I’ve been preaching up a storm lately. It’s an old favorite sermon of mine, all about the limitless possibility in front of you: “Fulfillment, people! Reach for fulfillment!”
This summer, it seems like a fire has been lit under my ass about this. I think it’s because the current political intensity, climate intensity, and overall globally intense energy is creating an opportunity for some deeper levels of self-awareness.
The basic premise of my sermon is like that old adage about how God can only give you the very best, but you won’t ever accept that, so you never get what you want.
What I want to crack open here is why you won’t accept the best god/life/source has to offer.
Why don’t we accept the best?
First, I want to invite you to recall a situation where you were making a choice between an couple of possibilities.
Option #1: Definitely a dream come true—almost unimaginably awesome.
Option #2: was more familiar, a little more accessible—a little easier to handle.
And you choose option #2.
For my recollection, I have to go back to college. I had a very genuine guy ask me out. Well, we started hanging out and kinda fell into dating, sort of… College days, right? He was sweet, kind, handsome, very talented and smart, had his shit relatively together… basically, he was pure sunshine.
