Reader comment on Megan McKenna's passage ...

The Messiah Is One Of Us

I like the story that Megan McKenna tells.  It's what happens.  Gandhi said, "If you don't see God in the next person you meet, it's a waste of time to look further."  If we see God in each other, and realize that God is infinite possibility and love, how could we not feel hope and kindness?  There were times,especially when I was younger, that a teacher or elder saw profound possibility in me and told me so, profoundly raising my self-esteem and self-confidence.  Those statements still remain with me and are part of my undergirding.  Knowing and reminding myself that God incarnates into each of us helps me see the profound and divine in everyone.

 The story is beautiful, inspiring. However, I opt to see such godliness or goodness only in some select people. Its a struggle to visualise God in people with whom we don't get along or have issues of understanding. Immediately the mind switches to "I" and "They:. Here I like this quote of Gandhi because its an everyday challenge. Perhaps this is afterall the real struggle of human life ... to make an effort and find God in others so we can really see God in oneself too !
