This quote or versions of it are commonly the attributed to Saint Francis many believe it to be a misquote. Regardless of who said it I believe it holds much spiritual knowledge. Many people and spiritual teachers talk all day long but none of that talk translate to their daily life and that’s a shame. To me the greatest spiritual teachers lead by example. They don’t tell people the their way is the way but a way. They live the path they choose through experience and many of them never speak about it. Their way is shown through their actions. Spirituality should never be hey do as I say but more a do as I live or better yet this is how I live you can see how it works for me if you want more info I can try to explain it.
So by your actions what do you preach on a daily basis? Is it something that would benefit the world? Do you receive benifits from it? Would you teach it to your kids, your family?

“If God is for us, who can be against us?”, I hear this line quoted a lot also misquoted a lot and usually as a battle cry and I think completely missing the point of it. I admit it when I was younger and much less spiritual I felt the same way about it I think a lot of people do. That if God is on our side, and I’m not saying a specific God though this is from the bible, then none of the people who are against us have a chance. Luckily I got past that stage in my life and that way of thinking. I know think the whole point of the quote is that nobody is against us. If God is in fact for us I would tend to think that we are for God as well or rather we have him/her/it in our hearts. If that is the case then I think we would tend to realize that all things are God as well as all people. If I truly have God in my heart I have no enemies but brothers and sisters, disagreements yes misunderstandings, you bet but these people are not my enemies but a reflection of God. Plus I really don’t think God is against anyone, I believe and prefect divine love and enough to go around. I don’t think God hates anyone if he/she/it did what kind of God would that be?
What do you think? Am I completely of my rocker on this one?
