Nothing To Do With You

Every once in a while you whole world appears to collapse in on itself. The ground disappears from beneath that beautiful meandering river that you were flowing along and suddenly you are free-falling ¬†down a thundering waterfall, flailing about trying to grab a hold of something solid, something definite…

Did life as you know it just end? Did your plans, dreams, goals just crash on the rocks below or get washed away whist you were still falling?

In a universe this vast, its impossible to be unaffected by external events, other people and their actions, even if the connection isn’t locally recognisable like say a war creating global financial instability which in turn affects the amount of retail spending and a recession hits which causes you to be made redundant… the war has nothing to do with you, does it? You may not have made the connection but it’s affects have caused the bottom to drop out of your world… now that’s just an example. Let’s say that your particular river has been flowing towards merging with another river but somewhere out in the world more than one tributary stream influences the flow of that river and causes it to divert and damn up…

Those tributaries have nothing to do with you but now your world and your flow is affected…

So the bottom dropped out of your world and you’re in freefall… the most significant mechanic of The Wholly Grail is that you cannot keep the Grail. Life will not allow you to become complacent or take it for granted, it’s the detours that keep the journey interesting and indeed keep it moving forward. So you hoped that the goal would be in sight by now but the truth is that God never lost sight of it in the first place… He’s testing your survival skills at this point and attempting to synchronize the rate of flow in each of the rivers, it’s your job to remember that God is your dingy and when you hit the bottom of the falls all you have to do is climb back in and you’ll be floating on your way again.

Keep returning to the true Source of your Grail and no part of your adventure will be in vain.

More later… x
