“There is only one problem which all my existence, my peace, my happiness depend; to discover myself in discovering God.” – Thomas Merton
Listen to my song “Breathe On Me” on YouTube by clicking HERE.
“Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.”
This is one of Jesus’ key teachings which many Christians have completely overlooked.
We like to say, “Let go and let God,” but saying it is nothing like living it.
Jesus calls his followers to die to themselves.
In other words: Let your ego’s concoction of who you are dissolve.
It’s a delusion.
Allow your inner voice to tell you who you are.
That voice will tell you exactly what God told Jesus: You are my beloved child with whom I am well pleased (Mark 1:11).
You are loved unconditionally.
At your core, you are very good (Genesis 1:31) and eternally loved.
Allow all the masks that your false self crafted to fall to the ground.
Breathe in deeply.
With each breath, know you are loved by the Love that created you.
Now, as Mary Oliver asks in her wonderful poem The Summer Day,
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
