In Reference to: 5 August 2012 - Am I Walking With God?
Thank you. Frank,
The childlike qualities: innocence; curiosity; sincerity; questioning, (love of animals!). I guess it’s humility, in its true sense, (including self-esteem as GOD’s ‘creatures’), which allows us to seek THE TRUTH.
Your beautiful sermon, especially on sincerely calling out to GOD, prompted me to want to share the thoughts which came when, some time ago, I asked, “GOD, Please tell me Who/what YOU ARE, as I like to think and speak on spiritual things, and need to know that I am thinking of what IS YOUR TRUTH.
So, humbly, because these are somewhat unusual thoughts:
“I AM YOU, AND EVERYBODY ELSE: YOU ARE MY GREATEST EXPRESSION. YOU ARE ALL ME, ‘THOUGH YOU MAY NOT REALISE IT YET;
HOW CAN YOU NOT BE – I AM YOUR LIFE, YOUR BREATH, YOUR SPIRIT.....YOUR BE-ING...
YOU ARE MY MOST MARVELLOUS CREATION..
I AM IN EVERYTHING - THE BIRDS, THE ANIMALS, THE WIND, THE SEA, THE SUN.......
* * * * IF this IS GOD’S Truth, then I guess what we DO with our freedom of choice (of thought, word and action – our free-will), is what brings our, and humanity’s (moment-by-moment, individual and collective) upliftment and progress, or otherwise!!? When we have made mistakes, I think repentance means being sorry, of course; and resolving to aim never to make that mistake again – and to TRY, NOT to make mistakes!!
“If each one THINKS Peace, and ACTIVELY IS Peace, towards ALL People and
ALL LIFE, then Peace MUST come!” (Emma Curtis Hopkins.)
“Where your attention goes, your energy flows...”
(P.S. Unfortunately I can’t find the record of those thoughts I have shared now - my laptop has just been ‘fixed’ by a computer company following a scam, and I seem to have lost some Drafts and Sends!... so I have ‘repeated’ as much as I can recall...).
It is my feeling that man has made a God in man’s image , and presented GOD and our relatedness to GOD, as too complicated for us to easily access or relate to...ignoring the link WITHIN AND OUTSIDE us – the two cannot be separated, IT IS ONE, whether we recognise it or not...and surely IT IS LOVE, whether we humans allow it or move against it...IT IS GOD.. We feel it, don’t we, when we are STILL; “ BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD”.
