This morning I awoke thinking of the energy of the earth…of God…of humanity. Are we really all connected as one? Like a beautiful mosaic? I am surrounded by a community of seekers. Why and how do we find each other? Is it by accident? By choice? By a power greater than we can even imagine?
Surrounded by seekers of God…of creativity…of wholeness. Are they not one in the same?
Consider the following thoughts:
“As individual stones, we can do little with them
except compare them and judge their beauty and value. When, however, all these little stones are brought together in one big mosaic portraying the face of Christ, who would ever question the importance of any one of them? That’s community, a fellowship of little people who together make God visible in the world.” --Henri Nouwen
“For as the body is only as healthy as its individual cells, the world is only as healthy as its individual souls.” --Mark Nepo
“The search for contentment is, therefore, not merely a self-preserving and self-benefiting act, but also a generous gift to the world.” –Elizabeth Gilbert
My creativity heals myself and others. There is a divine plan of goodness for my work. –lucy
And, last but not least…a repeat from yesterday’s post:
"Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world" Lao-Tzu
"Across the centuries, we have this timeless medicine: Live directly, wait, and care for your soul as if it were the whole world." Mark Nepo
I am blessed to be a part of this community of seekers. Today, may you care for your own soul as gently as if it were that of another.
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
--Jesus - Luke 10:27
