Self vs. GodMay 16 - 30, 2010

We tend to think of the world as dualistic or binary. Either I am my self or I turn myself over to God. There are parts of us that we need to let go - parts that are angry, fearful self centered. God wants to help us quiet those dysfunctional parts so that our true self, the part made in God's image and likeness can shine and we can all say "I know I am somebody."

"What does God ask of us?"

"Love mercy"

"Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly"

Daily Inspiration

"There is no adequate way to describe God except in terms of pure love and pure mercy towards the whole human race. That mercy is God's desire to save everyone, to make everyone happy forever, and to give us everything He has."

Arcana Coelestia 1735
