Jesus came "in the fullness of time."
We all do.
In all of us "the time is fulfilled."
In all of us "the kingdom of God is at hand."
Every moment is the moment of transfiguration.
The moment of realization/enlightenment/illumination/revelation...

This is the Eternal Now of our being/becoming
aware of and present to
the time that is at hand.

We are never more than one slight
perspective shift away
from knowing it is so,
the time of our own unveiling,
the time of our own "triumphant entry"
into the world of time and space--
doing/being at one with the Tao,
with ourselves,
with all that is and is to be,
in a "the oak is in the acorn"
kind of way.

Then what?
Then we do what needs to be done,
when, where and how it needs to be done
in each situation as it arises,
no matter what
for as long as life shall last.

And then, we leap into the light,
and do it all again
in a different time and place,
in each situation as it arises,
as long as life shall last...

Do not forget the leaping into the light part.
That is the most important step
in the entire journey.
That's where it all begins.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
