When We Are One

I like the clarity of what Thomas Merton says about the human.  The oneness being a part of the all.  To come to that place of knowing this truth, for me, is the quest.  It is in finding this we begin to understand how everything that we do impacts everything that is in this Universe.

I had to smile the other day.  I do not like spiders or bugs and I never thought twice about swatting them (nice way of saying ‘killing’).  Now I try and “shush” them away, telling them to go home.

It is these little, once insignificant things, that I see which tell me of the subtle changes in my makeup.  I am grateful.
