Everything Is Included

Think of Spirit as a giant circle,
and everyone and everything
is inside that circle.
Divine Love is given forth EQUALLY for all.
Jesus and Buddha and Ammachi
demonstrate this kind of Divinity.
They are Avatars of Love.

They are examples for the rest of us,
proving that it is actually possible
to love everyone without exception.
The rest of us stumble along,
Carrying the burdens of our judgments,
resentments, prejudices, comparisons,
and occasional orneriness.
Those of us who are not yet Realized
put all kinds of people
outside the circle of our love.
That’s OK. It’s very human.
Just know this:
No one is free (and certainly not happy)
until they are able to love Universally.
We sometimes fall short, but God never does.
