So for those who are keeping score, I acknowledge that I am all kinds of behind on the goal of writing every day for a year. Just for the record, I still intend to write about these 365 daily portions from the Tao Te Ching however long that might take me.
The Way is present whether I can see it or not. God has always existed and will continue to exist whether or not there is one human being left on this planet who believes it. As I still my mind and emotions and wait for that voice that is telling me to be still and know… there is a peace that passes understanding…
I have read the Bible, asked Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and Savior, and steeped myself in drenching moments of worship but the Truth is that God is inside of me and always has been since my conception—and, dare I say, in some form or another before that.
So what am I doing here as a spiritual being having a human experience? Recent speculation has led me to this profound decision: Seeking a deeper connection with the Divine is the purpose of my life. Everything else is just what happens depending upon the level of said connection. Simple? Maybe. Easy? Not so much.
