“The universe is created to support us in every way. God is constantly expressing His infinite care for us. The only problem is, we don’t agree with Him. We don’t love ourselves as He loves us, and so we block our experience of the miracles to which we’re entitled.
The world has taught us we are less than perfect. In fact, we have been taught that it’s arrogant to think we’re deserving of total happiness. This is the point where we’re stuck.
If anything comes into our lives—love, success, happiness—which seems like it would be suited to a “deserving” person, our subconscious mind concludes it can’t possibly be for us. And so we sabotage.
Few people have wronged us like we’ve wronged ourselves. No one has snatched the candy away from us like we’ve thrown it away from ourselves. We have been unable to accept joy because it doesn’t match who we think we are.
In contrast to the ego’s meager appraisal of our worth, stands truth as God created it. There is no light more bright than the light that shines within us. Whether or not we see that light is irrelevant. It’s there because God placed it there.”
