Form and Flow

UV 1770/10000 Form and Flow
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul
Genesis 2 v 7

God formed man of the dust. Our form is derived by God from dust of the earth. God breathed into our nostrils. Our flow is derived directly from God. Our flow is from an infinite source. Our flow and not our forms determines we are living souls. We are created in the image of God on account of God breathing part of His being or our souls into us. Since man stopped relying on his spiritual link with God, we were reduced to a choice of fight or flight. But when we are connected to Him through Jesus, the flow is restored. Though our bodies or forms belong to the earth, our spirits or flow belongs to heaven and we long for our heavenly home. When man first disbelieved the word of God and believed the word of the serpent, he became a dying soul. He became led by the serpent implying that he lost his flow or innocence. He developed duplicity and could neither trust nor be trusted. Jesus became the Word incarnate and got people to trust God again. He enables us to be servant leaders again.
A serpent leader speaks one thing and believes and does quite another thing contrary to what he or she believes or speaks. A servant leader by contrast is a follower of Jesus. He obeys and trusts the Word. A servant leader lives fully and abundantly. He gives priority to the flow over the form. A servant leader connects with the Lord as the source of his breath, his life, his strength, his hope. A servant leader does everything to serve the Lord and not to severe his ties with God.

As long as we breathe in our bodies, we need to connect with the source of our lives. We cannot practice the presenc e of God but we can practice whatever we learnt by the grace of God in His presence. The Holy Spirit constantly overshadows us and dwells in us. We feed on the living Word and become living souls again. Death, fear of death, negativity and evil no longer rule over us. The O-zone or His omnipotence, His omnipresence and His omniscience fill us and covers us. As we are revived as living souls, rivers of life giving water , of hope, joy and love flow from our hearts and minds towards our Creator as also to our fellow creatures and humankind.

  1. Serpent Leader Satan is the demagogue vs servant leader Jesus who is our pedagogue - jasper

  2. God formed man out of dust. Perhaps Jesus was drawing a parallel to His creator ability when he spat on the ground and then applied the dust to the blind man's eyes to give sight to the blind man.
