Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking

Today I will be meditating on the subject of Faith … here are my words, from various spiritual sources, to meditate on:

~~~~~~~

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

– The Bible; Hebrews 11:1

~~~~~~~

“Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.”

– Rabindranath Tagore

~~~~~~~

“Faith must be enforced by reason … when faith becomes blind it dies.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.

My friend Eileen Caddy used to say; does the bird sing because dawn is breaking-or does the dawn break because the bird sings? I loved that saying of hers. x
