Just an Illusion Part 2: The Dust of Our Diversity

_MG_8794

Once again, we refer back to Just an Illusion Part1  and the familiar song “Life is a Dream and Heaven is Reality” by Anointed. Considering deeper consideration of the lyrics in relation to where we place our importance; be it in reality compared to Fantasy, Illusion, Delusion, and the relationship of existence between them all.  The Bible puts it this way

 “ And now I have a word for you who brashly announce, “Today—at the latest, tomorrow—we’re off to such and such a city for the year. We’re going to start a business and make a lot of money.” You don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. You’re nothing but a wisp of fog, catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing. Instead, make it a habit to say, “If the Master wills it and we’re still alive, we’ll do this or that.” : James 4:14 The Message (MSG)

fog“A wisp of fog catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing” magnifies the reality of an eternal realm against the finite and fragile nature of this so-called natural existence. Fog is the product of widely scattered water molecules condensing . As these molecules cool to at or below ambient temperatures into droplets upon dust particles, fog or a cloud will begin to appear.  The Bible reminds us that we are but dust. Adam was made of the dust of the ground. God breathed his breath into him and he became a living soul. From that point forward we all continue to reflect God’s breath/spirit off of the dust of our diversity.

Therefore, we are  far more alike than different i.e. Imago Dei (Image of God). Agreement is the key because the more that we can come together more condensation or manifestation of God’s presence is available. However, what are the consequences of our moment in the Sun? In order to make sense of it all, we must not neglect the influence of Fantasy which reflects our desires over our God inspired purpose; God allows for both. The Illusion exists in the thought that we are so in control of our lives.

 We aren’t robots and we are very much creatures of free will but we have very little control over its consequences. There are certain time-tested formulas that work for the best outcome therefore nullifying the effects of Delusion. Delusion is where our present society finds itself because “it’s all about me” is the prevailing sentiment.

 The formula for enjoying true fulfillment and success in life is to understand that this “time caught in between” can and should connect the reality that is to come.

Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be]what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever545477_438844386189382_159500755_n you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.

 Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven.

For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I Am in the midst of them” . Matthew 18:18-20 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The harmony that is sought after is a musical term synonymous with accord. Accord1, as an organization is reaching out to all as a condensation platform for the Dust of our Diversity to become Synergy, therefore allowing life to mean so much more. Throughout the balance of 2013 we will be enlisting the power of agreement to overcome division. Make sure to read part 3 in this trilogy next week as together we  discover  harmony and fulfillment in this “Time caught in between
