Dear in the mist and light

The Essence of God

  • The Bible teaches that God is a Spirit and we must worship within our Spirit and truth.
  • God is the breath of life; Yogis call this prana.
  • God is neither male or female but rather energy- consciousness; Spirit is our unifying being.
  • The Old Testament Bible forbade making images of God to worship- this practice distorts the essence of God.
  • When a person becomes wise, beautiful, healthy and holy, people are generally attracted to them because they are manifesting a greater degree of the essence of God whom is pure and untainted. We desire to become like that because it feels clean, safe and tranquil; but we must remember that it is not the vessel (the person) that we long for, but rather the Spirit within them- the essence of God.

Eight Practices to Develop the Essence of God in Your Life

  1. Prayer- Talking to Spirit or that higher consciousness as friend to friend. Giving thanks or gratitude. Asking for help.
  2. Meditation- Inner stillness. “Be still and know…”
  3. Commitment to High Vibes Life- healthy body, mind and spirit.
  4. Do no harm- Practice the art of making everywhere you go and all whom your life touches better for you having been there, even if you merely say a blessing over it.
  5. Spend Lots of time out in nature, alone- Sit out in nature where you can be alone and soak in it’s essence and beauty. Really focus your attention on every living presence around you and then realize within that it is Spirit’s essence that animates, colors, and gives it all life. Realize that the same spirit resides within you.
  6. Do not limit God- When you allow God to be I AM, and open your mind to the limitlessness of God, the essence of God will flow freely through you and all around you. Consider the Bible gives over 900 names to God; some of these are; Creator, Purifier, Holy, Mighty, Provider, Protector, Healer, Banner, I Am, Peace, Righteousness, Shepherd, Everlasting, Seeing, Star, Stone, Son, Author, First, Last, Ancient, Anointed . . . in other words, all encompassing. The Bible also says that we are God’s offspring and that in Spirit we live and move and have our being. So please do not shut your heart when someone thousands of years later relates to God as Universe or Spirit. These too are all-encompassing endearments of the self-same Spirit.
  7. Seek truth in all teachings. We are all teachers and we are all students- all the time.
  8. Acknowledge the divinity in all creation, whether people, animals, plants or earth- Namaste!
