I thought this was cute. Why not look good for Jesus?
Seems that it would be part of any comprehensive and integral approach 😉
And it is always interesting to explore where I find the genuine truth in this, for myself. Where do I find the genuine truth in looking good for Jesus?
For me, it has to do with inviting guests.
Any content of awareness is a guest, so if we take a visit by Jesus to happen within content of awareness, we can invite it in.
We can do certain (second person) practices, find receptivity of the three centers, and more. We can invite Jesus in as alive presence in its many forms such just alive presence, or its aspect of luminosity, or infinite love, or wisdom, or the fiery heart quality I find when I do Christian practices, or for others, maybe as a vision or a voice, or something else. Or just the good old taste of an open heart at our human level.
And if we take Jesus, or Christ, or the combination, to be a noticing of what we are (that which experiences happens within, to and as), then that is also something that can be invited in. We can prepare the situation, as best as we can. And that guest may come as well, or not.
So by inviting in Jesus as any or all of these guests, we want to look our best. We want to look good for Jesus, inviting him in for a visit.
Of course, Jesus, as anything else, lives his own life, on his own schedule. And that is also part of the game.
