This Week’s Quotation:
The Being who is the truth of who you are longs to enter your soul and to enter the world in which you live.
It takes courage to come to the place of recognition that you are not just the soul who is looking for a spiritual experience. You are universal love, looking for a body, looking for the opportunity to express yourself in the most accurate and the most powerful way for this circumstance.
~ Becoming a Sun p. 265
You Are Universal Love
The human mind is a remarkable instrument for awareness and thought. It has the ability to see from so many different perspectives, however imperfectly.
You can see the world from what seems to be “your own” perspective, whatever that might be. You can see it from the perspective of another person.
You can identify with your emotions and see the world from the perspective of your sadness, anger, or joy. You can identify with your body and think about your thirst, hunger, tiredness, or physical excitement.
That’s the mind for you. It is as if it is nothing of itself. It just provides conscious awareness and thought for all the other elements of human experience. In that way, it gives a conscious voice to what we experience and provides an instrument for the facilitation of it all.
The quotation from my book quoted above proposes that a person who sees themselves as being on a spiritual path can consciously speak for the dimension of themselves that longs for something. But they can also come to the realization that they are already what they long to experience. And as that reality, they long for their human soul to wake up to the inner reality of who they are.
You are universal love, desiring to express yourself in the world. Doesn’t it feel right to speak for that reality within yourself?
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
