Whatever suffers is not part of me.
When you decided to put on the cloak of darkness, you decided to deny your reality as the Light. And so you came to believe in something else that became a mockery of God. You are the light of the world and the memory of the light that you are can be found hidden deep inside of you. When you begin to remember the light, you are beginning to forget the body. Try to remember today that the body that you think you are is not real. Nothing that it experiences is the real part of you but you can sink down into silence and peace and remember your True Self.
In the silence you will begin to remember your True Friend and Who you really are. You will hear your Self speak to you in certainty that, “I am okay.” The Voice will tell you, “I have everything I need.” This is the place where we will find and meet the memory of our True Self. Let us practice today the complete surrendering of the body and its chattery mind along with it in exchange for this memory of God within ourselves.
