When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.
“Deepak, do you actually believe in God?
Or is that word, when you use it, only a reference to a universal consciousness? Thank you.”
I think direct experience is always preferable to belief.
I understand God as the all-inclusive intelligence, love, and creative power of the universe, so it’s not “only a reference to universal consciousness,” it is universal consciousness.
That cosmic awareness is our essential nature, so when we experience our true self in meditation, we are contacting and experiencing that pure intelligence within ourselves.
That experience is immediate, intimate, and self-validating, it does not depend on any belief system or mental construct.
