To find your true self…you must lose your false self.

Philippians 2:13

For God is the one who, for his good purpose, works in you both to desire and to work.

When we yearn to do something for the sake of doing good…the Source of that yearning inside us is God.

Sometimes Christians call this the movement of the Holy Spirit.

But to allow this yearning to well-up from the Ground of Being deep in our hearts so that we act on it…we must surrender to it.

We must detach from all the distractions and glittery enticements luring us with the false promise of satisfaction.

We must let go of our ego-generated false selves.

Nothing will satisfy the deep yearning you feel…but God.

Or we could say, nothing but Love…since God is Love (1 John 4:8).

When you are living from this foundation of Love…your desires and your works will bear fruit.

You will be taking part in God’s creative flow.

You will see amazing things happen because you will be living as your true self!
