The Kingdom of heaven is not within you; it is you.

It is hard to understand what “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you” really means. This is because it is not understandable to the ego, which interprets it as if something outside is inside, and this does not mean anything. The word “within” is unnecessary. The Kingdom of Heaven is you. What else but you did the Creator create, and what else but you is His Kingdom? This is the whole message of the Atonement; a message which in its totality transcends the sum of its parts. You, too, have a Kingdom that your spirit created. It has not ceased to create because of the ego’s illusions. Your creations are no more fatherless than you are. Your ego and your spirit will never be co-creators, but your spirit and your Creator will always be. Be confident that your creations are as safe as you are. The Kingdom is perfectly united and perfectly protected, and the ego will not prevail against it. Amen. T-4.III.1 1 - 13

“We are the world” is a great song. It should be sung in every church, in every heart, in the world. It is an expression of the idea that the “Kingdom of God” is not outside and must be internalized, but rather the expression of our inherent worth and dignity.

So today, be who deep down you truly are. Drop the ego and as they say in California, “Keep it real.”
