Divine Chaos Can Be a Good Thing
“To say it clearly, the Holy Spirit annoys us. Because he moves us”, he explained, “he makes us journey, he pushes the Church to go forward,” – Pope Francis, 2013 in Vatican Insider
As many of you have heard me say there is always a message in the chaos. This came to me from Entering the Castle by Caroline Myss who states, “Mystical service means modeling calm in chaos, kindness amid anger, forgiveness at all times, personal integrity-to live, in other words, mindful that every second offers a choice either to channel grace or to withhold it.”
You may think that when things aren’t going well, God is not in them. This is not the case. I’ve create a spiritual exercise for just such occasions. You will find it HERE.
I’ve learned a great deal from Myss’s book and for those of you on a seriously deep spiritual path, I encourage you to not just read, but study it.
