When I realize my spiritual identity – who I really am – then my view of the world, the way I see others, and my own identity and purpose – all change. True happiness, fulfillment and the awakening of spiritual love can now be experienced.
“The individual soul, or atma, can be compared to a diamond whose value is not appreciated because it’s covered over. A beautiful diamond may lie deep underground, covered by layers of dirt and rock. Though it exists in darkness, it is still a diamond. But because it’s so covered up, its intrinsic beauty and value go unrealized.”
–Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda
