Hey you “everyday, ordinary, unassuming guru seekers” – YOU ARE ONE OF THEM! My God, don’t forget that. You are a guru in your own right! Merriam is wondering in the right direction. Are you?
Hi Mr. White
Where do you look to find God? Do you believe in God? Is that a stupid question? I am in my thirties and I would like to think there is a higher power than my fearful self in my life. Just wondering.
Blessings to you Mr, White … Merriam
In a small village there lived a very strong, large older man with a great white beard that everyone respected. He had a way about him that was so calming and yet powerful. Every day when he would go to the well with his bucket of water, he would look down into the well and say, “Thank you God” before leaving.
One day a small boy, who had made note of this strange event for several days, went over to the well after this giant of a man had left, and looked down the well to see what God looked like. For surely God lived in the well if this man gave thanks to God by looking down the well.
The boy peered down into the well and saw an image in the water. He took a minute to adjust his eyes, and “Oh my gosh, the image of God was his very own self!”
Look in a mirror, Merriam, and there you will find God looking straight back at you. Was it not said, “The father and I are one, and the father is greater than I, and I am in the father and the father is in me”? Could that be true for you also, Merriam? Just wondering.
Blessings back to you Merriam, Rob.
So now we look at a very powerful lesson of living – acknowledging the grace of the Infinite’s presence in your very own being. I don’t want to get heavy with this matter, but is it possible that if you’re to connect with God you must accept that God dwells in you, rather than out there in the heavens somewhere?
Blessings & Love Rob
PS The truth of your original nature is corrupted by a logical mind that has to make horse-sense out of everything? Once you see yourself as a butterfly there’s no going back to being a caterpillar. And yet, when you’re a caterpillar it makes no sense to think you’re a butterfly.
