Can life be God?

life goes onWith the growing body of evidence that life existed before human beings, we can admit that even if human beings annihilated one another, life would go on.

With my practice of identifying life with God, rather than functioning bodies and human minds, I catch a glimpse of that which gives us purpose. It is our spirituality that offers purpose in life, the home, and at the work place.

Here is an interesting comment made by Peter Drucker in his book, The Daily Drucker, “The individual needs the return to spiritual values, for he can survive in the present human situation only by reaffirming that man is not just a biological and physiological being but also a spiritual being, that is, creature, and existing for the purposes of his Creator and subject to Him. Only thus can the individual know that the threat of instant physical annihilation of the species does not invalidate his own existence, its meaning, and its responsibility.”

From 21st Century Science and Health, “The infinite never began and it will never end. Mind and its formations can never be annihilated. God’s child is not on a roller coaster, reeling between evil and good, joy and sorrow, sickness and health, life and death. Life and its faculties are not measured by calendars. The perfect and spiritual are the eternal likeness of their Maker.”

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
