HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL- Aug. 16, 2016-SOLITUDE
Compiled by Mercy Junction Pastor Brian Merritt
All human beings have three lives: public, private, and secret. — Gabriel Garcia Marquez
We are only as sick as our secrets. This is something I have been told over and over again. The only problem is that sometimes our secrets are hidden from us as well. We have pushed them down, filed them and denied access for them into our consciousness.
Solitude that incorporates an act of meditation may help unlock some of these hidden doors. I have heard meditation described as being receptive to hearing the divine. Maybe the divine is trying to tell us those things that will help us become whole.
Today’s Action: Spend 5 minutes in meditation.
Sharing: How do you feel when you are told a secret. Does it excite you, give you anxiety, dread. We would love to hear how you feel.
