Who You Are


Who you are is so much more than what you do.

The essence, shining through the heart, soul, and center, the bare and bold truth of you does not lie in your to-do list.

You are not just at the surface of your skin, not just the impulse to arrange the muscles of your face into a smile or a frown, not jut boundless energy, or bone wearying fatigue.

Delve deeper.

You are divinity; the vast and open sky of spirit. It’s the light of God, the ember at your core, the passion and the presence, the timeless, deathless essence of you that reaches out and touches me.

Who you are transcends fear and turns suffering into liberation.

Who you are is love.
