Right now, right where you, are Spirit is also.
You are breathing in the Breath of the Spirit.
That’s how close you are to the Source of Life.
No matter where you go, no matter
how far or how fast you travel,
the Spirit of the All Good goes with you.
 
God is not some man on a throne
watching and judging you from afar.
God is the blood coursing through your veins.
God is the beat of your heart.
God is your Origin and your Destiny.
 
Our Oneness with the Source of Life
is the most important part of our teaching.
You can feel alone.
You can believe you are alone.
But your experience of aloneness
is just as much a delusion
as the illusion that the sun is moving across the sky.
We are on a planet whirling about the sun,
not the other way around!
 
You live, move, and have your being in the Spirit.
Don’t wait until you shed your body to find this out.
