It all comes back to you in the end. And then what you are, who you are, is what you create in the world. ~Love~

As you rise to higher and higher levels of consciousness, you bring others along with you. Your journey is not for you alone. The paradox is that you work on it as if it were solely your journey, but your journey impacts the whole. It impacts all of those around you in concentric circles outward from those closest to you to all of creation. When you do the deep work on yourself, know that what you do for you, you do for others. It can be no other way in a unified world. Though we may appear separate from each other, separate from nature, from a tree, from an animal, know that we are all connected through the essence of life—through God, if you want to call it God. The essence of God is in all things equally, even though you may not see that.

Practice seeing God in everyone and in everything as you go through your day. It may be easy to see God in those you love, but you’re being asked to see God in your friends, neighbors, strangers who are crossing the street in front of your car and passing you in the aisles of the supermarket, people you’re reading about in the newspaper. Loved or reviled, you’re being asked to see God in them. You will never be able to do this until you recognize the God in you.

It all comes back to you in the end. And then what you are, who you are, is what you create in the world. It’s not so much what you do as how you do it. If you are feeding the hungry while at the same time judging them for not being able to feed themselves, you’re only scratching the surface. Let go of all your judgments and all your need to condemn.

Judgment and condemnation will only serve to cast shadows on the bright light of divinity that is shining from you. If you want that light to shine unimpeded—to light the way for yourself and others—then you must let go of self-righteousness, judgment, and condemnation. You do that by loving every aspect of yourself, and then you’ll be able to love every aspect of others and the entire world as it is, as it will be, as it is becoming.

Go in peace, and with the knowledge and the understanding that you are loved no more and no less than anyone or anything else in all of creation. You are loved unconditionally and without end, and so it is that you should love others. ~Love~
