More on Finding God

My Message From the Universe post came from an appreciation of things we tune out, things that tend to fade into the background.

When I read "Perhaps God is waiting to be found in the things we try to avoid," from Danielle's where to find God: down, not up, it occurred to me I was finding God in the things we ignore.

When I practiced meditation, I was taught to focus on the quiet beneath our thoughts, on the rests between the notes, on the space between our breaths. I wondered if I was finding God in those places.

Finally I realize that we can find God in all these places: Up, Down, Deep Within and Without (As Cheerful Monk does), in the Things We Avoid, and in the Things We Ignore. After all, God is Everywhere.

The important thing is you cannot find God if you don't Look.

If God IS everywhere, He has got to be within you too. You will find Him there when you want Him badly enough.

Yes, I think that's true. I've heard of people who think that God found them!
