The challenge we have in this life is to understand who we are and who God is in relation to us. We know we have a Spirit or Soul that comes in with us when we are born and leaves when we die. Our Spirit or Soul is the piece of God`s Spirit that gives us a connection to the Creator. Jesus told us that we need to be born again or spiritually connect to God, if we want a meaningful life. However, God will never force himself or herself on anyone. We have to seek the special connection of our Spirit with the Spirit of God. We wander through life seeking a reason for being on this earth. Connecting to God gives you the answer.
Our Western religions were based on the patriarch, Abraham who established Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Unfortunately, a patriarchal system arose where the only voices heard over thousands of years was male energy which dominated religion, politics and business. The masculine energy is associated with the left brain which looks at everything from an analytical point. The right brain is associated with feminine energy or the creative and heart feeling of the person. Even today left brain, masculine energy still predominates our institutions but we are starting to see breakthroughs in feminine energy rising in importance.
In the Old Testament we see God as the Spirit who emphasized the masculine, left brain thinking, representing rules and regulations for living. In the New Testament we see the feminine energy of God coming through in Jesus. His teachings emphasized the importance of not only love through right brain connections with all people but still supporting a left brain, masculine energy approach to life. God was asking us to be balanced individuals using both left brain masculine energy and right brain feminine energy to live our lives. So, what is our answer to living in this complex and often challenging world.
As was mentioned at the beginning, we must establish a connection between our Spirit or Soul and the Spirit of God. The choice is ours and can only take place when we, with pure intent, ask God to come into our lives and connect His Spirit with ours. We are in the driver`s seat of our lives and it is up to us to make the first move. God didn`t put us on this earth to be alone. For better or worse, we have to share this planet with 7.5 billion people. Some will become family, friends or acquaintances. Another may even become our spouse. What we must remember is, if the connection with God does not exist, the marriage will have major challenges. All relationships must come together as two whole balanced people for total success to be achieved.
