April 25 - Truth

Ephesians: So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbors, for we are members of one another.


Several years ago, an Our Father meditation took root in my soul. Centered around the chakras (energy centers) in our bodies, the meditation ties the Sacraments to the chakras, and The Our Father prayer fits perfectly. There are several intentions and images that came to me as well. The head or face chakra ties together with the Sacrament of marriage. The intentions that came to me for that chakra are truth, non-judgment, divine justice, awareness, and mindfulness.


The image of the left and right sides of the brain being knit together by the word truth, God's truth, is what came to me. Not just the left and right sides of the brain, but the yin and yang, democrat and republican, two people coming together in marriage, all seeming opposites being united in God's Truth.


I have a difficult neighbor, with two extremely barky, and mean-looking dogs. When I'm around, my dogs don't bark as much as the other dogs, but if left unattended, both sets of dogs bark intensely and run the fence line to the point where nothing can grow underfoot because all growth has been removed by racing paws. Of course, they may say the same about my dogs who can't resist barking at the husband when he goes to work.


I've decided to put in a somewhat solid fence hoping that will cut down on the barking, the fence racing, and offer some privacy for both parties.


Today's verse spoke to me and my situation with my neighbor. Seemingly opposite people being knit together with God's Truth. We are told that we must love our neighbor as ourselves, therefore, I must love my particular neighbor and their dogs as I love myself and my dogs. In this case, God's Truth is a solid fence that, God willing, will cut down on the noise.


May God's Truth guide us this day. May we not judge others (especially our neighbors), and be filled with awareness and mindfulness of our neighbors, our world, and ourselves.
