Meditations on Realizing Potential…
A Time for Worshiping in Spirit and Truth
There lies within the ways of life, within its intended ways of working, a pattern of cycles… cycles of work – cycles of embedding and realizing potential. Now is a time for taking up the work of realizing potential… the realizing of potential that is inherently, intentionally present within – within each, within all; within community, within humanity. A called for realization that Christ makes possible through the completion of his work on this earth, and one which requires all-inclusive love entering the process. A realization of embedded potential – essence virtue, called work – that requires of us the exercising of free will conscious choice – a uniquely human process, yet to be fully realized. Free will conscious choice being a critical ableness for our advancing along the path of becoming fully and truly human, becoming an intentional people of earth. An ableness present within the process of Christ saying Yes to the will of the Father, an authentic yes to taking up and completing the work for which he was sent – his called work. In the pattern of Christ, we are being called to say Yes to coming from above, to coming from within… to conscientiously exercising that which is intentionally within – free will conscious choice… to say Yes to intent and intentional ways of life and love.
This time of authentic – from within – yes is the time that is lifted up, made known, through the prophecy of Christ – the truth that Christ made visible to the woman at the well:
Woman, believe me that an hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is of the Jews. But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship in spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeks such, worshiping him. God is Spirit, and the (ones) worshiping him must worship in spirit and truth. (JN 4:21-24)
Worshiping in spirit: Coming from above, coming from within, from that which is intentionally present, coming from that which reflects our having been intentionally created as living human beings… a process of being open to and manifesting spirit; a process of all-inclusive love entering through us into the working of the world.
Worshiping in spirit and in truth: The seeing, understanding and embracing of the wholeness of the truth of the Source – the Source of life, love and truth. Conscientiously organizing our processes around the essence of the teachings of Christ – if love is not present in the process, love will not be present in the outcomes. And the seeing, understanding, embracing of the wholeness of the truth of ourselves – our livingness, our humanness, our sharing in a common Source… one Source of each and all.
An authentic yes calls for developing our ableness for exercising free will conscious choice – conscientiously choosing the right and good, right for humanity, good for the whole of life. Choosing that which enables the advancing of our humanness, that which enables the ongoing eternalizing of life on and through this earth. A coming from above, coming from within, ableness that requires the accessing and development of the intuitive mind of essence… the developing of eyes that can see, ears that can hear. The mind we look to for accessing wisdom, seeing and understanding the wisdom of intent – that which is to lead us at this time… a reflective, innerly directed, developmental process that both recognizes that at this time, community is the smallest whole, and the necessity for intentional dialoguing – a two or more gathering process.
We are intended to be and become vessels for all-inclusive love entering through us into the working of the world. And as creatures of life to be and become co-creative instruments for the ongoingness and eternalizing of life on and through the earth…
Loving one another as I have loved you – all-inclusively – calls for us to be/become vessels for all-inclusive love entering into the working of the world. At this time, we are not, within ourselves, able to love all-inclusively. But through the completion of the work of Christ, the accessibility of all-inclusive love, we are being called to become vessels – vessels for all-inclusive love entering into the working of the world. Becoming such a vessel requires of us, as community, to say Yes to the vessel forming work of now – working for all the children in the world:
+ Creating a hopeful future for all children in the world,
+ Creating a culture that works for all children in the world.
It is the allness – holding deep within heart and mind, all the children in the world, not just our immediate own – that enables our being and becoming a vessel for all-inclusive love entering into the working of the world.
Loving God – the Father, the Creator, the Source of each, all, and everything – is a process of honoring and joining in the intentional ways and work of the Father. The Father’s work is eternalizing life on and through the earth. Joining in the work of the Father calls for us to be and become faithful instruments – co-creators, within the ongoing, upward unfolding, eternalizing of life on and through the earth. Earth being created for life to have a place to enter into the working of the universe. Developing ableness for being and becoming an intentional instrument – co-creator – requires our holding within heart and mind a wholeness perspective:
+ The ableness to see and honor the beauty and wisdom present within the intentional ways – the systemic wholeness, cyclical patterns of life.
+ Developing our ableness for creating disciplined ways for living and working in harmonious congruence with the intended ways of working of life on this earth.
+ Having intentionality as the start point of our thinking.
Having faith in intent. This is a time of turning away from fragmenting processes and a path of our making – a path of diminishing humanness, diminishing vitality of the life processes of earth. Away from that. A time for taking up the here and unfolding now work of returning to the path of original intent – a time of being and becoming intentional. A time requiring our having faith in intent – a faith that lies at the essence of faith that seeks communion and harmony with the intent of the Source. Faith in intent is a process – an intuitively organized, wisdom led, wholeness seeking process. Having faith in intent is coming from above, coming from essence; intuitively seeing and understanding that love entering the process is the source of hope – true hope for each and all. And understanding that when love is absent, so too is hope; when love is absent, what becomes increasingly present is a path away from the essence of the teachings of Christ. And having faith in intent recognizes that the exercising of free will conscious choice is the authorizing process that follows the willful pattern of Christ. Now is the time for:
+ Coming from above,
+ Coming from and through within,
+ For accessing and manifesting spirit,
+ For intentional wisdom leading,
+ For the coming of the kingdom – that which is present within,
+ For the unfolding of Thy Will being done on this earth.
