How I know
I was having a conversation the other day with an individual, and me being one of those things that has a different kind of mind a suggestion was offered.
When I reach a point in life where I need assistance, I be homed in a facility where I can receive the assistance I need. The person I was talking with offered to visit everyday with beads of all colours under the sun.
Thousands of colourful beads mixed all together in a big bowl.
I could sort those coloured beads in to jars and the next day this kind soul would come back, mix the beads from the jars back in to that big bowl and I could do it again. Me being in an altered state of being would not know that I’d done this task the day before and would happily go about sorting my beads.
I said, “bring it on, it will be easy”. I qualified what I said with this, “it will be easy because there are only three colours”, Yellow, Blue and Red.
My remark led to a terrific conversation on colour theory with guess who delivering the theory.
Not to far back from that conversation was a different conversation with the same individual on God. Is there God? How do you know? I was looking for an opening to hold up what is knowledge and what is faith.
That conversation left the person I was speaking with of this about me. I believe. I have faith. I do not have actual knowledge as to the existence of God.
We continued with our colour theory conversation and when finished went on with our separate days.
That same individual and I got talking again the next day and the “God” topic came up again. I was asked how I know there is God.
I’d had a revelation, an epiphany, a holy moment as to how I know there is God after the colour theory conversation.
What I described as to the how I know is this.
I asked as much as stated, “what are the colours of life and where did they come from?”. I said, “you lose any one of those colours and there is no life”.
There are only three colours and if you lose one there is no life. How can losing a colour mean there is no life? It’s really pretty easy, simple stuff.
I described the three colours this way;
Yellow is the sun.
Blue is the water we sprang from.
Red, red, is our lifes blood.
I concluded with this, “God is also consistent”.
You could refute that water is blue. Water is a colourless, transparent, odorless, tasteless liquid that forms the seas, lakes, rivers, and rain and is the basis of the fluids of living organisms.
I ask you take a different perspective. If you’re looking down from the heavens what colour are the oceans?
In the “oh yeah and that too category” I had another revelation. God knows Black and White too. We are shown that God knows Black and White with “The Terminator Line”.
The Terminator Line is the line between light and night. You could also say the line between Black and White.
Where would be without the Terminator Line? Simple stuff. Searing heat on one side of our planet and a frozen wasteland on the other. We’d not exist. There would be no life.
Imagine this with every aspect of your mind. Feel this with every fibre of your being.
You are standing with your feet in the bottom of the river where the good stuff grows. The blue water’s ripples lapping against your knees. Turn your face to the yellow sun and revel in the warmth. Feel your life’s red blood as it flows through your heart. As you step from the river and head for home, as light is becoming night, give thanks.
Imagine and feel where you would be without the line between day and night and any one of those three colours.
What I have related to you is how I know, I just know, there is God.
God is an artist and so am I.
