If someone says…

If someone says “everything that goes around comes around”, everyone feels comfortable. If someone says “you reap what you sow”, everyone feels comfortable. But if someone says “Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord”, everyone feels uncomfortable.

If someone says “after rain there is sunshine”, everyone feels comfortable. If someone says “no matter the sorrow, there is always a better tomorrow”, everyone feels comfortable. But if someone says “when the need is greatest, God’s help is nearest to you”, everyone feels uncomfortable.

If someone thanked the manager for food, everyone is comfortable. If someone tipped the waiter/waitress, everyone is comfortable. If someone hugged the dining guests, everyone is comfortable. But, bow your head and pray for the food…and everyone is uncomfortable.

If someone says “find your inner power”, everyone is comfortable. If someone says “meditate to tap into your higher consciousness”, everyone is comfortable. If someone says “seek inner connection to the Power of God”, everyone is uncomfortable.

If a President says “God bless (insert country)”, everyone is comfortable. But if another says, “in order to receive this blessing, let us pass laws that reflect our best understanding of God’s Will”, many are uncomfortable, rebel, disagree and become antagonistic. We want the blessing, but not compliance.

Why does this happen? What exactly are we so afraid and shy of? There is an inner discomfort that arises within the human spirit today when any Divine reference is made. A unfortunate mystery. It could be, despite our supposed knowledge, we feel an absolute stranger to God and His Will. We feel distant, we feel cold, we feel removed from His Intention, we feel strangers. Despite our professed beliefs, we do not really experience the warmth, comfort, light and love in His Name because we have distanced ourselves from truly experiencing His Nature. Hence we become uncomfortable. The discomfort similar to interacting with a stranger we have no familiarity or true knowledge of. It could be this, or it could be something else.
