A wonderful spiritual practice is to begin to see ourselves the way God sees us. The eyes of God are too pure to behold iniquity, meaning that the Highest and Best can perceive in us only those qualities that correspond with its own sacred and eternal qualities. In simple terms, regardless of what mistakes we think we’ve made, regardless of what shortcomings we thought we had, the truth is that the Divine Presence only sees our beauty, our potentiality, our inherent well-being, our capacity for love and compassion, and that joyous impulse to always become more and never less of our true selves. Anything that does not correspond or align with those perceptions are miss-perceptions that have originated within a mind that had perceived itself as separate from its Divine Source. So our mission—which yes, we choose to accept—is to release these lesser concepts so we may join in the higher realms of awareness with that part of us that knows that all we are, all we have ever been, and all we could ever be, is intimately and intricately at one with that blissful, infinite, and radiant Love-Intelligence that makes all things by becoming all things.
