"I"

“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter - often an unconscious
but still a faithful interpreter - in the eye.”
(Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre)
 
 
God is the source of life - shouldn't we be able to find the essence of that source in our lives?  Yet when we examine our lives, in what part do we find God? What part is the "I"? God is love, peace, abundance, power, strength, mercy, truth, balance and joy. For many of us, life is lack, limitation, strife, stress, chaos, confusion, oppression and hate. Your race, my race; their goals, our goals; your religion, my religion have replaced the sense of oneness known as God.  Did God create this mess?  No, "I" did.  The small part of "I" that wants control and the power. The "I" that is fear, arrogance, anger and pride. The "I" that holds on to pain because "I don't know what to do." The "I" that wants it my way because "I" can take care of myself."   The "I" that can't figure out which part of God is and which part "I" am because "I" have forgotten that all God is I Am. If only "I" would let God do His part, [I believe] we would be fine.  How can we serve God today?
