“You are not just a part of God. You are altogether God, and God is altogether you. This is not blasphemy. This is your identity.” -Wayne Dyer
Even in deep humility, you can simultaneously recognize that you are a part of Source. You contain the potential and power of the Whole.
That which is perfect and unlimited, when divided into parts, is no less so. As an individuation of the One, you are simultaneously not God, and yet you are God. You are just a drop in the ocean, and yet in the words of Rumi, “You are not just a drop in the ocean, you are the mighty ocean in the drop.”
While the ego can easily try to claim this idea, the truth of it far surpasses the limitations of the separate self and its ego’s fierce quest for identity.
Yet, even as we feel separate, there is power in acknowledging what we are. For in the truth of what we are there is nothing to fear! In what we truly are, there is no lack, and there is no limitation. In what we truly are, there is no death, or captivity, or disease. Acknowledging that helps to liberate us from the fear of the lack and limitation that we have bought into while “lost” in the dream of being human. The truth of what we are is freeing!
The power of the Whole that belongs to us is the same power that gives rise to universes, the same power that is the root of all beautiful or ugly expressions of form! As creative beings, we are responsible for how we use that power. For where you go, and where we go, reality ultimately follows. Acknowledging who we really are then can be the first step to more deliberately using our power and intentionally carving a path in the world of form that is more reflective of our true nature of love and joy!
