Would it make sense that in order to have good in our lives, we must stop condemning all that is good within us as God? When do we condemn God within us? Whenever we use the I am statement followed with something negative, as in “I am ugly”, “I am stupid”, “I am a failure”. This is because “I AM” is the name of God, and therefore these words stand for “God in me is”. As such, these words hold tremendous creative power and what follows these words will be a reflection of, or a manifestation of, our creative statement. We can easily see that if what follows these very powerful words is negative or self-defeating, then our experience cannot be good or beneficial to us, or reflect who we are in God.
Depression is the result of suppressing who we are, what we feel and what we desire. The word “depress” means to “lessen the activity or force of, to press down; cause to sink to a lower level, to lessen in value”. Simply, when we are depressed, we are not accepting, expressing or being who we really are.
Depression is like a heavy gray rain cloud over our heads. But imagine that we are the sun. And all that is needed for the sun to come out, is for that rain cloud to release its rain and move on. We all have experienced how fresh and new the world seems after a good rain, with the sun sparkling on the left-over drops of water. Everything seems vibrant and washed clean. Therefore the answer to depression is not to try to deny it is there, but to express whatever is built up in the cloud as sadness, despair, anger, or worry. But here is the key: it won’t help to express it in a way that reinforces it. If we keep in our minds the image of a rain cloud releasing and moving on – dissipating, then we have an image that will help us release in a way that honors the feelings, yet holds the true sense of who we are – the sun.
As we express, part of us is the Mother holding the child who has been hurt, giving comfort and love, and the wisdom of the Mother who reminds us of who we are, and what our reality is. This is divine Mother Love. Mother Love brings us all we need, when we open our heart to her. Mother brings us closer to Father. It is through the Mother’s Love that we reach Father Spirit. For Mother is Father here with us. Mother is an expression of Father. Father and Mother are one.
When we dislike who we are, it is because we do not see ourselves clearly. The forces of this world, those who are currently “in power” count on this rejection of who we are to continue. That way we can be kept down, dependent, suppressed and controlled, and they keep “their power”. But true power is of God, and those who have turned pure hearts away from their God can only hold onto it and continue their manipulation and suppression as long as those who love God but have forgotten that love, continue to accept a lesser identity, continue to accept the suppression of the Mother that they are, one with Father.
Imagine a world coup, where millions of those who love God accept who they are, and God is free to act through them, to bring the abundant life to those who really deserve it. Imagine millions rising up in acceptance of who they are, like suns (Sons) rising on the horizon, dispelling the darkness of night and washing the earth clean of her misery, leaving her shining in all her glory, the glory of God. We are winning. May it Be.
I accept myself as I AM You.
I bask in the Sun-Light of Your Love.
I AM grateful for the abundant Life.
I AM the vision of Victory.
I AM victorious Joy.
