Look at the pearl. What do you see? Yourself.

God reflects himself in you. God created you in his image: Perfect, blessed. God makes no mistakes, but loves, lives and moves through multiplicity.

 You are his beloved child.

Jesus teaches the disciples to call God our Father,

to illustrate the closeness of the relationship. We are his children and heirs.  We don´t have to fight for this right, it is given to us.

 

The gold bead

Gold as symbol of the noblest, precious and shining

A father came before us and gave us life. God is before me and closer to me, than I am to myself. I rely on him completely. See your own reflection in the pearl!

To recognize God is to recognize yourself. In the image of God.
