“A Divine Pattern is hidden in everything” – Ernest Holmes
Dr. Kenn Gordon spiritual leader of Centers for Spiritual Living used the term spiritual lightning rod in a ministerial class I attended this weekend. He shared – we become spiritual lightning rods by setting intentions to either solve or serve an issue. I see this for myself as that state of awareness – of moving beyond the conversational stage of the revolution of the problem – and into the consciousness of the state of the revelation of resolution. This is the shift from the intellectual revolution of the problem, to the intuitive spark of revelation, to the Divine Passion of resolution – of fire from heaven.
“True imagination is not fanciful daydreaming; it is fire from heaven” – Ernest
Holmes. This occurs as we release the issue at hand from the realm of our intellectual thinking – into the welcoming awareness of the spark of intuitive guidance – which becomes the flame of insightful Divine Presence of a Knowing beyond Knowing. This Divine Presence of Knowing beyond Knowing – occurs in the realm of one’s imagining, which leads to one’s vision.
Einstein stated “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Dr Kenn Gordon has stated “A vision is outside of our belief that it can be possible or true.” Emerson wrote “ “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.” Through the ability to imagine and vision something bigger than oneself – by living in True Self – one surpasses the foolish consistencies of little minds – and by daring greatly lives fully.
Brene Brown in her book Daring Greatly relates Nothing has transformed my life more than realizing that it’s a waste of time to evaluate my worthiness by weighing the reaction of the people in the stands. The people who love me and will be there regardless of the outcome are within arm’s reach. Dr. Kathy Hearn asks us to ask these questions: Where do we stand in the world? Where do we stand in our self. What do we stand for?
As we ask the questions we come to find where we have been standing, where we are standing, and come to imagine and vision where we would like to be standing. As we let go of standing in what wasn’t working, we come into a presence of standing in what is working, and open to a future based upon the imagination and vision of of a world that works for everyone. We become as Dr. Kenn Gordon relates, spiritual lightning rods – by which we connect to what Ernest Holmes calls – fire from heaven .
Today’s Prayer – “I am a spiritual lightning rod attracting fire from heaven.”
