"Help Us To Find God"
"No One Can Help You There"
"For The Same Reason That
No One Can Help The Fish To Find The Ocean."
I love this quote from Stephen Torroff (also known as the psychic surgeon) this is one of the first quotes I was drawn to many years ago, I think I wrote it down from a cassette recording of a lecture he done in London, which I have unfortunately lost. I used to listen to it often as apart from what he was saying (and doing during the lecture) his voice was one that I found entrancing.
Not knowing what to write next, I went and picked up one of his books on my bookshelf and flicked through, the first part to draw my attention was...
"I believe that we are all a part of God, that we have all come from God and that we are all on a journey back to God. But more than that, we have none of us ever left God. A fish swims in the sea. The sea is above, below, around and within the fish. In every respect, the fish is part of the sea but it swims along quite happily, not realising its true nature. Man is the same. He swims through God without realising his true identity. God is in our hearts and we are in the heart of God. So it follows that we can never truly leave Him." Stephen Torroff
A wonderful quote and one I also believe. Also, this was another instance of Law of Attraction working in my life, picking up that particular book of his and immediately finding that quote which was a longer version of the one I was using.
I had started writing this blog entry several weeks ago, but then got side-tracked with the amazing Hay House World Summit, which was 20 days of listening to interviews with 100 spiritual and health authors. As I wanted to listen to as many interviews as I could, I had not got back to writing this until today. The following was how I had began and is yet another little Law of Attraction incidence...
I was sat drinking my coffee and deciding what to do on my website, I then got side-tracked (or so I had at first thought) because I went to check my emails. One in particular caught my attention with the heading "I sent you 2 boats and a helicopter," I remembered that this was an inspirational story, but couldn't remember the actual story, so I read it and thought, wow that's just what my next blog quote is all about! Here is that story...
I began collecting together positive and inspiring quotes and verse in the mid-90's, a couple of years later I began to write my own spiritual verse and it all began with the simple words of a children's rhyme that just came into my head one day, when I was enjoying a trip through the Oxfordshire countryside on a bus...
Where Is God?
God is in the flowers
God is in the trees
God is in the butterflies
And the birds and bees
God is in the sunshine
God is in the storm
God is in the snow and frost
That makes us wrap up warm
God is in the good
God is in the bad
God is in what makes us happy
And what makes us sad
God is everywhere we look
And everywhere we go
God is our best friend always
Because God loves us so
Another relevant verse was one I wrote based on quotes from the book "Conversations With God" by Neale Donald Walsh.
God Is Communicating With Us All The Time
God is all around you and eventually
If you open your mind you will see
The little things that show God is there
Whenever you need an answer to a prayer
Know that God will answer, if you wait
Have Faith that God will communicate
Be open to God's wisdom everywhere you glance
For nothing that happens in life is by chance
Quite unexpectedly one day
It may come in something you hear or say
Just listening to the radio or watching TV
You'll realise that this was meant to be
The answer may just drift into your mind
God has many helpers who are always kind
You may hear a whisper into your ear
To let you know that God is always near
The answer may take you by surprise
God is communicating right before your eyes
The slightest little thing can happen at any time
You have to be open to see the sign
God will always answer, it's plain to see
For God loves you unconditionally
