Be You

“When the ego weeps for what it has lost, the spirit rejoices in what it has found.” (Sufi Proverb)

(Listen to my song “Let It Be Done to Me” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Luke 1:38

“May it be done to me according to your word.”


Letting go of our ego’s self-centered desires is the key to allowing your true self to come forth.

To make this happen…you almost have to have some contemplative practice…some method of literally letting go of the ego’s constant attempts to remain in control.

Some form of meditation is one way to practice being present…allowing your non-stop thoughts to slow to a trickle and then stop.

However, most of us are addicted to our thoughts and constant  commentaries.

It is from this place of the “now” where you can open your heart for a Divine message.

It is only then that you can get an inkling of your true self and begin living your purpose.

It is only then that you can echo Mary’s words above: “May it be done to me according to your word.”
