One of our assumptions is that there is some entity we call God. Another assumption is that we read the letters forming this word from left-to-right. I take the mathematician’s word for it that there is no proof that God does not exist, which incidentally leaves the atheist in a vulnerable position. Even if there is no personal God or a God of the type of which Nietsche declared he is dead, one would be wise to consider the possibility of one.
Another way to make sure we are on firm ground of logical reasoning, is the concept of an ultimate cause. There are only a very few human beings who do not believe things are caused at all. So by logical reasoning one would have to chase back the causes of the causes and one would have to eventually confront the fact that there is always a thought at the cradle of anything. And if we call that which thinks a spirit and the creator of spirits God we are all set.
Let‘ s start out with some form or concept of Innate Divinity or Cosmic Consciousness and discuss what could be considered under the heading of ‘connection’.
We are talking about individuals who are getting into contact, understand or come to terms with the whole by expanding their awareness to encompass all of existence and not just themselves in the ‘ego’ sense. By the whole we mean themselves, their families, groups, mankind, other forms of life, the entire physical as well as spiritual univers(es) and who or what is creating all that.
There are a few more mandatory ingredients i.e. omnipresence, omniscience and omnipotence. These we cannot do without or we would invalidate the whole concept of supreme being. This is basic math. Add up all spirits and all of their thoughts, powers and local manifestations–and we end up with the super powers that must be present in the creator of that whole. This is what we have termed God.
Ready for ‘connection?
The first obvious one is prayer, direct asking God questions an hopefully receiving answers one way or another. This is not my way and it may not be yours, but here is how an author at one website described it:
“The worst thing you can do is to stop talking to God. We can get mad at our creator and even yell and scream at him (I certainly did). God appreciates ANY relationship he has with you..as long as the lines of communication are open. There is no right or wrong!
I have heard God speak to me. Not the way I think he spoke to Moses in the bible with a booming voice or with a burning bush, but rather in a thought which contained an answer to a problem which I had.
Experiment, try different things. Find what suits you best.My point, is that it is easy! It doesn’t have to be hard!”
Next is meditation which may be defined as communion with God. This is often done in a quiet space or out in the woods or some use soft music. There are an endless number of methods and numerous books and data exist on that type of connection.
There are numerous methods of self-inquiry, introspection, reflection aiming to directly or indirectly contact the ultimate powers of the universe.
Me and many of my friends are familiar with methods we call processing or mirroring to connect with the source of all we perceive and experience.
Some are using what is called channeling to discover the ultimate wisdom and very often the channeled information again points to the forms of connection mentioned above.
During the God Connection Congress, 17 -19 May 2013, the stress will be on what we all have in common, what we can learn from each other.
Can we agree on one definition of God that would satisfy all of us?
Can we agree on what the common denominators of our connections to God are?
Can we learn from each other in the process?
Can we work together for a better world and more happy relationships between all people?
I am very excited at the prospect of experiencing unity and togetherness amidst a great variety of spiritual beings and I am sure we will all be better off having met.
