Getting back into Sync

29230

Good Day, God!

Wow!  This midmorning I was definitely Out-of-Sync! Grumpy! Worried about so much stuff that I couldn’t keep it all straight. And this was during my Centering Prayer time, too. I know this is “to be expected” and probably healthy to get a good look at some of the stuff down inside me. Still . . . I’d much prefer to float on the calm surface that face a splintered assortment of “pick-up-sticks” of fears and upsets from down deep.

And, God, at some point toward the end of my prayer time I felt as if You said:
                  Don’t worry. I’m going to surprise you.

I started to laugh. You are LOVE, God. Still, Your perspective is so different from mine — sufficiently different that I’m not keen on being surprised by You.  But, it did stop my fretting!  There is no point in fretting about what I can’t even imagine!

Meanwhile I spotted this book on “Getting in sync” in our local library’s bookstore. And I love it. It is all about how we humans differ in our ability to handle sensory inputs. Each member of this family has a different deviation from “normal.” But, they understand how they differ! And that makes room for compassion and patience. Best of all, there are exercises at the end of the book to help balance sensory inputs for each variation.

Being different is so much better than being wrong or bad!
