Part 1: The Power of Magnificence
The Power of Magnificence is beyond measure.
In terms of spirituality, Magnificence is the highest goal we can attain. That means complete union with the Highest Power. Self realization. God realization. The ultimate achievement of many incarnations as humans, gradually evolving with learned life lessons, becoming stronger, meeting challenges and eventually offering ourselves totally to the will of the Universe. Creator and Creation become one.
A lofty goal. But more valuable than any other.
What is the price? Is it more than we are willing to pay?
Joshua pondered these thoughts as he walked along the river near his home one late summer afternoon. The goldenrod were now in bloom and they brightened the already fading grasses along the shoreline. Fall was coming and he had already seen some leaves turning red in the maples.
“What is life?” he asked himself. “What is it all about?”
He had just left a good relationship after 25 years to find out what he really wanted. To make a break and seek his soul. He felt he had to do it alone. Rebekah was a good partner, but he needed to find this path himself. She would only hold him back.
It wasn’t like they had a bad marriage. It had been wonderful. But there was always something lacking. He had been seeking fulfilment all his life and never quite finding it. There had been small satisfactions along the way, but they only lasted awhile, then he was left with an unquenchable thirst for something more.
