Connecting with the Divine Source, or Universe and/or Divine Spark within : Love, Joy, Compassion, Wisdom and Resiliency in crises
The mission of this blog is connecting with the Divine Source, Universe or GOD (UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND COMPASSION )and/or the Divine Spark with us to cultivate love, joy, compassion, wisdom, balance and resiliency in crises. This includes integrating knowledge from different religions/spirituality, psychology and wisdom traditions to live more meaningful and purpose driven lives.
THIS BLOG SEES GOD AS THE UNIVERSAL DIVINE CONSCIOUSNESS OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND COMPASSION. People have different names for God based on different religious, spiritual and wisdom traditions. Some believe that God is Unknowable to the human mind and cannot be named or fully understood. Bishop T.D. Jakes delineates between people having experiences of God, yet, the inability of the human mind to explain God. Paramahansa Yogananda describes God as Love, Consciousness, Absolute Existence and Ever New Joy. Dr. Maya Angelou defined God as “All” and that the soul yearns for the “All”.
Divine Spark Within Us
THE ASSUMPTION IN THE BLOG IS THAT WE CARRY A PIECE OF DIVINITY WITHIN US AS WE ORIGINATE FROM THE DIVINE SOURCE AND RETURN BACK TO THE DIVINE SOURCE. Christianity refers to Divinity within us as the “Kingdom of God”. Buddhism refers to Buddha nature at the core of each person. Hinduism talks about the Atman (soul) of a person. Western psychology paradigms, such as, Dialectical Behavior Therapy developed by Marsha Linehan discussed the “wise mind” which is an intersection of rational and emotional minds and source of wisdom. Another assumption of this blog is that love, pure joy, compassion and wisdom, balance and resiliency in crises comes from our connection to the DIVINE SOURCE and/or Divine Spark within.
