Meditation Thought: ““Woe to you… who have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.” (Luke 11:52)
You who desire to be God, who seek to bow to none, but have others bow to you – beware! For you have not created the heavens and the earth, nor can you know what is in another’s heart.
You scorned the key that was offered to you that you might unlock the door leading to new knowledge, an awakening of wisdom. You declare your own misguided wisdom so loudly that you cannot hear the good news; you cannot hear the beating of your own heart, let alone the beating of another’s heart.
You are enamored of the satin and velvet which pleases your sense of touch as it not only clothes you in self-importance, but insulates you from the touch of those who seek to reach you that you might aid in their rescue.
You have not loved your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself, but you have loved yourself with all your heart and all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and loved your neighbor not at all.
You have sought justice for one – and given justice to none: for the key you refused to use opened the door that would have revealed to you the truth: I am in you and you are in me: it matters not who is the ‘I’ and who is the ‘you’; you have been commanded to love one another, not as you supposed for the benefit of that person without, but for your own self within. What you perceived as you doing to another, were you doing to yourself. And you knew it not, for you refused to take the key that was offered to you and place it in your door to your heart’s secret place – the place where God dwells within, and waits for you to release Him to be the Light of your life, the whole Truth revealed, the Way shown.
He dwells in every heart, and thus what you do to another you do to God. Therefore it is impossible to do justice to one, or injustice to one, except as the “one” is defined as you and me – and God in both.
