"Love everyone, serve everyone, remember God." - Neem Karoli Baba
.
Why can't it be so simple? Love, serve, and Remember. Perhaps this is the great work of our lives--because it IS WORK. It is a moment to moment practice of opening the apertures of perception even wider. It necessitates that we turn off autopilot, that we soften opinions, release judgment and expectation. It asks us to "lean in" and be an incarnation of absolute love. And...in this modern society, it's so damn hard! There are so many folks that rub us the wrong way, or have beliefs and opinions that may seem absurd. They may have done unthinkable things. How they HECK are we to serve these people--let alone LOVE them?!
.
When I'm really in flow--when I'm truly present and remembering, I do my best to step out of difference and duality. I slow down, become very quiet and remember that the same spark of grace that created me and my loved ones also created the one that seems most unlike me. So we keep practicing. Let's begin again today--right now! Will you try it? See God (whatever that means it looks like to YOU) In all! Good luck!
