Have you ever stopped to think about whom we are and who God is in relation to us? As we live our lives, we get caught up in the day to day challenges of dealing with issues and other people. Most of us live on auto pilot and deal with life as it presents itself to us through our five senses. Most give little thought to what we can’t see and that includes God. We believe He/She is out there somewhere but we seem to only look for God in times of emergencies or crises. In my book, God is Alive and Well I present a twenty-first century view of who God is and who we are in relation to Him/Her. God is described in the Bible as the Light of the world and I have compared that Light to the light particles and waves that make up quantum energy.
When we think of ourselves, we think of the physical body that we see in the mirror and others view as solid with unique features. However, when you strip away the colour of our skin, we are all composed of flesh, blood, bones and organs. We are all the same in physical composition. What makes us all different is what we can’t see with the naked eye. We are composed of four unique bodies and not just the physical one we see. We have three bodies that we can’t see. We have an emotional body that houses our love, fear, compassion, envy and jealousies. Every emotion you have ever had is stored in your emotional body – the good and the bad – for your entire lifetime.
You also have an invisible mental body that houses your belief systems. These are formed often without you even knowing it throughout your life. These beliefs begin with the culture you grew up in and your parents are the chief architects of those beliefs. Your teachers, in school, reinforced those beliefs and every person you deal with in life has an impact on your belief system. You believe that your beliefs are your truth. However, today that truth is being challenge by meeting and living around people of other world cultures that don’t act and think as you do. Hence the crisis we are witnessing in society today is being described as tribalism.
The last but most important invisible body is our Spirit/Soul which comes to us at birth as a piece of God’s Spirit that resides with us throughout our lifetime. This raises the question of how God fits into this picture of the human who has one visible body and three invisible bodies. God’s desire is for every person to return to Him/Her as a pure sin free person, who seeks a connection with God and is guided through life by that Holy Spirit. However, God has given every person the free choice to go their own way and be guided by the urges and the contents of their invisible bodies; or connect with Him/Her. The problem is connecting to the Spirit of God is just the first step. The Holy Spirit cannot bring Light into a person’s emotional, mental or spirit bodies if they are filled with the clutter or sins of a lifetime. With God’s help removing that imbalanced energy is the second and most important part of connecting to God’s Spirit. God can only fill a person’s bodies to the level He/She is permitted.
A soul-touching and inspiring book, God Is Alive and Well presents a fresh and exciting view of God that will ultimately draw readers into a deeper understanding of—and relationship with—their creator.
