Hello CAMPBELLSWORLD VISITORS!!!

I can get behind this method, and message.

I encourage yall to try the suggested meditations, and read the suggested scriptures.

Sometimes you manufacture scenarios and put them in your own way just to prove a point. It is as if you would rather be right than happy. When you catch yourself doing that stop and say, “This unpleasant thought is unnecessary.” Then choose one that feels better. – Abraham

The Quest:  A Journey of Spiritual Rediscovery          by Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla

MORE INTERPRETATIONS

Let’s do another story.  This one is not as complex.  It’s the incident of Jesus’ visit to his home town.  Read Matthew 13:53-58.  Read it as a story.  Don’t try to analyze it.  Do this now.

Relax, sit quietly, and think about the story.  Allow yourself to entertain any thoughts which pop into your mind.  Don’t ignore your instincts as to the meaning of the story.

Look at the scriptural passages again, making a list of the factors and characters contained in it.  Then write what each one represents in you.

Hint:  Most people, when they first start interpreting metaphysically, make the mistake of letting the different characters represent things in general.  For instance, in the David and Goliath story, they might say David represents a spiritually attuned person or the Philistines represent negative people.  But this is not the way to do it.  Each character and element in the story has to represent something in you.  That’s why we say the Bible is so personal.  It speaks to you.  David is your spiritual nature.  The Philistines are your doubting, pessimistic thoughts. Clearer?

HOW DID YOU DO?

Did you feel the home town represents your past, all the things which brought you to where you are now?  Is it the part of you which believes you to be a certain way?

What about the character of Jesus?  He usually represents your Christ self.  Maybe you thought of Him here as “my Christ self which must rise up in the midst of this mess and claim my divine nature.”  The taunting townsfolk might symbolize your old self – your old way, your old thoughts about yourself – returning to confront you and challenge your new spiritual growth.

Let’s do one more together.  This time we’ll go to the Old Testament.  Read Genesis 11:1-9, the allegory of the Tower of Babel.

Go over the story again in your mind and then make a list of the elements.  After each one, write what it represents to you.

Interpretation next week.

Follow us weekly as we go exploring on The Quest. More hints along the path of spiritual rediscovery will be revealed each week.
