I Am Also That

Be with the sinner, the beggar, the prostitute.
Be with the prince and the egalitarian.
See yourself as the worm squiggling in the water on the sidewalk.
See yourself as the elephant strolling majestically through the jungle.
See yourself as royalty atop the elephant.
See yourself as the ant beneath the elephant’s foot.
Lay down your sword and your scales so that We may walk hand in hand, heart to heart and you will suffer no more.     ~God~

Can you stand next to a sinner, a beggar or a prostitute and say, “I am also that?” Can you say it standing next to a prince or an egalitarian? We think we don’t hold ourselves above or below another but, until we can do this exercise and mean it, we are judging ourselves and judging others.  To find true inner peace you must lay down your sword and your scales and walk hand in hand, heart to heart with the Divine. By ending your separation and becoming one with all whom you despise and with all whom you hold dear, you become one with Source and peace abides within you.
