“You can argue over opinions about God, but experience with him and in him exists above and beyond all human controversy and mere intellectual logic.” [UB 1:6:6]
Thought Adjuster: “There is indeed a vast gap between opinions and personal experience. By definition, an opinion is a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge, while an experience occurs through practical contact with, and observation of facts or events.
“From that perspective, it is evident that, as long as people form opinions about God without validating them by personal experience, they will disagree intellectually. On the other hand, those who diligently engage the Divine in their daily living will get to KNOW Him, and no detractor will have the power to convince them that their experience has less weight in gold than their opinion.
“Because you were ‘divinely’ and lovingly conceived, the Divine is part of the fabric of your DNA and is involved at the multi-levels of your human experience. Surely, you can behold His Beautiful Artworks and get a faint idea of His Breathtaking Qualities. However, God does not wish for an intellectual relationship. He wants to be loved by your open heart and partake in your thoughts, feelings, and actions.
“By living in such a state of awareness, you will share many quality times of intimate connection with your Divine Indweller—your Partner-in-Love.
It is challenging to depict such a soul connection with words, as words are small containers that cannot do it justice.
“The luminescence and self-confidence radiated by those whose life is in alignment with its higher calling, speak volumes. It should awaken the curiosity of those who are so entrenched in their opinions that they feed destructive and dead-ended controversies.
“Engage in an experiential quest to get in touch with the truth, beauty, and goodness living within the divine and human hearts—your inbuilt fact-checkers."
