Staying Far From God

In my life's struggles to understand God's Will and Purpose [ 61 years worth of effort ], I've repeatedly come up against my own false opinions, arrogant attitudes, and selfish blindness.

We really can't fight God--it's impossible!

What we do is construct complex barriers to keep Him away.

The True Wonder is that He Remains So Close To Us...

Here's the quote from Reality:

"Arise, O people, and, by the power of God’s might, resolve to gain the victory over your own selves, that haply the whole earth may be freed and sanctified from its servitude to the gods of its idle fancies—gods that have inflicted such loss upon, and are responsible for the misery of their wretched worshippers. These idols form the obstacle that impedeth man in his efforts to advance in the path of perfection."
