'Collective reconciliation only takes place when we make the same space in honour of the humanity of others.True reconciliation does not require a debt to be paid. Unconditional love puts no such conditions on anything.That’s what makes it unconditional. Reconciliation requires this type of love, acceptance and forgiveness. It’s a feeling. Not a ledger in the physical experience.'
'We are not, as we have led ourselves to believe, and contemporary personal development and spirituality teachers have taught us, the centre of the universe or powerful beyond anything we could ever imagine.At least this is not individually the case.We are a small part of what is a very beautiful, though fractured and flawed humanity.It is our ability to love and to extend love to any being or situation that is powerful and unlimited.'
Does our world yearn to be one of genuine equality? Or does it prefer to distribute equality and other similar traits selectively? 'On the surface, this piece is about Jack de Belin. But at its heart it is a commentary on humanity and a contemporary society that jumps at any opportunity to destroy a popular or easy-to-destroy target. What is destroyed, of course, is someone’s humanity.'
Throughout many years of typing the word God into my phone I often made the error of typing an ‘H’ instead of a ‘G’. These letters sit close to one another on the keypad, and usually I was writing down the messages I was given in the middle of the night with one eye open and barely able to see. So, what I often wrote was, ‘Hod this’ or ‘Hod that’. This went on for quite a few years, without me ever really giving it another thought. But then the word Hod started to carry a bit of weight. I began to think there was a little more to my mistakes than I originally thought. And I came to the conclusion, already knowing that God had a great sense of humour, that he wasn’t as caught up in the word God for a name as we were. So Hod, or Hoddy when I was feeling playful, became my new nickname for God. Read on for more on Hod!
