Finding the impossible … possible

.

.

What would my world look like if I saw everyone as whole, complete, the finished article I never realised I/you could ever be?

What if I and you saw you and I as the bible describes how Jesus saw you and I?

It’s about seeing things from a heavenly worldview, where we’re seated in Christ right now, where there is no sickness or injury.
”We are the ones needing bending”, In My Father’s House

It’s my day for others’ words connecting with thoughts I never knew were in my head.

Mel’s post uses The Matrix to illustrate it thus:
Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Do not try and bend the spoon.  There is no spoon.  Then you’ll see.

Then you’ll see.

How often do I see the problem, the issue, the illness, the exterior, the weakness, the liability – the thing to be fixed – in you or me?   I see “the thing” and not you or me.  The “thing” is you or me.  I don’t see the elephant in the room.  I don’t see you and I don’t see me.  Not as whole, complete, the finished article I never realised I/you could ever be.  I see none of that so instead I try and fix the room.  Try and fix a thing.  An object.  Which is not you or me at all.

Do not try and bend the spoon.  There is no spoon.  Then you’ll see.

If instead of seeing a “thing” I saw you or me as Jesus sees me or you … as whole, complete, the finished article I never realised I/you could ever be … never even saw “the thing” but only you and me as whole, complete, the finished article I never realised I/you could ever be … what would my world look like then?

What would you look like to me, what would would I look like to you.

Perhaps then I could love you without condition and you the same.  Perhaps we could live in the moment devoid of all the invisible baggage we drag with us.  Perhaps we could find the impossible … possible.  Not the showman-superhero-superbeing-miracle-worker-star-of-the-show we try so hard to be: the fixer extraordinaire of “things” and “stuff”.

Our biblically-correct interpretation we think biblically-correct.

I wonder if it is all so much simpler, more basic, less heroic, less star-studded.  I wonder if all we need to do is to stop seeing “things” and start seeing you and start seeing me.  I wonder if we lived in the moment whether all the “fluff” would fall away.  All the invisible baggage we never realise we carry.  The stuff of things and fixing and superheroes.

I don’t see Jesus as a superhero.  I don’t see Jesus as a fixer.  I don’t see Jesus as a superhero.  I see him as whole, complete, the finished article I never realised I/you could ever be.  And he sees me the same way.

Maybe it’s that simple.
