In The Image

Every time I had the good fortune to research into someone's religion I found "GOD" to be in the image of the people to whom the religion belongs.
- Yosef Ben-Jochannon

Would the Creator, with all the love, power and wisdom of the universe, make us all so different and then deem only one right way to get to His kingdom? I would think not. As an expression of the awesome power of the ultimate creative energy, we the people have been blessed to bring forth various expressisons. We call it race, culture, tradition and heritage. In essence, who we are collectively is a unique expression of God. No one knows better than He the beauty we bring to life, and He cannot be wrong. As we lift our minds and hearts to know, to be aware and to understand that we all are expressions of the Most High, we will begin to recognize the beauty of God at our disposal. Our world reflects God's strength as tradition, God's wisdom as culture, God's love as race and ethnicity. Who are we to decide which part of God is the best.

God's strength, wisdom, power and love are being expressed as me.

Have you ever wondered why certain people are expected to do things a little faster or better than everyone else? The simple answer may be because they can. Have you ever wondered why you are expected to do the impossible, achieve the unattainable or overcome the insurmountable? Very simply because you can. You know how you can just look at sombody and know they can do it? Well, the exact same thing is true about you. Unfortunately, we are not always aware just how magnificent we are. The same light others see shining blinds us about ourselves. We become content being like everyone else when something inside tells us we are not. But we plod along being angry or bitter when others expect us to do what they cannot. The key is not to do what others do and say; it is to know we can, believe we can and do what we can to the best of our ability. If we know what to epect from ourselves, we will always live up to our greatest expectation.

I am expecting as much as I can because I CAN
