FINDING A FACE IN THE CROWD NOT AN EASY TASK

His Face Invisible But Present On Each Of USOh Lord!

Your face present on every being,

In the multitude.

But so difficult

To recognize You,

On anyone’s face.

How many faces we see daily, regardless of the mask most wear outside, their own natural mask on these days of pandemics?

To live in your presence day, by day, minute by minute, and You escaping our gaze, possible the most challenging of endeavors it’s to recognize You, not in one, but on the many.

Blinded by your  own diversity, we struggle to find you even in one person, how much difficult it’s to find you on every face, and everything.

The VeilBefore the official tabernacle was built, “Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the ‘tent of meeting.’ Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp” (Exodus 33:7). As Moses visited this tent of meeting to intercede for the people of Israel, “the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses” (verse 9). Moses’ position of favor with God is evident in the fact that “the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend”

Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence… but,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”

Moses On Sacred Space

And yet to recognize God on every face it’s our task, not an easy one, Jesus disciples where astonished by his words:

35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

As in fact most of us do not recognize Him.

But some of us take care of business, even behind a mask.

Spiderman Visiting The Sick

To be Human, and being alive, we always have the chance to run into Him, because he is everywhere, and sometimes in need, let’s not waste the opportunities, that come our way…Specially on these days full with trials.

There is many different ways to be of service, even if you are not a person of Faith, you are still human and capable like everyone, of kindness, and love, choose a way, or path,  that it’s becoming to you.

  1. This is a lovely reflection. 🙂

    To be kind, without expecting anything in return, is good for your Kharma.

  3. I very much hope, Mr. Brogido, that this period will make us wiser and make us more thankful for the gifts we receive every day without doing anything! Many thanks and all the best Martina

  4. This is the first writing I read today morning. This beautiful reflection already made my day. Thank you, my friend.

  5. Thank for this timely reflection, Mr Anaya. Artificial uniformity (wearing masks) is even worse than natural conformity – both negate the unique autonomous being within. Every dark cloud has a silver lining though, and without some darkness we don’t always appreciate what we have got when it’s light …
    Best wishes, Jean-Jacques

      The darkness of the night precedes the dawn, ad the darkness return, and overtake the light of the day, it’s the Cosmic dance of the Universe, and Existence.
      Thank you for your comment, Jean-Jacques, best wishes to you also. 😊

    Seeing God’s face in everyone is the tough Nd tricky part, isn’t it. 🤔

    • theburningheart says:

      You can say that, Ramana Maharshi one of the great Sages of India in our time, and a others in the past, used to say the characteristic proof of total Enlightenment, was the ability to see the Face of God in every face, and on everything else.

      Thank you Pam for your comment, we appreciate it. Blessings. 😊💖

    It’s always been very reassuring, the idea that if you can touch one person or reach one person or make someone laugh or carry one person’s groceries that you’ve done something important, no matter how small, and it matters more than one might think. 🙂

    • theburningheart says:

      Your absolutely right, on that one, sometimes I have being surprised, as how some people remember a small gesture, and remind you years later, of how grateful they were for it, even when sometimes, it’s even hard for me to remember, I did say a kind word, or a small act for them. 🙂

    Algunos podrían pensar que no hay razón para ser amables con alguien a quien no conocen. O no desean gastar ‘energías’ esforzándose en mostrar algo de amabilidad ante personas que no son cercanas o significativas en sus vidas. Lo cierto es que ser amables mediante sencillos actos de cortesía y educación, no cuesta mucho y, en cambio, puede traernos muchos beneficios.
    Leerte es una gran experiencia para poder reflexionar en acciones que se nos pasa por alto. Un gran abrazo y una excelente semana para ti.

      • macalder02 says:

        Esa es la parte que estamos olvidando últimamente porque esta pandemia nos hace más egoísta. Un buen artículo que nos lleva a una reflexión de vida. Un gran abrazo y buen fin de semana.

      • theburningheart says:

        Gracias Manuel Angel por tu comentario, el egoismo es algo por lo que siempre el ser humano tiene que estar luchando, basicamente es no reconocer la cara de Dios entre nuestros semejantes.
        Un abrazo, poeta!😊

    Finding a Face in the Crowd is beautiful — I love the way it all comes together. Would you mind if I reblog this, some people don’t like their post reblogged so I’m asking before I leap. Thanks.

    I am not a believer.In fact, I am an agnostic. However I think that the soul that expresses itself with kindness, compassion and empathy represent the deep and spiritual meaning of life. take care my friend 🌹

  12. You really said it correctly that especially when we are in trouble or go during bad times, it is extremely difficult to recognize Him.
    It would be great that humans were human to others, at least that much. Everything else is a bonus and big help. For instance, all these shootings and stabbings, as if it’s not enough with pandemic.
    It would be good we learned this message early and never forgot that God is everywhere and with everybody.

    • theburningheart says:

      Life it’s a stage where the actors forget it’s all a play, like in a theater, and lost perspective of it. And therefore can’t recognize the face of the other.
      And the reason life seems like what you make up of it, mostly a messy place, where war, violence, or indifference it’s the rule, rather, than caring, and love.
      It’s up to us what we want in our life, and act accordingly.

      Thank you for your comment, Inese, and you are right: “God is everywhere and with everybody.”😊

  13. “the most challenging of endeavors it’s to recognize You, not in one, but on the many.” Perhaps, someday we’ll get there and even be able to recognize the divinity of nonhumans who share this planet with us.

    • theburningheart says:

      We certainly hope so, and sure it’s not only people, but animals, plants, rocks, and whatever else, on the multi Universes.
      Thank you for your comment, we appreciate it. 😊

  14. This is a lovely reflection. 💖👍
