God is not territorial. God is love.
God does not need us to believe in anything but love.
For love is all we need to unite us in common goals
of peace, kindness and compassion.
Love requires us to look beyond ourselves.
It asks us to feed the hungry and care for the sick.
Questions of belief or non-belief miss the point
of all that is.
We are not here to exclude others
but to unite ourselves with all others.
That is our purpose.
There is no greater priority for mankind.
Structures give authority
and authority brings power over others.
Religious structures too can divide us
despite all the good words.
We can walk through the doors of exclusion
and re-write the rules that hinder
the fulfilment of the true purpose,
potential and happiness of all.
Inclusion can grow quietly and
gently within each of us,
for this is our personal journey
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE
1. What exclusive structures do we belong to or support?
2. Who are we not linking up with or reaching out to, that we should?
