As is common, I discovered that it was time for me to add a blog post. I sat for some time wondering what in the world I might write about, I only knew it was what I was going to do. ‘Divine’ finally revealed itself, I pondered, Divine what… Assistance. OK. What is that? Let me find out.
Actually I am well-practiced at divination and the above process is an example of it. I seek divine assistance in everything I do. My life is that of a singular devotion, to God. I also place all of my confidence in God and nothing else. I have no other idea as to how else to live. You see to me devotion to, and confidence in, only God, encompasses everything I might have to do. What could I be given to do that will not be realized in this way? Is there some commitment, some relationship that goes without when God is the singular devotion, the well for my confidence?
God is to be realized by Gods own presence, I make no determination to say, ‘this’ is God, or, ‘that’ is what God said. I do not look for God in text thinking that I must rely on someone else’s experience to walk with God. God is realized by God’s own being and no other way. What if God does not exist? It makes no difference, then that would be God. How could that possibly change anything?
I think the existence of God is obvious, however, whatever God is or if God is naught.
How do I measure my walk with God, my place on the path of providence? I look for spirit guides. There are many spirits but it is helpful to consider the spirits that we allow to animate our self. When I consider that which is absolute or what can be considered of an absolute nature I consider what does animate those qualities in my life. That which is, is absolute, and confidence is a spirit that animates that in my life. Compassion, can only exist in a single measure, a measure that is enough for all. It is absolute and love is the spirit that animates it in my life. Understanding, nothing can organize itself well enough to exist without it, it is absolute, and acceptance, is a spirit that animates it in my life. Truth, is absolute, things can not be except as they are. The spirit of truth is grace and it animates truth in my life.
How do we find these and make them a part of our life? We must choose the path to the narrow gate. That gate is forgiveness. Forgiveness allows for these to find a place in our life, but who should we forgive? There is only one, when we have it for this one we have it for everyone. The only person we are asked to forgive is our self. You see if we have forgiveness there, it exists, and all who find us find it.
Who is God? Where is God? What is God? Ask God, and trust only God, not what is said about God, not some doctrine. Trust God if you would Know God.
