Note to Self...

It is said that we are made in the image and likeness of God.
It is also said that God is Love.

What else, then, do you need to know?
The answers to your endless questions exist in that one simple truth.

You are not the fear that occupies you
You are not the doubt that undoes you
You are not the selfish lies you speak
Nor the selfish acts you do
You are not the envy that you feel
You are not the shame of your failings
Nor the pride of your victories

You are not the body which the world sees
You are not the mind which analyzes and compares and categorizes
You are not the name that was given to you at birth
You bear the original name, and it is fixed onto you
It is there now, and it will always be there, buried
Under all your other names
And you cannot deny it.

The unhappiness you so often feel with yourself
Is merely the result of forgetting yourself.

Remember who you are, and why you are here
You are here to learn yourself, and to grow yourself
and to be the unique expression of the eternal, beautiful truth.

You are made in the image and likeness of Love
Try to remember that.
