What is the origin of our words? Where is the headwater of our thoughts? Even if we have pure intentions, how much do we allow them to be polluted by the agendas and attitudes of others who are in bondage to their own dramas and destructive patterns?
Surely we all experience difficult situations and struggle to react to them in an honorable way (or at least we should) and are pulled in different directions that challenge our hearts and minds to find the right words that express what we feel, think and believe so that we can remain as forces of good, peace and love to those around us.
But how we do access these often-hard-to-find emotions and thoughts in the midst of chaotic, traumatic and confusing situations?
Should we tell ourselves that some people just “good” and others just “bad”? Do we ignore a “log in our own eye while trying to remove the speck from another’s“?
To add to our confusion, the body also has it’s own distinct and powerful consciousness that impacts our lives. Scientists like Bruce Lipton and Candance Pert have done remarkable research on this subject; and although any teenager will surely attest to their findings, we often forget that we are often under the will of our reactionary, foolish bodies that drive us into anger, fear and wickedness.
So, how do we escape? Will we ever “put all works of the devil under foot” to allow divine thoughts, words and actions to flow through us?
If you look into your present, past and future and see far too much anger, sadness, anxiety, and fear you have the power to transcend these influences and be resurrected into a new form, under new management, with great authority and power to cast down the cruel spirits at work, shed off our heavy flesh and bones shell, and move into a walk led by The Spirit unencumbered by these forces.
In my experience this is done by communion and conscious pursuit of God and his perfect Son, Jesus Christ.
Surely this “transcending” is a ladder that we climb and fall on, up and down, every day—sometimes closer, and sometimes farther away…
