Journey to the Center of the Universe

Originally published January 6, 2008

I had a sort of revelation the other night. I was on my way to sleep and thinking God-thoughts when it suddenly occurred to me that all of those verses that encourage us to be looking outside ourselves as we build our relationship with God are there for a reason.

Consider God as the Center of the universe. In order to journey closer to the Center, I have to reach beyond and outside myself. Because I am not the center of the universe.

And it only took me 32 years to figure that one out. How long it will take me to actually make it practice? I'm hoping it will be less than another 32.

Have a blessed Epiphany Sunday.

  1. You mean we are NOT the center of the universe? well that's a shock to most of America. Excellent viewpoint - wonderfully opposite of the pop culture view of looking within oneself for truth and goodness - if I were truth and goodness inside me I wouldn't need a savior would I? We never fully put into practice what we learn but the effort is a huge blessing. Keep on striving - I believe the term is fight the good fight -looks like you are doing your share. Bless you
