Hello Dear Ones,
It seems as though I triggered some feelings with my posts about my nonviolent actions at Creech. I have heard feedback from various people and I honor all the feelings and seemingly different truths.
I am also grateful because we need to start seeing humanity in a new way. One of the ways to do that is through dialogue. So thank yous to those of you who reached out to me about my posts offering your views. Let us go deeper now…
Our apathy about violence, or denial of it, is an invitation for reckoning and redemption. As I once wrote, we are better than this. Our Divine Self knows this, hence we must heal the schism.
In last week’s sermon I talked about seeing everything through the God Lens. When we begin to see through the eyes of God, life becomes different. Our vision may be blurry at first, it may be downright uncomfortable, yet we press on. Violence, as in racism, speciesism, classism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, abuse, war, and on and on, looks strikingly stark through the eyes of God. And, through the God Lens we are blinded by the beauty, the joy, the Love that Always Is. Yes.
In nonviolent training we discuss 3 different zones people inhabit; they are the comfort zone, discomfort zone, and alarm zone. If someone is too comfortable (complacency), change is less likely. However if they are pushed into alarm zone (triggered), they may not feel safe and potential for transformation is slim. Hence we recognize that the discomfort zone (mutable and curious) is often the pathway to seeing anew. It is like putting on the God Lens’.
The first step & question is this: are you committed to creating a Revolution of Love? Because part of that will entail some discomfort, some blurry vision. It will also entail seeing the wonder, the beauty, the majesty of God more than you ever have.
I would like us all to make this commitment together, that we may turn everything on its side, see anew, and moreover use the God Lens. See through the Eyes of God. Again, see through the Eyes of God. Whisper…see through the Eyes of God.
Please type yes and anything else if you are ready. I am and call us to ascend together.
