Have you ever wondered how our Divine Creator can be everywhere all at once? I think it is because God’s essence, Love, is in everything, and this is also how we’re all connected. We truly are made of the same stuff, at one with each other and our world. Our bodies house the love-particles of us, and we can sense love in everything using our intuition. Love-particles enliven our compassion, gratitude, devotion, and our awe of the beauty and grandeur of nature.
So, what happened to us? How come we divide into non-accepting groups built around race, religion, finances, gender and country-identities? I used to think that if we got to know people of other races, religions, sexual preferences and so on, that we’d grow to love and respect each others’ differences and cultures. A little bit of exposure, however, is not enough because we instinctively gravitate toward our ‘own kind.’ And, in many cases, together with our own, we begin to tell jokes and stories about ‘the others’ and whatever good might have been accomplished can be ruined at just one gathering.
What are we to do? If we know all humans are connected as God’s children, no matter how hard it is, we will stand and face fascism, racism, religion-isms, gender-isms (and all other forms of intolerance) wherever we may be. We can say, “No. I won’t listen to those hateful words. They are not true. We are all God’s children, and we are equally imperfect.”
