I KNOW THAT MY SPIRIT IS FREE FROM ALL LIMITATION – I KNOW THAT I UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH ABOUT MYSELF
Whoever knows the God who is without commencement, without end, who within this impervious (world) is the creator of the universe, who is of an infinite form, the one penetrator of the universe, becomes liberated from all bonds.
Thus it is that the Tao produces (all things), nourishes them, brings them to their full growth, nurses them, completes them, matures them, maintains them, and overspreads them.
The Tao Teh King
Our Chinese text tells us that Tao, which means Spirit, produces everything, nourishes everything and maintains everything. It spreads itself over everything. It flows through everything and is in all things. Indeed, being all that is, there can be nothing outside It. Our Hindu text tells us that in such degree as we understand God, who is the one penetrator of the universe in such degree we become liberated. And the Hebrew text says, “Walk before me and be thou perfect.” We are to recognize the Divine in everything; to speak to the Divine in everything; to see It everywhere – “Lift the stone and you will find me, cleave the wood for there am I.” There is a mystical Presence which pervades the universe. The fragrance of the rose; the beauty of the dewdrop glistening in the sun, are manifestations of Its Presence and activity. This mystical Presence welling up in our consciousness, evermore proclaims Itself as the root and source.” And the Christian Scriptures tell us, “I am over all, in all and through all.” The enlightened of the ages have told us that it is this God within us that recognizes Itself, or Himself, in everything we are.
I know that my spirit is free from all limitation; that my physical body and my objective affairs reflect and manifest the perfection which I feel; the wholeness which I am certain of, and the prosperity which rightfully belongs to me.
