When a word comes in the spirit, it comes with impact. Like this word, ‘pattern’. For a layman it may seem an ordinary word. For a professional it is not. If someone says, I don’t have a pattern, I just do free flow, the really creative artist will laugh. An artist is known by his or her pattern (Pablo Picasso had his picture drawing pattern. Robert Frost had his poetry writing pattern). Writers, doctors, lawyers, sportsmen, musicians, preachers, politicians, leaders, teachers, everyone with a profession too. Every man has a pattern in life. The world is made up of patterns. The ocean has pattern. Every navigator knows this. No one would dare venture into an unknown zone not knowing its pattern.
In daily life, you need pattern to love, to work, to study, to relax, to socialize, to relate, to connect, to communicate…
In making a dress you need pattern too. The pattern may not be written or drawn. You can have in your heart, memory, or vision. When you boil rice you need to know a cup of rice needs how many cups of water. The really good cooks have a rich storage of secret recipes in their mind,
The travelers like to look at patterns. The photographers like to capture of moments of patterns they see on their cameras. The writers take note of patterns and put them in words. The journalists report patterns. Patterns do not confine to hardware. Software too has patterns. Even moods and feelings and attitudes and perspectives have patterns.
every blogger has chosen a pattern for himself or herself. Whilst reading this blog, you read a pattern. What am I getting at? What is my point? My point (as a spiritual mindman) is as follow:
The spiritual realm has a pattern too. In fact the spiritual pattern governs the physical pattern we see with our physical eyes or detect with our five senses. What we see is often a copy or reflection of the unseen.
Here are some verses for meditation and prayers. Note the link between heaven (unseen) and earth (seen). Both exist and are real. But human need faith to see the unseen.
Hebrews 11:1-3 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.
3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
2 Corinthians 4:18 [Full Chapter] while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
