“You are human, but you are also Divine. Darkness may seem to be present within you, but Light is the truth of who you are….” ~ Luminita D. Saviuc
Awakening the Divine
If there is one thing that hurts and wounds the spirit of Man more than anything else, that is the lack of faith and loyalty human beings show to one another.
Though rooted in the same Source that gives life to all life, human beings do not believe that they are part of a great Whole. They do not believe that they are One and the same.
Thus, they perceive themselves as separate entities who have a different purpose and a different aim in life; constantly hurting each other, betraying, comparing, competing and finding it impossible to be faithful and loyal to one another.
As the Native American Proverb goes,
“No tree has branches so foolish as to fight amongst themselves.” ~ Native American Proverb
No tree has branches so foolish as to fight amongst themselves. But since Man can no longer see clearly, nor can he remember who he really is, he moves around in circles, always finding fault in another and never within himself. Failing to realize that while there is a speck of sawdust in his brother’s eye, there is a whole plank in his own eye. (Matthew 7:3)
If you want the world to change, you must first learn to change yourself. Your hidden fears, hatred, anger, pain, bitterness and resentment – towards yourself and the whole world – you must learn to let them go.
You cannot go around demanding the world to become an oasis of love, bliss, and serenity while you are secretly breeding monsters within yourself.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” ~ Mathew 5:43-48
Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. But know that this Heaven is not somewhere out there, far away from you but rather deep within yourself.
The Kingdom of Heaven is within you!
Your body is the temple of the Living God. A God that lives, moves and has His being within your being; that breathes the same air that you breathe, walks the same path that you walk, and lives the same life that you live. Therefore, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. So that you may be made perfect in love, just as the God within you is perfect.
To Err is Human, to Love is Divine
“For the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth—that Love is the ultimate and highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl
The world is your mirror, reflecting back at you that which is already deeply rooted within you.
If you see darkness, malice, violence and monstrosity in others, that is only because darkness, malice, violence and monstrosity is deeply rooted within yourself.
As the saying goes: it takes a Greek to understand Greek.
But just because darkness is present within you, it does not mean that that is who you truly are. For God is love. And since you and God are One, not two, you too are love!
Love is your true nature and love is your real origin. You were made of love and made to love. And if you now happen to feel anything other than love – for your fellow human beings and yourself – that is only because you have forgotten you are Divine!
The Return to Your Divine Nature
“Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods?” ~ John 10:34)
Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods?”
Is is not written that God is God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5) And if you and God are One, not two, is it not right to say that you too are Love and that you too are Light?
There is no enemy outside yourself. There never was and never will be. For God is One, not two. And what you see out there as another, is nothing but a projection of yourself.
The belief in separation; the illusion of fear and lack; the thoughts of hatred, attack and bitterness – towards yourself and another, they were the enemy.
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.” ~ John 4:7-8
Be not deceived.
You are human, but you are also Divine. Darkness may seem to be present within you, but Light is the truth of who you are. You are a Divine Being, made of love and made to love. Love is your nature and Love is your origin. Be not afraid of Love Divine.
Close your eyes to the world around you, and learn to open them to the world within. Bring light to the darkness that has made a home within your heart and soul. Bring light to the darkness that has blinded the whole of you.
Learn to love one another, by loving all parts of you. For love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. And you and God are One, not two.
Do not try to change the world. Only work on remembering who you truly are. Turn your back to all thoughts of evil, and give no energy to that which is not love. Make peace with the darkness in you by remembering that you are Divine. And you will immediately know how to make peace with the darkness of the world.
Do not try to save the world. Only work on saving yourself. For the world is your mirror, reflecting back at you that which is already present and deeply rooted within you. Return to your Divine nature and everything will fall into place.
