little willingness, a
All we need to have in order to receive the miracle and the holy instant from the Holy Spirit. If we give Him a little willingness, as well as recognize our unwillingness, the Holy Spirit will add to our gift His perfect willingness and God will add His unlimited Will. How much is a little willingness? A little willingness to receive the holy instant means “recognizing that you want it above all else” (T-18.IV.1:4). A little willingness to have the Holy Spirit remove our wrong thinking means that we want Him to take it more than we want to keep it (see T-25.VIII.1:6). Thus, having a little willingness seems to mean tipping the scales—wanting what is of God more than we want other things. See T-16.VI.12, T-18.IV.
