FROM JEAN VANIER

Short inspirational passages delivered to your email box each day that will help give balance, perspective and spiritual depth to your day. Drawn largely from Vanier's best selling books, including Becoming Human, Finding Peace, Community and Growth and Made for Happiness.

Belonging

The longer we journey on the road to inner healing and wholeness, the more the sense of belonging grows and deepens. The sense is not just one of belonging to others and to a community. It is a sense of belonging to the universe, to the earth, to the air, to the water, to everything that lives, to all humanity. If the community gives a sense of belonging, it also helps us to accept our aloneness in a personal meeting with God. Through this, the community is open to the universe and to humankind.

Beside being the founder of L'Arche, Jean Vanier is a 21st century writer and social visionary and recipient of many humanitarian awards including the Companion of the Order of Canada. MacLean's Magazine calls him "a Canadian who inspires the world." In a number of best-selling books, Jean Vanier reflects profoundly on what it is to be fully human in our world today.
