This morning a title of a forwarded email popped out at me:
Raise Your Consciousness!
It's a great idea, but, huh? How do we do that? How do we consciously do that, as if we raise our consciousness by our will? I just can't believe that it is something we go out and do.
I desire to raise my consciousness with all my heart. It's natural, isn't it, to want more and more and to rise high and reach the Sun?
Certainly, there are things to engage in that we consider better to engage in than other things.
I believe in Heavenletters™. They bring us closer to God. I can call out with all my heart: "Come closer to God! Come read Heavenletters! Come be inspired!"
There are many good ways out there for us to take a step closer to God. Certainly, there are unlimited ways that we can invite higher consciousness. Good, we invite to us what resonates with us. We go for it.
Yet I can't believe that we stamp ourselves with a higher consciousness.
Do we do it, or does God?
It's very possible that our desire for greater closeness to God tips the scale in our favor. At the same time, it seems that our consciousness rises long before we know anything about consciousness.
It seems to me that I have read a story or two about someone who lead a fast life. We might even call him a reprobate. And then, it appears suddenly that he is a totally changed invididual, now totally devoted to God.
Isn't God the Doer?
I didn't know I felt so strongly about this.
