S A T O R I . Anyone?
We might think that physics belongs strictly to that world of external phenomena and has precious little to do with what the Japanese call SATORI, or enlightenment – but we’d be wrong! After all, it’s through our perceptions that we view things in the first place. Just as words re-present things, but have no entity of their own, so symbols re-present differentiated pieces of enlightenment. So then we might argue that the physical world consists of multifarious separate parts, but we’d be wrong again! They’re not separate. Everything in the universe is part and parcel of one complete whole, and that whole is God.
WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO ?
NOTHING. THAT’S RIGHT, NOTHING. BELIEVE AND RECEIVE. ENTER INTO JESUS’ SABBATH REST.
OKAY I WILL CONFESS THAT AT TIMES I JUST F-E-E-E-L LIKE I NEED TO DO SOMETHING. ANYTHING. RESTING CAN SEEM PRETTY TRICKY AT TIMES. THE OL’ CARNAL MIND WANTS YOU BUSY SO IT CAN WANDER OFF !!!!!
I M A G I N E
is a word I used to relegate to New Agers with the automatic assumption that it referred exclusively to the use of the human (carnal) mind and that it necessarily probed the deep recesses of darkness and confusion.
Maybe so, but taking leave of the material realm, our imagination is free to soar the boundlessness of Spirit, God. This ability is developed with use and shows us mind-boggling realities of Truth unbound!
Needless to say, now whenever I hear ‘imagine’ I need to know which realm as they’re all right here, right now right in our face!!
“May something beautiful inspire you today. May something powerful comfort you. May something true anchor you today” was the text of a beautiful meme scribed by Chuck Crisco. It gave me quite a boost, coupled with a desire to have it written on my very soul so that my further spiritual growth would start at this position and never slip back again.
You see, I had a brief flirtation with futurism when I first enlisted in social media. They were fine, loving people who wanted nothing more than to pluck me from that list of fence-sitters who more than likely would wind up in hell.
I got skeert coz I wasn’t sure what they were seeing! Whenever I posted my own “God is Love, Spirit, Life” they would jump down my throat like there was no tomorrow!
Their mantra was always to ‘rejoice’ because I wasn’t(?) going to hell like thousands, maybe millions, of others were. This thought never actually gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
But this morning I got a unique message that I think will keep me in that spiritual place that I crave: “You have got the prize: the awareness that I am IN you, I am AROUND you, I AM YOU !! . This is not a message that excludes anyone but includes everyone! It blesses all who my thoughts rest upon! And it blesses all who my thoughts don’t.
All of the above has made me very happy today!
