WALLS AND FENCES
We build walls and fences to separate and protect us from other human beings. As if it’s not enough to do this physically, we tend to make mental constructs that separate those we love from those we don’t love so well; those we fear or those we judge to be “other” in any way that jars with our own particular beliefs.
Exploring this concept more deeply, the poet Robert Frost writes, “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.” He asks of himself, as he and his neighbor repair a wall between their properties: “What was I walling in or walling out?”
We could well consider this ourselves, if we find fences or walls in our own thinking and around our hearts.
Certainly walls and fences inhibit the flow of communication between human beings, the growth of interdependence, of concern and understanding for others, the flow of love. They inhibit the goal we have as spiritual beings of encompassing through relationships the certain knowledge that we are One with all that is. It is that ancient knowledge -- seated deeply within our souls -- that is Frost’s “Something … that doesn’t love a wall.”
How clear the wide arch of the blue sky overhead, how pure the smile on a stranger’s face, how sweet the sound of that unknown voice singing in the twilight, when fences and walls are demolished for all time!
If you would like to experience Silent Meditation at Unity in Lynnwood consider joining us every Sunday at 8:30AM and 10:30AM before each Sunday Service.
