loving the homelessBeing Love in a World that Needs You

It’s amazing to me how little ‘news’ is published in major newspapers, on broadcast networks, and in general about the ordinary acts of kindness that people do in the world.  It would be easy to assume that humans are only capable of hostility, hatred, greed, lust and conflict by reading, listening or watching the news.  It would be difficult to see love in its many forms.

Yet, if we look around, we find lots of love, kindness and compassion in every day interactions among people.  It’s my experience that this is where spiritual transformation finally brings me: being an ordinary person, having ordinary interactions with other people, and bringing: kindness, grace, love, peace, healing and Truth into as many of those interactions as possible.

It would be wise for me to consider that Grace produces Awakening as the Mystery, not just for my own benefit but, for the opportunity to be of service to Mystery.  Awakening as this ‘little mystery’ makes it possible to be consciously serving the Big Mystery in each small interaction (although quite imperfectly).  In other words, it’s fine to enjoy being awake but, the love that is manifesting for the Rest of the Mystery that I am part of, is to be shared with ‘The Rest of It.’ as I call the Divine that is seemingly ‘outside of’ this bodymind.  I have no idea what love will produce in any of its forms but, its result is not my business.  Opening the love that arises in this heart for the Rest of the Mystery is my business.  Even the smallest action, done in love, may have an impact beyond imagining.
