Want to Find God? Meditate

Given 30 seconds to say what is most important in life, it’d be simple: give yourself to God.

God gets a mixed review, obviously a favorable spin from religious or spiritual types, but still one with vague undertones of uncertainty. The advice I gave sounds good but what does it really mean, why is it important, and how should one go about doing it?

Let’s cut to the chase. Life on earth isn’t easy. Even when wealthy or healthy, people may be miserable. With no way to know what’ll happen one minute to the next, control and security are illusory. Money, power, fame, sex, etc. promise happiness but inevitably disappoint because they lead nowhere. And more, they distract us from realizing the truth about life:

We are not meant to find lasting happiness on Earth. It isn’t home. We’re immortal souls temporarily incarnate in bodies and here solely to learn, grow, and awaken spiritually. After spiritual awakening, we graduate from the earthly school of life and return to our divine home of omnipresence.

Understand that these aren’t just my fanciful ramblings. No savior ever preached, “Increase thy net worth” or “Be thou a sexual dynamo.” Rather, they taught that life is a journey of maturation, a process of spiritual growth that culminates in reuniting with the source of unending joy- God. So stop chasing toys, creation, and turn your attention toward the divine Maker.

Why is this important? Because we all seek happiness, and lasting fulfillment is only found in God. Everything we think provides joy is either a mental projection or reflection of inner soul joy. Nothing produces joy; God is joy. As one gets warm by approaching a bonfire, so to is lasting happiness gained by going to its source, Spirit. All else withers, God alone endures.

To each his own pursuit of what ever is important to them in this Life. There will always be believers and non-believers in a God,a Supreme being, the Source or the Universe .No one has ever come back from the dead to verbalize what lies beyond the Gates of Death.
The reality is- some non-believers do turn to God in a crisis. Whether or not they are delivered, point is, it probably helped alleviate the fear and uncertainty to a point.
Meditate, pray- whatever calms the soul/spirit but please try not to be sanctimonious- or live a life of hypocrisy. Call a spade a spade.At least be true to yourself- if to no one else.

FROM THE MOUTH OF BABES AND THOSE WHO HAVE TAUGHT THEM (a believer's special) ...

Question: What is it like to be Christian?

Answer: Like being a pumpkin. God picks you out from the patch, brings you inside and cleans off all the dirt, cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. Then He scoops out all the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed, carves you a new smiey face, and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.

I, personally, like this enough to share with all the pumpkins in my patch, hope you like it too.

... and to all others, HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN.
