The Allness of God

We continue our journey through, Practical Metaphysics, by Eric Butterworth.
I spoke last time on the basics of Metaphysics and how to apply it to our daily lives. To look through the pane of glass and not just at it. To see and acknowledge our Christ consciousness. Or as Mr. Butterworth states in Chapter 1, to be an “Eachness” of the Allness of God.
Let’s consider the word “Allness”
By now, we have come to know in consciousness, and have evolved to realize that the term “God” is not anthropomorphic by any means. There isn’t a white haired being sitting in a recliner chair watching us from afar. The Hubble Telescope is still sending back beautiful pictures of the vastness that our planet is spinning in. God is IN us. The energy of Principle flows in and through us, whether we are aware of it or not. It just is. It’s who we are.
When we become fully aware of this truth, this is when we begin to awaken to our Christ consciousness. Our Eachness of the Allness.
Consider for a moment the words attributed to Jesus in John 14:11. He states, “Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not then believe me because of the works themselves.”
We are in God and God is in us. God, is Principle, the Presence, Omnipresent. Energy. Allness. All that is.
Butterworth says it this way; “ God is an Allness in which I exist and you exist as an eachness.” I am, you are, an expression of God. Let that sink in a moment.
Another example is this wonderful quote by the poet Rumi, “ You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.”
Say it to yourself. “I am an expression of God.” “ I am an expression of Allness”
This means you and I express all the attributes of the Energy, the Principle, or the Omnipresent nature of being.
What are those attributes?
Some of these are:
God is Divine Mind. Mind in action, your thoughts, and ideas expressing. What are you thinking right now?
God is Divine love. From Jeremiah 31:3, “ Behold I have loved you with an everlasting love” We are an expression of love in our eachness. Totally and constant.
God is the Allness of wisdom. We have that wisdom. We have many opportunities to use our wisdom throughout our day.
God is the Allness of life. No matter what our appearances to the contrary, we are the exuberant, joy-filled, perfect expression of life!
Now, now that we have an understanding of our part in the Allness, what do we do with it?
In practical Metaphysics, we practice the presence of God. Practice the presence of our eachness. Mr. Butterworth states, “It’s getting ourselves in tune and working out of that consciousness.”
We choose, as Jesus did, to do the work he did and better.
At any point in time in your day, come from that eachness of the Allness.
Watch the words you use with others and my favorite, social media.
The behavior of your mind when waiting in traffic.
How you talk to yourself during the day. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. Truly listen to the ideas and attitude you project onto yourself. Do you see the divine spark that you are? How about your neighbor? Your employer?
Are you coming from the Eachness of the Allness when muddy paws require you to change before heading to work or school? With all the rain we’ve had, those of us with dogs may need to really practice. How about when our beloved cats bring us gifts we would rather not have, let alone see it?
To practice the presence is to live constantly as if you really believe the Allness of God, the divine potential for wholeness, is present within you.
