My Links

I am one with the rest of humanity. In this interconnectedness, do I share in the sufferings and pain of others by bearing my own desolation with strength and courage? In so doing, do I help alleviate in some way the pain and misery of others? Is there merit for me and for others when I face up to my desert experience with faith and hope that this is all but part of the journey?

Because of the interconnectedness, is the good I am doing rippling out into the universe creating positive cosmic energy? Like, does it trigger the creation of a new star that will generate more light and energy? Or closer to home, does my dedication and service to Jonathan and Jane keep President Obama in office? Has my diligence in my ILM studies helped elect Cardinal Bergoglio as the new Pope Francis I?

Christ often talked of his oneness with the Father. Who he is and what he did reflected what the Father is and what he wanted done. He gathers everyone and everything in the Father through his commandment of love. When I think and write about these things, the links I have with the rest of humanity and with the Divine, I sometimes feel dealing in things esoteric and borderline fringe. But I keep in my faith that I just go where the Spirit leads me. People may not want to kill me like they did to Jesus. But there will be some who will be wondering whether I am losing it.

I pray that these links will become stronger and clearer as I persevere in my daily practice of reflecting on God’s Word and what it means and is saying to me in my here and now.

Then Jesus cried out as he was teaching in the temple, ‘You know me, and you know where I am from. I have not come on my own. But the one who sent me is true, and you do not know him. I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me.’ Then they tried to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him, because his hour had not yet come.
John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30
