Your connection with God is not merely as a recipient, for you give to God. You do embrace God, but God is not a figure with dimensions. God is a kind of energy whose force is pure love, and embracing God is a taking in of that love, making it your own. You are not passive in your interaction with God. It is not simply that you exist, and God presents light and love to that existence. That existence of light and love is certainly there, but it is you who reach out and pull that energy into your own being. That reaching out is the work of the soul. That reaching out is to God, but since all are part of what God is, you are reaching out to God when you reach out to another human being. You are reaching out to God when you reach out to the richness of nature. You are reaching out when you grasp the soil of the earth. You are reaching out when you offer your hand to another.
