If you asked me, “do you believe in God,” I would have to say that the question has nothing to do with my spiritual path.
I am not interested in beliefs, even those that are fueled with intense emotions. It is not that I believe or disbelieve. I simply find that putting energy into such constructs is not personally relevant.
I am profoundly interested in that which I experience within the spaces between my thoughts. This has proven itself to be the foundation for my life and happiness. You may call this Universal energy, but that too is a concept. I use the term for purposes of communication, but I could just as easily call it Wahoogazimbo and the principles that I am teaching myself from experiencing it would be the same.
I am interested in alignment, in moving Wahoogazimbo through my physical body, in attuning my thoughts and (often unconscious) emotions to its profound and palpable flow. Wahoogazimbo dissolves all my fears when I open to it; it gifts me with delight, purpose, compassion and inspiration. It is constantly expanding into deeper and deeper levels of my own magnificence.
Yes I admit, I do have a hunch that this is the same force that permeates all of creation, but I spend little time speculating on that.
That belief is not necessary either.
