How Thick Is The Surface

Posted by Steve Nyhof on 11 June 2011

I have been thinking about the surface of things, how thick it is, and if there is thickness, what is it's value.

Water for some reason comes to mind - the surface of the water. How about a tar road, a glass window or even a blade of grass or paper? If these things have a surface, how thick is it?

As a new world is slowly being revealed to me; learning about my roots, patterns and behaviors - to help me make sense of the puzzle of my life and how God fits into it, I have been separating my behaviors from the eternal essence of who I really am. There is my body, and there is my soul. A type of surface and then essence if you will - two parts.

A seed gives way to a root, the starting point of an existence, which grows up and out of the ground and quickly forms branches and leaves, and in many cases, fruit. But during the life of the tree, the roots remain, and in fact grow larger and more seated. More rooted as we say some times to things.
