The “G-Word”

How do you feel about the G word? The word “God” means different things to different people. My relationship with the word wasn’t so great for a long time. I grew up Southern Baptist and was always very curious why sweaty white men were yelling at me every Sunday and telling me not to make out with boys.

My relationship with the word changed when I found a definition that made sense and rang true to me.  So let’s define what “God” means, shall we? At least for the purposes of this article. My favorite (working) definition of the moment is:

The collective consciousness of all that is.

Eckhart Tolle defines it as, “The power of life itself. Which is different from a mental concept of God. Even belief in God is only a poor substitute for the living reality of God manifesting every moment of your life.”

If we agree that God is omnipresent, that means that God is everywhere and that includes inside of you. That sounds fancy and even arrogant but how do we know? How do we know that God is you, me and your puppy dog; all the planets and all the stars, and even the computer or phone you are reading this on?

How do we access that divinity inside of us on the bad days or when we feel isolated, small and alone?

Create.

Make something, write something, put on your favorite song and dance around your living room, make a new dish for dinner. Any act of creativity is an act of divinity. What if, every time you create something, you wake up that little piece of God inside of you?

Nature is constantly using us as vessels for creativity, and it’s our job to download the information and bring it from the unmanifest into the manifest. Our ideas are not our own, but rather Nature’s way of using us to further its agenda of constant expansion and evolution. Below are a few tips to help you wake up your inner divinity every day.

Energy either creates or destroys. It doesn’t know how to be stagnant therefore Nature does not support stagnation. The more your create the more of nature’s support you will get.

Your #zivaCHALLENGE this week is to create something—anything every day this week. Start a company, write a song, learn to make sushi, get pregnant (take a minute to consider this one), try a new recipe.  It doesn’t matter how big or small, simply create.  Then take a picture of it or send us a video of your experience on Facebook or Twitter!
