Paramahansa Yogananda

I enjoyed reading The Autobiography of a Yogi, and this quote is my takeaway:

Each human being has been created by God as a soul that will uniquely manifest some special attribute of the Infinite before resuming its Absolute identity. All men, endowed thus with a facet of Divine Individuality are equally dear to God.

The prism is another image I like, that light shines through the prism and then you see all the individual colors. To contemplate on the idea that we are a manifestation of the divine, perhaps as an individual facet or several facets even, is awesome. To think thta Christ was the word, and a word became man, that we are a thought or a word or a creation or a facet or a manifestation of something so beyond, so amazing, well…

Our life is a life of decisions, but it is also a life of discovering and remembering, who we are, what we are meant to be or are capable of. It takes some effort to strip away the blinders and come to these realizations.
