In our exploration here of The Holy Experience we now turn to the subject of God, and about some of humanity's conclusions about God. God does exist, much of humanity has concluded, but the incorrect part of the conclusion that we reached is that God exists outside of us, as an aspect of life that is separate from us.
I am excited this week to share with you a wonderful excerpt from The New Revelations that I happened upon the other day as I was re-reading this extraordinary text. This passage answers a question that I am asked all the time, and I just knew as soon as I chanced upon it that I wanted to put it in this space, so that you could be touched by it!
God is a living singular universal entity. It is an omnipotent Being with the ability to create whatever It desires. God is a force with many names, with representation in all religious faiths. The religious faiths are represented and governed by their own belief system. We all have our personal and group beliefs. However it makes me ponder was it God's choice to be worshiped or was it ours?
The views of humanity on so many things have been impacted by our ideas about God and about God’s desiresthat it’s hard to decide what other areas of life interaction to include on this list. The truth is, this exploration could take up an entire book. We’re not going to be that expansive. We’ll limit our survey to ten more subjects: Male and Female, Marriage, Sex, Homosexuality, Love, Money, Free Will, Suffering, Morality, and Death.
My dear friends, we love you so very much.

Some of you say, "But I know what I want! I want love! I want money! I want a beautiful home!" And while these things are indeed part of the greater manifestation dear ones, what you truly want is to experience God's love in every aspect of your life!
I know I don't need to tell you that a week from today is Christmas Eve---a very happy time of year for so many people. And yet, for many others, who have suffered deep loss or who are facing very large challenges during these says, the Holiday Season can be a very difficult time...and understandably so.

My dear friends, we love you so very much. Understand that your earth is very shaky right now dear ones and so many of you are feeling this. The times you live in are causing a lot of old fears, anxieties, frustrations, etc. to rise up within you. And yet, dear friends, truth remains constant. You are eternal beings. Your souls live forever, and no matter what you experience on this earth, it is a temporary adventure.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Your lives on earth are so short compared to the duration of your souls.

You would know yourselves as the beautiful souls that you truly are, simply having an experience and an education upon your earth.
We wish for you to review this Easter weekend in a new context. For Christians, Easter is based on an image that has been paramount to you throughout your life – Jesus Christ suffering on the cross. Please note how many of those images of torture are visible in your churches, are part of your common language – “Jesus died for your sins” and your art.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you approach the new year, we'd like to thank each and every one of you for your commitment to growth in the year 2009 for it was a year of reckoning, so to speak, a year in which everyone was forced to drop into their hearts, face their fears, confront their illusions, and to search for Faith, Trust, and Love.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. God's love, dear ones, is without condition. This is the love each and every one of you is seeking to feel, to be, and to share with the world. God's love sees each one of you as perfect, here and now, whether you are beautiful or not, whether you are kind or not, whether you have accomplished miracles or feel like a total failure.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. In this season of springtime, resurrection, and new life, we celebrate the resurrection of the presence of God within human hearts upon your planet earth.

When your systems don't work you turn to God.
