In the spiritual universe, we only keep what we give away.
Many thoughts that masquerade as self-interest are actually thoughts of self-sabotage.
When I think about myself at the expense of others, I am subconsciously seeking to deny myself.
Surrendering to the ways of God is not an act of self-sacrifice, but rather the opposite. For in withholding from God, withholding my love, I am sacrificing a life of spiritual abundance and emotional freedom.
Today I give my love to others, that I might feel more loved myself.
May I not be tempted
To withhold my love.
In surrendering to love,
I surrender to the force
That wishes for me my greatest good.
The ego speaks, but the ego lies.
May love drown out its voice today.
