With gratitude say yes to your amazing personhood.  Yes without alteration or a nagging need for self-improvement.  Say yes to loving yourself with all your stuff, because Spirit made you just this way.  Know with me there is a reason for your being.  Perhaps you cannot put it into words but your very being is extraordinary because there is no other like you and you were made to be here at this time reading these words, and never to lose that wonderful attachment to what is eternal and sweet and kindly. That is as much “you” as anything else,  You have come this far, not in spite of your experiences, but because of them.    Reverend Nancy Zala

Scripturally we could say that you are the image and likeness of God.  You could say that you are another way the universe becomes conscious of itself.  You could say we are the infinite field of unfolding possibility.    ....Michael Bernard Beckwith
