To treat every human being as a shrine of God is to fulfill all religion.

     Bowl of Saki, January 20, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

This is something I believe in but find difficulty in being able to live up to every day. Maybe it's because for most, those who've raised us do not always consider the indwelling spirit in them to be God. Maybe it's because the idea's of how this expression "should be" have been romanticized and brought about expectations and suffering. Then there's the habits we've knowingly, unknowingly embraced or demonstrated over the course of our lives that step on beauty. It's important we continue to try, even if our efforts are misinterpreted by others or that we do fall short- continue to aim high and continue to meditate. Knowing we are born in limitation, persistence towards the ideal is the best we can hope for, returning more and more to Stillness...

I am also going to quote Lahiri Mahasaya here...
“Always remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you. Reflect that some day you will suddenly have to leave everything in this world so make the acquaintanceship of God now. Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception. Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles. Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. Cease being a prisoner of the body; using the secret key of Kriya, learn to escape into Spirit.”
