Wherever we are, we can see the sign of the living God in ourselves. He is not a concept or a mere daydream for the times of needs. Any of us, who has ever been in the lowest and in the highest, who has ever felt lonely, isolated or being Blessed and winner, who has felt no comfort on Earth or has embraced a tree or cried over the beauty of a falling tree leave, has experienced the sensation of God. He is eternal, He is everywhere and in every one of us. Even when we betray Him, chasing cheap and easy solutions of lies, hate, rage, denial, selfishness, ignorance, scientific reasoning over others’ feelings, He is still there.
It might be our shimmery conscience what gives us the proof, the wisdom we can share all of a sudden, the uplifting spirit what guides others, the sincerity amidst the clouds of life, the necessity of humble giving – all are the signs of Him, in us.
He does not need “clever words”, high-life, medals, materials. Though God wants us to be happy, satisfied, having everything for a nice and comfortable, healthy life, these are just results of the unity. A unity with Him.
Our God, our Heavenly Parent has been longing for us since we were conceived. As the result of fallen history, He could not talk to us directly, could not even touch us, or embrace us. He could not share our sadness, our joy. He was there, behind an invisible glass-wall, being torn away. All the clues, hints, whispers we find in our life are leading us towards Him, back to the bosom of His eternal, unchanging love.
Being estranged, we blame Him for all the miseries in the human history, the bad fortune, the sicknesses, the wars, the misunderstandings, and so on. But how could He be involved in all of this, if we are constantly kick Him off with our lifestyle, our attitude, our selfishness, and shortsighted thinking?
To have God in our life, we need to be absolute, unchanging.
Only then God can test us, time to time, on and on, hoping our determination is deep enough to trust. He wants to be direct with us. Speaking to us, laughing with us, crying with us, personally. He wants to share all of His love, wisdom, knowledge, wealth with us, without expecting anything in return. It is enough for Him, if we can relate in a harmonious, mutual give and take action where we respond with love and beauty.
Wherever we are.
