God in Us

“It has been in the relationship of observation that you have interacted with all other life forms as well as with inanimate forms. In the relation¬ship generated by observation, those forms have been perceived as real. That observation produced the solidity and mass of the forms you observed. Yet it is the spirit that animates form that is real. Informing could be understood as making the spirit known in the form of physicality. It is not simply the bringing of spirit into form but the making known of spirit in form. What you made known through judgment-free observation was but the precursor to what is made known through informing.” (ACOL, D:Day15.6)

If we want to interact well with our brothers and sisters, and the larger world, we need to let the spirit who animates us take precedence. And this spirit is God Himself. He lives through us, animating and enlivening us. He always means us well. He acts when we, our little personal selves, don’t feel up to acting, when we are downhearted and depressed. God can dispel this ennui, and He does do so.

We are made known through our spirit, and this spirit informs us of what we need to know. This spirit is the Self, the All, the Whole, the One—God Himself. We are made known through physicality, in this world. And we discover much in this world that will give us joy and lift our burdens. God always stands ready to help, to assist us to come into our own.

Don’t let a gray day take away our good sense. We know that God wants us happy, and would we not give Him a good day—for as He lives through us, He experiences. This is a point that is often overlooked in A Course of Love. The Almighty has a stake in how we live our lives, for His is an indwelling Spirit Who sees and knows all.

We observe the outer world and the inner. And then we are in-formed by the Spirit of God Himself. This is the new way, no longer learning in the old fashion. If we open ourselves to God, we will experience the best that life has to offer. If we keep anxieties at bay, we will live better. And God Himself will thank us, for as we live, so does He.

Dear God,

I would give You a good day, and this means that I lean on You for comfort and solace always. I don’t get keyed up with anxieties, because I trust in You. And the day that You live through me becomes glorious indeed.

Be with me for a good experience. And in the “being,” give Your Self a good day as well. This I ask in Your will.

One thought on “God in Us”

  1. Great reminder and post. Its easy to be grateful and happy when things are going our way. But its how we behave when things get hard and uncomfortable that show our true character.
