It is delightful to realize that when we speak of spiritual awakening, we are not talking about trying to fix ourselves. Rather than trying to improve apparent flaws, our task is to simply release and let go of that which has been covering up our true nature which is inherently divine. The truth is that, no matter how far off we may appear to be, at the core of our being each and every one of us is already an enlightened being. We are already the spiritual image and likeness of love, beauty, pure intelligence and infinite potentiality. So as we make it our practice to release whatever limiting beliefs, old mental patterns and coping mechanisms may have been covering up our True Being, we will find that within us is a sweet golden essence, a radiant luminosity that has been there all along, calling out ever so gently, seeking to be recognized by us and expressed through us.
