In the documentary Awake, it is said that "It's not that God is dead, it's that we need to reconceptualize the Divine." Many questions may arise when we think of this Divine: Who is God? Is he or she knowable? Is this force so far away from us that we can merely intellectualize it but not experience it? Is he or she this person up in the sky watching us and waiting to reward or punish us?
For me, even if the totality of the Divine seems unknowable, there are parts that are knowable, if we are open to seeing it in unlikely places, places we've been told not to look, places we've been conditioned to think has nothing to do with God. We look for this Divine that seems out there in here, within us. Often, science and spirituality are believed to be separate, perhaps even contradicting, but not to me. When I learned from Cosmos that with every breath we take, we breathe in as many molecules as there are stars in all of the known galaxies, about 100 million molecules that came from those who ever lived before us, I found that not just to be a fascinating scientific fact but also a highly spiritual phenomenon. With every breath we exhale, it is also said that those molecules are circulated through the air, across continents, for others to breathe in. We are connected with the very air that we breathe, and that makes me think that the guru beyond the beyond may be invisible to us, but it is also closer than we think.
Each person has a different relationship or perception of the guru beyond the beyond. This God has many forms and names, shapes and ways that touch us. All we need to access it is to be open to this force, not to dismiss what it is or is not, and see it manifest outside of our preconceived notions of who or what God is. The Divine is both near and far, removing our veil of misknowing.
