Theme for February 22:
The Highest God and the Innermost God: One God
“We believe in the unity of all life,
and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God.”
What Is the “God Within?”
Is the God in which you believe far away from you or disinterested in your daily life? Or, if you don’t believe in some Higher Power, do you feel cut off from the abundance you seek by some outside force?
There is a solution to both these situations, if any of them ring true for you. No, not a litany of instructions or complicated esoteric processes. Just one solution to address all three of the problems.
Ernest Holmes, the founder of the Science of Mind philosophy, gives us the solution in the quote above. Scientific research has proved beyond any doubt that all life is intertwined, all part of the same cosmic “stuff.” As such, the separations and distance we see between us and other people – or experiences we desire – is human in nature, brought on only by our own perceptions of time and space.
Do you look outside yourself for help? It’s easy to look outside ourselves for direction or approval, especially if we feel someone we admire or aspire to be like seems to have some secret of success. We aren’t taught to trust our own inner guidance, our intuition or the “still small voice” about which you may have read. Why?
Control. We are controlled by mass marketing, societal norms designed to keep us small and compliant, and individual attributes such as age, gender, race or physicality to act as a barrier to fulfilling our fondest, most precious dreams.
I invite you on journey with me this week to examine the unity of life and how understanding that concept will enrich your daily experience of life. You’ll find daily concepts and exercises beginning today at the Facebook page of my ministry: Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation.
In the meantime, consider what it would take for you to believe in a universe that is conspiring for your good. What would it take for you to follow the instructions of Jesus of Nazareth, “ASK and it shall be given to you, SEEK and you will find, KNOCK and it shall be open to you.” Are you willing to A-S-K with the knowledge that you will receive your good?
