We arrive within a second womb that covers us with a tracing of our better angel in which we grow, and all we go through—the love, the suffering, the eventual humility—all that seems unbearable wears the second womb away until the light of the One Living Soul we all come from shines through us without any covering or veil until we become our better angel. This is the purpose of the human journey.
Ultimately, our effort is to be who we are by accepting how life and all its relationships wear away the second womb that incubates our better angel. Once opened, our relationship to grace is to forever let the light of the One Living Soul come through us, never thinking that we own it but letting it enlighten us; that is, letting it use us to brighten and warm the hearts of others. May we become our better angels by falling in love with both effort and grace.
