I was gifted with a trip to Africa in 1999. (all expenses paid)
I traveled with a study group lead by Dr. Wade Nobles and Dr. Naim Akbar.
My experience in Africa opened my eyes and my heart and it brought great
joy to my soul to finally get to touch "my Mother" (Africa) and also great sadness to realize how Africans in America have suffered and many are still suffering because of the "Black Holocaust"!
I worked with a healer and I learned a few of the traditional healing ways.
Their ways included prayer, herbs and rituals which those who don't understand say is pagan, backwards and not of God. And this is where I say, "Your God is way too small"!
I am soooooo glad I went with two reknown psychologists because we need them. After going through the dungeons and to "The door of no return" the least likely person found himself possessed with Spirit. To those who only have a set way for God to show up thought , "Uh oh this is bad news". And again I say, "Your God is too small."
Those of us who were open to experiencing African spirituality were judged and I said, "Your God is too small!" Before Christianity, Africans had religion and an awesome culture and way of being. I study cultures, religions and I marvel at the many ways that God shows up in the world and the Universe!
The heavens declare the glory of God. When I see worlds emerging out of black holes and another planet most recently discovered that is like earth. Baby we have just got to know our God is infinite and can never be totally explained or understood.
We have been told, "Greater things than these shall we do and that eyes haven't seen, ears haven't heard ...." yet, too many still attempt to put God in a box or a book.
How big is your God?
My God is huge. My God, the one I know and stay connected to, is in everyone. My God is omnipotence...that means THEE POWER, My God knows EVERYTHING (OMNISCIENCE) !
Breathe on that! EVERYTHING. Whatever I need
to know I ask and it comes. It comes in a myriad of ways so I stay open, receptive, prayerful and mindful. Patiently waiting these days because I UNDERSTAND. (Now I understand)
My God is loving. For years I was stuck with this life-long belief that God was a punisher...God doesn't punish, what we call punishment is just us being out of alignment with the principles and/or laws of God. And, all we need do is get right back in alignment and keep sailing along practicing the Presence.
