Where Is God?


“Where is God in all this for you now?” It’s a typical question posed by my spiritual director. Here is today’s answer, as always subject to change!

For me God is in my heart along with all the joy and sorrow and especially with the confusion, trying to fan a flame of certainty or certitude or clarity. Then if God is within me and all beings and the universe and bigger than the cosmos, God is the heartbeat of it all; the electrical impulse that keeps us going (until it doesn’t–but then, it’s still pulsing), and of course God is linked to the breath–breath of life and cessation of breath (yet it is still flowing all around us).

In the flow . . . let it all go . . . breathe in peace / God . . . breathe out love / God . . . “all shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well” (Julian of Norwich).

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “I believe in the sun even when it is not shining.” When I pay attention to the breath of life and the heartbeat within everything I believe in the power of God and I believe in everlasting love that powers and sustains us all. Rest in that love.

  1. I feel that the Light of the Creator is surrounding all souls. However souls are like vessels for the light it is only when the Light enters the vessel that we can sense the true love that has always been surrounding us. My soul is my vessel to feel the infinite light that has always been there.

    However I must ask the Creator to change my intention from “FOR ME” to “FOR HIM”, gradually changing my egoistic intention into one towards my maker.

    As similarity to the Creator with my intentions to receive is corrected by my heart felt prayer for the Creator to help me. I develop the key to letting more LIGHT into my vessel, my soul(FROM EGO TO ALTRUISM)
