Today I just want to understand God. Climb a little higher, see a little more broadly.
There is something new and refreshing about this.
Gone is my list of issues to bring to the table for healing.
Gone is my framework of thought, my ego, full of trying.
Today, this moment, is all about God.
God is unending life. A force of creation, a mighty all-inclusive and enveloping affirmation of goodness and all that goodness is. Life is not breathed into us, Life flows through us, enlivening, energizing, revitalizing us. God is our breath.
God is immortal. Remembered and recognized, enduring and deathless. The substance of all being. God is permanent and perpetual. God is not subject to the limitations our words, denominations and cultures may bring. Beyond what the human mind can conceive, God is.
Fundamental, original, primitive and pure, God is the substance of all being – of all consciousness. All that we experience comes from this foundational element of true being. Its perfect Principle establishes the life-giving harmony that governs all being.
Perfect. In all parts whole. Logical and ever surprising Whole and entire. God perfects being with an exacting Love. Rising from a boundless basis*, God's activity is unending: the seed within itself, creation ever appearing from the nature of its inexhaustible source#. Without flaw, crack, lack or vulnerability.
We can join in the ageless, sacred psalms of praise^ where we are filled with the unutterable confidence that we are loved, because Love is supreme. There is no power that can stand against the omnipotence of God.
Consider these ideas:
* SH 258:13-258:15 God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis.
# SH 507:28-507:29 Creation is ever appearing, and must ever continue to appear from the nature of its inexhaustible source.
^ Ps 105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. ( and all the rest of the Psalms!)
Good reads:"Totally, absolutely perfect"
