Finding Our Original Nature 06-30-2016

The prophet Hosea invites us into silent places where God’s presence is most palpable: “I will entice you into the desert and there I will speak to you in the depths of your heart” (Hosea 2:14, NRSV). The desert symbolizes stillness and silence. It’s free of the buzz of numerous organisms and habitation. The desert symbolizes freedom from thoughts and words.

The deserts of silence await us as they awaited Jesus, the saints, prophets, and apostles. “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Be still and peel off the layers of who you’re not, of who you thought you were. Find out what the mystic writers of The Philokalia call your “original nature,” unencumbered with images, words, thoughts, props.Your original nature is satisfied with the present moment and desires nothing that it does not already possess. Free from clothing and all artifice we can return to the Garden of Eden and walk hand in hand with God in the cool of the day (Genesis 3:8-9).
