Metanoia - to embrace thoughts beyond ones present limitations or thought patterns

Just a ramble really, but written twice using different words

I don't know if this is going to work but I am going to say something about missing the mark in life (sin) changing one's mind, in the sense of embracing thoughts beyond its present limitations or thought patterns (repentance). I'll use phrases like missing the mark or just don't get it for sin, and I'll use the original Greek word meta (change) and thought (noia) - the word is metanoia. I'll use that because it;'s shorter, just like I used nutritarian for an abbreviation of a nutritionally dense plant based diet. Okay? I hope that does not offend anyone. Well it shouldn't, it's my blog! Anyway when I am done I'll replace the words with sin and repent, just to see what it looks like. If I am right it will seem crazy :) Here goes -


A ramble...
VERSION 1 (The New Mouseclick Version.

I have had quite a few metanoias lately, the frequency seems to be increasing. I usually get them early in the morning at 5am when I wake up, most times I just try to think where the metanoia is leading me. I often think of a compass, when I am lost I'll use the compass to navigate, but what happens when I get to the point where I am trying to go, that is truth? How do I know I have reached it? I guess at that point where further metanoia is not possible, or rather not necessary. I just can't imagine it. And what about the journey itself? Usually it involves trying to make course corrections, or navigating round objects, carefully trying to work out the correct course of action and not doing the wrong thing by learning from past mistakes. I guess when I reached that point the compass would spin freely, as it would at the North Pole, my compass would stop working because I am there, I have reached the point. Maybe that is the point at which I have made it, I don't have any more mistakes to make, I am there. Maybe there will be a threshold that I can step through or cross, when I reach that point. I am without the need to try and navigate anymore. It would be like standing on the North Pole looking around, able to see the world from the ultimate perspective.

On another note I woke up pleased because I helped someone the other day, I did something daring recently that others may not have done and I met that person who then trusted me. They were making mistakes and asked me for advice but I wasn't sure if I could help them. But they confided in me, and I could see they needed help, so I pulled myself together and put some thought into it. After I couldn't quite get the picture, I had a stab at something, and hit the mark right on with them. "Bulls eye" was the sort of expression they used to confirm my speculation. I helped that person have a metanoia, and now they are completely different. Well I hope so anyway. I will find out eventually. Now they have to make a journey, so to speak, I just hope it goes well for them. But hey, that person is an adult, I am sure they will make it. Twas good to be thanked for being truthful. I'll do a mental "wish them well" (prayer) for them. Hmmm, have to look up prayer sometime

Life reminds me of a riddle, we have to make loads of mistakes to get somewhere, it reminds me of Mavericks avatar "life is one big fat riddle - go figure!" But most of us don't so we? We make the same mistakes just like these pigs do http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1004983#i
we make the mistakes day after day after day simply because we do not look for anything different. And there are others who do want change desperately but can't find the direction to go in, they are lost somewhere. Life may seem unfair, but I think those with the most difficult journeys can have the greatest rewards.






VERSION 2 (King James Version)

I have had quite a few repentances lately, the frequency seems to be increasing. I usually get them early in the morning at 5am when I wake up, most times I just try to think where the repentance is leading me. I often think of a compass, when I am sinning, I'll use the compass to navigate, but what happens when I get to the point where I am trying to go, that is truth? How do I know I have reached it? I guess at that point where further repentance is not possible, or rather not necessary. I just can't imagine it. And what about the journey itself? Usually it involves trying to make course corrections, or navigating round objects, carefully trying to work out the correct course of action and not sinning thing by learning from past sins. I guess when I reached that point the compass would spin freely, as it would at the North Pole, my compass would stop working because I am there, I have reached the point. I am without sin. Maybe that is the point at which I have made it, I don't have any more sins to commit, I am there. Maybe there will be a threshold that I can step through or cross, when I reach that point. It would be like standing on the North Pole looking around, able to see the world from the ultimate perspective.

On another note I woke up pleased because I helped someone the other day, I did something daring recently that others may not have done and I met that person who then trusted me. That person was a sinner and asked me for advice but I wasn't sure if I could help them. But they confided in me, and I could see they needed help, so I pulled myself together and put some thought into it. After I sinned myself, I had a stab at something, and stopped sinning with them. "Bulls eye" was the sort of expression they used to confirm my speculation. I helped that person repent, and now they are completely different. Well I hope so anyway. I will find out eventually. Now they have to make a journey, so to speak, I just hope it goes well for them. But hey, that person is an adult, I am sure they will make it. Twas good to be thanked for being truthful.

Life reminds me of a riddle, we have to commit lots of sins to get somewhere, it reminds me of Mavericks avatar "life is one big fat riddle - go figure!" But most of us don't so we? We commit the same sins that these pigs do http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1004983#i
we sin day after day after day simply because we do not look for repentance. And there are others who do want to repent but are lost in sin. Life may seem unfair, but I think those with the most difficult journeys can have the greatest rewards.
