Grievances are not real – merely phantoms; wisps of delusional smoke. My quest is to shine bright which is not possible as a separate little ego, bereft of any source but as a child of God, a vessel; a lamp ready and primed to receive God’s fire. My job is to look at my grievances and let them dissolve away and my motivation is to enable my brothers and sisters to see their way too. It’s not my strength alone I share but the gift of grace I pass on to my brothers and sisters. The Christ Jesus is that light. The source of all that is.
Your light is dearer to me than all the trinkets I may play with to keep me from seeing your light and the adornments I use to hide the light within me. Salvation is my only need. This is it. So simple yet so alludes the ego mind. I do not need to search for my purpose or meaning in this world. I have always known it really.
“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
T. S. Eliot
