The Dormant Christian – Play The Tune!


DNA strand with codeAlthough each of us is born of DNA, snippets of our parent’s tendencies and that red liquid coursing through our veins, we also create our environment with our thoughts, ideas and reactions that collectively comprise our experiences, personality and the essence of our individuality and being.  Hidden in the depths of our sub-conscious, lie our fears, joys, loves and regrets, along with the complete set of our core values and beliefs.

Many of these “tucked away” emotions and navigational guideposts steer us on a day to day basis, yet we remain somewhat unaware of their subconscious influence upon our lives.  And so it is with food, dress, relationships; and faith.  And although the strongest of these morally magnetic influences is faith, as humans, we overwhelmingly have the shield-of-faithmost difficult time expressing, even sharing our museum of faith that is ordered and stored in our minds much like books in a library.

Yes, the magic of life itself remains hidden within our minds, along with everything that defines who we are, what we believe and why we behave, think and make decisions the way we do.  Many times it is safety and security that convinces us to refrain from sharing our selves with others, while at other times it can be ego, pride and self-expression that pushes us to let others know equally defining aspects of ourselves.

“As music is encrypted upon a CD or stored on the hard drive within our computer, it is conspicuously silent and unknown unless played and shared with others.  In essence, it does not exist unless it is shared.  And in a parallel fashion, our faith, beliefs and Christianity remain largely unknown and non-existent, unless we make a concerted and deliberate effort to communicate and share them with others; through our words, through our Actions, and as witnessed by our lives”.

It is human nature to judge others by their looks, words, body language and behaviors, along with how they interact and relate to others.  This tendency to judge is a largely, mutually occurring phenomenon, i.e., it is happening all the time and all around, and to us.  It is as breathing; an involuntary response to ensure our survival.

And so it seems, in this day and age of global strife, we are being coerced into “survival mode” by external forces.  Accordingly, we are being awakened to a degree by that little voice inside us that is screaming to protect ourselves, to protect others and to raise the veil of our faith, exposing it for the world to see, by our actions.

And make no mistake, “In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity” (Albert Einstein).  Indeed, it is incumbent upon each of us to not only acknowledge our values, beliefs and faith, but moreover, to have the courage and character to defend them when under scrutiny or worse, attack.  Take the risk, remain focused and Play the Tune, people, albeit at times a bittersweet symphony, lest we wither away into non-existence.
