What is Our Relationship With God?
With God or the Universal Being is our only enduring (eternal) relationship. God is our true origin and goal, our ultimate friend and companion. God is our father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, friend, and master. Whatever we are related to in essence is God or Brahman as the true Being of all.
God is the Self, the Divine Presence which dwells in the hearts of all beings. We are not merely related to God, God or the Supreme Being is our true nature. In the highest truth, we don't have a relationship with God, we are God. All that we experience is related to us, part of our own eternal and infinite consciousness and its creative capacity.
The love we feel with others is only a
portion of the love that is eternal, which is our own immortal Self.
All relationship is an attempt to see ourselves in the other and the
other in our self. There is only One Self in all beings seeking to
rediscover its universal wholeness. All our relationships are in the
Self and of the Self, which is neither you nor me but all.
