Matthew 12:49-50

And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, Jesus said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

+++

This was Jesus’ response when told that his mother and brothers were outside waiting to speak to him.

Jesus once again uses an exaggeration to make a point.

He would never intentionally insult his own family.

But the point is: When we are consciously awake to God’s loving Presence, when we are living in the Flow of life as the beloved children of Yahweh, we are all one.

Actually, we are all one in God in whom “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28) whether we are conscious of it or not.

But when we are not awakened to this truth, we create divisions and the “other” and live in delusion.

When we are aware of this Oneness in which we are part, life unfolds with a sense of peace even amidst the storms that are inevitable due to the disharmony of those acting out of the delusion of separation.

All creation is groaning in labor pains (Romans 8:22) for the realization of the Oneness that is being realized on this earthly plain and in the entire universe.

The best way to awaken to this truth is to be present.

Meditate, practice Centering Prayer, take nature walks in total openness to all that is.

Breathe deeply.

Be.
