    The Presence of God

    The Daily Meditation 3.29.2014
    “The Presence of God”
    Laura Maness, Practitioner I Student

    God is All. God is everything I can think of and everything that is beyond my imagination. God is the magnitude of beauty, joy, and emotions. God is Allah, Yahweh, Freya and Zeus. God is the indefinable and indescribable. All is the breath we take, the images we perceive, the thoughts we imagine, and the experiences we are granted. God Is God. Omniscient. Omnipresent. Omnipotent. God is the I AM, the all God, Father, Spirit. There is nothing else.

    All of those attributes of God are me for I AM the child of God. I AM Her breath upon the Earth. I AM the eyes of my Mother, the literal heartbeat of the universe. I AM a petal on God’s rose, ever blooming, ever spreading my wings under the sun of the Lord. I AM God’s experience. I AM God’s thoughts made manifest. I AM Her power. I AM everywhere and everything without limits. I AM timeless. I exist everywhere with many names. They are all me. As I know this for myself I know this for you as well for there is no separation. This is only Oneness.

    What I know for sure is that my physical body traces it’s ancestry to Russia, Scotland, England, across the Middle East. I AM my ancestors. I AM all of those who have lived before and I will be a part of all who come after. With each person I meet, I meet a brother, or sister. We reunite with our God-selves. We look different but are the same. We hear differently, speak differently, but are all a part of the One. We are “made” from the same cloth. We return to the same place…to the All. We interpret this world through different lenses, sometimes thinking we are alone. The Truth is we are like the aspen tree. We all grow from one taproot. We are all connected. We are all one within the One. I know this without doubt.

    I am so grateful to know that I have family all over the world. That those I have not met are connected to me. We do not walk alone on Earth. We have each other and we all have the Holy Spirit. We cannot be separated. With this Truth in my heart I know that I cannot be separate. As I thrive, so shall ALL others. We are bonded like a Mobius strip flowing through time, flowing, without end.

    I know these things to be True. God Is. I AM. You ARE. We ARE. There is no separation from God or from each other. With this realization I send it out into the Law and know that it cannot come back to me void. And so it is!
