If all of the love in the world
were contained in one star, it
would shine for you.
If all the answers in the world were
contained in one word, that word would
speak your name.
If the full sea of peace were
contained in one drop of water,
that drop of water would be on your tongue.
You are the beginning and the end,
the alpha and omega, the source
and answer, the thought that reaches across
time and the timeless beat
of the heart of God.
Your importance is immeasurable,
for you are what there is.
The entire universe is
contained in one atom of your being.
Each breath you take gives life to all that is.
You do not have to try to be this
vital force. You simply are.
Now, right now, go deeply into your
heart and find the peace and love
that reside there.
Now, right now, embrace yourself
completely with love,
granting to yourself the right to be who
you are, as you are,
without criticism and contempt,
without blame and regret.
You, exactly as you are,
are good. You are what is needed.
You are what is wanted.
The entire universe embraces you
with love, and when it does so,
it simply embraces itself.
You cannot lose the love that is
there for you, for you are made of love.
You cannot lose the light that
shines for you, for you are made of light.
You cannot disturb the peace
that contains you, for you are made
of peace, peace and joy and light and love,
all made manifest in your being.
Simply be who you are and you will
hear the angels singing your name.
