Faith is love. Love is the creator and the creation.
Love is life. Life pervades the universe.
Life is light. Light permeates the darkness.
If we find ourselves in a dark place, the path to light begins with forgiveness of ourselves. A forgiven self begets faith that all is as it should be. Faith provides a stable reality, a firm foundation, and fertile soil in which seeds of love may germinate. Sprouts of love contain within themselves the potential to become Trees of Life. All One must needs do is face the light.
How do we forgive ourselves? Begin with purifying the impurities at the root of our mind. Sit quietly and observe respiration; observe sensation within the framework of the body. Patiently and persistently, observe respiration, observe sensation. Always maintain the balance of your mind. You are bound to be successful.
