Weekly MMM – What Would G-d Say?
I’m going to call this week’s MMM – What Would G-d Say?
In the last few weeks I’ve been very focused on difference ways of experiencing Letting Go To G-d consciousness. Starting with Perfect As Is, followed by Letting Go and Letting G-d, this week continues the series. These mind states are all about being able to see G-d’s hand, being able to feel and believing in, becoming mindful of and submitting to the fact that G-d is running the show. And, therefore, we can let go.
The next logical step, I think, is to believe G-d is taking me to a good place, no matter what that place may be. And I accept that, which represents a major shift of consciousness in myself and in the world. The idea is connected to this week’s Parsha, too.
But I’d like to get more specific information, meaning, what is it that G-d is telling me? What message is he trying to convey?
That’s why I’m taking this MMM to the next level, which is not only trusting in G-d to lead the way, but also understanding what he is trying to tell me. And this inquiry will probably lead to Being Inside of Torah 24/7 as the topic for next week’s MMM.
In the Parshas we’ve been reading we see the Patriarchs and Matriarchs before Mt. Sinai, before the Torah was received. They were able to understand, from their level of spirituality, what G-d wanted of them in every situation. They understood Torah before Torah was given. They understood G-d’s will 24/7 in all aspects of life.
And that’s what we’re going for this week… we’re asking, “what would G-d have to say about it?” To a large extent, we already know what G-d has to say about everything, if we study deep enough and go deep into Torah knowledge. So that’s where we’re going now.
The idea of “what does G-d have to say” can be approached in a number of ways. We can simply ask a question, a series of questions and answers to find out what G-d has to say about a subject or situation. Some time ago a created a piece called Questions and Answers From G-d, which was an experiment with asking a question and then writing what I think G-d would answer.
It’s a great exercise, not on the level of prophesy of course, but we can cultivate a deeper sensitivity, a divine sensitivity within ourselves. We can gain a deeper, more thorough and powerful way. It’s one way to get answers, to know what G-d would be thinking.
Another way is not asking questions, but studying what’s actually happening in life. It’s discovering the messages G-d is sending us through our own life happenings, circumstances, challenges and accomplishments. It’s all about studying the highlights of our lives, studying the events of our lives.
Seeing the events we can see, even though we are making choices what to do, there are still G-d’s own ways of communicating with us through the events in our lives.
Another way to study what G-d wants is to resonate with life, and understand we’re drawn in a certain way, whether things are going smoothly or not, but we’re still drawn toward it and we resonate with it. That’s also G-d’s way of leading us where he wants us to go. We are drawn towards things because they are a lost part of ourselves, and these are called Holy Sparks, the lost parts of our souls.
G-d is providing them so we can regain, recover and redeem what we’ve lost. There’s a wide range of sensitivity to the human body and how to read it, especially in other cultures such as India where some sensitive people can read a person’s pulse.
Like that, we can develop sensitivity to the lost parts of our lives, our desires, what we’re driven toward or obsessed about. We need to be able to hear that language inside ourselves. It’s a language of resonation of the heart, of the soul, of the right brain, instead of the left, logical side of it. We need to develop that as a way G-d talks to us as well.
The will of a person can be hooked-up, or hard-wired into G-d’s will. And a person can know what G-d wants based on that connection.
There are other ways of knowing what G-d is wanting from us, besides Torah. And these are some of the ways. We see one classic example in Torah, which is Jacob’s ladder. One explanation involves angels going up and angels going down the ladder, which means we are sending up signals, which are the angels. Angels work for us. They are our messengers in life, in many ways.
We are sending out signals, and angels are going up the ladder, and we are receiving the results of those signals from the angels coming back down. This is one way of understanding what the sparks are all about.
There’s much, much more to talk about, but I wanted to put out these introductory words on the topic now. I’ve seen that making the choice of a transcendent topic, and exploring it in poetry and song and meditation, you can open up vistas in your life. I want that for myself and anyone else who cares to jump onboard with us.
