Humanity perceives that it is in it’s best interest to fragment itself through various religious identities, racism, classism etc. But if we allow ourselves to continue the legacy of separation by various religious labels, we continue our disease of separation where we divide the world into insiders who “get it” (a good thing) and outsiders who “don’t get it” (a bad thing), the purpose of life becomes so obvious! Our life work then is to decrease the bad and increase the good in the world. This has been the cause of many of the FB fights we see on posts etc. It appears that every group that was once a victim in turn becomes a perpetrator in some way. We must begin to see ourselves as part of the human family and embrace the world as our community. We must find where we are similar rather than different to gain the compassion and care we need for others, and stop the tyranny breathes from an insular world view. The healing can only begin as we learn to embrace and respect others even though their view point may differ largely from ours. Facebook and Word press are training grounds to test your tolerance or intolerance of others, tread wisely.
We constantly resist the allure of love while longing for it’s comfort. Too many broken-hearted people, why? Many want to be trusted but don’t allow themselves to fully trust others. And what is this resistance really? It is resistance to experience a bigger life in which our small identity disappears and a greater good is embraced. When we allow love to be our prayer, and we place our hearts on the line, we are truly in a win/win situation, because we are opening the portals where miracles occur, this is the very essence of truly living. We are no longer in a bad re-curring dream where things are not the way we want, but become part of a love story. When the ego is King it resists our genuinely remembering God, because in the recognition of our oneness with Him lies the death of the ego, the end of all fear, and the permission for love to light our way.
