God is not in you in a literal sense; you are part of Him. When you chose to leave Him He gave you a Voice to speak for Him because He could no longer share His knowledge with you without hindrance. Direct communication was broken because you had made another voice. T-5.II.5: 5 - 7

God is not in us, but rather we are part of God. We are a drop of the ocean. When we separated ourselves from the ocean it became harder to be aware of the All from which we separated. We had made what we think is another voice, the voice of the ego. The voice of the ego is lonely and feels its deficiency, its inadequacy. We yearn to return to the All from which we have separated ourselves. If we call upon the Holy Spirit, the Spirit will help us find our way back home.
In Unitarian Universalism we know the inherent worth and digntiy of every drop of the ocean and we engage in a search for the truth and meaning of the All of which we are a part.
Today, rest quietly and know that we are part of something temendously bigger than our single self and pray for the Holy Spirit’s comforting guidence. Turn our willfulness over to the will of God.
