David, Auckland Meditation
I never went to church growing up. My parents were not Christian and I never read the Bible.
So, naturally I didn’t believe in God and I also didn’t know anything about Jesus. I also wasn’t interested in the Bible as I thought it wasn’t really cool to be Christian.
Later on in my 20’s I read the ‘God Delusion’ by Richard Dawkins and was convinced God didn’t exist.
However, when I was 22 years old I suffered from a manic episode and was taken to hospital. I was put into the intensive care unit and put on a heavy dose of medication. The doctor told me I had bipolar disorder. I found myself in a mental health ward with other patients who had schizophrenia, and other mental illnesses.
I remember an older patient at the time showing me the Bible and saying “this will get you through”. I was a bit angry he said that because I didn’t believe him at the time.
The manic episode was such a shock to me and just getting through each day was hard. My episode was followed by depression and anxiety. Kind of like an extreme high, followed by a big low.
A few years later I had another big manic episode and was put back into hospital again.
It was at this time I was given a copy of the Bible and I started reading. I found the stories very interesting and I liked the poetry and words. I started to think maybe Jesus did exist 2000 years ago.
For 8 years I lived with my diagnosis as “bipolar”. I had tried many things to escape from the suffering but nothing worked. I had tried meditation, such as meditation CD’s, and breathing meditation with a group of people. However, these forms of meditation didn’t fix my sleep or mood problems.
At the age of 29, when things couldn’t get any worse I found a method that does work. Once I started this meditation, I started to understand what God is.
God is the Universe.
In Christianity, it says God is within you, and Heaven, which is God’s land is within you.
When you discard your karma, habits, and body, only the mind of God remains. When you are born from here, God is within you and the Land of God is within you.
So, the answer to the question is: Yes, God does exist. God exists within you.
God has a Body and Mind. The body of God is the Holy Spirit and the mind of God is the Holy Father. This existence has existed forever and is eternal and imperishable. It is a non-material living existence.
I found a method that enables you to find God within and truly live. I hope this video helps you.
