“On Letting Go of Who We Aren’t So We Can Be Who We Are

When Michelangelo was asked how he created a piece of sculpture, he answered that the statue already existed within the marble. God Himself had created the Pietà, David, Moses. Michelangelo’s job, as he saw it, was to get rid of the excess marble that surrounded God’s creation.

So it is with you. The perfect you isn’t something you need to create, because God already created it.

The perfect you is the love within you. Your job is to allow God to remove the fearful thinking that surrounds your perfect self, just as excess marble surrounded Michelangelo’s perfect statue.

The great, enlightened beings of the world are those who have done that—who have actualized the spiritual potential that exists inside us all. By following their path, we follow the path that leads to our own enlightenment. Our task is to drop the nonessential clutter that surrounds our shining selves.”
