Beyond Right and Wrong

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. ~ Rumi ~
I attune to the Oneness which permeates and penetrates my very being. It is the Life-force itself, and every single living creature on the planet has this Presence at the center and the circumference of their being. Knowing this unalterable Truth allows me to see others in a different light, in a place where I can see beyond my own expectations and judgments. I can meet them in that field of consciousness with an open heart and mind. I can set aside hatred, even in the face of horrific deeds, and consider instead that the perpetrator is calling for Love. Today, I choose once again to always come from that place of Love, which provides me with an unshakeable sense of inner Peace. Today, I choose to take the spiritual path to the field of Love in consciousness which sets me free from concepts of right and wrong. My heart rejoices in this truth revealed, and I simply state, thank you, thank you, thank you, dear Spirit. And so it is.
