“The knower and the known are one.” – Meister Eckhart
1 Corinthians 3:16
Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
St. Paul somehow knew the mystical truth that God lives inside us.
God also lives in all things.
This is not pantheism which says that all is God.
It is panentheism which says all is in God.
As Paul also stated, In God we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
Or as Jesus told his followers: “I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you” (John 14:20).
I’m thinking many people who believe in the concept of God think this God is only out there, somewhere off in a distant heaven.
But that is not what scripture tells us.
If we truly believed that God was in all people and all things, then how could we possibly physically, mentally, or emotionally harm anyone or anything?
How could we harm or belittle ourselves?
If we truly believed this, I’m thinking we would be quite peaceful and loving.
Rest in the grace of it all!
