Our Love Language
I attended our Church's webinar the other day. The moderator ask us to look within to determine our 'Spiritual Love Language'. Just as our individual 'Language of Love', can be identified, our 'Love Language' with God can be realized. Some communicate with God in nature, some find God while studying truth, some experience Him in service for others, and other in religious worship or meditation.
As I listened to the discussion, I found that my 'Way' was not specifically on the list. I found it partially in all the Love Languages, but not complete enough in any one that I could truly identify it as my love language with God. Later, I realized that I find God in 'Discovery'.
One of my earliest memories is gliding across a mirror calm lake in the dark of night, surrounded by the lights of hundreds of cottages on the distant shore. Each of those cottages were beaming light across that mirror, and as we move forward, those lights were following me! "I must be special", I thought. "I bet they follow every one else too. All of us must be very special".
Feeling the Existence of God
Our religious quest, or any internal quest for that matter, is not about a battle of words, ideas and beliefs.
First, it is awareness that we are a result of something magnificent that pre-existed us. Second is to realize that we have been designed for the entirety of our being to be a part of every aspect of this experience. We are fully embedded in this magnificent construct that reaches beyond us.
Finally then, what matters is to 'feel' the reality of 'God's Love'.
Tap into those feelings that brings deep experiences.
I have begun some adventures that keep the spirit of discovery alive.
