We talk about salvation as if it is an event, a diploma, a point in time, something with a frame and boundaries and a rejection of everything else about us. Salvation is not this. Salvation is pervasive.
Same with carrying your cross, going out into the world, and so forth. Salvation and all these life axioms are in the divorce we are suffering, the depression, the trouble with sleep, the courage we demonstrate going into public, the fear we succumb to, the freedom we give up to anxiety – this is all about salvation. This is what going into the world means. It’s not one or the other.
When we say, the world will fall away, it is saying that there are no dividers any more. If you’ve ever heard the term, the best way to get rid of an enemy is to make her a friend, this is the same idea. God who is and who is personal takes away the dividers and makes us Her business.
God who is and who is personal is important for self care because She is all about Me.
Self-care tip: Let the barriers go and accept the presence of Love.
Question: Does God improve your self care? Do you see dividers between your personal stuff and what is, who is, God? How does that serve you, Me?
Keep on people of courage!
