Faith has been my personal stumbling block. Maybe because I was such a good student and learned to live only in my linear, analytic brain. It took a painful divorce and an intensive 8 month coaching training program to reconnect me with my body and inner knowing.

Now I look at faith quite differently. I was trying to have faith in a God that is somewhere outside of me. Now I have faith that God and God’s infinite love and intelligence is powering me. True desires benefit the world and come from God. I am an instrument through which God views creation and creates.

I took a philosophy course at the University of Virginia one summer called, “The Case For and Against God”. The professor taught us all the tools of logic and we used them to try and prove or disprove the existence of God. The end result? You could neither prove nor disprove the existence of God using logic and analysis. You just needed to take a leap of faith.

I now understand that you will never experience God through your intellect or your mind. You experience God when you look at a beautiful sunset or your child or partner and feel an overwhelming sense of unconditional love.

Love is your guide. Not romantic love or sexual intimacy. It is the loving acceptance of all that is. God is perfect. God is the allness and beingness. There are some dark forces at work in our world. We overcome with love and truth and never consenting to that which doesn’t come from love and truth.

God will never forsake you because you are made of God and by God. There is no separation between you and God.

I am the light of the world. You are made of light.
