An immersion in chaos.
When I look around my house and consider how hard I try and how "wrong' everything still is, I wonder.....how does anything work in the world? I have been meditating lately on the immersive quality of life. Life is an immersion. We are placed into an environment full of the good, the bad and the ugly. Babies have an innate ability to navigate this environment. They just seem to know how to do it. It's only as adults, after developing stodgy habits and ideas, that we can begin to forget. We develop behaviors that are incompatible with life. We want to control an environment that cannot be entirely controlled. Life has its own agenda.
We'll never discover the Authentic Life if we don't understand the nature of life. We'll never survive the coming days if we are not able to accept....to embrace....chaos. We will navigate through much chaos. And as the Body of Christ, the Remnant, we can do no less than accept this task with complete joy. It is what we are given. Just as Noah navigated the tumultuous deluge...it is all for a purpose. And it is all good.
