Taking time out to invert the noisy plexus that is the average human life, a ‘study tour’ of the self is embarked on. What found us here is the irrefutable revelation of God—no matter how self-conceived it seems.
The very idea to take stock of what’s never been previously enquired of is at first strange, yet soothing, as the Lord makes known the precious vestiges of the soul’s fabric on many things.
Suddenly our minds are enlivened in a world beyond the world.
We track the light fantastic as it reveals itself on our insight. Our spirits are quickened to the reality of eternal life—even as resides, taking its shape, in our mortal beings.
Suddenly, fresh thought is hastened and we realise how fragile, yet somehow real, life happens to be. Then we venture further inward to the quest we began with; an honest starting point, prepared to tackle anything required. We want to know ourselves.
A glimpse of eternal life is the adroit knowledge of ourselves in the sight of God. A study tour of our souls gets us closer there.
