“Every now and then, life causes you to lose your phone, lose your job, lose your relationship, the things you think are important, so you can see that you have a full life independent of them.
There are many things you feel are so essential, but without them, you find you still have your Self, which is more than all of them put together.
You cannot lose your Self. This is the most important thing.”
~ Mooji *
Have you ever given yourself this gift?
I know, it probably didn’t feel like a gift at the time…
I appreciate this reminder that we are all in essence spiritual beings. It is the core part of ourselves that never changes. This true Self is accepting and always there, no matter what circumstances our small self finds itself in.
Coming into meditation and prayer in times of trouble allows us to feel the stillness within and connect to our true Self and Source within us all.
