Self

In him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28, NIV).

There is […] one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

****************************************************************

 

I know my ideal self
Does not exist, Lord,

While my outward self
Is merely a defence.

So perhaps my shadow self
Is all I am, Lord?

No wonder that
I often use pretence!

Yet, in truth, I have
No separate self at all, Lord,

Though self is an illusion
I hold fast.

But now’s the time
To let it go forever, Lord,

For I see I’m simply
Part of you – at last!
