The love of God, unutterable and perfect,
flows into a pure soul the way that light
rushes into a transparent object.
The more love that it finds, the more it gives
itself; so that, as we grow clear and open,
the more complete the joy of loving is.
And the more souls who resonate together,
the greater the intensity of their love,
for, mirror-like, each soul reflects the others.
From “The Divine Comedy” by Dante
When I think about the ‘substance’ of God, I consider this idea: before the creation of the Universe, there was not anything but God. Genesis 1:1-4 reads:
In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while the Spirit of God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be Light”; and there was Light. And God saw that the Light was good; and God separated the Light from the darkness.

Whatever the feeling is, feel it deeply, love it, appreciate it, be grateful for its guidance. It’s YOU showing you the way to your joy. – Teri Wilder (www.teriwilder.com)
We all carry messages for each other. We are the living Spirit of Truth, the Word of God made flesh. Your life is a message, and that message is important, for you carry a Divine Idea within you that longs to be given conscious expression.

Let your Word, your Message, be known today, Angel. Speak your Word of Truth, declare your Goodness, and share the Blessing that YOU ARE with all of us.
Our true nature is like a precious jewel: although it may be temporarily buried in mud, it remains completely brilliant and unaffected. We simply have to uncover it. – Pema Chödrön
Emma Curtis Hopkins, New Thought pioneer and Teacher of Teachers, tells us, “There are three ways of dealing with the principles announced in Truth. There is the deep thinking which the mind exercises respecting them. There is the speaking them forth which we do not hesitate to do. There is the careful recording of them, which is writing down what we know of them. The next is living them, which we are sure to do if we think, speak, and write them. It is by faithfully doing all these things with Spiritual doctrine that we accomplish the works of the Spirit in us.”
