Meditation Thought: “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17)
“You are curled up in a tight ball of self – of inward introspection. Let Me enable you to relax, to stretch, to unfold yourself – exposing yourself to all of the wonder and the glory of the Kingdom on earth. Fear not – your protection lies not within yourself, but within the love with which you were created.
It is possible to seek life on a new level – that is the awakening of a ‘sinner’. Those who are smug and sure that the level where they live is the only ‘proper’ one and that everyone should come to their level are welcome to stay there. But it is not the level where I intend for anyone to remain. It is but a stepping-stone to a level of new consciousness: think of it as comparing the landscape as the sky is overcast, and the difference in the same landscape when it is flooded with sunlight. The sunlight gives a clarity, a purifying element, a beauty which was previously lacking.
It is through the light given off by the Son touching earth that the landscape of your life is enhanced. The light was created by the Father, but directed by the Son to wherever light could reach to dispel darkness. Darkness cannot be dispelled unless light is brought where it is.
If you surround the darkness with your protective shell of rigid ideas, selfish motives, and fear of change or challenge, then the light cannot penetrate to dispel the darkness within.”
