I am Thou and Thou art Mine

Before you begin, take a deep breathe and find the center of your being.

Take your time here, read slowly, and then again with a deeper sacred awareness. 

I Am Thou and Thou Art Mine

Eternal Life is gained
by utter abandonment of one’s own life.
When God appears to His ardent lover,
the lover is absorbed in Him, and not so much as a hair of the lover remains.
True lovers are as shadows,
and when the sun shines in glory the shadows vanish away.


He is a true lover to God to whom God says
“I am thine and thou art Mine.”
