OK, challenge: think of somebody that scares you. Maybe someone with power, maybe a hypothetical criminal, maybe someone directly involved in your life, whoever comes up for you. Now realize that God, infinite Love, made that someone, the same way She made you — as a manifestation of loving intelligence. This is your sibling, who shares your loving Father-Mother. Anything that claims otherwise is not a legitimate part of your or their identity, and can be dropped.
Does this claim seem outlandish? Realizing it and understanding why it’s true can have profound healing transformation in your (and their!) life. Do you have questions about this? Bring ’em! Leave them in the comments, or better yet bring them to our little get-together this Wednesday evening. A bunch of your brothers and sisters will be circling up to talk about how realizing our (and everybody’s) nature as a loved child of God brings harmony to situations that initially seemed otherwise. We’ll also read, pray, and sing a bit about these things. Party’s at 7:35pm @ 687 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain, MA, but is open to folks all over the world via telephone (605) 475-4000 x636128# (or Skype, upon request).
Love to have ya,
One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, “Love thy neighbor as thyself;” annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry,—whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed.
