As I was reviewing a lesson about archangel Gabriel this past Sunday, I came across the expression “this is the calling of the hour.”
I didn’t quite understand it and, to push the curiosity nail a little deeper, encountered a few minutes later the expression “the challenge of the hour.” (Therefore, to obey Christ becomes the challenge of the hour—to find the Person of that Christ, to find the Way and the Teachings.)
And I still didn’t get it!
I asked for some explanation to a friend of mine and while her answer brought some clarification, it still didn’t brighten my lantern much.
What an interesting phenomenon!
Which makes me wonder AND wander!
What comes to mind when you read ‘the challenge of the hour’?
And to what extent does it refer to the Light we carry high and bright, as alluded to last week in Matthew’s 5:13-16?
How do we maintain our light ‘high and bright’ in the face of obstacles and disappointments?
This would be my ‘avenue of exploration’ this week and, who knows, an answer might descend by the time we hold our communion this Thursday!
Here is the context of the expression I found in archangel Gabriel’s lesson:
“You are a conscious being with the potential to realize God, and you have the free will to do so.
Archangel Gabriel says that to maintain the spirit of joy you have to learn how to hold onto the light—because your light is your joy and your joy is your light.
He says, “To determine to hold light, to have light, to be light, to know the light, and to be the servant of the light even while becoming the master of that light, this is the calling of the hour.”
How do you do this? Protect the light you have garnered by not misusing it in wrong thoughts, attitudes and deeds. Protect the light in the base-of-the-spine chakra and in all of your chakras.”
