Maybe enlightenment

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                 When they looked around,          they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.                   —Mark 9.8

Sometimes you forget to think, to analyze and compartmentalize, and instead you just gaze, and finally you really see, see the glory hidden in the ordinary, the light in the stone, the angelic being in the person next to you.

Maybe righteousness is not moral perfection but seeing clearly, with the delight and wonder with which God sees, seeing with eyes for holiness, seeing the divine in people and treating them so.

Maybe faith is not certitude but seeing what is truly before you, seeing the bud in the bud, the child in the child, and remembering even when you do not see.

Maybe enlightenment is not understanding but seeing the light as if for the first time.

Maybe wisdom is not knowing but looking.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
