Borders

Written by Matt Carriker

Spiritual growth always happens most when we cross borders,

in whatever form those borders take.

God did not create borders.

Humans did.

God created difference; humans have created division.

God’s call is for us to live in unity amidst diversity;

Oneness though we are not the same.

Borders do not exist for God.

When we cross borders, we live into the Kingdom of God;

the way of Love;

the path of Light.

That way is a path of ever-expansive love;

of ever-widening compassion that casts out fears, prejudices, and judgments.

This is a path that must be chosen often, lest we forget;

a path of regular awakenings, lest we fall back asleep.
