This is the goal: to be one within ourselves and one with the One. That is why ‘e pluribus Unum’ is such a powerful statement for the identity of a country: ‘Out of many, One.’ This is the identity of this nation, and this is our goal, individually, as well, that we may learn to be ourselves in freedom and yet one with all others.
Allow yourself to know that every breath that you take is a breath of Divine life, the life that enables you to live in your body. That life is not just physical life oxygenating your blood and your cells. It’s also spiritual life that is part of your incarnation. So, you breathe, and you know you’re alive, and you celebrate.
