One of my recent revelations in life is simply this; the most complex things in life are actually quite simple. If they cannot be stated in simple and direct terms you probably haven’t come to grip with the heart of the idea. I don’t know when this “insight” came into focus. There is no specific event, revelation, or experience. Yet the most powerful ideas, principles, and concepts are ones that, once stated, can be understood without a personal guide. The simplicity should not be confused with ideas that have no depth, content, or breath. The opposite is true. Once on the subject, conversations can go from level to level, minutes into hours, while those in the know get more and more engaged, excited, and passionate.
Politicians have, in general, gotten this message. As a result they try to present their agendas, manifestos in the England, as something you could pin up on the wall in the kitchen. One party has even gone to the extent of having them printed in a simple handwriting font. Yet one always needs to remember that simplicity, content, and belief are not automatically linked!
Jesus understood this message. As passionately and consistently as he talked about love, acceptance, and mercy he realized that some still didn’t get it. There was a matter of fact attitude permeating his words at the end. Simply put, “not loving me means not keeping my words. The message you are hearing isn't mine. It's the message of the Father who sent me.” (John 14.24)
As I reflect on my purpose and journey I have cause to wonder. Do I understand my intent? Have I distilled it to a point that there is a tag line capturing what I am all about? If so, does it resonate as truth filled with purpose? Do those around me experience my intent or is reality quite different?
Your journey will be different than mine. It isn’t the difference which matters. It is the connection with Divinity and the steps that follow with God and those in your community.
