Believe in whatever you wish. It doesn’t matter. The important thing to remember is that everything believes in you.

Conflict figures prominently in the news. Someone always seems to be attacking someone else because they have different beliefs. Political doctrine, economic theories, scientific explanations, right to choose/right to life, marital equality, religious sects—these are just a few of the issues generating contention in the public eye.
Historically, humans have justified elitism by the need to be right. We’re convinced that our ideas are correct and anyone who thinks differently is at best confused and at worst subhuman. Polarized issues serve to demonstrate our belief that we are separate from each other, and therefore some of us are better or more worthy than others.
Most of us have the core belief that we are separate from the divine, and therefore somehow lacking or broken. Perceived differences from each other allow us to judge others and feel better about ourselves. We seem less incomplete when we believe we’re right.
The judgments and conflicts persist because we forget the most important truth of our existence—we are intrinsically divine and interconnected with all of creation. A splinter of divine consciousness exists in each and every being and thing in existence. There is nothing that is not by its nature divine. All is connected by eternal, loving consciousness (aka the sharing).
This immutable truth makes all evaluations and differences irrelevant. If we are all interconnected and divine, nothing and no one is any better or worse than any other being or thing. We simply come in different flavors.
The sharing sees every portion of itself as beautiful, whole, and complete. It believes in our oneness and perfection, whether or not we do.
When we view ourselves and others as the sharing views us, we honor the essential divinity of everything and everyone. The world becomes a magical place, a playground for expressions of divine, loving consciousness. We don’t need to worry, compare, fret, or evaluate. We simply can have fun enjoying whatever experiences come our way.
Let’s take a few minutes to connect consciously with our inner divinity—our sharing within—to find out how the divine views us. We will start by allowing our breath to relax and become soft and steady. We’ll also picture our sharing within as a ball of golden light in the center of our heart region. Every breath in fills the ball with brilliance. Every exhalation spreads the light throughout our body and our environment.
We will continue the breathing and light visualization until we feel peaceful, calm, and assured. We will recognize these feelings as the hallmark of conscious connection with our sharing within.
We will think of one way in which we judge ourselves as lacking, something that seems to be supported by the previous day’s events. This will be something we did that we believe we shouldn’t have done, something we didn’t do that we believe we should have done, or some way in which we believe our body to be imperfect.
Perhaps we believe we are inconsiderate and selfish because we forgot a friend’s birthday. Perhaps we think we are unattractive because we aren’t thin. Perhaps we started an argument with a loved one and judge ourselves to be hot-tempered and intolerant.
We will focus again on our sphere of golden heart light and relax into the calm and steadiness of our sharing within. We’ll breathe golden light into our self-judgment and asking our sharing within to help us see ourselves as the sharing sees us.
We will remember that the sharing is endless loving interconnection. Whatever we did or didn’t do, however our body is or isn’t, our perceived imperfection cannot possibly dim the eternal beauty and wonder of all creation.
We’ll picture a mirror in front of us, breathe golden heart light onto the mirror, and will see ourselves as we truly are. Perhaps we are not selfish, but merely busy and distracted. Perhaps we aren’t overweight, but merely our own unique shape. Perhaps we aren’t mean-tempered, but just stressed and tired.
We’ll see ourselves lovingly, and kindly, with full belief in our essential wholeness and beauty. We will look upon ourselves and recognize what the sharing sees—a perfect expression of divine love.
We’ll breathe this acknowledgment throughout every cell of our body, and out into the world around us. We are all healed. We are all whole. We are all well. We live in light and love. We are all joined together in the sharing.
