What is the truth when everyone interprets reality in his way? Life in every aspect of creation has been adapted or conditioned according to the specific culture. It is the thoughts, reasoning, or imaginations about whatever issue on the table of whoever is interpreting the facts. Is it possible to live free from the ancestor’s ideas, influences, and judgments? Is it getting rid of that kind of illusions what some say that sets us free?
When I read Richard Rohr’s concept of the word persona as an invisible presence, the idea of how, or if had I masked God’s character, as an alter ego, jumped into my imagination. Easier was to understand that as the sound waves, penetrates…“sonare” in all space. Someone should give more thought to “He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me?” Or, as in Luke 10:16? “We live and move and have our being in God?” another quote showing God’s Presence consistently, as it is said to be omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient… to be the cause and effect of everything.
Accepting the fact that we belong in God is to take life for what it is…life to live it with joy. And for this, I mean living to be nourished with all goodness that was created from the very beginning when they decided to “become flesh” and uttered …” Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…”. Consciously become part of God’s family, of God’s intention and design.
The need for a kind of order has participated in taken humanity away from reality when trying to box every concept into categories that do not picture reality as it is but an individual possible misrepresentation. Can we see just what it is without trying to set it into one label apart from the thing itself? Can we see and focus on reality without the intervention of preconceptions, prejudices, ideas, or preferences? Can we allow life flow through us just for the pleasure of living? Allow all goodness to pollute our surroundings, enjoying the spring, not the photo of the trees and creeks.
Awareness, awareness, awareness in Anthony de Mello‘s words, or living the now as Eckart Tolle put it, practicing the Presence…experiencing life feeling God in and around, the great secret to adjustment when the Spirit is present acting out from harmony, love, excitement, all spiritual things that were created from the beginning…all good as life itself. And all good for all God’s children, like a good father who does not show favoritism in dealing with people, as Peter said in Acts 10:34 when the Jews invited him to preach.
