This week, Dr. Patrick introduces Martin Luther King's idea of the Beloved Community, and what that means.
"Jesus had finished the greatest experiment with life that any man ever made. There were no longer any doubts or questions, no longer any 'ifs', 'ands', or 'buts'. He implied, 'This is the way it is, now go and prove it.' We are on an adventure of self-discovery through faith. The Infinite Intelligence can only respond to what we give It. And we are learning the greatest lesson in life, that man and woman do not live by bread alone, but by a Subtle Power which flows through everything, a Divine Presence which encompasses everything." -- Dr. Ernest Holmes.
Our goal is to create a beloved community, and this will require a qualitative change in our souls and a quantitative change in our lives. Our opportunity is to clear away the obstructions that keep us from living in unity.
The first step in the quantitative change is self-acceptance. It is knowing that we are enough, that we are loved beyond measure.
