall away, it is simply to clear the way for the next gift we are to receive. We can trust that the way things naturally unfold in form will always be a blessing if we use it for the purpose of true forgiveness; for bringing us into greater intimacy with our Self and with God.
