God, where are you not? By Deb Adler
I revisited an article yesterday by Parisha Taylor, also known as Pa’Ris’Ha, on her website parishas-world.com. It was title “All days are the Sabbath” and made the point that the Sun is with us every day, and because God is in all things, every day is a day of worship and praise for God, the Creator.
Traditional Indigenous Peoples recognize the relationship between nature and humans. Yet because they respect and see God in all things – the animals, the trees, the plants, the “creepy crawlies”, the stones, the sand, and all the “Elementals” – wind, rain, snow, thunder, lightning – it is thought by some that they worship these things as God.
They See God/Creator in All Aspects of Creation!
I have come to see more clearly from that perspective. If God is indeed all-present, that means God is everywhere! We don’t need a special day to worship and praise God, because every day we draw breath, we experience the miracle of life. That is praise-worthy!
Every experience we have is Creator working to our highest good. We only need to have faith and know that we are loved.
So it makes sense to include appreciation and an “attitude of gratitude” acknowledging God’s gifts in every day of our life. Every day is Sacred because we are Holy Beings!
