Let's explore something really fascinating this week. Let's look at the place in the universe in which God resides; the location in which God exists. Many people believe that God is everywhere, but do not believe that God resides inside of them. They may say this out of humility, but actually it is the height of arrogance to imagine that God exists everywhere in the Universe except in you.
All through my life I have been afraid. Fear has ruled much of my experience. I learned to be afraid as a little child. I was taught to be afraid by my parents and others in my environment.
I learned to be afraid of the things that my parents were afraid of. I learned to be afraid of the things that my family was afraid of. I learned to be afraid of the things that the people around me and in my culture and in my country were afraid of. I became afraid of those things whether I had a direct reason to be afraid of them or not. My reason for being afraid of things was that other people were afraid of things. I assumed that if they were afraid of them that I should be afraid of them too.
