BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, December 16th, 2016 by Michael Tamura in YOU ARE THE ANSWER

“Jesus taught us not to be anxious and worry about our life, but to seek first the Source of all creation. Then, he said, all things will be provided us. After all, don’t we go to the faucet when we need water or step outside when we need a breath of fresh air? We naturally seek the source of what we need.

Many of us have, at one time or another, wrongly associated a particular teacher with the source of our truth just because he or she spoke the words that guided us to our inner truth. Then, we end up seeking the teacher for the truth instead of turning our attention toward its real source. Another example is when we panic upon discovering our bank account showing a low balance, as if the bank is the source of our money. Or, if we feel the powerful love within us only when we fall in love with someone, we may mistakenly see our partner as the source of this love. Then, if anything should take that person away from us, we might feel as if our heart was torn asunder and that we would never love again. All of our suffering begins when we lose sight of our Divinity.”

Michael J. Tamura, in “You Are the Answer”
