Scripture reference: Job Chapters 38-41
If you’ve been reading this blog since October 2019, you notice I’ve changed some things about it. One major change is my referring to the “Wild Divine Creative Erotic.” Now I know folk out there may be scratching their heads wondering what does it all mean. Well friends, I will break it down for you.
My Scriptural text is Job Chapters 38-41 where God sets Job straight after Job and his buddies give their two cents on God. God breaks down His/Her creative and powerful majesty that shuts everyone in the place up. God gives Job a tour of His/Her power in all of Nature and in the galaxy. It’s a demonstration of God’s Wild, Divine, Creative, Erotic power. where God shows His/Her stuff. Read the text, it’s very cool!
Back to our topic, here’s what Wild Divine Creative Erotic means:
Wild: If anyone ever spent time in Nature, or studied the Universe, they will see God’s Wildness in action. From hurricanes, and wild horses, to gas giants and black holes we see God’s Wildness. In all of us is God’s Wildness, both the Wild Man and Wild Woman. I embrace that Wildness in my life and celebrate it. I will be wild in my life, not time to be sedate and “cordial”. Don’t worry, I know how to act at meetings and formal affairs. However, I am wild and free!
Divine: It’s Godliness in action in my life. It’s like Jesus, who said that he and the Father (or Mother) are one. It’s my connection to the Divine. It’s Love where I self-sacrifice for those who don’t deserve it and/or appreciate it. It’s forgiveness to those who may never apologize for what they did. It’s reaching out to the “other” with mercy and compassion. It’s calling for justice-be it legal or environmental. It’s living prophetically as a voice for the Divine to my world-even through this blog. It’s being mystical in my oneness with God and having that transcendent relationship that inspires awe and wonder.
Creative: God created us to be creative; and in creativity we emulate God. Like Job, I’m “full of words (and images)” that must be released. It’s birthing things to bless my world with. It’s a post on this blog. It’s creating photographic images. It’s bringing forth new ideas and concepts that challenge the status quo. It’s bringing things to life, just like God does every nanosecond. To create is to live, for it’s an expression of life. It’s also an expression of love.
Erotic: It’s the ardor and passion of life. Yes, it’s the sexual energy that flows though this Universe. It’s the Spiritual energy that give life and energizes everything. It’s that “vibe” that goes throughout all things. It’s the Divine Music that all of Creation dances to. It’s that energy that flows in me to live, not just exist. It’s my being in touch with the greater Life and All. It’s being linked up with everything. It’s living in the Divine Flow.
For some, this may be heretical. However, I’ve always welcomed and embraced heretics since they make us think. Plus, heretics make us uncomfortable which can be good. Also, this is the best I can describe me. I find that some things can’t be described in word; they must be lived. I hope to impart these parts of me into this blog. You can also look at past blogs from the “What I Believe” series.
This is a life that’s a work in progress. All of us in the Boardinghouse of Faith are a work in progress. I hope this will give you a glimpse into who I am and what I hold to. I also look to grow in this Wild Divine Creative Erotic spirit and be what God created me to be. Stay tuned!
You be blessed my friends! Peace!
