Let him be freed from all the thoughts you had of sin in him. And now you are prepared for freedom. If you have been practicing thus far in willingness and honesty, you will begin to sense a lifting up, a lightening of weight across your chest, a deep and certain feeling of relief.

Quote of the Day
"Many of our traditional notions of success rely on our talking ourselves into the belief that we're special and we have something special to offer.

The belief in specialness, therefore, is delusional and thus breeds fear."
