More on my Credo
I was reading "The Story of Unity" by James Dillet Freeman and this came flowing out into my notebook.
God is in you. God is in me. Our true nature is God. You can never be separated from God. No one can. When it seems that a separation has taken place, it is like; not listening to your parents, tuning them out. We tune out God. We take on a will of our own, sometimes called ego. But disconnection from God (or your parents for that matter) will always feel unhappy. Comes in the form of depression or stress. Does that sound like a common complaint of our culture?
My solution is to tune back into God.
"How?" you ask.
BY going into the Stillness of Now. Some call it meditation or wordless prayer. Be still and know God.(a paraphrase of Psalm 46:10) Give up thought. (Eckhart Tolle) Even for a little while.For in that stillness is the source of wisdom. Anyone, in partnership with God, has wisdom.
Religion may catch up with Science soon and declare that all life is interconnected. Family. That's all life: birds, animals, fish, trees, cacti, insects. Mosquitos?
For now, ponder the fact that God is in you. Your true self is GOd. Stop the thought stream in your mind and be still. Know God.
