You may feel very proud and believe that you are in control of your life. You are not…your ego has deceived you.

God is your source; you are completely dependent on Him. Your every breath and heartbeat is by His will. God provides and allows all the circumstances of your life. You can do nothing of yourself despite appearances.

Purge your heart of all pride in yourself, achievements, and possessions. Acknowledge and thank God every day for your blessings and his mercy. Humility and gratitude to Him should always be your state of mind.

“…seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33, KJV).

Sharing with Illumination readers

I wrote a tribute to my father for Illumination in 2020: The Most Influential Person in my Life has been My Father.

My father, Frieden, has expressed he would like to begin sharing his thoughts with readers here. Thus, I plan to start posting messages from my father for Illumination readers.

His first message:

I am 82 and reflecting upon my life. Many experiences … good and evil. My analysis and conclusion: Love is the answer — the only meaning in life. All else is illusion and ego deception. Love the person in every encounter. You will have a miraculous and happy life.
