We have to know where we stand, what we stand for and what we stand against. And everybody else has to know it as well. Some Christians like to say "God isn't a Democrat or a Republican." Who would God vote for is the question. Who would God have you vote for is the other question. Does it matter to God what happens, is the other question. Do we know where God stands is the other question. Do we know what God is good for is the other question... So many questions. Where do we stand is the fundamental question. Everything falls into place around that. Even God. Clarity brings the truth to light, and to life. Clarity is another word for enlightenment. For realization. For knowing. Where we stand is essential knowing. Not knowing where we stand is also essential knowing. Looking for where we stand is the life-long search. And mirrors are everywhere. We are mirrored by everything we do and say. Who we are and where we stand is obvious to those with eyes to see. What we say and how we say it and what we don't say, tells anyone who is interested who we are and where we stand. What we do and don't do, where we spend our time, what we read, how much we watch TV... Mirrors. If we don't know where we stand, what we stand for, all we have to do is look in the mirror. The right mirror. They are everywhere.
