Week 3 – Perspective

As I read the Guide for this week, it seems to me that we are being asked to shift the perspective from ourselves – the photo album of our life and its interpretations – to God, and try to see things (ourselves especially) from God’s point of view.

During the past two weeks we looked at ourselves, especially in the past events that led to who we are now, and saw God behind all that.

Now, the first thing to be aware of is that God did not create us to be mad at us; God created us to love us.  When we looked at our past, many of us are aware that we have to struggle with a certain “conditioning” in our religious upbringing that makes God

I think our big question, churning away in the background of this week, might be, “So what?” or “What difference does that make?”  We could give all kinds of “shoulds” and “oughts” as answers.  But live with the question first. Not “What should we do because of what God does or has done?”, but “How am I changed by realizing that I am not alone? …that the Infinite Creator of All actually loves me!
