Q: We love You. But how can we love ourselves when we have so much guilt?
M: Guilt is our worst enemy. God loves us. If we want to love ourselves, there is only one way: Learn to know who we really are first. The one we cannot love now is not the real one. The one who makes mistakes, the one who likes to drink coffee, the one who likes to drive fast and the one whose eye on the neighbor’s wife is not our real Self! Our real Self is splendid, is glorious, is powerful, is loving, is compassionate, is “all-One” with the universe and with God. So, it’s only when we learn to know this real Self that we can love ourselves. You love me because God is in me, and you can feel that. You can feel Hirm through this physical body. That’s why you love me. You don’t love me because of this physical, small frame. So, in order to love yourself like that, you must learn to know who you really are. And I will show you. (Applause)
The only thing that separates us from God is our own thinking that God is separated from us. So there is a way to banish this thinking and go directly through, to see God. Then you know God is you, you are Hiers children. You are a part of Hirm and you are one with Hirm, just like the drop of water in the ocean. The drop of water in the ocean is also the ocean.
