Dipped in Glory

I began a new blog post tonight about the Ego... seems its been on my mind as of late after reading such articles as THIS. But, as I reread my dissertation, I realized that I really didn't know what I was talking about and the article was line after line of jibberish. It seems as though it is true that there is so much in spirituality, consciousness, and psychology that cannot be put into language... things that are truly beyond words and can only be experienced.

I found myself spouting off like an incoherant boob and so I decided to spare you all the trainwreck. In the meantime, challenge yourself by reading the article that I spoke of above.

On a side note: We began a new series at the church today entitled "Dipped in Glory." This is a very cool subject about being submerged in God's Spirit or Presence - like an apple dipped in caramel - or more strikingly - like the cosmos being the "womb" of God in which we find ourselves completely inside of "her." It's about being so overwhelmed with God that one is almost afraid - so astonished and full of wonder that you almost feel ready to burst. It is the "abundant life" that John's Jesus speaks of. It is drowning in the splendor of the Creation. It is tuning in to the Spirit of God... to the Ground of Being... to the I AM and finding pure delight and ecstacy in the process.

It makes me glad to be alive.

Thank you very much Trev.

Be still and Know, a miracle is happening right NOW!

You may have already discovered/revealed a joy, a bliss so powerful it is beyond words. So elegant, so simple it is hidden EVERYWHERE.

I am smiling,
