Life is about becoming. It’s not about doing and having. These are the distractions that get in our way.
As we become the person we were designed to be, we see the world through a lens of hope and love, where we are touched by mercy and compassion which overflows out of our heart.
It’s creating the space of emptiness within so God can flow through us. It’s getting out of the way and letting the fire of the divine within take hold of our thoughts, actions, and words. It’s giving our neighbors what is due to them:
Lord, despite how hard it might be, I must die to myself and sow the seeds of justice.
