Who's your daddy?

"He called God his Father, making himself equal to God."

Yeah, he did something a lot crazier than that. Check this out: "I am going to my Father and your Father... when you pray say, 'Our Father...' " Can you believe that? He's calling God our Father, making us equal with God. In fact this is what life is all about. John of the Cross says we're called to be "gods by participation." All the church fathers talk about man's "deification," his becoming like God. I mean, if you had to say what the meaning of your life is, what would you say? (Seriously, answer this question before reading on...) I'm not kidding. Think about it before you read any further, ok? Thank you. You did do it right? I sure hope so. If you did think about it right away, congratulations for being someone who puts the word into practice!

I don't think "God" is the first answer that comes to mind, but check out what my good buddy Wittgenstein says, "The meaning of life, we could call that God. To pray is to think about the meaning of life." And it's true, what we think about, we become, right? What are you thinking about all day? Is it God? Is it taxes, and money, and kids' clothes, and crazy co-workers, and getting cut off in traffic, and... I bet the list goes on for a while doesn't it? That's why it's so important every day to shut all that out and come back to the point of it all: G-O-D. Our Father. That's the goal. Every day. Not that other stuff, becoming little gods walking around the earth, spreading life and love to all who find themselves in our wake. Let's go for it. Today. Every day. Right now. Whatever it takes.

God bless,
Live from your heart,
