A mystical perspective: The nature of the Divine is one of paradox. Prayers are never answered as we thought they would be. What is up is really down. What is big is really small. What looks safe is really the risky path. What looks dull is really Divine gold. When you make a choice out of fear, you rarely find safety. When you think you deserve a reward, you get nothing at all. When you aren’t looking for a reward, you are given more than you could ever imagine. When will we ever learn to trust the paradoxical nature of the Divine?
This class will examine:
- Perspectives on paradox;
- Is there a Promised Land or just a Paradoxical one?
- Light dwelling in darkness; darkness emerging from Light;
- Forgiveness – the greatest paradox;
- Seeing your life through paradox and blessings.
