Right now I am trying to figure out why my laptop batter isn’t charging. I began to think, sometimes that is the way that I feel. When I’m on retreat, engrossed in a great spiritual book or speaking with a friend (or reading your great blogs), I feel all ‘charged up’ and ready to go. Yup, it all makes sense, I know it and I can feel it…the question then becomes, can I live it?
When I am unplugged from these helps, does my spiritual battery maintain enough charge to keep me functioning? When the fear sets in, when the anxiety and worry appear, when the anger starts to build, how much ‘charge’ is in my battery?
I’ll solve the problem with my laptop and I’ll be grateful for the ‘connection’ made with my very own ‘spiritual battery’, and hopefully we will both be able to ‘hold the charge’.
I think you’re right on several levels. Sometimes we lose our charge and have to re-connect with whatever area is lacking … Kind of a way of feeding the soul, or the mind, or the laptop too. I guess we always need that source of sustenance, that energy-boost, in many ways.
Yes, I agree and sometimes we are the charge for each other. Thanks Joanne.
I think we are all in this race together… some days are more in tune and connected than others, but always the desire to be more!
So true Sonja, just like the sun that shines bright one day and hides behind the clouds the next.
I am reminded that my laptop does not always charge if the connection is not tight. I often have to remove the line from the computer, check for dust or whatever other interference might be there and make sure that the connection is secure when I plug back in… what metaphors! Thanks for helping me to see this often frustrating moment in a new light.
That’s great Fran, time to check for dust…in many places.
The Bible is a quick charger for run-down batteries.
So right Victor, it’s so good to have you back.
Great thoughts Andie. Love what Victor said also.
Thanks Bernadine, sounds like your recent post.
“Hold the charge!” I like that a lot!
Thanks Glenda…now to only do it…..
