Sometimes the obvious just isn’t. One cannot believe what the senses are saying, even if it is obvious. Could this really be true? A repeat experience helps affirm what you know to be true. Several can actually cement the experience. Yet even then, as time fades, the memory begins to be questioned. Does she really love me? Could this really be true? Is it really over?
I am in the middle of many new experiences. I have no idea what is really true versus what might simply be a dream. Did I really see what I thought I saw? Could the potential really be as good as I think it is? Will the commitments made by others really come true? Am I simply a mark in the middle of a con? Is this simply a dream?
Throughout the ages people have required repeated experiences. Even then the validation took more time to become reality. Several witnessed Jesus’ presence, his voice, but they still were not sure. So “Jesus repeated his greeting: ‘Peace to you. Just as the Father sent me, I send you.’” (John 20.21) The validation still would not be complete; more repeats would be required. My parents and yours struggle with the same reality younger generations accept as norm. We, each of us, struggle to know and accept we are part of a community filled with compassion, mercy, and love. God has given us the experience and knows repeats will be required if we are to know its reality.
Some think this reality is just for the chosen, whoever they are. I find a God which loves each unconditionally, fully, and completely, regardless of our behavior, actions, and choices. I know it is hard to accept our Divine acceptance. I know the reality will require repeated experiences to become real. I know I have a part to play.
Today can be part of the part. You and I can experience Divine’s reality anew. We can help others experience the same. Repeats are not bad! They are our opportunity to participate in and with Divinity.
