1 Corinthians 3:16

Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

+++

Mystics from across the ages have all intuited what St. Paul says in today’s scripture.

However, I think many who believe in God think that God is out there somewhere in some distant heaven.

But God is not just there but everywhere.

As I wrote yesterday, God is in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

The Spirit of God is at our deepest core.

Since God is love (1 John 4:8), then Love is at our deepest core as well.

Take time each day to practice some form of meditation such as Centering Prayer.

Let go of all the noise outside and inside your head.

Simply be with the Divine Presence.

Know that Love itself is communing with you.

Live from that place of love and your inner Light will burst forth.

You will shine like the sun!
