Experience of God

Eternal Reality

Prerequisite
The mystery of being chosen
Path and goal
From spiritual being
Matching myself
Found again
Inseparable
Awe
Constraint
Differentiation
Obligation
The work of ‘grace’
Divine laughter
Pre-eminence
Possibility of redemption
For the sake of love
Taming the ‘beast’
Guilt and atonement
The Eternal
Renewal
Immortality
Knowledge
Afterwards
To each his own
Self-deification
Becoming real
Experience of God

Experience of God

 

All people ready for light
Can experience God’s presence
Within themselves,
If they truly would perceive
Within themselves God: –
The Eternal, Living One
Who is himself Love –
In his abundantly good
Eternal
Humanity.

Yet most who rummage
Through brain and heart
For the trace of God
Want in truth to feel
Trembling and shaking,
Hidden earthly things,
As pleasurable enjoyment.

And others
Seeking in despair
The God
Of their own creation
Must learn to understand
That they are merely calling themselves,
Whether they are praying and worshipping
Or cursing ‘godlessly’ within themselves
The god they once believed in.

Only he will become aware of God,
Self-certain, as about his own existence
Here on earth,
Who within himself
Learns to love Love
And for the sake of Love has removed
His soul as high as mountain peaks
From all the hate and envy-filled
Pastures of the dark and lustful herd.
