The Road to God is the Road on which we walk now  

Posted by Heisan in , , , ,

In my daily readings of my favorite Catholic inspirational writer Carlo Caretto I have come across a very good reflection that I want to share here. He mentioned in the pages the following very inspiring and simple contemplation. He said that the road to God is the Road on which we walk now.And that we should feel and see the creatures, every creature.

Why take such an interest in a dewdrop appearing on the Virgin's eyelash in a painting, yet not see all the dewdrops of a morning in spring?
Why go miles and miles to see the dubious stigmata on someone or other's hands, yet not move a step to contemplate the sore-covered hands of the poor?
Begin feeling God in creatures. See his beauty in the beauty of the sun as it rises on your human day. Hear his voice in the voice of the brother beside you, trying to communicate with you.
Waste no more time, seeking God in your own fantasies.
Once you realize how miraculous it is that a bee can find the door of its hive, you will feel that God id near you and near your silence.
Try and sing.
For the sky that you have given us, alleluia!
For the sun that you have given us, alleluia!
For the sea that you have given us, alleluia!
For the friends that you have given us, alleluia!
Yes, alleluia, even if the sky is sometimes cloudy.
Alleluia, even if the sun is sometimes scorching
Alleluia if sea is sometimes stormy
Alleluia, even if your friends do not always see eye to eye with you.
All is grace
All is God, loving me.
Gos is in all, molding me.
God is in all, making me his son.
Right indeed! For only in seeing the whole of creation in its simplicity and beauty that is hidden from the human eyes but can be seen by faith do we able to reach God not only ones but daily we experience heaven.

Thanks for this post, it was a great way for me to start the day, and it is true that in a search for miracles we do not see all the ones that exist around us day by day.

Thank you for your comment. It is true indeed that miracles do happen daily in our lives and not only in extraordinary way. We only need the eyes of faith to be able to comprehend them.
