"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" Ralph Waldo Emerson

I notice,  as I observe my thoughts, that not only am I both Christian and Hindu (and others), but also Liberal and Conservative.  (And mostly Independent).

By this, do I mean that I cannot come to a conclusion, or take a strong stand on my beliefs?  Not at all!  It means simply that I find myself capable of seeing and understanding both sides of an issue, be it political, theological or relational.

Though I may feel strongly that one view best serves the Higher Purpose, it doesn't separate me in my mind and heart from those espousing the opposite.  I may react at first and have to wrestle with that lower mind, but soon, as I sincerely will it so, Spirit, or the Higher Mind, takes the field, and I am able to see the integrity and innocence within those holding what I deem a mistaken conclusion.

What is more, my conclusion may prove to be the mistaken one.  If convinced, I will reverse my stand.

From the depths of my soul, I am reminded:   my "enemy" is just as much God's Beloved Child as I am.   With this,  Divine Love floods my Soul and, as I am enfolded once again in that One Love, I am enabled to hold all humankind in that Oneness, thus adding my spark of God to the millions of others who place Peace On Earth as more important than being "right".

Namaste' (I salute the God within you) (or the Christ, the Spirit, the Holiness, the Light or whatever designation is deeply true for you).

We are truly One with the One.  What joy!


  1. I love this! My feelings exactly...I'm finding that when I embrace things that I would not necessarily choose- I am empowered with self love- it is a wonderful dynamic- allowing me to experience more and more.
    "Isn't that interesting." isn't just a phrase- it becomes a statement of truth.
    I find life to be so fascinating...truly.

  2. Thank you, Gail. Another post coming soon. Namaste'
