For the Love

For the love of all things Holy, LITERALLY, can we please stop making fun of, complaining about, beating up and beating down, comparing, and competing against, or just being against each other, the earth and all living things, and ourselves for that matter?

If we all look for light in, and love each other ( even when we can’t see the light),

We would have
Nothing to fear
Nothing to fight
Nothing to protect ourselves from

Ready, go.........

This is the practice. All I can do is practice this. I can only dig within and find enough love and peace to see the world through this lens.
I learned about the Jewish concept of tikkun olam from Elliot Gershenson, former president and CEO of Interfaith Ministries here in Houston. He came and spoke to Dr. Bill Kerley's Ordinary Life class. He said if we all loved and honored each other for 10 minutes, we would repair and restore our world, if we all did this for the same 10 minutes. That is too long, too much to ask for? Ok, how about 5 minutes? No? Ok then for 1 minute. For just one minute. It would still be miraculous and maybe enough to change us all. Our work, our practice, is to put in as many minutes as we can everyday.

I love you

Grace in, peace out,
Brooke
