“I am a free Spiritual Being, manifested from the Source of All Life. This is my true identity…”

This quote from the Circle of Miracles Declaration has played a significant role in my life. One Sunday morning, while saying the Declaration during the service, I felt a heavy mantle of gravity lift from my shoulders. It was a weight of aspects of my religious inheritance that I could no longer carry. I realized I had been taught to worship a description, not essence. For me the words, “Source of All Life”, cradles the Divine Essence. There are no elaborations or people-made embellishments with which to struggle or fight. It fosters oneness of All for it resides within All, no matter what flavor.
