12 Reflections on Paintings for Our Common Home – Painting #2 “Boundaries Wither Away”, and Reflection #2 “Boundaries Wither Away”.


Boundaries Wither Away

All created beings belong to our common Home, evolved out of God’s infinite love.

Our common home has no boundaries. It is our home, common to all creation.

We continue to evolve, discover, explore and understand our wonderful universe.

God entrusted us with the curiosity, intelligence and responsibility to discover and sustain and nature our common home with the same love with which God created us.

With greater love in our hearts we shall experience the inclusivity of all creation.

The creator urges us to replace all boundaries in the universe with universal love.
