For God can be experienced here and now. God is an actual reality, a living being. God is not something far-off. As the poet tells us: “God is closer than breathing, nearer than hands and feet”. It is not necessary to go through life talking about God, hoping, praying that someday we will meet God- sometimes even praying that someday we will die in order to meet God. No, no, no, God can be realized here and now. God is a living being. God is a living Soul. God is a living Light. In spite of all the universality and impersonality of God, God can become intimate and personal to us.
