A nice little message sent to me by newspirituality.org …
When you wake up to the Divine Consciousness within you and your divine identity, you wake up simultaneously to the Divine Consciousness appearing as all other beings. And this is not poetry and this is not a feeling; this is a direct experience of the divine light living in and as all other beings.
And until this realization is firm in you, you do not know who or where you are. You do not know that you are God in disguise, and you do not know that you have been born into a totally sacred, totally holy creation in which all sentient beings, from the smallest flea to the largest whale, are nothing less than God Herself.

That’s such a beautiful thought. I should remember this more often.
