“There is unlimited potential in true humility”
Richard and Mary Alice Jafolla
The Quest Ch. 41
This statement is opposite of how we are taught to live as human beings.
But because we are spiritual beings having human experiences, when we allow ourselves to align with the power of God in the knowing that “There is only One Presence and One Power in the universe” and I am not it, we align with this Presence and Power and limitless good can flow.
We are letting go of our thoughts and our stories of how important or special we are. We are saying, ‘It is God as good which works through and as me, in ways far greater than I could ever accomplish on my own.’ How much relief there is in living this way.
“Whoever exalts himself will be humbled and however humbles himself will be exalted.” Mt. 23:12
He also said,
“Why do you call me good? … No one is good except God alone.” Mk. 10:18
Let us know that it is God as peace, expressing as and through us, which blesses our world. As we continue to hold prayers of peace for Syria, let us know that God as peace is right now available to express through all the people, to bring forth the good for all we seek.
