Seeing God

DSCN6836[1]There are moments that change everything.  Experiences beyond the physical world.  Instances when beliefs, no matter how strong and heartfelt, suddenly break open and become real experiences, no longer simply ideas or concepts.  Suddenly, amazingly real.  It is life changing.

It often happens in a flash, as it did to me this past week.  I was not trying to do anything.  I was simply looking at my dog – or rather, looking into my dog’s eyes.  Looking to connect with my dog on a deeper soul level.  And as I gazed into his beautiful, warm, loving, honey-brown eyes, something happened.  The universe opened.  I saw, felt, and experienced a huge, vast, powerful, endless, nameless, sparkling expansion of WOW!

And I also know that what I saw, felt, and experienced was only a faint shadow-sliver of what was there.  And it was the most wondrous faint shadow-sliver of WOW I’ve ever experienced.

And I cannot un-see it.  When I now look into my dog’s eyes, that’s what I see.  It somehow opened a channel for me.  It became real.

And I know that this universal life-force energy, this WOW, is powerfully flowing, expanding, pulsating, radiating energy force, is in, through, behind, and saturating  20140509-DSC_7467[1] EVERYTHING – every life form, person, animal, plant, leaf, dog, elephant, blade of grass, joyfully exploding with the experience of life through us, in us, as us… When I kiss my dog, it now feels like I am kissing God.  Because I am.

If this energy is behind, within, and through everything, then we are ALL living, breathing God, God looking out from our eyes and seeing and experiencing life as us, in our strange bodies.  Just like my dog – here is a sweet, cute fuzzy creature, with doggie-breath and floppy ears, living life as a dog, with God powerfully flowing and opening and expanding and radiating through him – but he continues to be a dog.  And at the same time, so much more than a dog.

Just like us.  We see our bodies, file791307641638[1]our hair, our fears, our filtered perceptions and interpretations of life, with God powerfully flowing and opening and expanding and radiating through us.  And we are still us.  And also so much more than us.

I know that if we look into the eyes of all creatures, any creature, this, and so much more, is what we will find and experience.

Because God IS all life.  And what we do to each other, we do to God.  How we treat each other is how we treat God.

file4341336852705[2] I am so very grateful for these moments of insight, expansion, and experience of what is beyond.

These experiences leave me with a feeling of having fallen so deeply in love.  With what?  Maybe with life itself.  With every living creature, with me, with God.

We are the same – only the outside vessel of our bodies is different – but that wondrous, amazing, powerful, loving energy – is so very present in each of us, and in all life.  And for me, this is no longer simply a concept or an idea.  It is so very real.  And that magnificent life force, that glorious presence, is beyond words.

I am so very grateful.  And so deeply in love.  WOW!
