HIDE vs SEEK

In the movie Avatar, “I See You” is a greeting. The Na’vi have two versions of the verb see: tse’a, which pertains to physical vision. kame, which means to see in a spiritual sense. It is more closely a synonym of “understand” or “comprehend.” “To see” is a cornerstone of Na’vi philosophy.

REFLECTION: In the following examples, I challenge you to consider the following while reading… Do you feel invisible? Are there gifts you know you possess that the closest to you take for granted? Is this happening in your work, home or home town? How about your mirror? Is it YOU who does not see?

I was woken by the dog from a fairly involved dream early this morning… I’ll focus on two portions of it rather than the whole thing (mainly because I haven’t had enough time or coffee to really understand what my subconscious was expressing or if it was an actual dream walk).

  • There was one image in the dream where my oldest brother was standing in front of me and looking back towards my home. I was about three feet in front of him trying to get his attention but he was looking straight through me… My eldest brother is the only male in my life that acted as my protector without abusing me. What he taught was always by example. To be invisible to him in the dream was very distressing (as sometimes in life I still yearn for acknowledgement that who I am is OK), so I went for a drive (in the dream) which led me to the next image that I am sharing.
  • 100s? of people walking into a church that I was driving by, all were carrying sand colored umbrellas even though it was sunny and warm outside. All were light and visible (typically in my dreams when many people are gathered only a few can be seen clearly, most are in shadow). There were so many that my spirit was carried out of my vehicle and into the church where they were going. Inside, even though I felt as if I had someplace to be, God told me to sit amongst these people and pay attention to the video that was being presented. Once that was finished, I struggled to get the important message received from what I had just watched back to my family even though I knew they wouldn’t believe my story.

What I got from it is this, my message isn’t being heard by those closest to me.

Have you ever felt invisible to or unheard by those who mean the world to you?

The Nazareth Syndrome is

  • doubt or disbelief because of a negative association with the information source or more specifically
  • when you think you know Jesus but you don’t.

After spending forty days and forty nights in the wilderness, Jesus returned to Nazareth to commence his ministry. Nazareth was his home town, where Jesus had grown up, and where he had run the carpenter shop after the death of his father.

The people of Nazareth had grown up with Jesus, so they thought they knew him. After all, they had seen him grow up and they knew his mother and his brothers. But they didn’t know Jesus at all. What follows next is shocking. They tried to kill him.

We were all created for a reason, are you hiding? Time to seek that purpose that is uniquely you.
