God Dwells in me as me

God Dwells in me as me – Eat, Pray, Love (Movie)

“God dwells within you as you yourself, exactly the way you are. God isn’t interested in watching you enact some performance of personality in order to comply with some crackpot notion you have about how a spiritual person looks or behaves. We all seem to get this idea that, in order to be sacred, we have to make some massive, dramatic change of character, that we have to renounce our individuality”

It has been a cause of debate for centuries…..what is the right way to connect to God….I for one is quite happy with the turn of events for the past decade or so where more and more the shackles are being released and the “My way or Highway” way kind of belief systems are being questioned…!!! Having said this, I am not insinuating that the traditional methods of connecting to God or connecting to the Higher Consciousness does not work…..all I am saying is, that truly isn’t the a way etched in stone. With the gradual reduction of the denseness in Earth energies, so many people are experiencing more and more events that cannot be categorised under absolutes. Each journey of finding our true inner self is unique, the bends…..the highs and the lows………..the joys and sadness………is all UNIQUE 🙂 I believe that is the reason why the world over people say that children are the closest to God because they just “are” so filled with their own light and they believe what their hearts tell them.

There are still certain reference points which people refer to from time to time to understand events or certain occurrences in their lives; while it is excellent that today, the tolerance for the “dynamic / supernatural” has indeed  gotten a fair bit of recognition and we have a lot of reference material which is available to us through the world wide web, it can also cause a bit of confusion. It is imperative that we understand that the Age of Aquarius is about going within and finding the answers and as it is our individual journeys there is not a set path. The beauty of this time is that it inspires us to see and believe in oneness and the fact that we all are actually connected to the Source as we came from the same Source. An Apple tree can naturally produce only Apples 🙂 We are all part of the same Energy source. All that we are and that we see is nothing but energy.

 This also implies that even if the manner in which we experience the Divine or find peace of mind is not listed anywhere, it is OK….infact it is better than that…it is your way…your unique way of connecting to your Higher-Self. No one can confirm or deny that theirs is the only path worth following to connect to God. It is of course great to come across teachers when we are ready to learn and the guidance they give us is invaluable however if what we experience is slightly different that what they speak about….you need not despair for you still will find GOD because God dwells within you as YOU 🙂 and also the way you receive messages from the Divine is your unique way…trust in that way and be aware of it because your awareness will lend more energy to it and make that connection even stronger.

Mindful meditation is one such beautiful example; the traditional method of meditation while highly revered is not the only way to raise our vibrations and increase our awareness……….being mindful of each moment while you dance, drive, read or clean the house is equally effective. Silence indeed calms our mind and makes us more aware however some people like me get the most valuable lessons when I am writing or talking to someone whether in a healing session or otherwise…the intuitive guidance simply flows through me. Yes! I admit that even I at one point in time struggled to go the tried and tested route of sitting down…quieting my mind and while I have had success with that too….the amazing feeling of the guidance flowing through me when my mind is completely occupied with something else is quite frankly the most invigorating experience for me. This is just one aspect, I am sure that each one of us experience God in our own unique way and there is nothing wrong in that. All I would like to add to this post is….listen to your heart for your highest guidance comes from within you so pay attention and respect that voice.

If your heart tells you that a stone you found on the road has magical powers; then it does. Belief and Faith is all you need for you to connect to your Higher Consciousness which is the Divine Universal Consciousness.

So if you feel that you connect to GOD while cooking then so be it……..that’s your way and I say it rocks!!!

A beautiful Story – Cherokee Legend

Cherokee Legend

“His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him an leaves him alone.  He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it.  He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN. He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him. Maybe even some human might do him harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!  Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him.  He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm. We, too, are never alone.  Even when we don’t know it, God is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us.  When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.If not, you took off your blindfold before dawn.” 

Moral of the story: “Just because you can’t see God, doesn’t mean He is not there.  God ensures we are watched, protected and guided every step of the way. 

Walk by faith, Not by sight
