Love The Golden Rule, By Janet J. Anderson
Love your neighbor as yourself.
This is the path
The soul chooses,
To wake up believing we are loved.
And that nothing
Can separate us from our God.
That we have a choice after all,
To co-create peace and harmony.
Ours must be the senses of spirituality.
We must see, hear, taste, touch, breathe
The beauty manifest
In every life and culture.
And ours must be the challenge,
To be the message
Of love in this world.
Can we be enough
To negate violence and abuse?
To stand against injustice?
Make the difference
That will allow for God’s presence,
Exemplify joy for others to see
As they go.
Give themselves up to truth’s freedom?
We must shine without shame
As we delight in change,
Compassionate and forgiving,
Leading others to the kingdom
Quietly cultivating healing,
Dipping our fingers in the pools of humankind,
As the great anointer did,
To touch a heart,
Refresh a spirit. submitted by Sally Hunter
