John 13:16-17

“Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it.”

Jesus said this after washing his followers’ feet.

Despite being the master, Jesus took the role of servant.

He wanted his followers to mirror his actions.

It’s this type of philosophy that got him crucified.

Those holding institutional power, whether governmental or religious, do not take kindly to the idea that they relinquish that power.

To tell people that all are equal and should be treated as such will only make those at the bottom like you.

That is, unless you are awakened to the underlying reality that we’re all connected to the same Source.

We’re all like rays of light from the same sun.

We are spawned by God, or Love itself, and will return to Love.

What we do to or for another we do to or for ourselves.

That’s why Jesus said that whatever we do for the least of these, we do to him (Matthew 25:40).

God is in each of us and we are in God.

As I often quote St. Paul who said that in God “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

This is hard to grasp for people who are operating from the control of their egos.

The ego will create stories all about the little “me” it constructs based on all the stories of your life.

But when all the stories dissolve, when you simply come into the presence of the Divine Presence, right now, right here, you are simply part of the Great I Am.

You are loved and totally accepted.

Can you live from that place of love and oneness with all creation?

Can you share that love equally with everyone and everything?

Then, as Jesus said, “blessed are you.”
