The essence of the Dharma, the Sanatana Dharma, and the Gospel is simply
this: before the slightest wave of action arises in me, there is an ocean of Gracealready here. The ocean precedes the wave. Even before "I" emerge from "Am,"divine Being has already bestowed perfect abundance, knowledge and joy.
This Being is nearer than my breath, more intimate than my soul. Subtract every action, every form, every thought, yet infinite fullness remains. I need no-thing to be complete. Only awareness.
Action that is truly creative, and truly free, arises from This.
