I See God In You . . .

Updated on July 8, 2012

"A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man. "

Albert Einstein

Can You See God In Yourself?

There is compelling evidence that we are all separate. I know that I hold back a great deal that I could share with others because I frequently feel separate. I write it off to being a loner, but really it is a way of protecting myself. As I get older I have come to appreciate everything so much more including the things I don't understand. I am not a particularly religious person, but I know that there is an unexplanable power in the universe permeating everything and everyone.

There are all types of people and circumstances we are all facing, but when I stop to see God in everything I realize that is where peace is. Peace of mind is more important to me than anything. I make every effort, I can, to see people and circumstances in a way that brings me peace of mind. This is how I learned to see God in you. It took longer for me to see God in myself.

We all spend much of our time reflecting on the past. I've done this, too, but I cannot find God there and I cannot find God in the future events I worry over. But, when I am here in this moment I see God in everything. I am a person who likes to see verifiable logic in all things. I have pondered the wonders of the world around us and I have shaken my head in dismay many, many times trying to understand the things I don't, but as Werner Erhardt once said, "Understanding is the booby prize in life." The real prize is in the experience of life in the moment.

The happiness we share comes from ourselves and I am so very happy to share that emotion with others. I could not imagine a world with such awesome wonder that the mystery would last a lifetime, but it is the world I live in every day. That I am in this world sharing my consciousness with others and having others share their consciousness with me is so extraordinary that it touches the very core of me.

Today, I wanted to just tell you that I see God in you and I hope you can see God in me and in yourself. Thank you for letting me be with you.

I See God in You . . .

      I think that is well said. Thank you for stopping by to comment. God is everywhere. Where we see God is determined by us.

      I am more of a spiritual person and tend to find peace and happiness when I am surrounded by nature.

      Thank you YFN.

      I haven't had a lot of time to write lately. Other projects call with a much louder voice, but today at church we had a Couple and a lady friend of theirs sing for us for the whole hour and we were asked to sing along thoughout. I felt so uplifted when I came away. I realized that I do see God in everyone and everything most of the time and it makes me so happy. I love you and I definitely ALWAYS see God in you.

      Glad to see you writing again. I do see God in you and I try to see God in every day events and circumstances with people that I am placed in contact with daily. As far as peace and happiness goes, I spent a great deal of my life searching for happiness but now realize that true happiness in already within us all. It is placed in us by God. It is our job to realize that and express that happiness to others in the form of love. It isn't always easy, but it is our responsibility. Great writing .
