Everyone Wins

There simply aren’t any losers in Divine Mind.
Every beloved child of God is a winner.
Everyone has 10,000 chances to try again,
to do things over, to make it better,
to heal, to bless, to correct, to love,
to forgive, to be forgiven,
to make amends, to learn and to grow.
We are God-seeds becoming God-Realized beings.
Failure is impossible.
No matter how long it takes
(or how many lifetimes)
we will attain the goal.
However steep the climb,
and no matter how deep the setbacks,
from the drunk in the gutter,
to the most vicious criminal,
to the most innocent of victims,
we are all going to wind up at the same destination.
Each in our own way is going to attain
the mind that was in the Christ,
the equanimity and wisdom of the Buddhahood,
and the Compassion of the Holy Mother.
Take heart – and don’t give up.
