God is Within You
God is not distant and god is not separate from you. This is indeed what all religions in essence point to, however the trend of many religions for these past millennia’s has been quite the opposite. That is they have directly and indirectly created the sense of separation between the individual and the universal instead.
God need not be seen as an entity that is somewhere over there far far away, but should be understood to be an essential substrate for which all experience refers to. This is something all the great masters and mystics of the world have emphasized, namely that you will not find the light of the supreme in objects and materiality but within yourself. The objective world is merely an embellishment to the light that shines within, without the inner light nothing outer can appear.
This is a powerful message that focuses on your subjective experience as a human being; in a sense your experience is profoundly empowered. Because it urges you to become insightful and open to the possibility that the divine is not distant nor different from your essential nature. Perhaps one need not even call it divine, one could simply call it ones own existence.
The atheist as well as the religious person could participate in this experiential recognition of who it is that is within themselves. Perhaps in more secular terms, the statement that god is within should ideally give rise to the fascination of being an aware sentient being. When doing so, that is if one is sufficiently thirsty for true knowledge /gnosis/, one should trace back this subjective sense back to its source.
True knowledge is beyond the bodily, mental and emotional aspects of man. It is ones existential understanding of oneself and ones reality.
God could in this sense be equated with and as existence. Existence is within you. Well this is maybe an obvious thing you might say. Well yes and no, precisely because the entire society and the dominating paradigm that permeates the majority of human societies is that the world is outside us. From a spiritual lens this simply isn’t the case, the world is arising within. It is first and foremost derived from that which is within.
Well if truth be told, existence when fully grasped is neither within nor without. It is formless and all pervasive. It’s like a formless screen that permeates all existence, and trillions of subjective sentient beings are appearing in it.
God’s presence could be seen as the screen itself, one totality, indivisible. When a being comes to this supreme understanding, he is sometimes viewed as an enlightened one or a mystic.
To say that God is within is truly one of the profoundest statements one can utter, as it automatically shifts our focus to our own subjective reality, and that is indeed where all the lasting spiritual truths are found.
Spiritual enlightenment isn’t something esoteric and complex, not at all! Its rather something that is readily available when a being somewhere in the universe is mature enough to recognize it. The teaching that god is within is one of these nirvanic insights and recognition that has the power to bring you closer than ever to your own enlightened core.
Below are some quotations and excerpts from some the worlds insightfuls and mystics who resonate this timeless spiritual truth.
Quotations and Excerpts
”The Kingdom of God is within you.”
“Glorious indeed is the world of God around us, but more glorious the world of God within us.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
”If god be within the mosque, then to whom does this world belong? If Ram be within the image which you find upon your pilgrimage, then who is there to know what happens without? Hari is in the East: Allah is in the West. Look within your heart, for there you will find both Karim and Ram; All the men and women of the world are His living forms. Kabir is the child of Allah and of Ram: He is my Guru, He is my Pir.”
The day of my spiritual awakening was the day I saw–and knew I saw–all things in God, and God in all things.
Mechtild of Magdeburg
”O Seeker, where dost thou seek me Lo, I am beside there I am neither in temple nor in mosque, I am neither at Kaaba nor at Kailash. Neither am I in rites and ceremonies Nor Yoga nor in renunciation Lamp burns in every house, O blind me, And you cannot see them….. Your Lord is near, you are climbing. The palm tree to see him Yoga and the telling of beads … These are naught to me.”
“Don’t seek God in temples. He is close to you. He is within you. Only you should surrender to Him and you will rise above happiness and unhappiness.”
God hugs you.
You are encircled by the arms
of the mystery of God.
Hildegarde of Bingen
“The life of the spirit is not our life, but the life of God within us.”
Teresa of Avila
“We men have one book in common which points to God. Each has it within himself, which is the priceless Name of God.”
