This week in reading some articles written by Lyman Reed from his blog "Creating a Better Life," I ran across two videos of information by the creators of http://www.abraham-hicks.com. As I told Lyman in a comment, I bought one of the Abraham books sometime in the past six months. When it came in the mail, I immediately misplaced the book. I wasn't ready to receive the information that was in it. I had some internal resistance to the Abraham material. Maybe the timing was off.
After seeing the two videos, one of which is the reason that I am writing this article, I have changed my mind and intend to find the book. I am interested in the material after watching the video "Abraham-Hicks Video: What is God?" You will find this video at Lyman's "Creating a Better Life" at http://creatingabetterlife.net/2008/01/09/abraham-hicks-video-what-is-god/ .
Esther Hicks is the one presenting the video. Below you will find the notes that I took while watching the video "What is God?". These are the words that Esther said that resonated with me.
God is so much more than man's image of God, man's image of who God is.
In seeing himself as inferior to God, man has further separated himself from God.
In reaching for God, we push Him away by making him out there separate from ourselves.
Who am I? You are good.
How am I doing? Exceptionally well.
Being the God that you are in the physical form, you are the God that is the creator of your reality.
Thank you Lyman for sharing these videos. I invite you all to go to Lyman site and watch these wonderful videos if you haven't seen them already.
About ten years ago, I was sitting in a Unity church class trying to describe my image of God. I remember the "ah-ha" moment that I had when I realized that in trying to describe God, that image had changed. I made a huge leap forward in my understanding of God and my relationship to God in that moment. I still can't describe God to you. I doubt that anyone can. Like Lyman said in his article, God is so far beyond our understanding. Can you truly imagine what being omnipotent, omnipresent, and omnicient means? I can't. My little mind just can't imagine that big. That night I realized as I grew spiritually, so did my idea of what God is truly like. Have a glorious day.
