Cart Before Horse, Etc.

Most of us live our lives in a quest for some kind of wholeness. So we bumble along trying to chase down ‘success,’ status, experiences or stuff; We may seek a ‘higher plane of consciousness,’ more rational understanding, a better theological system. Whatever the category, our quest usually ends up being about the kind of ‘more’ that’s never enough.

The good news that either nobody’s bothered to tell us or that we’ve rejected is that we can be ALREADY whole because God ALREADY loves us…and how more whole can there be than that?

Accepting his love frees us to live life according to who we ALREADY are. Our lives become no longer a quest FOR wholeness, but an expression OF wholeness. It’s simply a matter of getting the horse in front of the cart.

And now you know the theme of my present manuscript.
