Our Spirit Is God

One limiting thought I used to have is: “It is wrong to try to be like God.” But that is my nature! Ever since I was born, people have been doing their best to limit me, to make me something less than I am. I deserve to receive the power of God in me because I have the desire, ability, talent, and goodness necessary to become a powerful force of good in this world and to express the Divine in my life and my society.

It is not wrong to want the fullness of God to express Itself through you.

All I know about life culminates in what I’m learning now. I can recognize Truth and falsehood. This is not of the devil. There is no devil. That was a made-up fairy tale character. There is certainly no evil that approaches the power of Good. Real evil is weak and temporary, and my purpose in life is to end it. So, now I will become more like God every day of my life, just as I have been becoming for as long as I remember. Now, with my greater understanding, people will help me along, not hinder me!

I’ve had wrong ideas about God because of the religious images associated with the word/name “God” in Christianity. I must remember that it is God—my God—I see in the sunset, in the clouds moving across the sky, in the trees, in the cat, and in my loved ones. It is God who guides me and whose voice I recognize as my intuition. God is not Jehovah. God is the Universe. God is Life. I do know God, so I need to remove all my false ideas about It.

God is the Spirit within me—and you. That Spirit is our True Self.

Man is the highest known expression of Spirit in flesh. Man’s eventual purpose is to express all the qualities of Spirit fully. He does this gradually, through his own evolution, which is a conscious process of reaching upward and outward, so to speak, both toward and as an expression of the Spirit living through him. The more he allows the Spirit’s expression, the higher he raises his consciousness, the more he evolves, and the more like Spirit he becomes.

Spirit is man. To express Spirit means to allow the qualities of Spirit to flow through you. Jesus—the “Son of Man”—was an example of this very powerful state, and that’s what he was trying to tell us.

The “Kingdom of God” is near indeed!  It is within us, just as the Master said.
