No one really knows what God is. We have ideas, beliefs, and convictions. But no one can provide solid proof that their experience is the only real one.
For me, God is unknown, but its expression is love and compassion, kindness and understanding to others.
Anyone who claims to be of God but that does not act in the manners of which God expresses itself, is living in delusion. That friend, unfortunately, does not walk the walk. She talks high talk, but her words and actions lack kindness and compassion. And as she is so convinced she is in God’s arms, she is unable to see how her deeds are anything but a reflection of the Divine.
I am leery of anyone who claims that they work with God, carrying God’s will. The zealots of Islam (and other religions for that matter,) perform horrific acts of violence in the name of God.
Years ago I followed a guru who claimed to be in God’s embrace. He allowed himself to abuse his disciplines on God’s behalf.
There’s a reason for the saying, “If you meet a Buddha on the road, kill him.” The one who claims to be a Buddha cannot be the real Buddha.
Thus my leeriness of proclamations related to God. I trust that the almighty doesn’t interfere in our day to day affairs. We live the Divine Plan our soul created ahead of arriving into this body, into this life. We are the actors in a screenplay we ourselves composed. God just provides the means for us to learn what we desire to learn every time we come back into a physical form.
I wish this friend, as well as others living in delusion, that one day they will realize their condition.
I realize that it is not my role to make the horse drink. All I can do is create circumstances in which those who wish, will see what they need to see.
Whether they see it or not, whether they transform or not, is not my responsibility.
I am releasing my savior complex. I let go. I have my own work to do on myself, and that is plenty.
