Our opportunity to grow is not removed from our grasp, but we ourselves have pushed it like a jar on a shelf out of reach, and at times, further and further out of reach. Each on their own, in their own quiet corners of the world, can give, love, share, and promote goodness, for to refuse to do so, is to become a people of belligerent behavior.
We are not belligerent by nature, but easily taunted to become those who stand up. Can we stand up to ourselves, look ourselves in the eyes and confess to our ignorance, not knowing, fully, or completely, the love of God? We shield ourselves in sacred ground, sacred words, and scriptures, but do we know the heart of our Mother God? She has traversed the years, and She has sought peace and love in Her children’s lives. We must place ourselves on the path to receive Her love and Her education.
