Skewed Society Perspectives Key to Spiritual Treasure?

Look at all the skewed lines on the world map. Notice how the Eastern side of South America fits into the Western side of Africa? Then look at how Northwest of Africa and Northward fits in the slot between Florida and Northward. If we continue to connect all the skewed lines corresponding to a best-fit, the world will become a round ball. That round ball would be covered with one massive body of water. Somehow, like a donut soaking in a cup of coffee and breaking into pieces, the round earth was soaking in water and broke into pieces to form the land masses. Spiritually, our inner life is a lot like that.

We often have a skewed vision of the mysteries that exist within us, and the power that is yet to be unlocked. Think of all the unopened territory of our internal life as a round ball like the moon and all the other planets. Then, think of the soft and moist qualities of the spiritual fruit as being the waters soaking that ball of nothingness. By the waters of the spiritual fruit, our inner life breaks open into the presence of God where we experience life within a new world. Truly, we discover that we are not part of the old barren and fruitless planet at all, but we are citizens of a mysterious and powerful kingdom blossoming with mysterious life. To be broken is to unlock the mysteries of our inner life.

Christ gave a parable that says this, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.” Christ in us sees the potential of the round and hard unopened ball as a pearl of great price. As we continue to live by the waters of the spiritual fruit, internal treasures open to us.

  1. Thoughtful words you write. We are spiritual beings capable of great love and compassion battling the physical realm of earth which is capable of immense hatred. All the great scriptures tell us to look within for the victory, don’t they?

    1. Yes! Sometimes we confuse the egg with a chunk of coal. By the way, “Zealot” came in today, I read the back cover and looking forward to delving into the pages. I just wanted to respond to your comment before I do lunch. Also, I will read your blog “John McCain” after lunch. Peace and love.
