Whenever I have moments of self-doubt or unworthiness, I take a moment to remember that I am truly a Divine creation, that every cell of my body is part of the body of Spirit. Even my fears and illusions of separation are part of my Divinity. They are the part that brings me contrast–that help me grow and learn about love, forgiveness and compassion ever more deeply.
Shame, guilt and blame have no place in the world of the Divine. We are whole and perfect. We just forget so that we can have some fun remembering. I recently found this quote tucked amongst some papers by my old buddy, Walt Whitman. It pretty much sums up my entire spiritual belief system:
“Divine am I inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touch’d from.”
