The Politics of Walls

The_Great_Wall_of_China_at_Jinshanling-edit

In this heated, oftentimes hate and anger filled, world we live in … we must know that WE are still the authors of our own destinies. Nobody else truly has the power to make us angry or afraid … we allow it, we do it to ourselves with the contextual lens we look through each and every day.

So today I would like to meditate on the freedom of not allowing anyone to build or impose walls or boundaries around us. We are free … free to live and love and author the reality we want to live in!

My words to meditate upon:

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

– Maya Angelou

“Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”

– JRR Tolkien

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”

– Joseph Campbell

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.
