The Bubble Of Our Person
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Yes, a mystery, 1 but not rocket-science.
Spiritual ego — or maybe call it our own blind-spot — is hard to detect… it is too easy to be intimidated even by our own thoughts and feelings.
It requires some dedication and interest to explore and discover that life is more than what we believe or assume.

Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.”
The Bible is amazing, but it is easy to get lost in language, fantasy and wishful thinking if we are not very careful and gentle within our own mind.
“For Wisdom dealt with mortal powers,
Where truth in closest words shall fail,
When truth embodied in a tale
Shall enter in at lowly doors.”

“Whether you say ‘God is everywhere’ or ‘everything is one energy’ – it is the same reality, expressed in different ways.”
