I have mentioned in earlier posts that there is one thing that I will take to my grave as the ” absolute truth ” and that is … we are all connected… every living creature, every living being is an unique ( one and only) part of Creation.
Scottish theologian and philosopher John Duns SCOTUS called each soul an ” unique” ” thisness ” ( haecceity) and it was placed singularly in each human soul-never duplicated! Our essence, our exact ” thisness” will never appear in any other creation.
Modern-day Fr. Richard Rohr stands by his solid belief… ” Nothing Stands Alone.” We all begin with a divine DNA, a blue print tucked away in the hidden recesses of our heart and soul. ( Romans 5:5: It is the Holy Spirit poured into your heart, and it has been given to you.”)
Our sense of disconnection is only an illusion. Nothing human can stop the flow of divine love; we cannot undo the eternal pattern … even by our worst sin.
As I envisioned the Holy Spirit pouring love into my heart continuously the lyrics to Dianne Ross and the Supremes ( Stop! In the Name of Love) flicked through my mind.
Stop! In the name of love Before you break my heart… Think it over, think it over.”
Isn’t it so liberating to know, unlike fickle human love among ourselves, God’s love steadfastly endures forever? God will never break our hearts… but can the same be said about our reciprocal love!
So until tomorrow…” God, Lord of all creation, lover of life and of everything, Please help us to love in our very small way… What You love infinitely and everywhere.
We thank You that we can offer just this one prayer… And that will be more than enough, Because in reality every thing and everyone is connected, And nothing stands alone.” Rohr
Today is my favorite day! Winnie the Pooh
Yesterday Eloise had her princess party and she decided to be a ” shy” princess. Too funny-a Frozen theme-so maybe she was just cold. 🤣😘
Eva Cate and Winnie coordinated with their black and white theme!
