An Amazing Grace Question For Y’all
What is an Amazing Grace Question? That’s what I’m calling those questions that bring you to the mirror of Self my dear reader. You know? When you the lost asks a question the answer to which turns you into the found. I once was lost but I asked and now I’m found.
To that end, here’s one. Tell me what you are?
Too easy? You’re a parent? A sibling? A big time performer? A big shot gangster maybe? The boss? Butcher, baker, candlestick maker, whatever. Perhaps you think yourself to be something more, something grand and divine, radiating from over the line? Or something mystic maybe, walking gently through the shadows, trying not to cry, aching to learn to fly. A sinner maybe? Yearning to be taken to the river, for your sins to be washed away?
So many things to be. So little time, ha! What’s a body to do.
You know why that question is so difficult, my dear reader? Because you cannot answer it for yourself. Yes, in spite of what the self-help snake oil peddlers tell us, there are some things we just can’t do. And that’s one of them right there.
Jesus kept saying, “I’m a son of God. You’re a son of God. We’re all children of God.” True as it may be, what does it mean until you hear it for yourself … from the source … Itself? Not much. The dialogue may serve to motivate you but that’s about as good as it gets.
You see, all the things mentioned above– parent, sibling, gangster, guru, child of the universe, etcetera. etcetera. etcetera. are but roles we take on. Self styled and self adapted. We’re very powerful beings, that’s just a fact. Even in ego we do some amazing things. But that one question that we cannot answer for ourselves is- Who am I? What am I?
That answer you have to hear from the One. The One-Love. The One-Father. The One-Creator. The One-God. Whatever you wish to call that One. You alone must offer up your very soul and allow it to be penetrated by Love and in that instant Love will whisper the eternal answer into your eternal soul. And then you’ll know, and then you’ll walk toward the light of freedom.
So ask. Ask with all your heart and LOVE WILL ANSWER.
