The Divine Is Always Present

There is freedom in having problems. There is also freedom in solving problems. Freedom is not an absence of problems or a freedom from problems. Freedom is unconditional and it is an independence regardless of problems. Freedom, being who we are, is always present.

The divine, being omnipresent, is always present. The divine can be found not only in joyful feelings but also in painful feelings, not only in positive emotions but also in negative emotions. The divine is present in both good and bad times, health and sickness, love and fear, joy and pain, and even in hate and anger.

Pain could open our heart. Pain could also close our heart. If we see the divine in our pain it would open our heart. If we judge our pain it would close our heart. If we could see the divine in our emotional pain, we would feel a lesser need to resort to emotional reactions such as hate and anger. We would feel a lesser need to project our issues onto others. We would feel a lesser need for such a coping or defense mechanism. If we could really see the divine in our pain, we would find it easier to also see the divine in those who might be the external cause of our pain.

To face our fear is not to make an enemy of fear but to learn to see the divine in that which we fear. To face our fear is to expand our experience and vision of the divine. To face our fear is to reveal to ourselves more and more of who we are.

The divine can never abandon us for we can never abandon ourselves. The divine is forever seeking to know itself for the Creator wishes to know Itself. Each time we open ourselves up to the divine we allow more of the Creator’s love/light to flow and shine through us. Each time we experience the divine we get to know a little bit more of who we are. Each time we got to know the divine we helped to fulfill the Creator’s wish to know Itself.
