FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

WORLD

“All wars are civil wars, because all persons are brothers and sisters. . . . Each one owes infinitely more to the human race than to the particular country in which one was born.”

~ Francois Fenelon ~

The disease of addiction kept me separate, isolated, and alone. I was so busy seeing how I was different from other people that I missed the similarities. I missed the oneness of creation by always placing myself above it, below it, or outside it; and I was the loser.

Even my religion kept me separate. By being Christian, I was not a Jew, Muslim, or Hindu. As such, I failed to see the similarities of these major philosophies. I also failed to recognize what all religious people have in common: the inclusiveness of Love, Truth, and Forgiveness.

God is found in the difference and sameness of all people.

Dear God, I am discovering that differences, when understood, become similarities.
