We’re All One

At church today we were reminded to remember Who We Are. It is important to remember, because when we forget, we easily fall into attack mode.

Only those feeling the pain of a perceived disconnection with Source would ever attack. Physical assault, unkind words, judgements, our own inner critics. They all stem from a feeling of separation. We’ve all been there. We all have our stuff. We’re so hard on each other. Even harder on ourselves.

The church is small, it has two sides, with an aisle in the middle. Maybe room for 100 people. As part of the service today we were instructed to turn to the those on the other side of the aisle and help them remember by singing this to them: 

“How could anyone ever tell you You were anything less than beautiful?
How could anyone ever tell you
You were less than whole?
How could anyone fail to notice
That your loving is a miracle?
How deeply you’re connected to my soul?”

It was so very intimate. To look into the eyes of brothers and sisters, most of whom I’ve never personally met. Black, white, young, old, cognitively delayed, quick witted, wealthy, poor. To see their shoulders lose some of their slump. To witness the relief of being seen, and to feel the relief myself. It was powerful.

May you remember.

May we all.
