Fred Craddock said, “The message of the Messiah is, ‘There is no Messiah!’”
The Messiah is NOT the Messiah!
Our life is our responsibility.
We have to find our life and live it,
with none to help or point the way.
Well, not quite.
We have all the help we need to find the way–
IF we will but attend it!
IF we will but open ourselves to it!
IF we will but learn its language,
and spend the time necessary
on a regular basis
All the help we need
is as close as a heartbeat,
as near as our next breath.
There is a catch.
We have to give up our way
in order to be guided to The Way.
We have to hand over our quest
for the life we have in mind for ourselves
in order to live the life our Self has in mind for us.
It is a dilemma as old as the ages
from whence we come.
All are called,
but few have what it takes to heed the directions
and find the way
to the life that is theirs to live
in sync with the heart of life and being.
The Messiah is born anew in each generation
if there are those there prepared
to live the life
The life that was theirs to live
before they were born.
