All things I think I see reflect ideas.
This is salvation’s keynote: What I see reflects a process in my mind, which starts with my idea of what I want. From there, the mind makes up an image of the thing the mind desires, judges valuable, and therefore seeks to find. These images are then projected outward, looked upon, esteemed as real and guarded as one’s own. From insane wishes comes an insane world. From judgement comes a world condemned. And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world come forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him, and find the way to Heaven and to God.
Our Father, Your ideas reflect the truth, and mine apart from Yours but make up dreams. Let me behold what only Yours reflect, for Yours and Yours alone establish truth.
I struggled long and hard with making a decision today, because I was aware that whatever I decided would result in one person being severely disappointed, and in fact in one case could lead to a minor financial loss to myself. The deliberations took up a lot of my creative space, and even after I’d made the decision I found it difficult to get back into the zone, as I was dealing with the practical implications of the decision. Consequently I only wrote 1000 words today, and the last 100 just before going to bed. It’s a shame because I’m really enjoying this story, and it’s unlikely I’ll be writing tomorrow as I’m going to Manchester.
I saw a client today, and helped her to understand the driving motive for the characters in the screen play. It made me realise how much I’ve actually learned, and how my prior knowledge of psychology can be put to another use. She said she’d learned more from me than from the tutors on her MA in Creative writing. Could there be a new career opening here?
