Good Evening, God
“Oh! Look UP” my friend said. And there they were . . . these lovely blooms hiding above my head. We really don’t SEE this amazing world around us. Or the equally amazing world within us.
Last week while talking with my beloved spiritual director, I told her that I have come to believe that REALITY is God’s best gift to us. As soon as the words were out of my mouth I was FLOODED with the realization that Reality has multiple Layers and Dimensions that we humans are totally unaware of. Well, maybe the String Scientists that are talking about 11 dimensions have some idea. But, not me!
Actually, this Time and Place that I am in is WAY TOO MUCH for me to grasp. I try. I try to keep up. But, it isn’t just a matter of learning new information. More and more I am having to rebuild or upgrade my mental maps!
Information to be understood and maybe even used has to be seen in its context. I’m slow at that. When our oldest daughter slowly discovered that her assorted health troubles could be traced back to EMF radiation, I was slow to update my mental map. My old map was of us humans as physical, chemical beings. Upgrading to seeing us as BioElectric Beings took time!
But, it is important. Laurence Gonzales has said, “Some people update their mental maps more often than others. They are called survivors.”
