Reason to Rejoice

We exist within Eternal Love so that we might receive it and give it.

Psalm 136:2

Praise the God of gods; for his mercy endures forever.

The love of God is sustaining all that is…and yet it can seem so hard to find.

Look at the incredible lack of compassion demonstrated across the world!

I would say it is due to the delusion created by unconscious human beings who are in the grips of their egos.

They are simply not awakened to the fact that God is love (1 John 4:8) in Whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

The pattern of Love is to lay itself down for another…even to death.

Jesus demonstrated this not only in his physical death but in the way he poured himself out daily in the service of others (Philippians 2:5-8).

Death and the daily dying to the ego-generated-self are just doors to transformed life.

This is the pattern of Love…or we could call it Mercy.

It is Infinite…like a never-ending waterwheel.

We are all called to participate in this Flow of Goodness…especially in the midst of cruelty generated by deeply unconscious behavior.

Let us live from the place of unconditional love that is freely given to us each moment by our Maker…and gratefully share it!
