The way we see SPIRIT / God or Source is very personal and varies in the way we perceive the world around us.
Yesterday I suggested some things to consider which rendered some wonderful responses. For some God is something outside of ourselves – an all knowing benevolent being; or perhaps a being that doesn’t appear to respond to various beseeching and request. For others God is Goddess and part of the earth upon which we walk. And still others see God as a being within.
There are as many perspective and beliefs as there are great minds to think upon it. Martin Buber offered his perspective of God being more of an “I-Thou” relationship, or a personal relationship between the individual and how the individual perceived the “Holy-Other”. Immanuel Kant in part conjectured that the idea of reason and experience limits the minds ability to an empirical realm of space and time.
The journey to how you discover or find God / SPIRIT is yours. It is personal. It is important.
I began my search for God years ago, and at some points thought I had found him, at other points I questioned based on the experiences I had in my life. At two times in my life I threw my hands up and said, “I give up!” One time I asked God to prove his existence and I was treated to the vision of the light and the dark. It would be years later before the second request. In short, I drew from the Bible and requested that God manifest himself as a burning bush in my living room. I had quite a few plants to pick from – but alas nothing. I giggle now to think of one of my house plants suddenly dawning flames just to suit my request for a sign from God that he existed. At the time though I was serious and adamant about an answer.
Although the answer did not happen straight away, it did happen. That night I went to bed in my two bedroom apartment on the second floor. It was in the country and I was use to a peaceful quiet. Without warning I became aware that there was someone in the apartment and sat bold upright in bed with my heart racing. Feeling a sense of urgency to see who the intruder was I struggled to get my feet to the floor. The sheet from the bed seemed to entangle my every effort to get free. At last with a huge effort to pull free the loose fitted sheet, I tossed it over my shoulder and slowly peered out my bedroom doorway toward the living room. It took me a moment to become clear on what the light was at the end of the hall. I expected to see a flashlight held by a person, instead what I saw was a small blue light with a white middle about the size of a softball. The bluish light began to expand and the center began to take shape and form. At first all I could make out were two eyes and the bridge of a nose inside. Then I did a double take, and reset my focus. The center was becoming more and more clear – it was a face. And the more I looked the more I began to recognize what was being revealed to me. It was my own face.
The rest of the story will be presented tomorrow. See you then.
Take in a deep breath. Exhale. State out-loud: “I am a unique Divine Aspect of the Creator Source of All, I am loved, I Celebrate myself, I am beautiful, magnificent, and joyful right now, in this moment. I embrace my new and growing relationship with SPIRIT. And so it is.”
