Each of us has an instinctive calling to be more than we are now… to stretch…to grow…to bend toward the infinite the way a flower bends toward sunlight.
Every cell in the body is coded to contribute its own uniqueness to the healthy functioning of the organ it belongs to. It has a natural tendency to collaborate with other cells in a venture way greater than its own individual life.
And so it is with human beings. We too are here to contribute to a great creative effort, each of us becoming whom we are capable of being, then collaborating with others in supporting something larger than ourselves. Each of us has a unique part to play, and a natural guidance system that reveals not only what our part is but also how to accomplish it.
No one’s function is any more or less important, or special, than anyone else’s. We are all here, like cells in the body, to do what is needed to support the whole. And who among us isn’t feeling today the call of greatness – not a personal greatness, but the greatness of the times in which we live – that we ourselves might participate in the healing of the world? We are the individual immune cells in the body of human civilization. Where there is sickness, we are called to be healers. And we heal by being healed ourselves.
