Daily Reflections, Day Sixty eight, Experiencing a taste of Oneness


Day Sixty eight
Experiencing a taste of Oneness.

“There is no need to further clarify what no one in the world can understand. When revelation of your oneness comes, it will be known and fully understood.” W-169.10:1-2

God is……………. and what more can be said? The Tao Te Ching states “The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth. The named is the mother of ten thousand things.” And the best response to such an idea is laughter. We are so foolish having the tiny mad idea that we are separate from the Divine.

We, humans, arrogant, prideful, narcissistic think we can name God. We think we can label the absolute, the ground of our being, the force, and in doing so control and manipulate what we call God.

A person asked one time, “Do you believe in God?” The wise sage said, “What god is it that you are speaking of?”

God is not something or somebody in which one believes. God is something a person either knows and is aware of or doesn’t. The verse from A Course In Miracles tells us that there is no need to explain, to justify, to describe what it is not possible to explain, justify,  and describe. We either know or we don’t and those that know have no need to describe God while those who don’t know can talk about it for hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, whole lifetimes.

God is not external to us. God is not “out there.” God, if you experience God at all, is in your heart and mind. God is a verb which you experience not a noun that can be objectified.

Today, I will take several moments throughout the day to just be still. I will take some deep breaths, relax my muscles, and just melt into existence. If you can “freeze” you can set your body aside and expand your consciousness and perhaps, if grace arises, you will get a little taste of Oneness.
