Saint Matthew, Apostle and evangelist

Word for today
The Gospel of Matthew 9:9-13

Resonance

Every cell in our body moves constantly and vibrates producing a well determined, dynamic, measurable frequency. To say it simply, every cell sings and plays. And the same is true for everything that surrounds us, for everything that exists. When two energetic entities tranfer information and energy to one other through their vibrations and tend to attract one other, that is defined as resonance. Frequencies obviously tend to attract the same kind of frequencies, to resonate and create a sort of communion of unity. Using our interior dialogue to produce rancorous thoughts, which vibrate on lower frequencies, will obviously tend to attract and to resonate with similar frequencies of the same profile.  Using our interior dialogue to produce loving thoughts, which vibrate on higher frequencies, will obviously tend to attract and to resonate with similar frequencies of the same profile. The wellbeing of an individual depends entrely on the kind and quality of the frequencies that person generates and with which he/she resonates.  Go and learn the meaning of the words, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. Jesus invites us to create with our thoughts and to inhabit with our hearts the frequencies of love and mercy and not those of duty and ritual sacrifices.
But why is so difficult for men to learn to use such an elementary law that brings wellbeing? Why is learning to always use the frequencies of mercy and forgiveness so difficult for us? The answer is in the abyss of possession and in the whirlpool of the attachments in which we have fallen. Far from God and from ourselves, we feel so miserable and empty that as soon as a reality somehow pleases and satisfies us, it has to be ours, and when we own it, or we think we own it, there is nothing in the world or even just the thought that makes us more angry and insane than losing it. Possession and attachments make us completely identify ourselves with things, with people we care about, work, fame, image, reputation. That is why then, in most of our common everyday communications we so often use the possessive adjective my.  My land, my life, my mother, my husband, my brother, my music, my God, my Church, my name, my future, as if all this in some way belongs to us, as if these were our property forever.
The spiritual style of mercy that Jesus invites us to consider as the brightest most vital frequency foresees the exact opposite. Having mercy, forgiving, is nothing more than letting go, letting go with love. Having mercy and forgiving a transgression does not mean pretending it did not happen; it does not mean justifying or excusing, but lovingly letting go that which has already been taken away from us. Entering into the frequency of mercy does not mean being subjected or resigned but lovingly, with a smile on our face, letting go of what has already being taken away from us.
This merciful spiritual attitude has a very important benefit: it makes our lives and ourselves resonate with the frequency of God's heart, or rather, as the bible says, with the guts of God's mercy. And there is no safer, more peaceful, kinder, more protected, more joyful or brighter place than in the guts of God's mercy.
