Help from god

We find it within ourselves

September 25th 2014
It is when humans are suffering and unhappy that they ask themselves the most questions about the existence and the will of God. They wonder whether he hears them, whether he will answer their prayers and come to their rescue. And they are often disappointed that they receive neither an answer nor any help. Why don’t they? Because they don’t ask the question properly. They act as if God was a being totally outside of them. When they understand that God dwells within them, whatever difficulties they have they will persist in linking themselves to him, and they will feel that he is bringing them light and that he is guiding and supporting them. Those who suffer often feel very alone, abandoned by everyone. So why should they also lose the only help, the only true comfort they can receive, through their own neglect and ignorance? This help and comfort are found in the presence of God within. When they pray, when they beseech, they are not only addressing the Creator of heaven and earth, a Being so distant it is impossible even to imagine him; they are addressing a power living in their soul and spirit with which they must never lose contact.
