God is Love

I often write about my views concerning the difference between religion and spirituality and find it encouraging how science and spirituality now seem to be coming closer together. It’s never been my intention to disrespect any religious beliefs when I write about the politics of religion. I believe God is Love in the earthly form of energy. Everything in our world vibrates, I believe that in humans the higher the frequency of that vibration, the closer one is to the mind of the universe.

Science now understands that the brain is an electrochemical organ. When the brain is in an Alpha state, a frequency of about 9 to 14 cycles per second, the body’s relaxed and capable of internal and external healing. Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, Ki Energy training and treatments, are excellent ways one can use to reach the Alpha state. Mother Clara Hale proved that the human frequency of unconditional love was healing in her noted work at Harlem’s Hale House program. Many heroin-addicted babies were saved by Hale house volunteers coming to the hospital just to hold them. In Korea this is called chunsoo (Heavenly Hands): the power of healing by touch.

It’s my belief that Jesus was a spiritual person who provided evidence of the power of unconditional love. I also believe it was the politics of religion that had him killed. Eckhart Tolle writes in his best selling book A New Earth, that the politics of religion provides a foundation for some to equate truth with thought, and as they’re completely identified with thought, they claim to be in sole possession of the truth. Unless you believe exactly as they do you’re wrong.

Tolle goes on to say that more and more people are starting to understand that how spiritual you are has nothing to do with what you believe, but everything to do with your state of consciousness. This, in turn, determines how you act in the world and interact with others. I remember as a child I lived with my grandmother in South Carolina until I was 5 years old. A lady lived up the road from our house who we called Miss Mary. She washed clothes for a living, she was good with herbs and animals. I liked Miss Mary. She didn’t always go to church, so some people talked about her.

Miss Anderson was one of those people. She always had a Bible in her hand and was always in other people’s business. Her family had a good business and she gave a lot of money to the church because God had blessed them. But Miss Anderson could be very mean to be so close to God. One day I asked Miss Mary why God was so good to Ms. Anderson when you are so kind and helpful to so many people. Miss Mary smiled at me and said “God is Love”. I’d forgotten about that talk with Miss Mary until I started writing this article.

Miss Mary was a wise lady.
