The story of my life is the story of my faith…

Spiritual Blindness

“When the forces that control your life won’t get out of the way and you’re ready for change, sometimes it seems as if the gods send something to screw things up on your behalf. It may not feel like its’ on your behalf, but it is. There’s always a blessing in these things. In your case, there are probably main obstacles to your being able to get going on the next part of your life’s journey. One force opposing all of is our spiritual blindness because of our comfortable culture. Air conditioning, television, music, busyness – the soul can’t break through with that much interference. In Dorothy’s case, it’s a tornado that picks up the house and throws it over the rainbow. You can’t make a tornado appear nor can you make it disappear. All you can do is hang on for the ride.”
