Greetings Beloveds,

The world and all of us who live here on this sparkling blue planet seem to be in such separation. It makes me so sad when I read and hear how distant we are from one another...at least in our minds and the words we speak. It brings to mind a quote I love from the great poet Rumi, "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there."

Our greatest enemy is ourself...that part of us that doesn't have a clue, that part of us that isn't aware of the spirit within us...the same spirit that is within everyone everywhere. It is that part of us that has never been touched or harmed by anything in the outer world. It is the part of us that is universally connected one to another, no matter the nationality or belief system. That's the part of us that Rumi is speaking about. That is the place within us where we can find connection to everyone everywhere. It requires us to be conscious in our words and actions, to not speak or judge from FEAR. Unfortunately, FEAR is the great divider in the world right now. FEAR that we won't be safe or get ours, whatever ours is.

The only thing that can wipe out FEAR is LOVE. When we truly find the LOVE within us, and it is within everyone of us if we choose to look for it, we are no longer making unconscious decisions based on FEAR.

Our challenge in this lifetime is to discover our true and essential nature as divine LOVE. It plays no favorites; it just is. Until we wake up, we are destined to be run by our unconscious FEAR.

In peace and love always,

Rev. Karen
