God is in everything.
September 16, 2018
You wish to be open to God’s presence in life, but you experience the presence that you seek through others. You are part of what God is and who God is toward others. God’s presence is not such that it is seen only as a ray of light coming from the heavens. It may be thought to be such as a way of understanding what it means to be guided, to be directed, but in reality, God’s presence is the presence of all that is, all that exists, all that has been created.
You ask to hear God; listen to your neighbor. You ask for ways to see God; open your heart to all that surrounds you. You do not see with your eyes. You see with your heart, and you see through love. If you wish to be godly, do not wish for a flash of inspiration that tells you how to be godly. Rather, be fully open to the God that is within you, open to the light that is within you, and allow that light to go beyond who you are, what you are, where you are, and when you are.
You look for God. God is inside. God is inside you. God is inside everything. When you open your heart and accept that God is in everything, you cannot possibly miss seeing God. God is love, of course, but God is also everything, and you are a part of that everything, and therefore you have within you an expression of God.
