By the wondrous old age of 90 both my parents have seen enough of life to know that it unfolds according to its own agenda. Having been through a zillion shatterings and upliftings, they quietly confess that nothing much turned out the way they thought it would or wished it might. They like to say that everything in Life happens of its own accord.
To say “of its own accord” is another way of saying “by Grace” – and we can’t understand either the cosmic laws that orchestrate “happenings” or the dynamic of “Grace.” But we can have fun with concepts, while keeping the difference between concept and Reality in view.
My concept of Grace: active, dynamic, non-local information/intelligence. Primal Power.
My concept of Life: unborn, unmoving, immeasurable Primal Potential.
Without Grace, Life remains impotent.
Visual concept: Life’s omniscient and omnipresent Potential sit at the two corners of a triangle’s baseline, and Grace – omnipotence – forms the apex, transforming the connecting lines into form and unleashing creative energy.
When I show this bunch of concepts to the aged wise ones, they simply smile and make a cup of tea.
