Psychologists generally agree that change initially brings regression. We all want a new car, new dress, new job, new this and that, but please, don’t ask me to “learn” anything NEW! Don’t challenge what I now know, or think to be true, with some contrary, off the wall stuff. I’m just settling in. Sorry Charlie.
Advances in science, new psychological discoveries, social reforms, and digital refinements are both a blessing and a curse.Â New anything automatically brings discouragment as well as promise. It’s that old And-Also, paradoxical thing. Holding the tension as Richard Rohr calls it.
I believe we are on the cusp, or in the throes of a spiritual revival, transformation, mega shift, or whatever you want to call a major change. I don’t know how long it will be or how far we will have to go into it before we truly realize what’s happening. Things like this have their own life and it could take several decades or a century before historians will be able to properly describe “what’s going on” (sounds like a Motown song).
It’s going to take a collective mind (several people) to get a handle on it. I don’t see any one man sounding the trumpet. Maybe that’s why I’m trying to figure out what this “spiritual order” is that I feel the Holy Spirit started me in search of several months ago.
Every time I think I’ “onto it“, I lose it, whatever “it” is.Â
It’s like a massive jail break. Ideas and running here and there and none know where it’s all going except, we’re escaping our current prison, and that in itself is good enough for now.
