How much seed does God distribute? God distributes abundantly! The Parable of the Sower is about God’s great abundant giving (Lk 8:4-15). So much seed is used. Are we responsive? Do we receive it? What can I do today differently to bear more fruit? Questions that a mystic asks!
Being a mystic has little to do with intelligence, willpower, or perfection. It has everything to do with honesty, humility, willingness, and surrender. When we surrender to our loving God, we are being mystics. We can all do this. Our loving God awaits us!
Some days are just meant for gratitude. Yesterday, My family went to visit my wife’s aunt who is 89 years old. She was so grateful. She is feeble now. She wore a smile the whole time. She thanked us over and over for coming to see her. All she could give us was her gratitude- but it was more than enough. Mystics give others their gratitude. And, on some days it is all we have to give. This a lesson that Aunt Mary reminded me of yesterday.
