Awareness of God


The simple awareness of God, gently held, like the calm center of a storm is in truth, reality.  Time flows like a dream, the stream life has its different currents; yet it moves forward over the rocks and down the falls and finally when its journey is over into the ocean.  We are pilgrims, there is no rest, we cannot cling, but we can abide in the infinite presence of a love that we will spend an eternity seeking deeper understanding and yes knowing, in an unending revelation.

I can work with that. :nw:

I don't agree on anthropomorphizing the DIVINE, but God to me is the breath of life, an everlasting love that has the power to keep the world in order. I think the ultimate awareness is that God is the supreme enlightenment. Like I have said many times before- I think of myself flying in the sky with xray vision being able to see every heartbeat in the Universe. God is every heartbeat

If god is love then become love. No prayers can compare to the kindness of a good soul.

What is the most resilient parasite? An idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can change the world and rewrite all the rules.
We all are Gods and Demons-exerting the energy of will to squeeze the anarchic creativity of nature into our own image.

I learned a new word and I agree with it.
Markdohle: you have the talent of a writer/author you are so descriptive. But when it comes to an awareness of God your description effects me like cotton candy - seems sweet but quickly disintegrates into nothing substantial.

Sorry

SIMPLE EQUATION

God is the Original Impulse of Creation, the Divine Spark. The pause between the impulse to create and creation itself. It is implosion and explosion; impetus and stimulus. Original Impulse of Creation is that which brings anything and everything into existence from the Divine Mother and through the Divine Father. (symbolic)

I want to know what you know about god. Enlightment sounds ambiguous and deceptive. What makes you so sure your "breath of life" is god? Do you believe you'll be enlightened when you die?

Romans 1:25 -"they worship the creations rather than the Creator".  God IS the breath of life and all other things of creation but He is so much MORE that this description limits him to only what mankind can describe or understand.  That god is WAYYYY too small :)

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

Are you saying the human soul is god? Is the breath in Gen2:7 a means to activate the soul? If soul is god how can god destroy god? If soul is god why do we need god?

I am a Christian my friend, I believe in the Love of God as manifested through Jesus Christ.  His teaching and how he related to people is for me the lessons I seek to understand on a deeper level.  I think in terms of abandonment to God,s will in my life, to arise when I fall, and to seek to love others as Christ taught.
