The Personal Focus of God Within You
Teacher: Trinity Teacher Uteah
Most of you have heard it said that “God is within you.” What exactly does this mean—how does God live within you? To answer this requires that you ask yourself this question: “If God lives within me, then Who AM I?” When you sincerely ask this question, stop and think about who you are asking? Are you addressing your own mind and expecting an answer, or are you addressing someone that hears you—and if this “someone” hears you, then truly this someone must be listening intimately to your thoughts? For someone to listen intimately to your thoughts requires that they are with you at all times and that they have an “investment” in who you are (to be with you and hear you always) unlike any other. This “investment” in who you are IS the personal focus of God within you.
Let’s continue to ask questions, for in asking these deep personal questions is the beginning of an awakening to god-consciousness:
“If this God within is personally focused on me—monitoring my thoughts always, and is interested in who I am, then this God within must know everything about me—every intimate thought, desire, hope, fear, and longing?” “This is a level of intimacy that no other person shares with me—not even my partner, or life-long friends—it is replete intimacy!”
“Replete intimacy means that all my thoughts and life experiences are shared with this God within—even those things that are the most private that I may never share with any other person.” “Who AM I that this God within wants such an intimate connection with me?” “It’s as if this God within sees through my eyes, hears through my mind, and feels everything I feel—it’s as if this God within is very much like me, but never interferes with my decisions—this God within seems transparent, non-personal as if waiting for me to do something—what is it?”
This non-personal—non interfering aspect of the Indwelling Presence of the Creator (God within) is waiting for you to acknowledge your intimate partnership—to begin a new life of conscious co-creation—to unify the non-personal with the Person (you). You may have acknowledged a Parent/child relationship with deity at some level, but this more intimate aspect of a conscious co-creative relationship is entirely something new. It means that you are worthy of receiving the Creator’s personal focus and because you have it (yes, you actually have it), you have a powerful partner that wants to express creation through your personality—through your thoughts and actions—through you! The question, “Who am I” is answered continually and it is revealed in greater levels of completeness as you express creation through this intimate partnership.
Will you now introduce yourself to the God within; acknowledge your worthiness to have the intimate attention of this God within and to begin a life of conscious partnership? All your life this Indwelling Spirit of the Creator has waited patiently behind the scenes of your life for this moment where you become aware of this intimate partnership. Will you agree to allow this powerful partner to have more expression in your life and to guide you toward a greater revelation of yourself? If you are looking for the words to activate this powerful relationship, I suggest the following:
“Hello, my Beloved Partner—today is the day that I willfully acknowledge our intimate partnership and I wholeheartedly desire that you express your Will through me and guide me on a path that leads to a greater revelation of myself—to know who I am and to lead me to fulfill the purpose of my life here and hereafter.” “In faith, I place all trust in your wise guidance and accept the lessons that not only show me who I am, but who I am not.” “My Beloved Partner, fill me with the treasures of your expression—lead me into all Truth—show me the Beauty of your creation, and help me to understand the Goodness of your likeness within me.”
Assisting always in your growth,
I AM Uteah
