Thinking about what actually matters, what is real what isn’t, what is perceived versus what is manufactured by our perception. For one who sees the world as evil, the world is evil, for one who sees the world as inherently good, the world is good. The balance is the point of God – dark versus light, cold and hot, health and disease, women and men, birth and death and which side we take becomes our reality – like a constant tug of war we are pulled toward one side or the other.
Reading the Gospel though, I also struggle with being a sheep and all the references to things that have no point of reference to me today. I know there is deeper meaning and in that meaning lies truth, but that to me is too much interpretation. I think it is all simpler. I still hope to have a clearer more relevant point of reference for myself now. I have to think it is all much simpler – and that is why God chose to use a sheep as our representative. But I still need more clarity to understand better, I began to think of God as the Master Designer, He came up with the blueprint for our lives and imprinted it in every cell in our bodies and we called this blue print DNA. DNA is like a ladder, what if it is like a ladder connecting us to God, to our Designer? He relies on us to be the builder, the one who executes His design, we can modify it to fit our needs like any good customization and He even helps – mostly when we ask though. What if He is connected to us through our DNA and millions of connections? I envisioned lifelines snapped into our DNA through which the Designer transmits energy and we receive and send back energy – like a circuit – like sacred geometry. If that is the case, then no one is more or less significant than anyone else. We are just connections to God. I think denying our Designer can weaken the connection – maybe prayer keeps the flow of energy going. The person with no connection runs for awhile, until his battery runs out and then maybe his energy is absorbed by someone else – energy never dies it is just transformed.
And then what if the energy of God is in water, living water as Jesus references in John 4:13-14:
Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again;, but whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Bodies are 60% water, brains even more, water becomes the great conductor of energy and we are basically a bag of water with energy running through it. Water also takes the shape of its container – it fulfills the design in a way. Water is so crucial to the life of the Church too – we Baptize with water, we sign ourselves with water, we bless with water. Water is life maybe physically because it is so spiritually connected.
So what actually matters, energy flows to us through the Designer, water animates us and we bloom. I guess we, like flowers, are blooms of God.
