A human being is part of the whole, called by us “universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest – a kind of delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. ~ Albert Einstein, in Creating a World That Works for All, Sharif Abdullah
As we awaken from this “dream” of separation from our Source and from one another, we begin to understand that every sentient being, created in the image and likeness of God, is imbued with divine qualities, and connected in Oneness with all. We do live in the Heart and Mind of God, becoming more and more aware of this precious Unity with all Life. It is this open-hearted experience of true belonging that allows us to recover from the restrictive beliefs in separation and lifts the world consciousness to a higher vibration of Truth.
Remembering that the Divine Life that animates us is the same that motivates everyone and celebrates Itself within us all, it becomes possible to heal hurts, release judgment, and enter more deeply into mutual respect and appreciation. God is alive within each and every one of us, nurturing, guiding, and sustaining us as we turn to this Holy Presence within. This last Sunday in February, I’ll be speaking about, “It’s in Every One of Us,” and my intention is that we open more completely to the experience of the Global Heart, as we do our part to bring it to fruition in our world.
As we are now completely virtual, we invite you to join us each Sunday at 10:30 A.M. EST, live streaming from the Inspiration Café, our temporary office at 360 N. Valley Rd., Paoli, PA 19301. As you go to our website, www.cslphilly.org you will find a welcoming musical invitation, preparing for our morning Celebration. Please enjoy the many aspects of this precious hour we share together: prayer, music, and uplifting messages, then consider informing your friends about the Celebrations archived on the website and open for viewing at any time.
