Favoring Our Divine Side
Who among us has never missed the mark, made a mistake, or done wrong? The New Testament says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God?” But I think another quote says it better, “To err is human, to forgive divine.” It is in the act not of judgement but of forgiveness that we show our divine side.
How often have you heard others or yourself say, “I will never forgive him or her for that.” If that is true then we or they are opting to deny our divine nature in favor of our lesser human side. To use the phrase “I’m only human” is to deny that we are children of the Universe and that we are meant to rise above our petty fears and to soar.
If we allow our lesser nature to rule us, we prove that Yoda’s warning to young Skywalker about fear leading to hate and suffering is really a warning to us all that, “They who fear are not made perfect in love.”
May we all exercise our demons and our love muscle, our heart of hearts, and remind ourselves that our greatest gift is the ability to love and to overlook the faults of others, even our own. This is the greatest (great test) love of all. In the end, no matter how long the dark night the sun always rises and the divine side always win.
Your friend and fellow traveler,
The Greatest Love Of All
