The comments about the Second Coming in my last journal entry have caused some consternation among Christians. This was not my intention. What I was trying to say was that Christianity is an inner state as well as an outer one. I feel that literalists–and by this I do not mean all fundamentalists- -are not looking within for the kingdom, and that is where the gospel says it is found. Heaven is a condition of the living soul, which is why Christ identified it as being within us. It is easy to find our guilt and weakness. The real courage comes when we find the greatness that is within, and face the task of living up to it. How close is Christ to us? He is breathing our breath. So look for the Second Coming right now, every moment.
