The difference between Divinity & Humanity

I continue this week my observations as contained in The Holy Experience, a book I wrote that explains the Conversations with God encounter.

I said it before and I'll say it again. All my life I have been trying to figure out...Who am I? What am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? Is there any reason for what I am doing? Does anybody care? Is there any outcome, other than the doing of it? What is the point of life?
The Holy Experience brings us the answers to those questions. The Holy Experience is the answer.

The Holy Experience is when you know the difference between Divinity and Humanity --- and when that difference disappears.

Whoa! Did you hear that? The Holy Experience is when you know the difference between Divinity and Humanity --- and when that difference disappears.
Whew! That was a mouthful.

Divinity and Humanity can become One in your experience, and when that occurs you have entered the Holy Moment. You cannot enter this Moment, however, until you know the difference between Divinity and Humanity--and why it exists.
So let's explore that, shall we?

For me, the difference between Divinity and Humanity is that Divinity seeks only to distribute, and Humanity seeks only to gather.

That is not the only difference, of course, but it is a milestone difference. It is a humongous difference. So let's not gloss over it. Let's not read past it and move on, without really grasping its implication. Let's state it again. I said...

The difference between Divinity and Humanity is that Divinity seeks only to distribute, and Humanity seeks only to gather.

Divinity and Humanity can become One in your experience, and when that occurs you have entered the Holy Moment. You cannot enter this Moment, however, until you know the difference between Divinity and Humanity--and why it exists.

Divinity understands that it is only through the distribution OF Itself, the giving away OF Itself, that it can be magnified and glorified. Humanity believes that it is only through the gathering TO itself, the bringing TO itself, that it can be magnified and glorified.

So there you have it. Giver and Gatherer. That's the difference.

It is an astonishing difference. It is an exact opposite. That is no small distinction. Yet when it is deeply understood (not simply casually comprehended), everything becomes wonderfully clear at last, and the chasm between the two may finally be closed.

Hugs and Love,
