The God I believe in, the higher intelligence, is for me all knowing and knows who I am. From that shining light I do not believe anyone can hide. Without that guiding light my life would be empty and meaningless. Over the years that divine force has brought me in touch with not just my negative, but also my positive side.
I believe that the creative force that we call God makes everybody that walks this earth unique. In that uniqueness all of us have our own way of believing or experiencing God. As we are all created different, surely that must mean we are all meant to be different? So, then we have to accept that other people can be different and believe in their own way. A wise person once said to me: “There are many different roads to God.” The road that I have been shown has worked for me, but certainly would not work for others because they have another image of God.
I believe that so many wars and conflicts have been caused because us human beings cannot accept another’s belief systems e.g.: “If you do not believe as I do then you are wrong. You do not know what you are talking about.” We just have to look at the politics of religion, to realize how destructive it can be. For example, two opposing armies on the brink of battle asking the same God for victory.
“You do not have to tell God where to take you; the power of God already knows what your road to enlightenment should be.
As I write this article an old TV-advert springs to mind, where a group of people were standing singing together. The lyrics of the song are as follows: “I’d like to make the world a better place with perfect harmony…” That ad touched me and as idealistic as it may have seemed at the time, could something like that be a part of God’s divine plan to bring us together, to build bridges? God can only work through us. Whatever our level of consciousness I believe that we are all tools of God, God works through us, but the more our consciousness expands I think we can give this divine force a much better channel to work through.
I believe that divine source does its’ best work in silence, but in that silence when we sometimes get an inspiration, or a thought or an idea, most of the time we believe that it comes from ourselves. I think not, for me it is that divine source is working through us and therefore I believe one day spirituality and science will work hand in hand.
“The God I understand has taken me on a journey to meet my own inner world; a journey of personal realisation.
The God I understand does not just target the elite of our world. Elitism is not something that higher intelligence believes in, starting from the very basic level of consciousness up to the highest. For that power everything is equal and on the divine’s menu there is something to give everybody who is willing and ready to receive. You do not have to tell God where to take you; the power of God already knows what your road to enlightenment should be. In the Bible it is for instance said: “Ask and you shall receive.” For me that works when I ask without condition, I ask with an open mind without expectation, if I ask for the truth about myself, of course, sometimes I do want to hear it and at times the truth can be hard to digest.
Do I walk my talk, well, I try to. However, one thing is for sure, my ignorance, my negativity will take me back to the same place and same situation again and again until I have understood the message it has to offer. The God I understand has taken me on a journey to meet my own inner world; a journey of personal realisation. As I made that journey, I began to realise that the intelligence of that higher power not only help me meet myself, but it has an intelligence that is far beyond my comprehension.
Today my vision of the higher intelligence and its’ purpose is deeper and hopefully a little broader than it was when I was young. The light that it offers me is a light that I need as my constant companion. This light has often been a loving parent to me. It has given me much and for that I am eternally grateful.
