A fruitless fishing expedition gets turned around and yields great catch when Jesus told the weary, unsuccessful and disappointed fisherman to go back and cast their net in deeper water.
Jesus has the same prescription to seekers of spiritual fish but had largely remained unsuccessful, disappointed and tired.
Fish in deeper spiritual water.
The Heaven in the Mind
Many people from various religious orientations and groups can be so obsessed with the heaven that is yet to come that they miss the wonderful heaven that is available now. They are obsessed with the heaven up there in and beyond the clouds, the heaven that is in the next life, the one that comes after the so-called “end of time” that is available to those who ask, seek, and knock in the heart and the mind; the heaven as it is, despite the world and in spite of what it is filled with. Hindi ito isang imagined heaven, but a heaven that God wants us to enjoy here and now: the heaven in the mind.
