From our affirmation for March: "Divine Wisdom flows through me easily."
How do people experience spirituality? The answer might be best summed up by the Sufi poet Rumi when he writes, "There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground." What he means is that there are countless ways to experience the Divine.
One of those ways is the relationship that we have with Divine Intelligence. We say that we live in an intelligent universe, and that, therefore, all creation is infused with that intelligence. Which would include us—you and me.
As it relates to people, we often think of this intelligence first, or primarily, or maybe even exclusively as mental intelligence. But it is much more than that. It infuses not just our minds, but also our bodies, our hearts, and our souls. All that we are is infused with this intelligence. Every cell of our physical bodies, every thought, every breath, every inspiration and dream and desire exists within that Divine Intelligence that is the very mind of God.
