There is something that changes with experience. In my own journey it is as if the sum of the parts comes together in a way defying logic and understanding. The formula of combining an open mind with a series of relationship interactions in a variety of different situations would seem simple enough to understand. In reality the outcome is as complex as anything I have ever tried to understand. It is as if the reality of relationships creates its own understanding. This understanding has a power beyond description. Among the results include the following. My soul values shift in ways I didn’t expect. My understanding and grip on hope grows or shrinks in disproportionate measure. Even the relational trust quotient which exists between every human being and each other grows stronger or becomes weaker.
It isn’t enough to know the steps. Seeing the process played out in animation or simulation will not suffice. Reading about what has, is, or will occur is no substitute. Experience is the only answer to the formula.
Nobody is immune. Age doesn’t matter. Even those who came before us faced the same unknown. Even with the knowledge of a friend’s death the act of seeing the site made a difference. The conversation capturing the gateway was as simple as a question and answer.
“‘Where did you put him?’ ‘Master, come and see.’” (John 11.34)
Today is a new day, full of the unknown. There should be no question of the baggage each of us carries into it but this doesn’t need to be the determinate of what will happen. There will be those out to exploit and control but letting our fear of evil control us is not the answer. We have a unique window in which to experience God and others touching us with compassion, love, and sympathy. We can experience and in turn give others the experience of Divinity living within. A new day is here, ready and waiting. What happens next is your choice and mine. Everything is possible. Anything can happen. The power to experience is ours.
