As we submit to our Being, another layer of the outer self is dissolved and reintegrated into our Being. This inward pull towards the Absolute depends on our willingness to let go of being the primary actor in this life and accelerates according to our ability to surrender. Cleansing is an inner avenue to return Home to God while present in the physical body. The more we allow ourselves to be dissolved, the greater the access our Being will have to the universe.
