God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, reaching out in service and fellowship
to share the love of Christ.
Is This Overkill?
Psalm 19:12; Romans 2:14-15; John 21:17
Consciousness is like the air we breathe, take for granted, and do not appreciate. Consciousness is not the seeing but that which sees me seeing. It is not the knower but that which knows that I am knowing. It is not the observer but that which underlies and observes me observing. “ You must step back from your compulsiveness, and your attachment to yourself, to be truly conscious. Consciousness cannot be ‘just me’ because it can watch ‘me’ from a distance. That is what Jesus means when he speaks of ‘giving’ us the Spirit or sharing his consciousness with us. Just watch ourselves objectively, calmly, and compassionately. We will be able to do this from our perspective as a grounded child of God. The Spirit will help you in your weakness.” (Romans 8:26) We are being held so strongly and so deeply that we can stop holding onto, or defending, ourselves. God forever sees and loves Christ in us; it is only we who doubt our divine identity as children of God. Don’t judge, just look as God looks us. Whenever we do anything stupid, cruel, evil, or destructive to ourselves or others, we are at that moment unconscious, and unconscious of our identity. Become aware of God’s presence; Review the day with gratitude; Pay attention to our emotions.
