Nothing has ever separated you, is presently separating you or will possibly ever separate you from Infinite Love.
“But what about my finite conclusion?”
That’s not a question. It’s an illusion posing as one.
“Our idea of God tells us more about ourselves than about Him.” -Thomas Merton
“But the man or woman who is not afraid to admit everything that he sees to be wrong with himself, and yet recognises that he may be the object of God’s love precisely because of his shortcomings, can begin to be sincere. His sincerity is based on confidence, not in his own illusions about himself, but in the endless, unfailing mercy of God.” -Thomas Merton
“Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”
“As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.”
