“Those who know God have experienced the fact of his presence; such God-knowing mortals hold in their personal experience the only positive proof of the existence of the living God which one human being can offer to another.” [UB 24:06]
Thought Adjuster: “In your world, belief systems are at times dangerously engraved in the human psyche, thus causing a widespread state of non-receptivity. Indeed, beliefs have to be constantly put to the test, as it is the only way to validate or invalidate them.
Beliefs are theories articulated by the human mind to make sense of life. Just as scientists or mathematicians formulate theories in their quest for understanding, each one of you adopts belief systems based on many factors, such as their place of birth, their education, how they view themselves, etc.
Progress cannot be achieved through mere beliefs. Yet, such beliefs may well fool you to ‘believe’ that you know it all. Wrong. You can only KNOW what you personally experience. Knowledge is experiential, not intellectual. Experiential knowledge becomes a personal testimony. You know what you know. Nobody can take that away from you.
Do not listen to those who tell you that it is beyond your human capacity to know God and that you should satisfy yourself with hearsay about His Omnipresent Presence! This contributes to taking the wind out of your spiritual sails. God is a LIVING GOD! He is the very life force coursing through you. As well, He sent a very personal Fragment of Himself to indwell you. This should tell you how much He is interested in having a ‘personal’ relationship with you—not a generic one.
Search and you shall find, as the object of your quest is the Ultimate Reality. Ask and you shall receive. Experience and you shall know. Do not be lazy and complacent in the way you lead your life, as laziness robs you of meaningful potential experiences needed for the continuous expansion of your being and nudging you toward Spiritual Communion and Oneness with the Divine Reason of your very being. Then, the testimony you will share with others will entice them to go on their very own quest for quality time with their All-Loving Progenitor and Mentor.”
