“Let us observe together how the delights of God’s heart embellish not only the soul, but the whole world. To make them present in the world is to bring Heaven to Earth.” COL bk.2, 15:III
Sometimes we get so caught up in our own neuroses that we forget that there is a whole world out there needing our help. This, with the coronavirus, is such a difficult time for just about everybody. But God is still God, and His way is joyful. If we listen to the promptings, the quiet promptings, of our heart, we will know the truth of a joy that never ends.
If we seek to embody God’s joy, we will necessarily be a good force in this world. And the world is crying out for understanding and comfort now. Let us let go of our own hang-ups and instead walk the happier path, metaphorically holding God’s hand, remembering His delights.
God is not responsible for the bad things that happen in our world. Our mindset has fallen, even as our free will has remained constant. And God does not interfere with free will. That is an axion never broken.
If we open our hearts to a never-ending love, we will understand what these “delights of God’s heart” really are. And, as the quotation says, not only will our own soul be embellished, but also the whole world.
The world needs us now. Let us reach out and heal, first ourselves, and then our circle in this world, and then, beyond that, to the much larger community.
We can do this. It just takes the proper mindset.
And with have within our power the means to uplift our mindset.
