I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, “You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.” Well that is what Moses was up against – getting the slavery out of the people. They had a slavery mentality.
Since the beginning, since Adam and Eve, we have desired to be the god of things. We choose to wrong tree. “Instead of imitating and reflecting God as good image bearers should do, we start competing with God, edginess God out, playing god ourselves.” We blame each other. We become religious rivals. We judge one another.
Anam Cara is a phrase that refers to the Celtic concept of the “soul friend” in religion and spirituality.
There are patterns all around and above us. As far as the eye and telescopes can see patterns are revealed. The seasons always follow sequentially as they always have. Seeds reproduce just as they have since the beginning. Babies are born after nine months. Children grow up, mature and have babies of their own. This pattern of meaning is logos or the logic of life.
We have choices. You can make a fist or extend a hand of peace.
Do you yearn, as I do, for the just right spiritual path that will give you the meaningful life you desire? Perhaps like so many of us you have “realized that religion too often shrinks, starves, cages, and freezes aliveness rather than fostering it.” You want to live life with aliveness.
It is important that you not only commit to your spiritual life and growth.
