“For every step you take towards God, God takes 100 steps towards you.” When I think of this phrase, stated by the Dalai Lama, I think of consciously taking those steps while God/Spirit steps a hundred fold towards me. When we are conscious of the existence and presence of the Divine, we are taking a conscious step towards God/Divine/Spirit.
All traditional religions have their own symbols and images that are meant to help us be conscious of the Divine. Some of them are the crucifix (Christian), images of Nataraja Shiva, Ganesha, or Kali (Hindu), the yin-yang symbol (Taoist), images of Buddha (Buddhist), images of Kachinas (Native American), the Mezuzah (Jewish), and the Ankh (Egyptian).
The steps of becoming conscious of the Divine are perhaps the most important piece of our evolution. What do you have in your home or office that helps keep you conscious of the existence and presence of your Divinity?
