The life that I could still live, I should live, and the thoughts that I could still think, I should think.
C. G. Jung (Source: The Red Book)
I have been thinking, praying, mulling over this quote. I am on the verge of making some major changes and I am in need of God’s hand and wisdom to guide and provide. But I keep asking myself, “why am I so afraid to leap when all these years God has been there, constant and faithful?” But still, I am afraid of making the wrong choices. And could they possibly be wrong if all I hunger for is God’s love, glory and my needs (not wants) being met? Is that too much to desire?
I hunger for more of God, for being a blessing, for being blessed. I know that as long as I still have breath in my lungs that I can reach long and hard for the divine destiny to which I know I am called.
If I am <still> then I shall see the face of God reflected back to me in the world that surrounds me. The famous Psalm, “be still and know that I am God” actually says in the original language, “stop being at war…and know that I am God.” If I am still, and wait with hopeful expectancy, then God and all that is God comes to me, the wars end and Life blossoms, opening up before me, fragrant and free.
As Jung, said, the life I still could live, as long as I jump into it headlong with God, it is possible and I should indeed live it. For in living out my destiny, I will by default assist others in claiming theirs.
So, the life you still could live, you should…live.
