I often hear people use the phrase “a sense of things”. A person might ask, “Do you get a sense of what I am trying to say?”, or “Do you get a sense of what’s happening?” Today, I want to think about what this word “sense” means, and I want to consider what my “sense of things” is. When we say “sense of things”, we mean the way we see the world, the way we interpret what’s happening. After all, the same situation can be interpreted in different ways by different people. A rainy day can cause a farmer in a drought area to celebrate, while a family that has planned a picnic will be miserable. The farmer and the family have a different sense of things. They look at the same reality, but see it (interpret) entirely differently. I want to have a spiritual sense of things today. I want to see the world as it truly is – an unceasing unfoldment in the present moment of the ideas of the infinite Spirit, Mind, God.
