“What if God Was One of Us?”

If we can integrate this cross-cultural spiritual principle — that everything is part of God – into our lives, the ramifications are infinite. For example, if all people and things are ultimately part of God, how are we going to act when our neighbors are giving us the cold shoulder? When our coworkers are playing power games? When our partners or friends are getting defensive when we bring up our feelings? When our kids are rolling their eyes at us?

We can use this metaphysical understanding to help us avoid getting caught up in feelings and actions of revenge and resentment. If everything is God, including ourselves, then experiment with practicing reverence for all things, situations, experiences, thoughts, and beings because it is all God. We are all throbs of God’s heart.

Joan Osborne sings, “What if God Was One of Us?” It appears that God is us. God is that stranger sitting on the bus. God is that slob trying to make his way home. God is that mosquito that we’re about to slap; God is that hamburger that we’re about to eat; God is currently reading this page.
