The Pace of Life
There are no windows on submarines. OK, there may be windows on subs they use for tourists, but on a serious submarine, there are no windows. So, how does a sub “see”? A sub uses sonar – sounds waves that are sent out and bounce back of an objects around the sub. A well trained crew can tell from how the sound bounces back what is in front of the sub. There is just one problem with sonar – sometimes you can go too fast and the sound of the water rushing over the antennae overwhelms the subtle pings of the sound waves bounces back. You can go so fast in the sub that you literally can hear and therefore, cannot “see.”
Human beings are like that. We can go so fast in our daily living that we cannot hear the subtle pings of the Spirit and thus, we rush through our lives unable to “see” what God is doing around us. The world is demanding more and more of us in less and less time. We have to multi-task, speed-date, twitter, and instant message all while we are trying to live a life of meaning and purpose. The world has it wrong. Jesus has it right. Slow down. Push back. Escape from the constant demands of the world around you. (Jesus went into the desert for prayer). Pay attention to the sonar of your soul. It’s the only way we will be able to “see.”
