What God Is and How We Connect with Him
“Each of you has your own construction. Each of you has understood Me—created Me—in your own way. To some of you I am a man. To some of you I am a woman. To some, I am both. To some, I am neither.
To some of you I am pure energy. To some, the ultimate feeling, which you call love. And some of you have no idea what I am. You simply know that I AM.
And so it is.
I am the wind which rustles your hair. I am the sun which warms your body. I am the rain which dances on your face. I am the smell of flowers in the air, and I am the flowers which send their fragrance upward. I am the air which carries the fragrance.
I am the beginning of your first thought. I am the end of your last I am the idea which sparked your most brilliant moment. I am the glory of its fulfillment I am the feeling which fueled the most loving thing you ever did. I am the part of you which yearns for that feeling again and again.
Whatever works for you, whatever makes it happen —whatever ritual, ceremony, demonstration, meditation, thought, song, word, or action it takes for you to “reconnect” —do this.
Do this in remembrance of Me.”

“In My purest form, I am the Absolute. I am Absolutely Everything, and therefore, I need, want, and demand absolutely nothing. From this absolutely pure form, I am as you make Me. It is as if you were finally to see God and say, “Well, what do you make of that?” Yet, no matter what you make of Me, I cannot forget, and will always return to, My Purest Form. All the rest is a fiction. It is something you are making up.
There are those who would make Me a jealous God; but who could be jealous when one has, and is, Everything? There are those who would make Me a wrathful God; but what could cause Me to be angry when I can not be hurt or damaged in any way? There are those who would make Me a vengeful God; but on whom would I take vengeance, since all that exists is Me? And why would I punish Myself for simply creating? Or, if you must think of us as separate, why would I create you, give you the power to create, give you the freedom of choice to create what you wish to experience, then punish you forever for making the “wrong” choice?
I tell you this: I would not do such a thing—and in that truth lies your freedom from the tyranny of God. In truth, there is no tyranny—except in your imagination. You may come home whenever you wish. We can be together again whenever you want.
The ecstasy of your union with Me is yours to know again. At the drop of a hat. At the feel of the wind on your face. At the sound of a cricket under diamond skies on a summer night. At the first sight of a rainbow and the first cry of a newborn babe. At the last ray of a spectacular sunset and the last breath in a spectacular life. I am with you always, even unto the end of time. Your union with Me is complete—it always was, always is, and always will be.”

“Hear Me, everywhere. Whenever you have a question, simply know that I have answered it already. Then open your eyes to your world. My response could be in an article already published. In the sermon already written and about to be delivered. In the movie now being made. In the song just yesterday composed. In the words about to be said by a loved one. In the heart of a new friend about to be made. My Truth is in the whisper of the wind, the babble of the brook, the crack of the thunder, the tap of the rain. It is the feel of the earth, the fragrance of the lily, the warmth of the sun, the pull of the moon. My Truth—and your surest help in time of need—is as awesome as the night sky, and as simply, incontrovertibly, trustful as a baby’s gurgle. It is as loud as a pounding heartbeat—and as quiet as a breath taken in unity with Me.”
