Imagined to Real

‘The glory of Christ has no weight while ever it is only present in your imagination and your mind; but when it reaches your will, the true weight of glory pours into your soul. The solid weight and gravity of God’s glory is activated by obedience.’

(George MacDonald, The Hope of The Gospel, Sunrise Books, 1989)

Flowering In The Light

 

Flowering In The Light

‘Free will is an attraction to truth the way a flower is attracted to light.’* The more you bend your free will towards the darkness (of your lower self) the more the flower wilts and the less free will you have—hence the frustration, the desperation and sameness when we choose the dark of self-will at all costs.

*quote taken from Jean Vanier in his you-tube talk on ‘Big Questions'

Shopping Mall Mercenaries: Magicians and Applied Scientists

 “ for the wise men of old the cardinal problem had been how to conform the soul to reality and the solution had been knowledge, self-discipline and virtue. For magic and applied science alike the problem is how to subdue reality to the wishes of men: the solution is a technique; and both—in the practice of this technique—are ready to do things previously regarded as disgusting and impious—such as digging up and mutilating the dead.”4

Pandemonium

This morning as I was eating brekky I found another great insight from CH Dodd.

'The devils in Pandemonium, “Reasoned high,
Of providence, foreknowledge, will and fate;
Fixed fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute;
And found no end in wandering mazes lost.”5

'It is doubtful whether the human intellect has been more successful in solving the problems. Yet discuss we must ... Augustine and Calvin after him had this profound intuition of the electing grace of God, but they both, and especially the latter, made the mistake of erecting upon it a rigid dogmatic system, and thereby laid snares for the feet of believers. The best commentators upon this passage are not the theologians but the greater hymn writers of the church. We shall read it best, not with an eye to logical implications and philosophical problems, but with a mind receptive of the tremendous affirmation that our salvation is rooted in the depths of God.'6
