Forsaking All Others Brings Us to Unity

Most of us feel that there is a source or creator or God or ultimate order to life.  Connecting to this for some of us, is fleeting, takes effort and may even be something we think very little about.  How do YOU connect with the spirit within you?  How often do you connect?  How does this connection effect your life?
Do we have to have a God?  I believe God is.  God is within us all. Not all of us recognize or understand that it is this God within us that creates our experience according to our own filters of belief and viewpoint.  Our experience is created whether we recognize this aspect of it or not.  I believe that the quality of our experience improves with peace, harmony and love, if we do.  Does this mean that folks who don't believe in God are doomed or suffer more or are wrong?  No.  It simply means that some of us believe in God and some don't.  I believe that everyone is living to express who they are and moving into their potentiality that will be included in their expression.  This is change.  I can feel the harmony and completion of the entirety.
We all live a different experience.  Our relationship to our experience creates it.  This includes our relationship to ourselves, others, God, the earth etc.  That is the many.  There is that part of life where we are all one.  Some say this is the God within us or Christ consciousness.  Paradoxically, the oneness doesn't negate our individuality, it empowers it. 
My viewpoint is that nothing is external to God, and God is not external to me.  God is an essential part of who I am.  God is I AM in me.  The paradox is that I am both differentiated (individual), and undifferentiated (God).  I am God (Father), myself (Son), and my experience (Holy Spirit), expressed in states and stages and dimensions of consciousness.

Molly, thanks for using my illustration for your thoughtful post. My art work has always been my connection to an inner spirit.

I don't hold much with "God" - at least in the conventional terms within which the word is used. In the end, though, much of it is a question of language; of forcing our experience/awareness/insight into conventionally used concepts which just don't fit very well.

Our talk of God is usually talk about ourselves. A lot of "God-talk" ist confused. There's nothing wrong with that, the problems arise when people start to tell others what God "wants" or doesn't want.

Man is all imagination.
God is Man and exists in us and we in Him...
The Eternal Body of Man is the Imagination,
that is, God, Himself.

I like what you said about dimensional existence, that for me is the key.

To believe beyond sense, is entering another realm of thought, emotion and
inner sensation. Some forms of meditation can cause this, Terrence Mckenna used hallucinogens. The point is to get beyond the illusions of external life, becoming less and less identified as one goes. If the conditions are right, one can sense a higher level of being behind which stands God.

We were not created solely for this meagre flash of physical existence, it is merely a brief stopover to further ones experience. The faster one can wake from the sleep of external life, the faster one can know God.

As always, thanks for sharing!
