Notice the condition of the unseen part of our life...
Look within, to the unseen part of your life. For you alone can see it, but not always clearly. From above, it can be seen wholly and perfectly.
Do you not yet realize? That the vision and knowledge of you from above is like water. Rushing through a place. Reaching every opening, Filling every space. Flushing out what is unstable. Cleansing what is stained. Removing what must not remain.
According to his best judgment. His perfect judgment. But, what do you see in your partial vue? Can you see at all?
Or do you avoid and deny the truth of your condition? Keeping the hidden places at a distance. Preferring to ignore the crevices of darkness, that slowly and surely destroy you. Are you afraid to know its condition. To see the corrupting messages that have defined you. To see the measure of light or dark within you. The unhealthy balance between right and wrong. Your truthful condition.
Give attention to your 'self' for some time. Reflect and examine the innermost part. Watch things pass through you and from you. Whether right or wrong, good or bad. Things remain within you and things remain without.
If you listen closely, you will hear a constant call. From the deepest part of you. An inward groaning for what is right. To turn from wrong and the guilt and disquietness that follows. Moving into right and the quietness and settledness that follows.
Yes, it is a subtle and most often ignored plea for a better way. Take notice of your ways. The thoughts, desires, actions and words. Your attitude, reactions and opinions. They are very significant, most significant. They reflect the condition of the unseen part of your life.
Remember this. What is in you, comes out. What is hidden, is revealed. What you cover, is uncovered, now or later. From the abundance of your heart, your mouth speaks. You are moved by the depths of the desires within you.
What is your innermost part calling for? What is it missing. What does it need to continue peacefully and quietly. Undisturbed and patient and settled. Have you ever taken notice of this? Have you ever cared to know?
We must recognize a need, before help can take its course. LIke we recognize a disease, before we allow medicine to take its course. But medicine cannot help the unseen part of you. No, medicine is meant to try and help the body only.
We are not regularly trained to listen to this part of our life. Although it speaks loudly and clearly to those who give attention to hear it. Most do not become experts in this, but rather other things instead. Less important things.
But to you who have a desire to progress in a better way, You must become an expert in examining the smallest details of the unseen part of our lives.
The ears must be tuned. The eyes must be protected. The desires within you must be tamed. The questions must pursue answers.
Without recognizing the need of your innermost part, how can you progress in a better way?
The flame you see in your life, began with a spark. The flood you feel, began with a drop. The song you hear, began with a note. The story you are writing, began with a word.
These little things are hidden deep within you, and often go unnoticed. Some good, some bad, they are like small seeds buried within. Continuously watered by our attention and developing in time.
But we do not often know of these seeds. How and why and by whom they were planted. We do not often care about them. Nor realize the significance of their existence within us.
No, we cannot take notice of them clearly until light comes. Light enters darkness, like the rays of sun expand to the earth. In the light, a thief cannot hide forever. By the light, a plant arises beyond the surface.
When light shines, this becomes your vision. But be prepared for what you may see. Many will turn from the light to avoid the shame and guilt and regret they may find.
Inconsistencies in your ways. Poor and unfair choices. Wrong intentions and hurtful motives. Unsettledness, disquietness and restlessness. Questions and confusion concerning life. Impatience in your circumstances. Loneliness in your thoughts. Frustration at those around you. Addiction and lack of self control. Coverings of guilt and regret. Often wondering why, who, when, what & how.
Do you see these things within you? Without the desire and vision, you will not see these things clearly.
But light comes to help you. To expose these things which destroy the unseen part of you. Light comes to reveal and rescue you. To help you overcome the strength of what is hurting you. What is meant to disconnect you from life.
Do you know that the innermost part of you, Although tired and desperate, Is reaching and yearning for light? Calling and begging for right.
As You Go...
Think about his during your day. As you examine and take notice of the unseen part of your life.
There are many things in our lives that are meant to destroy. They are the opposite of God. He watches them passing through and from you. He hopes and prepares for you to turn, that he may enlighten you with his vue. That he may help you with his wisdom. That he may rescue you with his strength. All of this is given to you.
But how can they be addressed, if you never take notice of them? If you are too busy to look, and never pursue the answer. If you never desire a better way.
Give attention to your 'self' for some time. Look to the innermost part of you. Examine your 'self' every moment. What do you see? What do you do when you see it? From the very place and condition that you now stand,
I will tell you with sincere love, that you are able to be changed, and nothing is impossible if you believe.
