Rather than being what we experience in the world God is all those things which we don't experience.
Like: sympathy, compassion, comfort, consolation, loyalty, faithfulness, trust, and love.
We are trained to think of life as tough and hard, corrupt and treacherous.
We become cynical and world-weary.
We grow addicted to pleasure.
But happiness does not reside in these things.
Happiness only derives from love.
And this is what we experience in our relationships.
But through our relationship with God we experience spontaneous joy and the peace that surpasses understanding.
So do not think that God is what you experience in the world.
God is transcendent, sublime, beautiful.....
But most of all God is Love.
