on remembering who we are
We are heir to the laws that govern the world we identify in. If we think of ourselves as only beings of the mortal world, then the laws of scarcity and death that rule this world, will rule us. If we think of ourselves as children of God, whose real home lies in a realm of awareness beyond this world, then we will find we are "under no laws but God's"
Our sense of who we are determines our behavior. If we think we're small, limited, inadequate creatures, then we tend to behave that way, and the energy we radiate reflects those thoughts. If we think we're spiritual beings with an infinite abundance of love and power to bring to the world, then we tend to behave that way. Who we think we are determines what we do; what we do then determines what we experience; and what we experience then determines our suffering or joy. It's hard to overestimate the importance of remembering who we are.
