Mad as a Hatter

“When ye are prepared for a thing, the opportunity to use it presents itself.”
Edgar Cayce

If you’ve read my book or followed my blog, you will know that I’ve seen some astounding things.  I’ve travelled to some amazing places.  I’ve witnessed things that many people would consider miraculous.  Nothing prepared me for the day that Jesus showed up in front of me.  It happened in March 2012.

Edgar Cayce prophesized that Jesus would begin to appear on the planet.  Certainly, I’ve talked with others who have seen him.  However, I didn’t think I was seeking him.  In fact, I believed that I walked a rather different path than the man who became the Christ.  Until now, most of my guidance has come from Buddha and a few other beings.  Once, a deceased neighbour showed up to offer assistance.  Now, however, I have come to realize that Buddha and Jesus walk a similar path.  I speak in the present tense because they are both here.  If they are with me, believe me when I tell you, they are with you.  I’ve not yet encountered Mohamed, but I suspect he walks a similar path.

Christ explained to me that he speaks to us through our hearts.  His message was urgent.  Walk in faith.  Think in faith.  Act in faith.  God hears your heart, not your head.  Come from a place of love.  Your heart is a portal to the divine.  On the other side of your heart, you will find Jesus, and the pathway to God.

“If the world is sane, then Jesus is mad as a hatter and the Last Supper is the Mad Tea Party.  The world says, Mind your own business, and Jesus says, there is no such thing as your own business.  The world says, Follow the wisest course and be a success, and Jesus says, Follow me and be crucified.  The world says, Drive carefully – the life you save may be your own – and Jesus says, Whoever would save his life will lose it and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.  The world says, Law and order, and Jesus says, Love.  The world says, Get and Jesus says, Give.  In terms of the world’s sanity, Jesus would be considered ‘a little out of it,’ and anybody who thinks he or she can follow Jesus without being a little ‘out of it’ as well is labouring less under a cross than under a delusion.”  Frederick Buechner, Listening to Your Life
