God is Existence
From satsang with Giten,
19 July, 2018, in Stockholm
“Satsang with Giten was wonderful.”
The philosopher Frederick Nietzsche said in the beginning of the 20th century that God was dead.
God is not dead, but the Christian idea of God is dead.
God is not dead as God is the very ground of existence.
God is the soul of Existence.
Organized religion has always been thinking of God as a person, but this idea has to die.
God is not a person; God is the ground of existence.
Existence never dies, forms come and go, but existence never goes out of existence.
Nothing is permanent in the world of forms.
Bodies die, but consciousness remains.
Prayer to God as a person becomes meaningless, but meditation becomes meaningful.
Meditation means the capacity to be alone.
Meditation means to be so alone that you will start falling within yourself, where the abyss opens, where the inner silence and emptiness open.
The deeper you drown, the more you come to God.
You come near to God as existence, but not as a person.
This meeting with God will be in silence.
