“Salvation’s song can certainly be heard in the idea we practice for today. If it can but be you you crucify, you did not hurt the world, and need not fear its vengeance and pursuit. Nor need you hide in terror from the deadly fear of God projection hides behind. The thing you dread the most is your salvation. You are strong, and it is strength you want. And you are free, and glad of freedom. You have sought to be both weak and bound, because you feared your strength and freedom. Yet salvation lies in them.”
I had two examples of different forms of the same thing—interactions with my brothers and sisters. One was warm, relaxed, and even humorous. The other was tense, anxious, even a bit angry. Both, I begin to understand, came from my own thoughts projected outward. During the second encounter, I was able to realize what I was doing, and though the interaction still seemed conflicted, at least I was willing to see it differently than I had at first. Good lessons!
