“Our goal is to create a beloved community, and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
There is but one Loving Source from which all life comes. This Sacred Essence expresses as joy, abundance, love, peace, compassion, and on and on…all the qualities of the Divine. And as each one of us is an expression of the Divine, we too are joy, abundance, love, peace, compassion, and on and on…Whatever we choose to align with in the Divine becomes the expression that is us.
And, as we share this spiritual journey that we call life, we are the Beloved Community. I welcome the Beloved community into my heart, to be open to how I change and grow and learn and fail as I awaken to my own magnificence and yours. We strive to see the Divine in each other, all those qualities expressing in the human form in all its messy goodness. We strive to have compassion when one of us falls short and then we help each other back up. We are united when life seems good and when life seems rough. The Beloved Community is here and now, between us, supported by the Divine.
I give thanks for this beloved community and how we support each other. I appreciate the ability we have to choose to evolve consciously and how deeply we can love each other along the way…in all our messy goodness.
Knowing that our Beloved Community is truly blessed, I release this prayer into the Law knowing it is all manifesting in Divine Right Order now. And so it is.
