The Vastness of Who We Are

Have you ever had this knowing of who we are and where we are from? It is a feeling that is with us from a very young age when we can sense that God is within us and all around us.

To me, this is Religion, our natural way, a knowing of God, of Nature and Humanity.

It is from a place within us where we know ourselves from the Oneness of Everything.

We feel Nature all around us; we feel its rhythms, its colours, its synchronicity, depths and its beauty. We feel it like the warm wind touching our skin, as beams of sunlight bursting through the trees, majestic birds in flight.

Religion is all of this and more, for it is our connection with the All.

Religion is our sacred right. It is not man-made; it doesn’t inhabit a building for it never came from man. It is not an organisation, nor is it contained in scriptures and words.

Religion is much vaster than that.

Our Religion is our connection with ourselves and God, equally together as One.

It is our connection to the grandness and vastness of the Universe and everything within it. It is where we come from, as like us, our Religion is as old as time itself.

We have always known this, who we are and where we are from, and one day it will be known in full by One and All.

470 thoughts on “The Vastness of Who We Are

  1. The vastness and sacredness we carry inside our bodies as being part of the all is so beautiful and amazing and something we have denied of our selves but is always there waiting for us to connect to it and through the way we live being our religion and connection to the truth comes who we really are.

  2. Yesterday I was talking to a friend about this and we were both remembering a time in our childhood when we pondered on the vastness and that there is no nothingness that people were trying to convince us of, because there was everythingness there too, innately in the universe and in ourselves. I love this saying “we are not a drop in the ocean, for we are the ocean in a drop” and we do know it.

  3. When we look at the Universe sometimes it is hard to truly comprehend what we are apart of but when you connect and feel God and the depth that is avaliable and how the more we surrender and allow this Love in the deeper it goes. An infinity of depth, love and our truth.

  4. I love the beauty and rhythmical flow of nature and how it echoes within our hearts too. Surrendering to this rhythm broadens our understanding of the world and also gives us access to a deeper awareness of ourselves and how we in turn interact in life and with everyone else around us. That is the pure simplicity and flow of living from our heart’s connection to the all.

  5. The depth of connection and intimacy with God and everything is not reserved only for Heaven, this is actually normal and therefore the commitment to living and expressing it on earth, will one day return us to this state.

  6. We have all always known the truth of what religion is and therefore it is only a matter of time until we all return to that inner knowing. Religion itself is the return back to our true way, our true essence.

  7. “We feel Nature all around us; we feel its rhythms, its colours, its synchronicity, depths and its beauty. We feel it like the warm wind touching our skin, as beams of sunlight bursting through the trees, majestic birds in flight.” Religion is knowing that beyond the rot and waywardness of our current times, that we are equal to this majesty we see reflected in nature.

  8. When you write about the world like this Susan, it’s clear living in connection to everything is as natural as breathing. Certainly I can testify that living ‘small’ and focusing only on the temporal world is terribly bad for our health.

  9. It is so cool to feel ourselves beyond the bounds of our physical body… it is like letting our whole body breathe in and out… from here I get to feel our relationship with God and the vastness of this.

  10. I remember very clearly being about 12 years old and feeling incredibly homesick and yet I was in my own bedroom at home. It was a desperately empty and isolating feeling which left me feeling empty and anxious. And yet in contrast to this I remember being younger, maybe 4 or 6 – not sure – and feeling the absolute joy and ease of being me in my body with nature confirming me at every turn. I loved everything about it, and still do, but this wasn’t the experience of those around me so I started to follow their lead and look elsewhere for confirmation of me. Big mistake, but fortunately now I have reconnected to the truth of religion and every day deepen my relationship with myself and God.

  11. “Have you ever had this knowing of who we are and where we are from? It is a feeling that is with us from a very young age when we can sense that God is within us and all around us.” Absolutely it’s that knowing and that connection to God, being part of the all, that depth of inner knowing.

  12. We can get so caught up in dillemma and issues that we forget the depth and vastness of the support we are held in.

  13. Is it possible that if we are in truth so vast, we cannot experience the fullness of ourselves through our minds, but can do so through all that is our body and its innate ability to sense the energetic truth surrounding us all?

  14. When I read this I am sensing how much of the acts and beliefs are based on lack of truth in the world.. And how much the truth of religion is nevertheless always known within us, even though we have created a vastness that is no truth at all “about religion”.
    Where you talk about is what we know that religion is inside – the deep true vastness that holds us all equal to the Oneness we come from. Even though we have parted from its way. Hence, it is a matter of re-turn and re-learn to be in full harmony with its sinks (roots) again. An absolute healing way to be part of again.

  15. When I reflect on how life felt when I was very young, life was super simple and the wonder that was ‘outside’ was amazing. I still appreciate the wonder of outside but there is more space to appreciate the enormity of the amazingness of how this extends to universes we have no idea about. As for simplicity, at any time I can choose to keep things simple, which I’m discovering more and more is confirming the wonder of God in my life.

  16. To feel this vastness is magnificent and very humbling at the same time – everything else pales into insignificance.

    1. Thank you Matilda and if we could explore or expand on your revelation.
      Surrendering so we can release the lies to be at one with the limitlessness of the Universe is all we simply have to do. Then to be in oneness with evolution, which is in line of the forever-expanding Universe, we start with being absolutely honest.

  17. “It is our connection to the grandness and vastness of the Universe and everything within it.” Yes, Susan, the more we connect to the divine spark inside us and surrender to our true nature, the more we experience that there is no end to the grandness of who we are and where we come from.

  18. Simple true religion is living in connection with our body. Running and understanding life from our heads is a sure way to feel separate to God.

  19. There is so much to receive in life from the nature of beauty alone to the many treasured moments and interacts with people.

  20. I love how you describe nature as being synonymous with religion, in its symbolism with rhythms, cycles, the brush of wind against your cheek, streams of sunlight and the flight of birds… Indeed, religion (nature) completely surrounds us reminding us of our innermost grandness and sunlight..

  21. This vastness that is shared here is what I have felt in recent days and there is no big “wow’ moment but a simple and steady ease at which to live and love in our world.

  22. “It is our connection to the grandness and vastness of the Universe and everything within it. It is where we come from, as like us, our Religion is as old as time itself.” What a beautiful knowing of who we are shared with simplicity grace and love.

  23. ‘Religion is our sacred right. It is not man-made; it doesn’t inhabit a building for it never came from man.’ – this blows all the myths and lies of institutionalised religion out of the water.

  24. Gosh when you put it like that Susan religion does indeed seem very vast and grand….and the organised religions we currently have seem very small, reduced and incomplete.

  25. The vastness of who we are and where we come from is constantly being reflected to us from the sky at night.

  26. The way to God is through The Livingness or The Way of The Livingness is how we reconnect to God. The vast connection that is available through the universe is simply in the understanding of the constellations as presented by Serge Benhayon and Hercules.

  27. In the last few days I’ve really been feeling the vastness we are all a part of. It’s something I felt as a child when walking to the beach and it’s something I have really felt with the wind in the trees, the way the grass moves and the leaves sound in the breeze all swaying together. There is always so much more a foot than any singular worries that focus in on the world revolving around individuals. How wonderful to feel this expanse and live it in the world.

  28. ‘It is our connection to the grandness and vastness of the Universe and everything within it. ‘ This is an absolutely beautiful description of religion Susan, this makes me want to be religious, whereas in the past with institutionalised religions what was presented – all the rules and dogma meant that I certainly didn’t want to be religious, thank you for writing about true religion and how absolutely beautiful it is.

  29. “It is a feeling that is with us from a very young age when we can sense that God is within us and all around us.” Yes I remember this feeling within me as from an extremely young age, and I always knew I just need to keep the knowing going no matter what, so even though my life took many turns, I always knew God was within us and around us, I never gave that knowing up.

  30. Did you do that thing? Did you fix that up? Did you call that person back? Did you write that book? Did you do that work? There are so many tasks we focus on but this makes us think we are nothing more than a ‘to-do-list machine’. Contrast this with being, living and breathing knowing we are an equal part of the universe’s glory and undertaking our day-to-day tasks knowing this. Talk about a world of diffrrence to how we feel.

  31. When I was younger I often used to sit out in the garden at night and just look up at the stars, and remember feeling that I was almost be enveloped and held by the vastness of the sky. I remember how my father loved to do this too – he would much rather sit in the peacefulness of the garden in the evening than sit in front of the TV. I’ve no doubt we all have a sense however small or remote, that we have a deep connection to the stars and the universe at some point in our lives, as this is a subject that never ceases to fascinate us.

  32. I absolutely know that feeling and what it means for us. We only need to connect to how we feel when we look at baby to know that love is universal and grand.

  33. I was never really a religious person growing up, in fact i had quite the aversion to it. I thought it was restricting and dictatorial, it felt suffocating in fact. I just didn’t get it, I could just feel that there was no love, no love of people or for how we treat each other. That we needed to strive and achieve to get somewhere. Yet the understanding I now have of religion, is that it is all about relationship, certainly relationship with myself and cultivating that, so that i really can be love in the world from the inside of me out.

  34. “Religion is not man made” this is so true, and where we fall down in our relationships with religion, it becomes something entirely separated from what it can be, which is a deep and natural connection to ourselves.

  35. I have glimpsed the incredible vastness of the universe from a place of deep stillness within my body during an esoteric massage session – and the feeling that we are far, far much more than we yet know.

  36. I love feeling how vast we are, how amazing we are without that life gets very mundane and depressing even.
