What about the Kingdom of God is within you that you don’t understand? Is it because you keep searching for the ‘prize’ outside of you when it is deep within you? Or is it that you know it’s there and you want to have some fun being in command before you relent to its authority?
The funny thing about the Kingdom of God within is that it isn’t authoritative! It’s all about experiencing, living in and sharing Divine love within and without. It’s a state of being that aligns, culminates and expresses Divine love with each and every breath. It isthere within right now and it only takes you getting out of your own way to experience it.
Perhaps that’s why too many people never find it; because it is too easy. It is so subtle that it is missed by most because it requires the least. The Kingdom of God is not a hierarchy of praise and worship but an embodiment of Divine love. It is giving to others what you desire the most and receiving from others what they desire the most. It is in the giving and sharing that the playing field is leveled and the experience of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance brings peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.
Becoming one with the Spirit of God within is the easiest thing you can ever do; yet religions and beliefs drivea wedge between you and God by their rituals, beliefs and vacuous practices. You don’t have to kneel to pray, pray in a church or pray in front of others. That is subjugation created by church leaders to humble you in THEIR presence and NOT God’s.
You don’t have to fear going within in deep meditation for that is where God resides. That is where God speaks to you as an individual. Religions don’t like that because it cuts them out as the middleperson. You don’t have to just tithe the church with ten percent of your earnings in order to gain God’s favor. You can give of your talents, skills and abilities to others in Divine service because God IS within them as well!
What is so easy becomes so hard because when we follow what we believe over what we know we separate ourselves from the Kingdom of God. The realization of unity in spirit comes from our understanding of Divine Oneness and exercising Divine trust here in the now. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
