“When next someone asks you, ‘Who are you?’ please do not give them a name. Do not say, ‘Well, I was born in a certain town in a certain part of the planet.” Do not tell them that you are a democrat, or a republican, or a communist, or an atheist or a catholic.”
Tell them the truth:
Who am I? I am the extension of Love in form.
I have never been born and I will never taste death.
I am infinite and eternal.
I shine forth as a sunbeam to the sun.
I am the effect of God’s Love.
And I stand before you to love you.
– From the book, The Way of Mastery, Part One: The Way of the Heart
By the Shanti Christo Foundation
“I stand before you to love you.” I read that and just melted into the desire to be that person. What would life be like if I simply loved each person around me? How would life change if I stood in a crowded room or drove on a busy highway and simply loved?
Without judgment, without qualifiers, without conditions, without exceptions and without needing reasons …
It feels so good as I ponder it. I’ll get back with you after I’ve spent some time practicing knowing I am that person and being that person!
