“All spiritual paths and all religions have one mutual aim and that is merging with a divine being.In the moment of merging - this total surrendering - one's own sense of self is taken over by the divine Self. This is the moment of enlightenment.”
The Salt DollA salt doll journeyed for thousands of miles over land, until it finally came to the sea.
It was fascinated by this strange moving mass, quite unlike anything it had ever seen before.
"Who are you?" said the salt doll to the sea.
The sea smilingly replied,
"Come in and see."
So the doll waded in. The farther it walked into the sea the more it dissolved, until there was only very little of it left.
Before that last bit dissolved, the doll exclaimed in wonder, "Now I know what I am!"
~Anthony de Mello
“In the moment of merging with the divine, our own sense of self is wiped out and replaced with a sense of self that is pure love and wisdom.” ~Tara Springett
"The union with the divine is more than a meditative state - it is a literal sense of being a divine being with a divine body and with divine abilities and mind.”~Tara Springett
“We are Divine enough to ask and we are important enough to receive.”
P.S: Would a being who knows he/she is a part of the Divine ever feel disempowered and helpless?
Would an Infinite being have problems???
It is when we forget who we really are that we notice problems.
What if, we could always be aware of our true identity??????What if, life being a gift was meant to be enjoyed and lived with ease and joy ????
