The Supernatural

Just a quick note…

In many ways, the word “supernatural” is mostly used in place of “inexplicable” in the sense that it signals something from another realm of existence. Granted, in movies and other forms of fiction, it is almost invariably frightening (as in horror) or full of sentimental crap (as in Western mythology about angels, etc.). But it is most certainly not something we can learn to handle with our minds, as if all we really need is just a better grade of intelligence and reason. There is no highly advanced science to it, or alien technology as sometimes depicted.

It’s just a matter of reality playing games, mocking humans who refuse to live in their hearts. God allows us to experience just enough to give us a clue, but most Americans (and other Westerners) treat it wrong. Either they put it in a strange place where it’s remembered but “crazy,” or it’s simply discounted, ignored and left out of the calculus. A proper calculus is to reduce your view of reality to the quantum level: your perception and experience. A good term is to call it quantum reality, because it gives you room to scale it up to see things and grasp them on different levels.

Sensory data is not all there is; your heart is a sensory organ in its own right. Your heart understands things your brain cannot handle.

Only if you flee God’s mercy should you fear the supernatural. If you seek His face, there is nothing that can actually harm you. Meanwhile, it’s just as real as tying your shoes, or scratching a itch, or eating ice cream. It’s a completely natural and normal part of the continuum of reality, so that “super-natural” is a bad word, but we are stuck with it. It’s just reality inviting you to see the truth.

She is a handmaiden of God; giver her room to work. Discuss it with her and listen with your heart.
