“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”
― Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi
Humans are essentially spiritual beings who have the unlimited power of the Spirit of the Universe. This power is God’s and yet it also belongs to each one of us. It is only when we realize oneness with the Divine Source, that we become filled with its power. We are never separate from the Divine Source. Through the Divine Spark within us, which is our real selves, we are always connected with the Infinite.
The separation which we might feel and experience is mental. Thought is a spiritual power that has tremendous potency. Our thoughts are a conduit or a channel to connect us with the power house of the Universe or cut us off entirely from it. But even our thoughts cannot touch our intrinsic connection with the Divine Source. This power is unconquerable and transcends the physical and even the mental order.
The Divine Spark within us is connected to the Sacred Flame, thus making us Divine. When we realize our own spiritual identity, we know that we can never die, be defeated or fail. We must learn to think after the Spirit, as a spiritual being, instead of after the flesh, as a material creature. All that we need is within us. No one answers our prayers and desires; we answer our own prayers and desires by the power that the Universe has given each one of us. We find that power deep within us. The Kingdom of God is truly within us.
It is in the Divine Spirit that we live and move and have our being. As soon as we realize the truth of our relationship with the Infinite, we pass from weakness to power, from death unto life.
