Here is an excerpt from my e-book (in the making):
The fact is you are alive. God has given you the gift of life. By virtue of your breath and your source, you have God-essence. You are connected to God and her/his essence wherever you are, whatever you do, whoever you are, regardless of your belief or faith in God’s existence. God loves you for all of you. God is unconditional love. God has unconditional love for you. There is no need to personify God in the image and likeness of man. We are made in the image and likeness of God so let us raise the standards by which we see ourselves. To deny your connection to God can be a form of self-denial. Just like in nature, the water that comes out of the faucet and water that is in the ocean are both part of mother earth; both have the same essence and both valuable in its own way. Why do we deny ourselves of our God-essence.
Go back to the basics. You are love. You are love-divine, deeply and forever connected to your God-essence. You are worthy of this love. Love knows no bounds and is always expansive. God loves you!
