This Week’s Quotation:

As consciousness opens to the spiritual, prayer is also the creative expression of God the Possible through God the Means. It is high vibration resonating through human thought and feeling, and then spoken and acted on in the world. It is God the Possible entering the world through the dual channels of thought and feeling, and creating God the Manifest in the human experience. It is the spiritual moving through consciousness into the physical.

God the Possible Entering the World

David Karchere
Author, Becoming a Sun

As I read this excerpt from my book, it struck me that we don’t have an ideal word for what I attempted to address in this mini-chapter of my book.

There are a lot of words that name a facet of it. The word “will” is one. Religion speaks of “God’s will.” But our understanding of that word tends to be so colored by our experience of human will, often something arbitrary and mentally enforced.

There is the word “urge.” But that word, too, is colored by human experience and all the seemingly random urges that arise for people.

The word I used in the excerpt is “prayer.” I spoke of prayer as an expression of God the Possible.

Does God pray? I don’t think God counts rosary beads or recites the name of Allah. So the word “prayer,” too, brings up the limitations of human experience around the world.

What might it really mean for God to pray over the world? And over you and me? What might God’s will really be? And what truly is God’s urge?

I am opening in these moments to let the reality of God’s prayer, will, and creative urge work through me—to let God the Possible enter the world. As I do, perhaps I’ll have a fuller understanding of what that means.

How about you?

What does it mean to become a sun?

Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.

  1. Yes, Absolutely. Your comments are so welcome and wise. Rather than add more comments about prayer (yours are already just perfect), I join you and all who read this in deep prayer now. In prayer, Tom

  2. I am the one, the means of God the possible.
    It is my prayer, each one’s prayer, that brings the means by which God can act through us, to see through our eyes, speak through us, think through our minds and feel through our hearts of love. Active expression in loving presence of His Presence through me, through us, creates the means .

    The mind, formally, has tried to figure all of this out and how it works. It works because love leads in the intuitive knowing that my love and my prayer comes through me as the means of God’s Presence on earth through me.

    Thank you for your words, David.

  3. It occurs to me that the story of creation in the book of Genesis might be regarded as an account of God’s prayerfulness. Each segment of the story begins with the little three letter word LET, as in let there be light! And presto…there was light.Could it be that prayer, then, is a process of letting what is present in the invisible realm be manifest in earth? I plan to explore this “possibility” in the days to come. Rather than asking God for something I would like to see manifest, I will instead use the magic word and…LET it be!

  4. “Thy will be done…” How does that work? What is God’s will? In my experience it is about spiritual pioneering, a creative consciousness open to the possible. What is possible, is a lot more than I know, it is so much more than what is visible. The possible is with God, and human beings are the instruments for making it visible.

    As a designer I have learned about resistance in the material I work with. I have to align myself with certain factors, not force my own will, but discover what can become of our interaction. Also working with people, something new can emerge through me when I am the instrument and God is the possible.

  5. Thank you for your blog. It is my prayer too, that I and everyone in my community open to New possibilities. I notice how quickly habits set in. How much more exciting and vibrant Life can be when we remain open to this Universal paradigm.

  6. We are the active agents of prayer, not merely the passive recipients. Yes, God prays, through me and you.

  7. Thank you Jerry – I love your response – We ARE the active agents of prayer…..and we are its recipients – the Circle of Life…..
