Capsule for the Day
The clouds and the winds announce the season. The shops and the traffic tell the story. Christmas is around the corner the church bells ring. We are all longing for the Birth that reveals our own birth. Divinity becomes humanity to affirm humanity and raise it to the Divine life, the Life of God.
While we run away from our humanity God embraces it. "It isn't evil", the manger narrates. See, I am human. I am God. I cannot create what is evil. All My creation is good. Be perfect in your humanity as I am perfect in My Divinity. If I who am perfect in Divinity become human why wouldn't you?
It is in becoming fully human that you find Me. For you ask "where are You, God". I am in humanity. Seek me in human faces, in real people. I am in the suffering, the joy, the real emotions and the real human story and life. I am truly human. Be truly human too. Love your humanity. Love Me.
