I celebrate my unity with all life.
In childhood, my notion of family might have stretched no further than my relatives. At some point, I may have widened my concept of family to include friends and members of my spiritual community. I might also consider my neighbors and coworkers to be family, as well as any beloved pets or animals. As I mature in my understanding of All That Is, I see that I am one with all of life. I celebrate my unity with all living beings. All people have the spirit of God within them. If I have been excluding anyone from my circle of respect, honor, and care, I now open my heart to Spirit within and embrace them as family.
So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.—Romans 12:5
