Audio: Your Divine Core
One drop of water taken from the ocean is just as perfect ocean water as the whole great body. The constituent elements of water are exactly the same, and they are combined in precisely the same ratio or perfect relation to each other, whether we consider one drop, a pailful, a barrel full, or the entire ocean out of which the lesser quantities are taken; each is complete in itself; they differ only in quantity or degree. Each contains the whole; and yet no one would make the mistake of supposing from this statement that each drop is the entire ocean. –Emilie Cady
That each person is an expression of God, is a fundamental spiritual principle. By this we mean that the core of every person is divine. How each individual expresses this divinity, of course, is varied. So varied, in fact, that much of what we see being played out on the human level indicates that the understanding of a core divinity has been lost to many. Certainly the mainstream Christian approach that insists on humankind’s sinful nature—sin to the core, so to speak—doesn’t offer a lot of help when it comes to realigning our thinking with the truth of our being.
Because we live our lives according to what we believe about ourselves, it is important that we come to the truth that we are spiritual beings expressing through a consciousness that is likely littered with misperceptions that clog our thinking. Our work in spiritual growth is more about letting go of these misperceptions than about becoming better people. To be perfect even as our heavenly Father is perfect is to recognize that perfection already exists, that we are to wake up to it rather than create it.
Think of your true essence as a single drop of pure ocean water existing in and as you right now. Imagine this pure drop expanding into a fountain that literally fills you from the inside out. See this flow continue into and through every aspect of your life and you have an understanding of true spiritual power.
