True Freedom

Humanity tends to view greatness
in relation to one’s ability to dominate.
Jesus offers a different perspective.
For Him, greatness lies in the ability
to give oneself away.

The wonder of the universe
and the totality of our humanity
is within ourselves.
It is a gift of life
which we must give away
in order to possess it.

To be in communion
with God and each other
we must liberate ourselves
from ourselves
from our hungry egos
in order to be free enough
to give ourselves
to the Other
and each other.

    And in giving ourselves away and emptying ourselves in the service of others we receive something else in return — something beautiful that the World cannot give: Grace and Peace within our souls. How wealthy we then become.
