“When God dwells in all living beings, then why do you hate others?
Why do you try to dominate each other? Is this not sheer ignorance?
Wake up and rest in peace.”
It could be said that life is one and sacred. The same life empowers all and everything. Without the life that empowers us… nothing is possible. To be holistically wakeful is to honor the oneness and sacredness of life as ultimate value.
It is also wise to remember that what you honor… honors you. If you honor the oneness and sacredness of life… your experience is holistic. You are blissful in the awareness of the oneness of life. Has it not been said that what you give is what you get… or as you sow… so shall you reap?
It was Confucius who said… do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It is known as the Golden Rule. If you honor the life that we all share as ultimate value and respect it in everyone you meet… you are actualizing the Golden Rule as truthful holistic experience.
This week… let us bring our focus to life as ultimate value. Let us increase our wakefulness of the life we all share without which nothing is possible. Let us honor the sacredness and oneness of life in ourselves and in everyone and everything. And let us be aware that what we honor… honors us.
