You are baptized by water and by fire in your spiritual journey. Baptism by water reminds you of the pure essential nature that is the truth of your being. It cleanses away false beliefs and clears the veil between you and your Self.  Baptism by fire is the crucible in which your character is tempered into the strength needed to practice every-day living in alignment with who you truly are. Baptism by water includes both tears and joy. Baptism by fire includes both discipline and flexibility. Welcome the fire, embrace the water. Become the best Self you can be!
