Thank you so much for this commentary. The words, “our fundamental doubt about our inner divinity,” spoke to me directly. The understanding that doubt is a limitation was illuminating.
This week, I became aware that the idea of my own divinity was not tangible for me. The concept of my own divinity bounced off my mind as if against a hard surface, without fully entering it. The teaching and commentary made me pause and reflect. I recognized that practices such as repeating the mantra with great love and cultivating the virtues, bring me into the moist fullness of my heart, which is divine. My mind had been creating a separation where there is none.
I am grateful and feel inspired by the promise of the Gurus and the sages that constant repetition of the enlivened mantra will keep dissolving all doubts as to my own true nature.
