Some may still think, even in today's day and age, that this belief is sacrilegious. Some may think this is self-centered and link it to a feeling of superiority. No way.
God is our life. We Are because God Is. Whatever your idea of God, whether it's Divine Source, the Universe, the Creator....God's Life is in each and every one of us and in all lives. The plants, the ocean, the trees, the animals, etc.
To begin to fathom this truth that I am as God created me and that everything else going on in my head is of my own making (inherited from my upbringing and culture) fills me with awe. It was so alien to see myself in this light, yet now it begins to make perfect sense. This is the "place" I've been searching for all of my life. HOME. A home filled with peace, defenselessness, total trust, joy, guiltlessness.
To realize that I have the power to change the world, to bring Its Light to each living being, to understand that I am INNATELY Love and that I am complete just because, is like taking off dirty clothes I've been wearing and find I have been wearing WHITE, SPOTLESS garments all along underneath.
The most important thing I keep in mind is that all of this is a gift from my Creator. I have done nothing at all to have to measure up, earn or sacrifice in order to Be Love and loved.
By practicing changing the old self-image of not good enough to the All-Encompassing and Whole Me motivates me to go out into the world and share this Truth with everyone. This is what I do as a Life Coach. Remind others who they really are!!
I (the old me) step back and invite the Light of God to step forward and guide me.
