#LoveYourNeighbor #Charlottesville

“Since goodwill resides in the inner self, where benevolence is felt, and then extends into the outer self, where good actions occur, it follows that people’s inner selves are what we should love; and we should love their outer selves on the basis of their inner selves. Therefore we are to love people according to the type of goodness they have inside. It is the goodness itself, then, that is actually our neighbor.” True Christianity, para. 410  ~http://www.swedenborg.com/love-my-neighbor-do-i-have-to/

#ThursdayThoughts; Practice #Patience

long-lines

long lines at the Big Tiny Bash

no-one can find a deep sense of patience in their own strength alone…we can endure the temporary trials of life with a more patient attitude when we have a deep trust in a higher providence: this is can be thought of as a reliance on a universal spiritual force that has the power and foresight to provide what we need; the priority of this divine providence is said to be to satisfy not so much our immediate needs which often are temporary ones but rather those spiritual needs that we will continue to have in the long term – needs for example for belonging, loving relationship, and meaningful role.”

The quote from poet John Donne comes to mind, “No man is an island.”
