Recognizing my neighbor rightly

A few years ago, at a public event, I was approached by a man whose appearance indicated values that were wrong and misguided, even repulsive, to me. In my daily spiritual prayerful work, I had been praying about the worth and value of each individual, so it was natural for me to correct my thought immediately and recognize the worth and value of this individual, based on the fact that man is actually the spiritual expression of God.

Focusing inward for a moment, I rapidly and with an open heart recognized, appreciated, and loved the spiritual qualities I knew this individual expressed as God’s image, and I affirmed that his true nature was entirely spiritual. A few moments later I acknowledged the man and spoke to him a bit about his day and found out he lived nearby. A few minutes later I realized he was gone.

We'd love to hear from you!
