A Lenten Pilgrimage: Uttering The Unutterable

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. The very words I speak to you are spirit and they are life.

Oftentimes I fall over my words as I feel like a child learning to talk again.

We struggle in our faltering attempts to say what cannot be said. Our words fail us in the presence of God, as we fall to our knees in worship.

Three Floors of Consciousness

Picture if you would, your brain like a house with three stories.

On which level would you live?

We move from our first-floor survival brain into the intuitive logic and language of our second-floor brain. But as we move into our third-floor brain, our words fail us. It might feel as though the floor might evaporate into the vastness of eternity. Presence, Being, light and life flowing, dwelling center to center, wholeness, love, joy, and peace are the language of our spirit.

For Jesus says: “the words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life.”  ~ Selah

What floor are you living on? What floor are you thinking from?
