Impatience is an accepted norm today. People actually expect others to be impatience, finding it odd or strange when they are not. It is as if the fast pace, virtual world we live has overcome us all! We expect impatience. We accept frustration. We live with a disconnect that is never quite resolved. Everything comes and goes in ways we do not understand. Yet, everything seems ok because the links between reality and us are one we know exist primarily in our minds, not in the real world.
I look around me and wonder. Is there a connection between corporate life and the relationships we have with each other? Does the fact we often use to words we know are not completely true and accurate to describe a situation cause of worry? Should we worry about the higher purpose (lack) of it all? Can we wonder about the demands and sacrifices we make for something or someone who is not accountable in return?
Even if I make the connection I find myself losing it again when it comes to political parties and causes. The links between words and action, rhetoric and realized belief, and core values and life are tenuous at best! Nothing is quite as it seems. Everything is an illusion, or at least most of it is. This disconnect continues through many of life’s foundations.
I find the gap for many extends right through their relationship with Divinity. It is again as if nothing is real, tangible, or experiential. The words John recorded centuries ago apply equally today; “you don't have to wait for the End. I [God] am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in me, even though he or she dies, will live.” (John 11.25)
I find there is a concrete link between God and life itself. We can experience Divinity’s touch. Conversations are all around us if we care to listen. Insights are here and there for observing. We can have a conversation, moment by moment. God is here, today, right now, linked to your life and mine.
