My true identity abides in You.
Father, I made an image of myself, and it is this I call the Son of God. Yet is creation as it always was, for Your creation is unchangeable. Let me not worship idols. I am he my father loves. My holiness remains the light of Heaven and the Love of God. Is not what is beloved of You secure? Is not the light of Heaven infinite? Is not Your Son my true Identity, when you created everything that is?
Now are we one in shared Identity, with God our Father as our only Source, and everything created part of us. And so we offer blessing to all things, uniting lovingly with all the world, which our forgiveness has made one with us.
Try as I might today, I could not shake the feeling of guilt. Guilt that I had wronged a friend, that I had acted selfishly and put our friendship in danger. I had a feeling I had hurt him very much, and even as my spiritual self said ‘you cannot hurt anyone’ my human head, my ego, kept telling me I had caused someone else to hurt.
How is it that you can know something to be true, and yet ignore it when the urge to wallow in guilt overtakes. I could not shift it all day. I sought solace in the lesson, but it wasn’t making sense, like I’d created a mental block to keep it out and let my guilt run riot. Not even the half bottle of wine helped. Hope I feel better tomorrow.
