People often ask how they might know on a very deep level that God, Spirit is with them. Actually, it’s quite simple; live like God! And how does one do this? Practice daily, hourly, each moment you remember, what some call “random acts of kindness.” If love is endless, pure, unbounded, and the same as God, Baha-Oula or whatever you call It, then simply begin to practice it and “wala!” you will know and feel It!
From the Course in Miracles one reads this principle constantly. This morning I read, “God has given you a place in His Mind that is yours forever. Yet you can keep it only by giving it, as it was given you.” (T. 11. I.6) In the early Christian writings one of the more authentic recordings of Jesus’ words has him saying, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you given will be the measure you get back.” (Luke 6:37-38) Wow, what a deal?
Of course the “deal” is to live it, remembering constantly that you and I are not our bodies but in Essence, Spirit, One with the Creator forever. We can give and forgive because in actuality, Spirit loses nothing, ever. Yes, bodies come and go, are born, age and die, but so what else is new? Live as though you were eternally One with God, Spirit and you will get back more than is imaginable.
So today, when you meet anyone, husband, wife, child, neighbor, friend and especially foe, extend love and kindness. I guarantee you will get back more than you ever dreamed. Organized religions have distorted this often to mean money, but that’s actually the very least of it, the end of it. Giving to experience is based on Spirit sharing. If I am “everything,” then it makes logical sense I can only increase it by giving and sharing it, right. Try it and you will see, with everyone everywhere; with “green eggs and ham, in the house, out of the house, in the car, wherever!”
Do you want to experience a day which is just “out of this world?” Then just try it. Imagine you are Everything, One with God. Someone says something mean to you, or judges you wrongly, or cuts you off on the road, or tries to cheat you or does cheat you; LET IT GO! It doesn’t make any difference except for the sake of your own inner cup running over and over with peace and unspeakable joy.
Do you want to “prove God” is real and with you, something much bigger than life around you itself? Try it and let me know. I give you the guarantee that you will be rewarded many times over. Stop judging, griping, complaining, bitching about life, people, the world! It is all unsolvable anyway! Give Everything a chance, and your daily duties will be so much easier, more enjoyable, and this says nothing about how the people around you will feel too!
God bless us all with peace this day, for as it comes to us, it will come to the world!
