The way I think about myself often goes like this:I am not good enough.
I don’t understand.
Why does this always happen to me.
I’m trying my best.Are you there God?
I find in meditation that I am constantly pleading for the circumstances of my life to be easy and pain free.
And so I am constantly creating a future that is uncertain and a past that is at fault.
This morning I asked God to – sort of show me what I look like.
I saw that I am always either alive in a future already redeemed by Jesus; resplendent and pure in both body and mind, or I am an Angel; a soul present in Earth at this time, in this particular body and form, aware that this body is on loan, able to exercise the authority of my soul to shape the world around me by being conscious that I am a soul and being aware of the thoughts I use to create the life around me.
I am always either a heavenly being, already victorious eternally – or an angel here on Earth – interacting with it with this knowledge in mind.
It changes how see myself, moment to moment – and gives me the Power to choose Happiness in the midst of everything else.
