Metaphysical meaning of neighbor (mbd)
"Who is my neighbor?" (Luke 10:29).
Meta. Every soul that dwells upon the earth is your neighbor, "my neighbor." There is no such thing as distance in Spirit nor in the operation of spiritual laws. Through us must the law of divine love bind up and heal wounds, dissolve error, and restore light and order from out of chaos.
To bind up the wounds (Luke 10:34) is to seek in every way to preserve the forms in which life manifests. Those who would lay hold on eternal life must do this. We all have life, and it is God's eternal life, but it does not become ours in reality until we consciously realize this fact. The one who enters into eternal life, as did Jesus, must lay hold on that life omnipresent and make it one with his body. This is the secret of inheriting "eternal life."
