Good Morning,

How do you define yourself? It is not who you are, rather, it is what you do that truly defines you. Status of birth, status of wealth, status of the mob, status of gender, status of religion and/or status of race is a lie. These are ideological misconceptions that you embrace to hold true. They hold no power over you unless you give them power. The lie becomes reality because you so choose. So, how do you define yourself? Self is defined by thoughts, words, and deeds. A statement to remember is “Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it and right is right, even if no one is doing it”.

Jesus said The first and greatest commandment is, Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. The second commandment is like unto it, Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

So, do you love yourself? Are you a follower of human thinking or a follower of Divine thinking? Do you run with the mob or do you shine as yourself? Are you scared to be different or are you different because you’re scared? To be who you really are, you need to accept where you are and understand the Truth of your purpose. The purpose of self is to embrace the lessons which are presented to you every moment of everyday and express that experience in a way that is unique to you. No one sees the world the same way, so why should you live in the world the same way. The path to self expression is a realization towards the Grace of GOD.

Take a moment and think about this statement, I am a mirror that reflects your PRESENCE, the unique gift of YOUR expression. “PRESENCE” being the Holy Spirit and Grace having the insight to express that “Gift”.

This is what is meant by “self expression”. This is the insight of understanding who you truly are and how you define yourself. Make this statement, “I commune with a higher consciousness and hear the words without sound”.

You may ask yourself, “How do I get there?”. Three words: Accept, Forgive and Love. The first step is to Accept who you are, what you are and where you are every moment of everyday. GOD does not make mistakes, you are in the perfect place at the perfect time experiencing the perfect moment. This is very difficult to understand and few people truly embrace the truth. The second step, Forgive yourself for all your foibles and learning lessons that you perceived as failures. GOD has given you the perfect set of tools and enabled you with the proper set of skills to address any hurdle place along your path. There are no failures, just lessons learned. Lastly, once you accomplished the first two steps, the third step is to Love yourself. This comes with insight of the Truth. The Truth is you are part of the INFINITE, you are part of ALL THAT IS. Once you Love yourself, then you can Love others. Once you Love yourself, then you realize your purpose and how to truly express the Divine spark that resides inside of you. This is insight, this is the Path to GOD. This is the time of surrender, the release of the lie and the freedom of Truth.

Take a deep breath, find the stillness within and think about your thoughts, words and deeds. Do you accept, forgive and love yourself? Do you accept, forgive and love those around you…those who offend you, those that oppose you, those who express themselves different from you? If not, you are missing the mark and embracing the illusion that is all around you.

Jesus carried his own tool of execution. People mocked him, insulted him and stripped him his garments. His definition of self was beyond the mob, beyond the lies of human doctrine. Jesus was in a state of Acceptance. He was in a state of Forgiveness and said,”Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” The Love and Truth of GOD gave him the strength to rise above the illusion. Jesus defined himself and exalted the Glory of GOD to all that witness his execution. Jesus had a choice, yet, Jesus accepted the Will of GOD, forgave the ignorant mob before him and embraced the Love of GOD.

So, How do you define yourself? The choice is yours.
