A mind turned towards God
In a mind turned towards God, all conditions are favorable.
We do not know what we are, or where we are. And perhaps it is the very wish to understand that, itself, that stands between us and understanding.
The dilemma within this is that the mind turned towards God has to be turned towards God in a way that is not of the mind.
We do not wish to think of God, but rather to live within God.
We think, therefore we are not.
Living is not thinking. Living is living. If we begin to experience living as inhabitation of where we are, rather than thinking about what we are, things become less complicated.
And I am really quite certain that we make everything much more complicated than it actually is. An effort to simplify and to be more immediate can only serve us well in our effort to turn ourselves towards God.
May your roots find water, and your leaves know sun.
