Help Others, Die to Your Old Self
To truly help others - to intercede for them - one must love.
To truly love - to sacrifice for them - one must know God.
To know God - to understand His will - one must reach for Christ.
To reach for Christ - to go beyond the self - one must contemplate Him.
To contemplate Christ - to reside in Him - one must let go.
To let go - to enter the Divine cloud - one must trust.
To trust - to be bathed in the luminous darkness - one must be sanctified.
To be sanctified in the Holy Spirit - to live in God - one must detach.
Each night before bed, pray to die to your old self.
Each morning when you wake, pray to live in God every minute of the day.
By this sacrifice, you will be redeemed and others will be helped.
