7.6 All things have their life in this Life, and I am their beginning and end.
7.7 In this whole vast universe there is nothing higher than I. All the worlds have their rest in me, as many pearls upon a string.
7.8 I am the taste of living waters and the light of the sun and the moon. I am OM, the sacred word of the Vedas, sound in silence, heroism in men. – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 7)
We live in time and space. Time appears to move in one direction, forward and space appears to be expanding at all times. That’s highly suggestive of all things having originated at a time far distant in the past. Origins beg a cause. That ‘first cause’ can be termed God. According to The Gita, all Western Religions and many other belief systems, God is the ultimate person. He knows and he sees, just like we can. He created it, and us all, for a grand purpose…we can relate with her directly and one-on-one!
The highest ideals and the highest qualities are reflective of the creator. All creation marches towards perfection by accentuating and experiencing these ideals and qualities. That then is also a purpose of it all. God is alive and well, rejoice, fear not and ‘be exceedingly glad’.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM happy and safe because God IS!
