The Mind of Shame

If we honor all things,
Do we feel shame?

If we have self-respect,
Are we humiliated?

If we offer glory,
Are we disgraced?

If we feel esteem,
Is there any indignity?

If we see God in all things,
Is there also degradation?

God is Love,
Joy,
Peace,
Power,
Beauty,
Light,
And Life itself!

The ego causes “less than”
And always chooses separation.

Shame,
Humiliation,
Disgrace,
Indignity,
Degradation…

All rotten fruits of the ego!
It sows “less than”
And reaps… more “less than!”

But with God
Each man, each woman, each creation
Is a temple
Of honor,
Self-respect,
Glory,
Esteem–

Not for itself
Or the personal identity,
But for the Universal Life
That we are blessed to BE,
And to LIVE!

The choice is yours and mine:
Do we cultivate the mind of shame within us?
Or the Mind of God!
