We’ve all heard the parable of walking in the sand and noticing a set of footprints beside ours and realizing that they belong to God. The reality is much deeper than that. God is actually your feet walking in the sand.
We’ve also heard the expression that God is closer than our breath or under our nose. God is our nose. God is our breath. There is only God. We just haven’t fully realized it yet.
Can you imagine integrating God as the Doer into every corner of your life? Can you feel God’s hand brushing your teeth, sense God walking in your sneakers, and feel God breathing through your lungs?
One of my favorite depictions of God as the Doer is from R.D. Laing:
The experience of being the actual medium for a continual process of creation takes one past all depression or persecution or vain glory, past, even, chaos or emptiness, into the very mystery of that continual flip of nonbeing into being, and can be the occasion of that great liberation when one makes the transition from being afraid of nothing to the realization that there is nothing to fear.
