Ponder TKese TK" in your Yfeart By Dennis Justison The Buddhists have a saying, "When the wise man points to the moon, all the fool sees is the finger." Religion is the finger. God is the moon. Too often we allow religion to become the moon, our god. Other people might use a different finger, but they are still looking at the moon. My finger, my religion is Catholic. It is my pointer, my vehicle to ex- perience God. Most of you are not Catholic. Your finger is different. You have a different "set of tires" to experience God. This is like three friends going to a Twins game isn't it? One person going by bus, another by car, still another might take the Metro. They all get to the game and enjoy the action on the field. But what if they spent the whole game arguing about the best way to get there? While they argued, they missed every pitch and swing of the bat. They missed the game. When we argue about religion, we miss out on life, love, and God. I am not talking about friendly debate or honest questioning and searching, but the jabs and judgment we often give the other. Ironically, we don't believe because of rational arguments or "proofs" that God exists, but because of encounters with Christ and the experi- ence of the divine. God is not an idea, nor is Christianity. To experience God and the blessings of Gospel, we must live it. ~Many have the notion that the God experience is like a day at Disney Land: Fireworks, lights, and bells alerting us to the magic dust as it set- i tles on us bringing ecstasy, peace, and joy. While this can happen, our ex- perience of God is likely to be more practical and common, like the birth i of a baby. When it happens, you might not completely understand, yet ' you know it, you know Him. He communicated something to you, some- thing of His Presence. Maybe it happens while you are sitting quietly or maybe while you are walking through a park listening to the birds sing. You are aware of something or Someone. While we do get sidetracked with rules and doctrine, the purpose of church is to make us ready to experience God. We can only experience God when we are present to the moment, to the "now." When I am not present to what is before me, I am into myself, my problem, or my agenda and I cannot love (or see God). How can I be present? How can I experience God? "Do not judge" is a great start. To judge another is a poison to the spiritual life, even when we are. cor- rect! Our spiritual senses "zoom in" on the person. It is like trying to get : a good look at someone by using a microscope focused on a tiny piece of someone's eyelid. We can't see the whole. We end up seeing only what we want to see. And Jesus warned us, didn't He, that even the Church would be a gathering of the weeds and the wheat, Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43. Your neighbor doing evil isn't proof that he is in the "wrong" church or that an- other church is bad. It means we are human. Judging others focuses on the evil and sin of a person. Having compassion teaches us how to love. And I might add, love is what heals us body and soul. The early Christians thought of the Church as a hospital for sinners. The cure was love not judgment. Why did Jesus come? Not to judge us, but to save us. How? By His love. So this Christmas as you ponder the birth of our Savior, go beyond the mind and into your heart. Go beyond the words, ideas, emotions, and judgments. Don't be a fool and look at the finger. Look at the moon. Look to Christ. Live in Him and let Him live in you. ~ Peace be with you.
