“Can that which is finite encompass that which is infinite?”….”Can that which is little contain that which is big?” “No” I said. “But it can,” he replied. “It can if it’s an open vessel. A closed vessel can never contain anything larger than its own size. But an open vessel has no limitations. It can contain the blowing of the wind or the outpouring of the rain. It could even contain the flowing of a river.” It would take a long time to contain a river.” “It could take forever, but the principle is the same.” And the reason you are showing me this…”Which is larger, that what you know or that what you don’t know?” “That which I don’t know, I would think.” “So then, it’s only wise to seek that which you don’t know.” “I guess.”…..”But how do you contain that which is bigger than you…. that which is bigger than your ability to comprehend?” “By becoming an open vessel,” I said. ….”Yes,” said the teacher….”Only by opening yourself up can you come to know that what you don’t already know. And only by becoming an open vessel can you contain that which is greater than yourself. The truth is always greater than our knowing. Your mind and heart are finite, clay jars. But the truth has no end. God has no end. The Eternal is infinite…. always flowing.” “Like the river I said,” “Yes,” he said, ” but when the jar opens itself up it becomes unlimited. It can contain the waters of the river…So open now your mind, your heart, and your life. For it is only the open vessel and an open heart that can contain the Infinity of God.” Isaiah 55:1-9… Jeremiah 33:3….2 Corinthians 4:7
Comments: The above words make me think of the scripture: “Flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of heaven”…. at the second coming when Believers are changed in a moment… in the twinkling of an eye…. you will be in your new everlasting spiritual body…. what a day to look forward to…Today we should try to open our minds, our hearts, and our lives, to that which we don’t yet know, that we might contain that which is greater than ourselves.
