A few years ago, I wrote a book called “Forever…and 365 Days” which described the daily thoughts and actions of a metaphysics teacher, like myself. One of the chapters dealt with the idea of God and what it means to different people. I’m certain, each of us has a different sense of this Almighty Power.
In my networking efforts I connected with an inspirational author, who to my surprise also served as a pastor in Northern California. He befriended me on my metaphysical Facebook page, and I thought about how I would answer him if he, being a man of God, would ask me:
“What is your idea of God and what does God mean to you?”
I would answer him without hesitation:
God is Universal power, the Almighty substance that sustains all life. I am part of this substance called Consciousness. I can think, and thinking is the conscious activity of this substance led by God’s urge of expression.
God is Wisdom. So, I, being part of this Wisdom, must choose wisely as to what I think. It is my duty!
God is good. So, I must be and act good to live up to God’s standards. It is my duty!
God is Intelligence. So, I, being part of this Intelligence, must act intelligently and in accordance with the Truth. It is my duty!
Most of all: God is Love. So, I, being part of Love must love unconditionally all Life. It is my duty!
I am a fragment of God’s essence, and I must honor my heritage.
Yes, this is how I would answer his question. Time to practice!
