Towards a New Humanity
You --- you --- you: human, you are a sacred being! You, each and every one of you, are a manifestation of the Divine! Through and through: through flesh, blood, and bone... through mind, heart, and soul... all the way through into the very Holy Secret of You: You are the very Life and One Love of the Holy One. This core truth is not contingent upon what you think, still less is it dependent upon how anyone might tell you to think! Before thought, you were... after thought, you will become, even more, You!
If you shed as much as you can of how / what someone else has thought for you... if you can summon the courage to strip down to your essential nature of being: there in that deep pure silence, your heart can intuit the truth of these words... also there in that place of secret knowing, you can discover the unity of consciousness, of harmony, and of wholeness, a way to experience the principles of universal mysticism and sacred action... you can choose to return to that place as you will, and also how to create in the day-to-day, the paradise adventure that is possible for everyone on this precious blue Planet...
You! You can choose to assist in the sacred actions that will give birth to a new humanity, to a new Planetary culture of kindness, liberation, beauty, and well-being for all... The truth of our human possibilities is alive in each one of us -- that truth is woven into our very DNA -- and it has been just waiting for this moment in time to begin its manifestation... this dream of Oneness in Paradise for every part and particle of creation existed before the Beginning... this Mystery Play of the Holy One lives within us and is seeking its release upon the Universe!
You! How are you going to respond? What limits are you imposing upon your imagination and your desire to love?
There is Only One. Love Everyone. Feed Everyone.
