The Morning Blessing: You Are Not Your Body

You are not your body. Your body is a vehicle. You are that which animates.Your body and assigns purpose to its being. You are a being temporarily being a human being.

Some days it is all too easy to lose sight of this, given the dense accumulation of atoms and other physical material indicative of a third-dimensional world. You are not a third-dimensional being, but you have altered your formlessness into a being equipped with unique and specific qualities, one of which is to understand and therefore transcend that which is limiting into that which is limitless.

The sole purpose of the third dimension is to ask and answer the question: Does the physical world contain you, or do you contain it? It is a question well worth asking, but its answer cannot be processed by the mind, regardless of how expansive the mind might be. The answer must be arrived at via experience, both physical and nonphysical. That is why the answer lies in the journey and not the destination my friends, which is simply a point in time that exists just prior to the next beginning.

Makes you reflect on your true identity, doesn't it?

Rev. Angela


There is One life, that life is God's life, and that life is my life now. I am one with the life of God because I am made out of it. What this means is that I am made of Godstuff! I think about this deeply, understanding the full impact of what this means. Everything I am, whether I call it good or bad, is the Pure Divine Essence of life in form.

I choose today to remember the Divinity within me, that refreshing enthusiastic nature that is my source and my truth. While it may be temporarily covered up or hidden, it is always there, always blazing its Divine Light within. Being connected means constant conscious commitment to that which brings about true spiritual growth and transformation. Today I erase all doubt that I am other than an Eternal vessel expressing in the human domain. To serve myself and others to the fullest I consciously bring this Divine Essence into all that I see act and do.

This awakening in my mind and heart, this spiritualization of my perspective, works wonders. And because of it I experience the grace and power of Spirit in all situations. I thank God for this wellspring of remembrance, and I let this incarnation of Self now stand as a testimony to a great formless, limitless Spirit. And so it is.
