I found this message on my voice mail - wish I'd picked up..
When I said separate the sheep from the goats, I meant for milking.
When I said let there be light, I meant wisdom; let there be wisdom.
When I said to Abraham to sacrifice his son to me, I meant for him to let the child discover me on his own.
When I helped the Israelites escape from Egypt, it was to free them from oppression, not to give them land to fight over.
When I said to Adam to name the animals, I meant pay attention, manage wisely, live in harmony. I didn’t mean bring them to extinction.
I gave mankind a brain for thinking, reasoning, learning and problem solving. I meant for people to learn, think, reason and solve problems. I didn’t intend for you to spend a lifetime trying to figure out what I want. I can take care of myself. I don’t need people to be treating me like some kind of dictator or tyrant. Nurture, live in community, love the earth, and develop wisdom.
Take your time. Listen to each other. Work together. Where you are, I will be, always.
