It is an automatic and predictable human experience to find ourselves in challenging conditions and ask “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?” None of us desire difficult life events—whether it is an unfulfilling job, loveless relationship, physical disease, or financial constraints—no one wants discontent! Our limited sense of self can create all kinds of suffering circumstances that create experiences of struggle that look and feel real. And yet what we affirm, is that life is FOR us. There is a divine impulse in back of all things that is always calling for our attention. Let’s call that Divine Discontent.
Holy – devotion to the service of God
God – the indwelling Presence, the life force energy in back of all things, the Infinite, Consciousness, Universe, Spirit, Divine, Life, Sacred
Disruptor – a person who breaks apart the normal course
Holy Disruptor – a person who breaks apart norms in service of the Sacred; a person consciously devoted to breaking apart the sleepy state of humanity; a person in service of bringing forward and realizing the glorious nature of the Universe.
This week’s #WednesdayWisdom comes from Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow. Michelle, a renowned legal scholar and civil rights lawyer, stepped out of law and just recently announced joining Union Theological Seminary in New York as she is clear that beyond a legal problem, we have a moral and spiritual problem.
