Hmm... yes, I do have an idea, act as if, talk (pray) to God as if he can and does hear you, or if you mean OTOH reporting back from the domain of
freedom and creativity, to us, give us a piece of art, a poem, anything you like it's all wide open and the sky is the limit..
As to when the bridgegroom comes, we must know that to accept the invitation is also to invite the one who invites us, and he comes fast light
And where there remains an unmet need or a yearning that we cannot satisfy in one life i.e.: in this life, we must have the hope that there is and
will be another world or a future world (that we are creating even now) wherein that need shall be met.
The implication here is that something marvelous and grand is being held in reserve for us, while we're tested in every way imaginable in the school
of the earth plane, but since anything real and authentic to BE real in some form or another and at some point down the line - it must at least
to manifest, and therefore we must summon the courage to at least acknowledge the possibility, that once the invitation went out and was
accepted by us, that the bridegroom or the Host is already
there, at the door, waiting, inviting us in to the new domain of freedom and the
expansive domain of all new creative possibility for the human being, so yes, there's a giddy sense of urgency to it, and that IS fun and joyful, and
hey God's not going to hold out forever.. We get what we pray for, and indeed he DOES hear our prayers, not prayers of petition which always come at
the end of our rope (how pathetic), but a being with and a communion, and a mutually shared koinonia
of intimate participation and true fellowship (sharing of art and being with).
And the creative process needn't be some outward expression only, it can be simply who we are choosing to be and to become even through the eternally
unfolding present moment and even when by ourselves (yet never completely alone ever again).
Therefore we can either get creative in our action whether external or internal, or we can simply be still and know that God is God.
And let's face it - we are as incomprehensible as God, to ourselves, and we had nothing to lose but an inauthentic self to begin with, so as an
uncompromising, all-or-nothing proposition, as "scary" as that might at first appear to be - because it's what's real and true and authentic and
freely and fully self expressed as childlike co-creation (playful, joyful) - here's the key - because it's the ONLY thing in the final analysis that's
reasonable (love), it cannot be and never was an imposition upon the mind of man!
"Come unto me all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest, because my burden is easy and my yoke is light!" (said with a big smile).
We're chicken - because what's being offered us, is both too good to be true and even if it is true (which we fear it may be), we are most certainly
not worthy of it, so that's the supreme challenge then - how to have the audacity and the courage and the childlike wonderment to reach out and simply
accept this gift that by it's very nature is both of incalculable value and one for which there is absolutely nothing we can do to either earn or
deserve it (Oh my God that's so FUNNY!).
So I can thank Jesus, like a literalist fundy conservative evangelical (Pa-rayze JayZUZ), but I have the real reason, as the reason for faith, because
nothing else makes any sense or is even worthwhile in the final analysis, and that's funny too, to understand and recognize that there are two
Christianities, one that isn't entirely authentic, where it may be said, like Carl Jung that "religion is a defense against having an authentic
and another that is authentic and that may be known by anyone by it's love. ("Love one another as I have loved you.")
Never accept a false Jesus, but hey we all know quality when we see it, or in this case because we're talking about spiritual things, when we intuit
it, but how sad and funny are the inauthentic Christians, then again sometimes you just have to "act as if" and then fake it until you make it... the
end result is the same I guess, but I don't want half the treasure, I would like all of it please and thank you very much God..
I could never accept things point blank as a child. No I just HAD to understand the how and why of it, or the who of it whatever the case may be.
Spent half my life a staunch atheist in rebellion.. but then I looked again, hard, and with an open mind, and now I don't even know where I'd be if I
didn't re-investigate free from any sort of contemptuous bias prior to investigation.
I certainly wouldn't be here sharing this stuff with you, I wouldn't know how. Maybe God works in mysterious ways.. that's what I think, I think he's
very funny, however subtle.
