Denise’s Daring Daydreams – 09/19/2013

In the Gospel of John, a ruler (a great leader) by the name of Nicodemus came to visit Jesus in the darkness.  Quite interestingly most of us come to the Christ in times of darkness in our lives.  That doesn’t mean that we are speaking to Jesus or the Christ within at nighttime in the light of the moon, What that means to me is that I don’t usually go to my own Christ nature until my ego has tried and failed and I find myself in the middle of unmanageable darkness and chaos.

Isn’t it interesting that many times we don’t pray or meditate until things get….soo bad that we can’t find a way out if the darkness.  I remember when that was the reality of my life.  I remember being in such darkness that I had a feeling that I would die.  I also remember a friend reaching out to me in love and leading me to Unity….a place where I was offered a new kind of prayer that assisted me in reaching the Christ spirit within me.

When the ruler asked Jesus, how can I inherit the kingdom of heaven…..that place of love joy and peace that Jesus had talked about over and over in many if his talks…..the answer was one that Nicodemus did not understand.  Quite frankly, I’m not sure on a good day most of us really “get” what Jesus was talking about.  YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!  What exactly does that mean!

I’m sure Nicodemus, being the intellectual leader that he was, thought that Jesus would give him a list of do’s and don’t s or some rules and procedures that would shift him right into heaven.  When Jesus gave the answer he did, all bets were off.  Now what?   What exactly did he mean?

Join us on Sunday morning as we continue the ABC’s of Practical Christianity and flow from the darkness into the light.  We also have the amazing Doug Beale sharing special music with us this Sunday.  It is going to be great Celebration Service!    Namaste’. Denise
