Our real self ever perfect and free


“Our real self, the spirit, is ever perfect and free, but we have forgotten that.
So we identify with our present experience of bondage and consequently suffer in countless ways.
Our situation is like someone who is asleep and dreaming that he is being tortured and beaten…
He need not placate, overpower, or escape his torturers.
He needs only to wake up.
~ The Breath of Life: The Practice of Breath Meditation According to Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Jewish, and Christian Traditions. By: Abbot George Burke, Light of Spirit Monastery, 2012. Page 6

To wake up each morning knowing that the Creator of the universe loves you

 

The greatest thing in life is
to wake up each morning
knowing that the Creator of the universe loves me.

As one writer put it
‘He loves me as I am, not as I should be,
but He loves me too much to leave me as I am’.

~ Alan Hermann
