God is a part of my everyday life. He seems very real and personal to me. I do try to pray and to talk a lot to Him, so perhaps this is why I have found Him to be such a loving and wonderful part of my life.

People seem to have many different perceptions of God. To some, God is just part of nature, in and through everything, but not really personal- not really a "Living" God.

To other people, God is mean and cruel and (to me) seems to be on the lookout for sins of every kind.

I was wondering what you think about this. For you, is God personal or impersonal? If He is impersonal, how do you live without His Love?

Peace and Blessings,

It is not possible to live without God's love for without it, you would not exist. The love of God is unconditional and considering that you are not and never have been separate from God, you are also unconditional love - it is what you are made of. Each being in existence is an expression of God and unconditional love.

In order for God or the One consciousness to fully experience Itself in all the ways that God can experience Itself, it granted each being, each part of Itself, each expression of Itself free will to be and to do whatever it wants to. God loves you so unconditionally that It allows you to believe that you are unloved if you so choose to believe that; that is true unconditional love.

God is and is in all things both personal and impersonal, God is All That Is. God is neither exclusively male nor female but is all genders. That is why I use the terms S/He or It in order to help to loosen the belief and the hold that religious dogma has created throughout His-Story - by preaching that God is
a man.

Eddie if I could I would give you 100% for your answer. It's spot on.

Thanks Paulina. Can we say: a part of God asked a question and another part channeled the answer from God to answer God who asked the question? Kind of like an infinite God loop :)

To say that God is impersonal is not to live without His love. In fact I feel it means the very opposite. When we are concerned with the personal, we are caught up in that little sense of me and are concerned only with it's little needs and wants...God is concerned with so much more. In that sense he is not caught up in the personality as he recognizes the divinity in each being beyond the personal.

The Divine that I've come to know encompasses All as One, and although it loves that little me it knows that I am so much more. As white tiger so rightly pointed out the Divine lives in me and I in him.

My personal view is with the idol worshiping of that which some call God. Is wrong. The lack of acceptance of everything. That there is nothing outside "God". If you don't do like we do then you can't believe in "God". Your "God" is not right.
You say God is part of your everyday.
Every breath you take is from "God" .
The Biblical (not just the bible either) portrayal and interpretation that many have used to lead others astray from the truth of that which you call God. And believe that that which we do is wrong that we sin and make God angry, that would imply that God makes mistakes!? I don't pray any longer. I find worship to be missed placed. I worship nothing.
I look at the stars.I feel the rain on my skin, I smile at children's laughter. I enjoy life.My prayers is my life. Not words of praise to an idol. Not a continuous want and whining for this or that.

Accept what is Now.Change will come that is the only thing that is constant.

Cool. I think that prayer is a form of asking, in a sense, yourself and giving yourself permission to allow yourself to have what you want. What do you think? Organized religion does not have a monopoly on prayer; but then again, if the church is a corporation then it probably does :)

(28 Nov '11, 14:30) Eddie

My definition of prayer is still linked to my christian upbringing and the western cultural view of prayer. As a synonym to asking /focus /desires I would agree with ya Eddie.

(28 Nov '11, 21:38) ursixx

I love the verse from "The New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle. I love the fact that you say my prayer is my life. God=Life, it's as simple as that.

(29 Nov '11, 07:32) Paulina 1

yes and I think it is that simplicity that makes it difficult for many to accept. We are so use to reading the small print,waiting for a catch

Part of today's A-H quote: There is nothing about your physical awareness that connects you more to the Non-Physical aspect of your Being than that of your breathing. Many assume that the process of breathing is only about your physical nature, but that is not the case. The process of breathing is much more than an essential function of your physical body. Indeed, it is the flowing of Spirit to you, and through you. That is the reason that when the focusing of Spirit through your physical body ceases, your breathing ceases, also.

Our meditation experience will induce a convergence of beneficial aspects for you, for as you relax into the natural rhythm of perfect breathing while hearing these spoken words, the Vibration of your physical being will gently surrender to the Vibrational frequency of your Source, and you will become one with your Source, inside the Vortex.

Through the hearing of our words in your relaxed state of allowing, you will allow the gentle tuning of your Vibrational frequency to match the frequency of your Source.

(29 Nov '11, 11:34) ursixx

This will not be an exercise of effort or trying, but instead an exercise of releasing and allowing…gently allowing yourself to be who-you-really-are.

Jai, God only becomes personal to us when we are born again of the spirit. In other words we become conscious of the God within and Gods power. We are aware that God is all and everywhere all the time. Thats when true miracles start to happen in our lives.

When we say God is personal we dont mean that he isn't everywhere and in everything we simply mean we are awake to the God within and comunicate with God regularly. Strange how some will personilise God by giving him human traits. In your case the seeker of sin. Reckognise the fact that you are the one seeking sin within yourself. You can change that if you so wish. If you change that perception to a loveing and forgiving and tolorant God your whole life could change.

Just know that whatever it is you want God wants it for you too no matter if it is right or wrong. Free choice. You gave God the power to seek sin so why not change that and give God the power to seek only the good and the wonderful and see your life blossom.

does your finite mind really know that which is outside of space and time,
so some will commonly anthropomorphize an image while others do not

anthropomorphize had to look that one up v.tr. To ascribe human characteristics to. v.intr. To ascribe human characteristics to things not human. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/anthropomorphize
