“If you were to continue your reading, you would find many examples of the very odd, disturbing, and inexplicable signs that reveal The New. Why? Because each must discover for themselves, take the journey into the realm beyond what has been known, encountering the unknown in intimacy.” Mirari
The tone of these words, believed to be from Mary of Nazareth, are comforting and enticing. Who does not want to take a journey into something better, which The New promises?
We also want intimacy with our God, our brothers and sisters, our own soul. Intimacy invites God’s Love, and we are comforted in intimacy as in little else.
We have to take our journey alone, though we do have lots of helpers, seen and unseen. Each of us, at base, is alone with our God. This does not have to be disturbing, because God’s support is always and forever present–even when we are in a dark night of the soul and don’t feel anything from Him.
Ask to take the right steps on our journey, the guided steps. When we walk a straight pathway back to God, we make a decision to follow His guidance.
And then our journey takes us Home quickly, to a Heaven on earth indeed.
