Morning meditation - Giving all to all to make the world as one

When we sing a song do we want everyone to hear it and take joy? When we smile do we want all people to see it and return our sense of wellbing? When we tell a joke, is it all people we are hoping will laugh and take delight? When we share our ideas, knowledge, and skills do we expect all people to share our excitement and satisfactions?

We are here to give all to all. We are here to share our gifts with the world. It is in this sharing all we have with all the world that we receive tremendous gifts of well being, betterment, and benefit. It is when we get selective and discriminate that we get into trouble. We will only smile on these people but not on those. We will only joke with some but not others because we have made the joke at their expense. We will only sing with some, but not others because they are not our kind of people and wouldn't enjoy our kind of music. We won't share our ideas, knowledge, and skills with others because we fear they will "steal" them from us and we want credit or gain from what we consider ours.

In the spiritual life, we are aware that in order to grow the spiritual kingdom and to have peace and a better world we have to share all with all. God loves all God's creatures unconditionally. And we, who are part of God's mind, must extend God's creative powers to all the world. As John Lennon sang in his great song, Imagine, "You may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you will join us, and the world will be as one."
