At a core level we all need to belong, to be part of, to be seen and known, valued and loved. This creates a fertile space for our spirit to thrive, come forward and shine its Light.
Being in spiritual community nurtures our spirit and enables us to grow and flourish and consequently bring a better self into the world. Seeing ourselves and others as part of the larger community of humanity enables us to reach beyond our differences, to reach out and make the world a better place. Spiritual community supports both.
I wholly belong in my spiritual community.
In spiritual community seeds are nurtured,
I grow deep spiritual roots and I spread my branches.
Knowing that I belong to the one family of humanity,
I open my heart and extend my spirit to one and all.
And so it is.
