I’ve been doing alot of reading and searching for common links globally that bind us. There are the stars, the heavens, indisputibly hovering above us, that remind of us of how small the world is.
If we look through the lens of the space station, the globe looks like one large ball floating in space, with landscapes and waters, and a sense of “one.”
We cognitively know that on many levels is not true given the many cultures, economic differences and fortresses. However, if we dig a little deeper into our commonalities, we find two quite distinct similiarities: we are all human, people, and we all have some sort of belief that someone or thing, made this ball float.
Yes, for the scientists, you can have the theories of gravity and space, but I’m talking about something that is much more organic. Our organisms, are organic. Purely, organic.
We all must eat to survive, we need human contact, we have voice, we sense, we have thought, we have inside of us the incredible ability to survive when that seems most unlikely. We grow, we begin as a seed and transform. It is this incredible transformation that stands out to me as we all search for answers in our living, and our dying.
Nature, or God, as I call Him, has put before us an untenible duty to respond to this link. He calls us to look into our nature, to our beginnings, to our transformations and instead of finding differences, find these commonalities that have the potential to bring us back together as one world, one globe, one people, on a floating ball called Earth.
I named this piece God of all nations because in my searching, another common theme I found is that nearly every sector of the globe seems to believe in something…something large and unexplainable. A God that keeps the ball in the air, a God that sees all, a God that created us from organic form and continues to look after that pattern. In a sense, then, it stands to reason that we, in fact, are of ONE.
Today, in your thoughts, devotions, conversations, think about these commonalities. Delve into the God of all nations theory and investigate your own organic beginnings. Think about how you might link yourself to others as we are called to be “one. “
If you desire some interesting and thought provoking videos I suggest listening to Carolyn Myss and Nadia Boltz Weber. These two women have spent their lives in search of our goodness, our mercy, and how to expain our “oneness.”
God Bless you, and safe travels on our “ball.”
