and perhaps our relationship with the divine.
Jan Phillips suggests,
"God is the creative force behind all things.
It's invisible, but you are the manifestation of it.
The Sistine Chapel should have been a mirror.
You are the eyes, the hands, the feet of that creative force.
That energy is in you.
It's called your breath.
Don't think there's some man out there pulling strings.
This civilization-if you can call it that-is YOUR creation.
This earth, it is not a bunch of resources to be exploited.
It is not to be owned.
It is your mother, the womb that you sprang from.
You are its consciousness, its neural cells.
The whole earth is the organism that you belong to.
You did not come down to earth, you came up from earth.
Its well-being is in your hands.
Can you be proud of what you're doing?
Are you going to be the ones who kill it off, after all that talk about pro-life?
We're like the physical form of the same energy.
The ice cube version of water or steam. Same elements, different form. The sea and the iceberg. You're all icebergs in the Sea of God.
But the problem is you don't realize that underneath it all, you're all connected.
There's just one big iceberg with a lot of tips.
The truth is, you're Creation continuing the co-creation of Itself."
May we be filled with grace as we re-define and re-image God.
