Sometimes . . .
Sometimes it is imperative to ground spirituality in the correction of needs by looking at the needs squarely and addressing them, instead of rising above them!
Sometimes it is necessary to abandon the overcoming of needs and simply engage in fulfilling them!
Sometimes Love is not an idea, but a relevant act — saying “thank you,” smiling in acknowledgment, sharing food, giving a hug, giving drink to the thirsty or sheltering someone who is homeless.
Sometimes Love is inviting or welcoming someone across a border that never should have been used as a barrier to Brotherhood!
Sometimes “needs met” are not the result of “clear, correct thinking” wordlessly penetrating the mental ethers of a suffering brother from a safe and uninvolved distance, but rather doing for him — up close and personal — what he cannot at the moment do for himself!
Sometimes prayer is humility — the humility it takes to be honest, genuine, unpretentious, grounded in Love — allowing one to behave in a manner which demonstrates compassion, together with an understanding of what redemption is and how difficult it sometimes is to receive it!
Sometimes Love is not teaching someone how to fish, but simply giving him one!
Sometimes divinity is humanity expressed . . . or, maybe it’s all the time!
It is the 11th of May, and there is approximately $4,600 still due by the 20th. The electricity may be interrupted within the next 48 hours, and the property taxes in the amount of $7,419 need to be paid before June 1st, as well, when the penalty for late payment increases substantially. Things appear to be at a standstill.
Your support is once again invited, and I thank everyone whose support has already been received.
