“And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.” (Leviticus 26: 12)
This is the assuring message from a God Who is divine Love. There is no distance to this God. There is no separateness between His purpose, His goodness, His presence, and each of His ideas, His children. This God that is the One and Only, walks among us, touches us with His tenderness, tickles us with His happiness, expresses right where we are the pure fullness of His Love.
We are God’s people. He has claimed us and remains with us. His Truth abides in our lives, preserving us and leading us. We are not waiting for Him to show His face, or for us to gain access to His throne of heaven. He is not separate from His creation. He is in it, abides with it. God, good, is the very essence and quality of all life. He is also our Father-Mother and our faithful best friend.
God is Spirit. This spiritual nature does not separate Him from us, but brings Him nearer. Spirit transcends the limits of matter and is always present giving this moment all that He’s got—all the Truth, Life, Love that there is at the very place where we are. He necessarily constitutes the condition of our own being. God as Spirit is our intimate companion here and now. At the same time He is the place where we are going and the only place we have ever been. Divine Love walks with each of us today and we all walk together in the Love that never fails to save and to bless.

As always, you share deep love and wisdom with us. I love this idea, that God ‘constitutes the condition of our own being.’ This implies that there is only ONE condition embodied in man, and that is of divine Life. i’m so grateful for this elegant reminder of our individual and collective God-likeness. We love you dear, thanks for all you do…….’L’
Thank you, Leah! I have been cherishing these ideas lately and I’m so glad you agree with the potency and love in this truth of our being!
