I was thinking about becoming a witch!
I’d spent lots of new age time in meditation, which was always interesting. My child self, my female self (an elegant little witch), my male self (in full dress tartans and busby) were always doing something new and I used to meet with them in a cellar room. They were my board of directors.
The cellar room was pleasant. My lovely kitchen table occupied pride of place. The hands of the grandfather clock could move days backwards and forwards. The filing cabinet filed history and I could enter its pages.
But my meditations had taken a new turn these days. I had decided to walk in the Garden of Eden, hoping to meet with God. If I had this opportunity, I would wear no figleaf. If God had something to say to me I would not try to cover up, but listen to Him and stand corrected if need be!
Somewhere along the line I invited Jesus to preside over my board meeting at the head of my table in the cellar! Indeed He came in, and took the proffered presidential chair. But He said nothing and looked down. My female self and my male self remained motionless at the door. My child self played under the table. Sometimes she went and sat on His knee, and He played gently with her, not looking up. This was most unusual and I waited for something to happen. However, my child self was the only active person in the cellar!
This continued for some time, and then Jesus got up and left the room. He walked out the door and into a lovely garden that I had not noticed before. The path took Him down beside a little river in the sunlight.
I said to myself, “If He is going out, then I am going too.” I was not letting Him get away. So I left that room, and all that reside in there, for ever, and began again to follow Jesus. It is remarkable, the lengths to which He will go, to retrieve one of his prodigal daughters, even after twenty-five years!
