I found God in myself
I loved her/I loved her fiercely
– Ntozake Shange
What better place to find God than within ourselves!
It is only when we really know ourselves and affirm our-
selves for who we are that we become aware of the divin-
ity that we share with all things. We are part of the
hologram … we are the hologram. When we estrange
ourselves from ourselves, we also then lose contact with
that which is beyond ourselves.
To know “God” and to love her fiercely is to love our-
selves. Loving this God is not loving the self-centred
“God” of confusion. It is loving the God that is one, that
is within us, and beyond us. It is loving God as we
CONTACT with God is so simple, and we make it so difficult.
