Place, a

That we must set aside in us for the divinity

December 29th 2012
You make plans for today, for tomorrow, for a few weeks, months or years from now. Fine, but do you set a place aside for the Lord in your plans? He says to you, ‘I have given you life, joy and beauty; I have given you a family, friends and so many other riches. Why do you not make room for me in your heart, whereas you welcome anyone in, even thieves, who will take everything from you? Do not be surprised when you no longer find any meaning to your life.’ The meaning of life is never given by the world below, by matter. It is given by the world above – by spirit, by the spark, the fire, the light that witnesses to the presence of the Divinity in us, just as an altar witnesses to its presence in a shrine. So, make place for God within you, not half-heartedly, but completely. By having a strong sense of his presence, you will find how rich and full of meaning your life becomes.
