“Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness and you don’t judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.”
Be gentle as you breathe. Be gentle as you let go. Be easy with your heart. It has hardened over time, But remains soft at it’s center. Open your heart gently. Breathe easy. Do not fear the pain. Let it go. Let the pain go where it wants to go. Let your body breathe. Release your protective grip, And let your body live. Be gentle. You are healing. You are healing. Let it go gently. This will pass. You are eternal. You are loved. You are healthy. You are safe. Be gentle and breathe. Rest now. I love you. I love you. Rest now and feel loved.
“Humility is not self-deprecation or the disregard of God-given abilities. It is, rather, the recognition that we are God’s servants to everyone else who, like us, are beloved children of God. If all people have eternal value, we cannot treat anyone as having less value than that while they are here on the earth.”
“The whole of the vision of Jesus, which is the vision of peace, is about coming out from behind barriers and discovering people as they are. That is the promise that had been foretold through great prophets like Isaiah and Ezekiel: ‘I will remove the heart of stone in you and give you a heart of flesh.’ I will put my spirit within you.”
The spirit of God will be given, so that then we will see people, not through the glasses of our impoverished humanity and our wounds, but as God sees them. It’s a transformation. And to enter into the world of transformation we need to want it.”
