Drawn to encounter

Well, here you are baby girl here you are baby boy newly born with us into humanity’s messed up journey.
Now oh young one, be it known to you that this life you’ve received for free, you’ll have to earn it for most of your duration on earth.
The gift of life wears off quite swiftly for most people, soon giving way to the struggle for survival.
You’ll find yourself wondering why is civilization a human jungle?
A discovery was made which shows that in the first 3 years of living we develop up to 80% of whom we’ll ever become.
At that tender age we are like a sponge; partly beneficiary, partly victim of all who come in contact with us.
As we get older we become executor of what we’ve sponged in!
Alerted by the implications of such a discovery, let's take the time to find in us the child, this child, the one whom only God knows better than we each do.
Let's tune in our whole attention and notice how complex is the process of our own becoming.
See how far away we get to grow away from who we really are, because of all the ignorance and indifference we are born into.
The snare of doubts, fears and confusion drives us on to naturally be rebellious to the Creator and to our own good.
What we will, ends up being our very own worst enemy.
This is because you see, this life we are given from mom and dad, well, it is short-circuited by a living death.
This power is in you and it’s in me and that is why each of us must get on the quest that leads on to the path of deliverance.
To be released from this living death is the only experience that provides each human with the opportunity to penetrate the state of freedom.
The dimension of our being in which the living death dwells and radiates from is the spiritual dimension, inside each of us, throughout our whole existing and being.
To find the path of deliverance, one must be honestly sincere and sincerely honest, always accepting the facts for what they are.
For instance, no matter how much we understand the need for love, we just can’t seem able to apply it where it is needed most of the time? What is the solution?
So as we go on asking such questions for which there seems to be no answers, our thirst and hunger grow. We begin to have an idea of what we want but we don’t know what we need.
Our search goes on inthrough our self and is driven by a deep sense that life ought to be much more than what we’ve been limited to know thus far.
This deep sense is a definite sign that we are on the path of deliverance.
There comes a time when, to be penetrated by and to penetrate the state of freedom, will alone satisfy the thirst and hunger.
We eventually become aware that a mysterious attraction is drawing me/us, bringing us an aroma of what to be free could taste like.
Someone who knows us better than we know ourself is calling. One, we realize, who can outkill the living death.
The point of Encounter is when we are made aware in a very mysterious, personal and unexpected way, that without Him, we are prisoner of the living death.
As we quest, He finds us personally in the deepest intimacy and He waits and accepts our invitation to the very core of our being, bringing us to a new nature; one free, eternal and divine nature.
To meet Him generates the impulse that settles and quenches all human need, be it for love, truth, justice, peace or for any higher state of living than what the living death offers us under the disguise of deceived perceptions of free will.
That deep sense that life ought to be way more, happens because of His absence from our inner core. That living death is in each human from conception on; so the calling is to come on the path of deliverance, in the divine reconciliation given as He reveals Himself and penetrate inthrough our spirit by His Spirit and provide us with all that we need to be made whole.
The seed of eternal life grows our welcome as the Church of Jesus-Christ, built well beyond all the blinding and deafening walls erected in His name. Welcome!!!…
