And he said unto them, “within each of us lies the power of our consent to health and to sickness, to riches and to poverty, to freedom and to slavery. It is we who control these, and not another.”
A mill-man spoke and said, “Easy words for you, Master, for you are guided as we are not, and need not toil as we toil. A man has to work for his living in this world.”

fine. i'll keep mulling over this nasty habit. oddly enough this "i am less than you" thing is a recurring track – this “you have something I don't have” story that's on loop in many minds.
what the frankincense?!!? that's right. i said the F word.
Existence did not say “go forth and diminish your self.” Reality did not say “go and conceive of yourself as less.”
if you could but see that you are of equal weight and of equal light to the greatness that you observe in all and through all, you will come to live that you are your own savior. you are your only savior.
you are much MUCH more than the greatness you think you see.
lift yourself up. turn the light on in your own mind.
