Living Spiritual Rhythms - July 24

Appropriate trust is like a virus that infects us with courage when it comes to reversing an inappropriate fear of self-deception about belief.

Spreading through our hearts, minds, emotions, imaginations, and senses, we begin to be able to understand that appropriate trust pertains to who we are, who God is, and what kind of world we live in. Life is far more than a perception of the material world, yet not less. These notions of selfhood and connection are therefore valuable to what’s comprehensible. Reflect on our capacity to be here and there, in story, geography, and dream, as we emerge from and move beyond ourselves. Imagination is a key that can contribute to unlocking access to a possible world, edging us past the seen to the unseen, so that we become trekkers into the transcendent.
