“We cannot fill vessels already full. They must first be emptied.” (Science and Health, page 201)
To think we can add a spiritual sense of ourselves, the good and pure and right qualities to a mortal sense of self, full of darkness, fear, anger, and gloom, is folly. There is no room for the abundant wonder that is the truth of your being to be confined to such a limited space. We must empty our vessels, and do it with willingness and joy.
To give up the false sense of personality, human history, and sense perceptions, is to give up everything that is holding up your life, your happy and perfect life. We must see and see through these preoccupations, the mesmerizing sense of ourselves as less than worthy, less than beautiful, less than successful. We must abandon the self-judgment, condemnation of self and of others, and the mourning over our lives.
Let divine Love’s ocean of love flood in and carry off all the detritus of human beliefs. The junk that gloms up our thinking and our days, causing us to ruminate, lose sleep, lose focus, lose joy, is ready to be carried away. And with this acceptance of Love and rejection of the false sense of ourselves and others, we are lighter, freer, more right and more real. We have cleaned our house of everything that never belonged to us or suited us, so that we can have a bright and clear space, already beautifully arrayed with those qualities that look and feel right to us and to those around us.
Let go with joyous expectancy of a personal sense of yourself, and so discover your true self, emptied of fear and doubt and sickness and full of the Life that is Love.
