My Letter to God

These are my personal beliefs.  I think we all have our own path and our own personal belief system.  I respect everyone’s experience and choice.  I agree with Mark Nepo – I’m a student of all traditions – I look to learn from where they all meet.

For me,  there is one God.  Period.  I believe that being may be called by many different names.  Or none at all.

I believe I have a mind, a body and spirit/soul.  My soul is the essence of me.   It is the part of me that loves.   My soul is my spiritual experience and guides my life.  When I manage to be still.  When I listen.  My soul is my guide.  I believe it is God in me. I also call it “my gut”, intuition, a “knowing”.

I pray, mainly when I’m in a difficult place in my life.   I have a running conversation with God – in my head and heart.  Very rarely out loud.(Smile)

One of my favorite books, life changing, I might add, is Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch.  When I was reading it, I wondered if I wrote letters to God if he’d respond to me like he did in the book.  But I never tried.

Last week, On Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, I was listening to her interview with Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love.   When I heard Elizabeth say that when she was at her lowest, she wrote a letter to God and he responded to her. Not a booming God voice, not her voice, but it was an immediate response and it comforted her.

Well…I decided to write a letter to God and see if it would work for me.

Ok.  I did it and was given immediate responses.  I recognize that it was the same inner voice that guides me when I talk to God in my head/heart.  To see it in print (I saved the letter), to be able to go back and read it again…well, it’s pretty amazing.   One of the answers was something that I had not thought of.  It was news to me.  It was also really exciting advice.  I did it and it worked.

Whatever it is – it’s adding a new dimension to my life.  I’m grateful.  It’s fun too.

Just thought I’d pass it on…

    “wow” l’ve read CWG and l’m not thinking that l’m growing but l am growing in spiritual, l see things diffirently also l even spoke diffirent. but hey’ please help with “home with God” by neale D wilsch. Soo to ask, what is a Nature of a Darkness onto the Light and what is a Nature of a Light onto the Darkness?.

    • Sorry for the long delay! I just found your note. I haven’t read the book. I’ll respond after I read it. My thought is a favorite quote by someone – not sure who it was and this is only my paraphrasing – “darkness cannot take away the light – it simply defines it”. My personal feeling at this point is that light (or enlightenment) can eliminate, diminish the darkness. Even if I go into a dark place, the more I know (enlightenment), the quicker I get through my dark places and they aren’t as deep as before. And I always learn more about myself during my dark times and with that, they become less. Your thoughts?
