How do you think the divine and humanity really work together? Is it a ladder? Is it a hierarchy? Or is it a relationship? What is unconditional love from the Father? What does that really mean?
We live in a society that is addicted to the ladder. Our entire world is based on ladders and so the thought of a God actually sharing any of his divinity with us actually causes people to recoil. It sounds nice, and we sing it in church, but when you get right down to it the questions are still there and we all still find confusion. What the world says is loud, and even religious texts get confusing. Yet, Christ said that we would do even more amazing things than He. God said there is a spark of Him in each of us, and Christ said He lives in each of us. What does that really mean?
How did the trinity mean to include us, and why are we, lowly humans, in a position that even the Angels of the most High envy?
I wonder if instead of a ladder or a triangle the Trinity is more like a pie or a circle. This circle consisted of the Father, Son and Spirit. The three were full, and equal, and in perfect relationship, but they wanted even more of all that was Good, and to share the good they enjoy with more. And so the Son, in order to create gave up full divinity, and became man and divinity leaving a space. A space that one-day we may fill, one day when all is forgiven, and all tears are wiped away. Then and maybe then we will all be in perfect relationship with each other and with the Father, the Spirit and the Creator, the one who gave that we too might enjoy!
Happy Loving and Sitting!
