We are Divine. Our RIGHT to our inalienable Divinity is not given to us by some OTHER Power, like the Church or the Government but lies within. This is the Essence of Mysticism opposed to being Religious. Con Artists want us to believe that they can give us Divinity through the Purse, Pen, Sword or Heart. A True Spiritual Leader is like a Gardner. They Nurture our innate Divinity, they do not create it. A Gardner does not turn Turnips into Carrots but nurtures the Turnip as a Turnip.
