“Everything is God”

empty concrete road covered surrounded by tall tress with sun rays

Here is a simple perspective to inject into our daily lives that can solve all of our division: everything is God. Everything that we can taste, smell, feel, see and hear is God. All our thoughts, emotions, desires and actions is God too. All the suffering, all the joy, all the good times and bad is also God. All the people, plants and animals that you encounter…. yup that is God too! Let this perspective of divine omnificence enter our consciousness and watch the world’s problems recede like waves in the infinite ocean. For armed with this mystical knowledge that everything is God how could anyone even entertain the crazy notion of hurting the earth or their fellow man?

“Cycle of Birth and Death”

The Prince of Birth and the Prince of Death

Contended in the darkness

The Prince of Death announced:

“I am the culmination and window into the beyond. Therefore, I am more important!”

The Prince of Birth retorted:

“You may be the window into the beyond, but I am the inception point and the rite of passage back into the wisdom of form. Therefore, I am more important!”

In response, Brahman broke into laughter at the audacious claims of his two devotees

And playfully declared:

“Birth is such. Death is such. Birth or death what’s the fuss?”Death is Sure as Birth
