Hello again. It’s been two years since my last post. I do apologize for the abrupt absence.
In recent months, life has opened new doors and offered new energy, including a growing readiness to return to writing. That readiness now feels ripe. My intention is to post again on a regular basis – and to give a “heads up” when gaps are likely to occur.
I am happy to be back with this practice – and back with you.
Our Story Too
In the classic Christmas story, God took human form with the birth of Jesus. In this story, the Incarnation was a one-time, one-person event. Never happened before with anyone. Never will happen again with anyone else.
I’ve come to enjoy a different version of the Incarnation story. In this narrative, Jesus came to the realization – perhaps gradually, perhaps suddenly - that he was one with God. In its final form, this realization was not an abstract idea for Jesus, but a fully-integrated knowing that permeated his spirit, his mind and every cell in his body.
The Incarnation was not an event. It was a deep, embodied knowing. Jesus literally realized (made real) and revealed a truth that the Divine is fully present in each human. Each of us shares a divine nature. Each of us is one with God.
So … what if the Christmas story is not just about Jesus? What if the Incarnation is our story, too?
Have a merry and meaningful Christmas!
