Family of Human Beings
When I was 16 years old in 1971, I had an answer to the first and ‘cheekiest’ prayer I ever prayed. The prayer was ‘God, if you exist, create the miracle of getting me a scholarship to international high school (6th Form, A Levels, International Baccalaureate level) in South Wales, U.K.’ I had originally been told that my parents were ‘too rich’ for me to qualify for a scholarship, though they had four children they had to educate and send to university. After being accepted in April of that year, there was a postal strike, and I prayed the same prayer for another month until May 1st because there had been no word on the scholarship. I found out that my prayer was answered then, when against all known odds I got the full tuition scholarship. This led directly to becoming a believer in a Higher Power immediately afterwards.
Because the international school (United World College of the Atlantic) had students from over 50 countries, including all inhabited continents and even some from countries ruled by communist governments (in 1971 during the so-called Cold War, this was a rare privilege), I came to see that whatever country we are from, we are all human beings. In fact, because we were put in common circumstances in a new place, all of us formed lasting bonds in spite of having different religions, ethnicities, currencies, and languages.
Though I was narrowly sectarian in my own religious views at the time, even this fact didn’t keep me from becoming friends with many of other faiths. Now, 45 years later, I still long for communication and communion with people from all over the world, and am finding it by meeting people on Facebook.
I am amazed that we are able to speak to each other so openly about ‘waking up,’ ‘enlightenment,’ and the spiritual journey. I’m also deeply delighted to again feel part of the Family of Human Beings. Writing these posts and meeting people from all over the world on Facebook has made life richer by far, in a few short weeks.
Today’s little bit of writing is just to say ‘thank you’ for one more thing I’m grateful for: the family of all human beings that are now speaking together about spiritual Truth. My experience is that we are each, individually, The Absolute Itself in form. My hope is that these writings help all readers to uncover this for themselves. May we continue our open dialog until all realize Who is the Origin and Who is continuing to come into a multitude of forms as The Family of Human Beings.
May all Human Beings who read this awaken in this lifetime: it is possible (and wonderful)!
