By living and abiding by the structure that our spiritual awakening has created we see what it means to live a healthy balanced lifestyle. Healthy work ethic and healthy relationships are what make up our lives. By striving for clarity in our work as it is carefully directed towards a goal that is meant to carry on our legacy we understand that our fingerprints on the world will not be forgotten. Through character and resilience we set our goals higher than the world. Relationships are what make up the world and the circle of life. By striving towards increasing the glue that holds our relationships together we are reinforcing the building blocks of how the world came to be. In the beginning, God had a direct relationship with His Son before the world came to be, for He was the Son who would give His life for the world. This relationship between God and His Son is our vision for the entire world. Each day we are to become more and more like God and His Son. Greater love hath no man than this…
INFINITY IN A JAR
IT WAS MORNING. The teacher came to my room holding a little clay jar.
“A question,” he said. “Can that which is little contain that which is big?”
“No,” I answered.
“Can that which is finite encompass that which is infinite?”
“No,” I said again.
“But it can,” he replied.
He lifted the jar and removed the cap from its top.
“It can,” he said again. “It can if it’s an open vessel. A closed vessel can never contain anything larger than its own size. But an open vessel has no limitations. It now can contain the blowing of the wind or the outpouring of the rain. It could even contain the flowing of a river.”
“It would take a long time to contain a river.”
“It could take forever, but the principle is the same.”
“And the reason you’re showing me this . . .”
“Which is larger, that which you know or that which you don’t know?”
“That which I don’t know, I would think.”
“So then, it’s only wise that you seek that which you don’t know.”
“But how do you contain that which is bigger than you . . . that which is bigge than your ability to comprehend?”
“By becoming an open vessel,” I said.
“Yes,” said the teacher. “Only by opening yourself up can you come to know that which you don’t already know. And only by becoming an open vessel can you contain that which is greater than yourself. The truth is always greater than our knowing.
Your mind and heart are finite, clay jars. But the truth has no end. God has no end. The Eternal is infinite . . . always flowing.”
“Like the river,” I said.”
“Yes,” he said, “but when the jar opens itself up, it becomes unlimited. It can contain the waters of the river . . . So open now your mind, your heart, and your life. For it is only the open vessel and an open heart that can contain the infinity of God.”
The Mission: Today, open your mind, your heart, and your life to that which you don’t yet know, that you might contain that which is greater than yourself.
