Hole to whole…

Most reading this rant reside in these United States of America. Our name says a lot about our aim, doesn’t it. We aim to be a place where all are welcome and it’s a really big opus, isn’t it? In fact, it’s impossible as is our motto – “e pluribus unum,” (out of many, one). We are far from united and we’ve come a long way, haven’t we? What is my biggest struggle, you ask? Same as yours. Our biggest struggle, regardless where we’re from, what we’ve got, what we’ve done, or haven’t for that matter, is the struggle within – the struggle to go from hole to whole. The struggle to unite ourselves…

Hole to whole.

All of us humans are attempting to go from humans filled with holes to humans that are whole. One dub of a difference, huh. Work on your worldview, friend, your dub if you will. Accept others, especially those with different dubs. This is e pluribus unum in action. Our country, like each of us is always a wip – a work in process. Hole to whole. One “w” of a difference. What do you believe makes you whole, friend? What are you doing to fill your hole? Or, are you kicking the can down the road, friend and choosing some kinda distraction of the day? Are you awake or sleepwalking through life?

Hole to whole, one “w” of a difference.

Slow down and sit with this one for awhile, friend. I believe none of us is whole. There are no whole human beings, only human beings receiving wholeness from a loving God. And, we’re all leaking vessels in need of constant filling, at least I know I am. What, friend, fills you these days? Do you know who you are? Do you know why you’re here and where you’re going? Do you know what you believe about the big questions of life? Have you taken the time to work on your worldview – the deepest held beliefs through which you make sense of life? The aim is deep oneness to unite us with each other. Distinct and deeply connected is BTL’s version of “out of many one.” Hole to whole. God, help me accept your living waters and work on my cracks instead of fixating on the holes of another. God, help me accept other dub’s and unite us.

Live hard. Love harder…

    p.s. My W is a little more nuanced – it’s my “Word-view”.
