It is as if we are
1. onions peeling layers of false self
2. also balancing a vertical (relative to us) pendulum, swinging up to the crown and down to the feet in oscillating degrees of joy and sorrow.
1. the onion peels once more, and the deeper stillness is preferable to both the joy and sorrow from the previous layer.
YET EVEN THOUGH WE ARE DEEPER NOW,
2. we must confront anew a deeper pendulum and find the equilibrium point.
SYNTHESIS: That point, where going deeper meets balancing poles is THE CHRIST VEHICLE. Or, to put it more "Christian, " Jesus Christ and love of him is a river that flows through
1. a pre-carved tunnel to follow inward,
2. the balance point between oscillating emotions and spiritual energies.
THE BIBLE TELLS IT SO:
As He says, He is the Way, The Truth, and The life. May He guide us into deeper peace and more Glorious Depths!
