The universe - the stars and the planets - are God's body.
And just as our bodies function autonomically - i.e. without our conscious intervention - so does the universe function.
But we have a consciousness, a mind, and a heart.
And so does God.
We are trained to think of ourselves as our mind.
Our eyes are located in our head and we are trained to identify with our intelligence through our education.
But God is in our heart.
We cannot love without love.
In the end life is not so much about the state of our mind as the condition of our heart.
