Everyone likes ice cream, and for the fussy ones vegan options are available. But what is the connection between dessert, and God?
The all-powerful, omniscient, omnipresent God is the immanence of the Divine in our world, and could be included in any relationship we form. If we form a kind, loving and helpful relationship with another person, the Divine values are included, and God comes along.
There is absolutely no difference between such a human relationship and the way we form a relationship with the Divine – with the understanding that any relationship with Divinity is transcendent and transformative for us, because the Divine is already at our core, already residing in the foundation of our Being, is our Being.
The approach and the actions and reactions are the same in a Divine relationship and a human one. However unlike with solely human relationships, we are unable to fool, manipulate, or deceive Divinity, leaving the singular ability, the fortune to create a relationship that is honest, open, loving, courageous, mighty and practical.
It is practical because it serves as a template for all of our relationships here on earth, those we choose to have. Those who are seduced by evil are always noticed, but viewed as if inert. The actions of Divinity have no place in their lives, allowing instead the compassionate machinery of the Cosmos with its unerring lessons, its karmic resilience, to gradually lighten their hearts.
Although Divinity is by its very nature the abode of Bliss, any relationship with humanity is cause for rejoicing. These ever humble servants, architects and sculptors of Mother Divine celebrate whenever each of us recognizes, acknowledges, and surrenders to the Grand Creation and all of its workings – more Bliss, more creative expression, and more happiness for all.
Totality is not static, nor is it bound in any way. Totality sees the three worlds, and Brahman ever reaches for the Heavens, and the Heavens delight; everyone gets an extra scoop of ice cream. 🙂
Fulfilling the promise of every religion, we are not separate from Divinity on this earth, and the more strongly this dynamic relationship is expressed, the more clearly such values can be manifest, bringing Heaven on Earth, now.
Knowing this, kindly enjoy the promise of this ascending year. 🙂
