Heavenly Creature? Me? Why thank you.

I don’t consider myself to be a religious person at all, but this quote of Swami Vivekenada’s made me think of things from a fresh perspective. Just for a moment I felt at one with the universe… omnipotent, connected to everything, capable of anything.

Just as certain world religions say that people who do not believe in a God outside themselves are atheist, we say that a person who does not believe in himself is an atheist. Not believing in the splendor of one’s own soul is what we call atheism.

Believe in yourself – you are god. I kind of like that..

The moment passed soon enough however, and I went back to being just me, squeezed awkwardly into the corner of a packed rush hour tube train, somewhere under the streets of Camden.
