“You Are Not Mud. You Are This Gold.”(7/23/17)

“You Are Not Mud. You Are This Gold.” (7/23/17)

Don’t you see?

A Colorful Show (6/4/17)

A Colorful Show (6/4/17)

This is the time for war, O soul. Put on your arms.

It is getting late, O soul. Don’t hesitate.

with a cat-and-mouse fight on every corner.

Give it up, O soul. Give it up.

My Real Being (4/9/17)

First, I learned about myself by imitating others.

But, when I look at Him, I see my image. When I look at myself, I see His.

God's Appearance (6/19/16)

God’s Appearance (6/19/16)

Every creature in the universe is God’s appearance.

Every event, everything has existed in the Divine Consciousness before.

Every particle comes from the whole.

But, that does not mean the whole divides into particles all the time.
