“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:31
The journey toward wholeness can only begin from where we are, within
our own self. We look out at the endless diversity of creation’s wonders
and see others as separate from ourselves, but wholeness does not
recognize separation and the light of God has blessed us all. Christ’s
words, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” are possible when we have
found true oneness within and then recognized it as the same without.
My journey toward wholeness has begun with daily meditation.
Transcendental meditation has provided the peace of God which passes
all understanding. This inner silence, joy, and peace spills over,
becoming a living reality during all parts of my day bringing me further
on my journey towards wholeness. Jesus is known as the Prince of Peace
with a core message of love. We as individuals and society can radiate
these same qualities together on our journey toward wholeness.
Holy God, may we treat all your children as our neighbors with love.
