You and I are inundated with facts. In every direction, overwhelming every sense, and flooding one life are facts. Sometimes I find myself so overwhelmed by the flood that I am unable to comprehend even the simplest details. Several times in the past few days I have found myself hearing sounds, unable to decipher exactly what I was hearing, only to realize that it was the person next to me. As I struggle to come to terms with this reality, I find myself working to filter the sheet quantity of facts hitting my soul.
I do not think that I am unique. There is amble evidence that everyone around me is struggling to understand his or her world. They are bright people by any measure. Frequently they speak multiple languages, excel in the work environment, and are reasonably self-aware. It is the as if the ability to accept more and then even more information is a trigger to a state of being that understands less and less. The impact of the process and problem is that it is increasingly problematic to understand what is within our grasp, and even if we understand it, to put it into context.
I would gently acknowledge that I have not solved the problem. Actually, my path suggests that I am currently drowning in facts, evidence, and details. I know that there are there are at least three keys that I must employ if I am going to change what is.
First, taking time to reflect is critical to know what has and is happening in life.
Second, being “healthy” is mandatory if one is going to see, hear, and understand truth.
Third, one must be present if one is going to have a chance of accepting and knowing the facts. The past will cloud the process of the present. The future is another blinder that only puts the present out of reach.
In this context, food for thought; “God's covenant-word to Abraham provides the text: 'By your offspring all the families of the earth will be blessed.'” (Acts 3.25)
