By Dominique Harrier
When you make the switch in your heart and mind about who you really are; That is to say, when you finally get it and the proverbial lightbulb goes on. In that magical moment you brush aside all the euphemisms and you are suddenly able to ground the truth inside of yourself;
That yes, remarkably, inexplicably…. You are GOD. You lose your shyness and any false sense of guilt or arrogance, or any attempted disbelief at this preposterous notion… …
Without even stopping to question yourself "How could it be?;" you say it to yourself as if for the first time, and realize all that it means.
You've been playing an amazing game of Hide and go seek. And now you have come face to face quite suddenly and unexpectedly with the one who was hiding inside you. You're it.!
You might have glibly said to yourself before, that you're a part of The Source; but that was just your soul causing you to practice by saying it yourself in preparation for this moment of truth. That timid previous declaration has no place in this particular moment.
………Now there's joy welling up inside of you, a relief, a knowing and a homecoming. And you wonder if anyone else knows this amazing secret….not that you are GOD, but that they too are GOD. The God that is magnificent, wise, and pure love………..
This is the moment of certainty that quiets all the doubts that you've ever experienced. And your awakening to this knowledge is a holy one.
If you take the time to mentally record it………. you will see that there are no sounds, no movement. You have ceased breathing in or out. Therefore time, which was hitherto held in the breath, has also temporarily ceased displaying it's illusion into the Hologram.
In this momentous moment of your re-birth, The Universe has also held it's breath. And not satisfied with just holding it's breath, it has commanded the winds, the light and indeed every living creature. to be still, to hush……….… in honor of your enlightenment!.
When you look around you, there is nothing to be seen but yourself. True there are objects, trees, the sky, all of nature, but there is only you and an incredible light coming from somewhere inside you. You know the truth and now you are free. Like a majestic wild animal suddenly let out of a cruel confining cage, your spirit soars towards the light.
This is what enlightenment is!.
You are free!. The cage can never again imprison you. You've uncovered the longed-for being who before seemed only to be a complex, and difficult to pin down shadowy myth. This being is an Intelligence, a fearless guide, an authority on the nature of your deepest self.
A gentle friend who insists that you are so much more than your human self, or your human name, or your human being: That you've been misled and mistaken up to this point. You will overflow with more love than you've ever thought possible.
Imagine if you can, becoming enlightened and falling in love all at once!. Because You will fall in love with trees and rocks; with the sky and even with beggars and thieves who will all suddenly become worthy of this effluence of love overflowing in your heart.
In fact every previously unlovable thing or person will now be easy to love. Because you will be unable to stop yourself. So there is really only one solution, and that is to give away such an embarrassment of riches.
You can now see clearly that the Divine Source, this hitherto difficult to perceive God, is in all .And that underneath all outward appearances, this source, is reflecting back love to you. Smiling, winking, laughing at, and with you.
This Source is majestic and it made itself you.
