One day you will know!!!

Just a few quotes and my thoughts about them to prepare for the New Year that is fast approaching….

From my Friend, Ellen Grace O’Brian – some good advise:

“Start the day with an affirmative thought. Live the day with confidence in the Infinite. Conclude the day with thoughts of the blessings you experienced. Think on those things.”

And from my favorite Franciscan Priest, Fr. Richard Rohr…such a wise man. Tuesday, December 27

Feast of John the Beloved

One day you will know that I am in the Father, you are in me, and I am in you.

~ John 14:20

We are programmed and wired for union, and even for divine union. We are

incapable of even imagining actual union between the human and the

divine unless we see it in one concrete place. That is the way that

Jesus “saves” us! His mere existence as a God-Human tells us it is

not only possible for him but real for us too. This is why Jesus says

“Follow Me!” This is why he says that what he has done, we also can

and must do (John 3:35, 5:20, 13:15, 14:12 [1]). The mystery is

transmitted from person to person, like a wonderful contagion of Spirit.

This Eternal “Christ Mystery” first began with the Big Bang 14.5

billion years ago. As John Duns Scotus put it, “Christ was the first

idea in the mind of God!” God chose from the very beginning to

materialize, and that materialization is called creation or “the Body

of Christ.”

We are collectively the body of Christ. No person, place or  or thing is left out. Most of us are unconscious and don’t know who we truly are so we get confused, angry, frustrated, disappointed and give up on the possibilities that are within us.

Take my friend Ellen’s advise just see what happens. Test the waters of Spiritual Life this way and be surprised at what happens.

“Start the day with an affirmative thought. Live the day with confidence in the Infinite. Conclude the day with thoughts of the blessings you experienced. Think on those things.”

I read the following thoughts from a book called, God the Oledest Question another priest….a Jesuit priest. Those so far are my favorite men. Franciscan and Jesuits. They are my kind of thinkers. Anyway here’s something more to think about.

“Science declares that there can be no entity faster than light. But science delights in playing “what if.” What if there were a reality faster than light? It would be moving so fast that it would be everywhere at once.”
Isn’t that what we are taught about God.” Think about God as a speed faster than light. I do that a lot. Let me know what you think!!!
