‘may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’

A commentary

February 3rd 2018
When Jesus said in the Prayer ‘Our Father’, ‘May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’, he meant that we should create a connection, a circulation of energies between heaven and earth, until the harmony, order and beauty up above are firmly established on our earth, that is, within ourselves first. When Jesus talked about ‘the earth’, he did not mean the earth outside of humans; he meant that we are also this earth, and that we should establish the kingdom of God within us first. Anyone who tries to impose the kingdom of God in the world would have to admit it is useless; they would instantly fail because of the anarchic and violent side of human beings. Divine order cannot be imposed from the outside. Only once the kingdom of God is established within us, will it also come about in the world. Therefore, it is our responsibility to work and establish within ourselves the order and harmony from above.
