Replying to LO26349 --
At's words, below, remind me of a deep belief I have, along with many of
you, about the divine within us. I like to think that Jesus, in saying
that we should suffer ourselves to come to God, spoke on two levels: on
the more visible level, he addressed many people by telling them that if
they followed the Way, they, too, would sit beside the Maker in heaven.
And He spoke, also, to those who, like his fellow Essenes, delved deeper.
If you suffer yourself to find the divinity inside you, then you, like I,
will find revelation in Love.
I believe it was St. Francis who echoed this thought when he said that man
looks for what is looking.
I deeply believe that all the great seers down through the ages have in
fact seen this Truth. I repeat once again my favorite quatrain from Rumi:
I have lived on the lip of insanity,
wanting to know reasons,
knocking on a door. It opens.
I've been knocking from the inside!
With love and hope,
