“For they perceive not the light”

I think the attitude of every light bearer is something like this:

“In the absence of an enemy
You think me the enemy
In the presence of an enemy
I am your greatest friend”

It’s becoming more and more clear to me that one’s ability to discern light is proportional to the degree of darkness they perceive. People hold on so tightly to their current structures because they haven’t yet faced the earthquakes that reveal their insufficiencies. Nobody who thinks Babylon has all the answers will see those insisting on exodus as friendly. It’s only after the apocalypse (Greek pun intended) that people have a better idea of what’s valuable, and what isn’t.

“The things of God are of deep import, and time and experience and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O Man, if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost Heavens, and search into and contemplate the lowest considerations of the darkest abyss, and expand upon the broad considerations of eternal expanse; he must commune with God.”

One thought on ““For they perceive not the light””

  1. And after the earthquake – after the apocalypse – peace…freedom. And the light comes flooding in from so many places…places which we once feared.
