When I am feeling well-balanced in all ways, I experience my physical body as limber, strong, and able. Emotionally, I perceive an optimism that pervades all I do. I am blessed with mental acuity—I think with clarity and purpose. Yet what I value most is the awareness and acceptance of my spiritual nature.
I am not reliant on another person, place, or thing to make me whole. Rather, it is my spiritual awareness that lifts me when I feel tired, despondent, or confused. When I affirm that I am a creation of the Divine, I find the strength and mental sharpness to do whatever I am called to do.
I am first and foremost a spiritual being. I am whole, capable, and complete, just as I am.
Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness.”—Genesis 1:26
