For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost ~ Luke 19:10
C.S. Lewis says that one of the differences that brought him to Christianity, from Atheism, was the realization that God is Seeking us.
We do not need to go through the rituals and chants, the meditations and sacrifices, we simply need to be aware of Gods message in our daily lives. Do not seek but accept the invitation to be received.
The Message comes. It may be a flock of birds, a young pan handlers’ face, a field of grasses reflecting the morning sun, it comes when you do not seek but remain open.
Something stirs – it’s His voice. Listen, it is The Way.
The accelerating daily demands and distractions blind us to The Way.
A peaceful existence is available if you understand that your daily distractions do not control you. That promotion, your child’s lessons, your mounting debt, your relationships are temporary and will all pass over time.
You can feel it if you try. Those moments when, perhaps looking at a sunset or sitting by the ocean, getting a hug from a loved one, or just closing you eyes for a moment you can find that place inside that is always at peace. Look for it.
The Lord Said, I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will have the light of life. JN 8-12
That light is in all of us. We must seek it and reconnect. This light leads to The Way. The Way to peace, the path of truth which is always at peace. Steal away a moment to find it in your heart – its there and it connects you to all that is real.
Anchor yourself to it and your daily demands become less demanding.
