There have been some major events happen in my lifetime. For the most part I was either too young, or disconnected from myself to see what was really happening. There was the Viet Nam war while I was a young child. Space travels, achievements and tragedies. Our technology is moving fast which is proof of the evolving mind of man. The medical field, Ecology, Economy, and virtually every part of our lives have been evolving.
We are not only evolving ‘into’ or away from an archaic system but rather towards what was purposefully intended. There are not very many systems, products, inventions that do not getter better developed over time. But the reality the first prototypes are necessary in the evolutionary process of development of a product. I have a feeling that Adam was the prototype for humanity, of which needed to evolve and mature. So God created him perfect and complete in him, but he would have to evolve in his relationship with His God, Himself, and others in order to fully come to realize the full potential of the intent of God.
Every person alive is in potentiality state. To come to ‘being’ or actuality state of awareness it takes work or force that creates motion. The mystery that I am discovering is that in physics an object at rest tends to remain at rest, and in a perfect world an object in motion does the same, remains in motion. These are the common physical laws of nature or I call them laws of limitation. God says even of Himself that on the 7th day He rested from all of His works. Yet if you look at the scripture in Genesis 2 you will find God manifesting in the 7th day that which was created in the previous 6 days. Hebrews tells us we must labor to enter into His rest. And again he that is at rest ceases from his own works. The only way to ever evolve into the actually of the first created man is to cease from our own works, yet in His rest fulfill His!
I woke up about 2 weeks ago with this idea and explanation. I saw a rocket ship with massive thrust and energy so LABORING. Once the rocket got to the outer atmosphere there was no more need of the energy and power it was free. Free from the limitation. And so in laboring from doing it becomes a being in a state of perpetual orbit. So there is a natural relationship to the heavenly rest and moving perpetually! But you have to get beyond limitations and all the things associated with it.
I was captured by the Oklahoma City Bombing. I saw it close up since I lived only 20 minutes from the site. I wrote songs, donated, helped, and I was certainly moved at the evil but the good that was revealed in crisis. I am a firm believer that the Hero’s never manifest until there is a crisis. Sometimes I think God allows crisis to refocus and release the Hero inside of each of us. I was very involved mentally, and spiritually with the bombing. Then came the gulf war, my wife and I were watching it non stop. I just couldn’t believe it.
The Twin towers was a devastation beyond belief. I didn’t even work that day. We woke up and saw the news from the very first plane crash and tried to track every moment.
But nothing has captured my heart and spirit like the Revolutionary process taking place in the Middle East and Africa. Since I have good friends in the area it has forced me to attach emotionally. I was talking to some friends of mine about the events that are taking place right before our eyes. And let me say here thank God for technology and community or this would not have been pulled off. As I was engulfed in the Egypt situation I realized that a revolution could never have been able to hold their ground and stand with out true community. It seems those who held the square were totally reliant upon their neighbors and friends and yes even strangers for the basics to survive for 18 days. And for all of those days caring community minded people did just that. So I learned a lot about the human spirit, and resolve. And when push comes to shove Crisis makes friends of all. CRISIS is the impetus for change, and it has a way of shrinking our prejudices, and focusing upon the task at hand. You see this square was a reality of those of different faiths, ethnic, socialist, and economic backgrounds. But once the revolutionary crises hit all of that went out that window.
I mean Crisis has an amazing ability to create a sense of oneness! The scriptures tell us that first the natural then the spiritual. I was speaking to my friend the other day concerning all of the revolutions and peaceful protests in the earth today. I feel in my heart of hearts that it is a fore runner for the spiritual reality of the Revolution of Consciousness. There is an awaking in humanity as never before that we are one, that we are spirit, and many are waking up to that reality. I believe they and us will revolutionize everything that brings limitation and bondage.
I found this short film: For me it speaks to the reality of whats happening at this moment in the earth. If you lay aside your believe system for a few minutes and realize what this means from your point of view ….then you will be very encouraged!
Grace & Peace
Upon us all!
