Parts of the One Life

“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen to what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truth and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent.

In other words, your life is not about you. Your are about a larger thing called Life. You are not your own. You are an instance of a universal and eternal pattern. Life is living itself in you. The myriad forms of life in the universe are merely parts of the One Life that many of us call God.”   Parker Palmer

If we are an “instance of a universal and eternal pattern” I say we should make our “instance” a memorable one. Let’s let the other “parts of the One Life” know we are here and we are force for good to be reckoned with! It seems to me we have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
