Change your attitude and you can change your life and come to know God.
If you look at the world and believe it is magical, it will be magical. If you look for love and compassion, it will be there. If you see everything as a wonderful opportunity then that is what you will find. Everything is as you choose it to be. Your thoughts create and by your actions you turn them into reality. So if you act with love and compassion so will you find the world loving and compassionate. If you see God in everything and everyone, in the whole of humanity and the whole of your world, then you will come to know that as true.
The steps to knowing may be long or short. You may leap ahead like jumping over stepping stones or you may find your road to be long and winding. You may even find a shortcut straight to knowing. It is as you choose.
The first step is understanding. Understanding that you are part of a world, which is a part of God. There is no disconnection between you, your world and God. You are all part of the same Divine Entity. You are one with the world and God. God is in you and with you and around you. Everything is God. Everything is love.
The second step is acting. To ease the path to believing you should act like everything is as you want it to be. So if you want a world filled with love, act with love, expect to find love, see love everywhere. If you want to know God in your life and in your world, act like God is everywhere and within you. See God in everything around you: in the birds, the trees, the flowers, the bees, your friends, strangers, the whole of humanity, the whole of the planet and the universe and beyond. See that God is everywhere: the good, the bad and the indifferent. All are part of God. See it and act like it is so.
The third step is believing. The more you act like something is as you understand it to be, then you will find yourself believing. You will see evidence of what you expect to find. Look and you shall see. Seek and you will find. Look for love and you will see it. Seek God and you will find God. You can then start to believe that God is everything; you are surrounded by love.
From believing it is a short step to the final destination of knowing. If you believe something to be true and you find evidence that it is so, then gradually you will begin to know the truth. You will open yourself up to the possibility. You will open yourself up to the existence of God and yourself as a part of God. Through meditation, you may walk through a door in your mind’s eye and find yourself transported into a wondrous experience and connection to God; a revelation that changes your world, that transports you into a state of knowing. For others, there may be no epiphany but a gradual progress through evidence that what you believe is true; like the drip of a tap gradually filling a basin until it overflows and you cannot deny what you have been shown.
From the first step of understanding that you are part of a divine entity that we call God, through acting this out, starting to believe, you can reach knowing. Knowing your place in a miraculous world filled with love encompassed by and re-united with God.
Change your attitude and you can transform your life and be re-united with God.
