Ultimately, I believe this is about our path to God, a path that is both universal and particular. Universal in a very general way of understanding. For example, those of you reading this most likely have some idea of what I’m talking about. Particular, in that we each need to find our own language to express it. Here are a few of mine: being with God, resting in God, at-one-ment (atonement).
I am still wrestling with this, particularly because I am sadly aware that some people never find their bliss, never get settled, but instead remain in a state of anxiety, discontentment and depression about their life. Can that be part of God’s way? Or is it just the luck of the draw? Or…?
