Sin Defined as Missing the Mark
Wow! Look at this definition of sin that popped on Wikipedia: “thought or action that endangers the ideal relationship between and individual and God.” Additionally, a Greek concordance defines “to sin”is to “miss the mark.” What a delightful linguistic find; how well it merges with Abraham’s discussion of one’s individual alignment with Source.
Sin of Complacency
This morning, it became clear that I am a sinner. I sin by my smug complacency. I sin by resting on the self-satisfied conviction that my thought environment was basically “right.” In my fatuousness stance, I am 180 degrees out of alignment.
I am missing the mark in terms of my internal environment. My thoughts must change. My feeling must change. I must rebuild, repaint, refresh, revise, refine, refurbish my entire internal environment.
How do I know that? It’s so easy. I merely pay attention to what I am seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching around me and I have a faithful image of where I stand with my thoughts and feelings.
The Avenue of Desire
I am happy with much in my environment, but I passionately desire so much more; I desire the tenth power of what I have now. For today, I am happy with what I have. At the same time, I am happy with the desire for more.
The sin lies in Not wanting more. It is missing the mark Not to want more. Wanting more requires releasing resistance and opening more to the energy and voice of the Universe.
