The Desire For Truth
Laura Silvana Aversano
In referring to the work of the Holy Spirit:
I did not tell you these things in the beginning because I was with you then. Now I am going back to the One who sent me. But none of you asks me, “Where are you going?” Your hearts are filled with sadness because I have told you these things. But I tell you the truth. It is better for you that I go away. When I go away, I will send the Helper (Holy Spirit) to you. If I do not go away, then the Helper will not come. When the Helper comes, he will prove to the people of the world the truth about sin, about being right with God, and about judgment. (John 16:4-8)
The presence of the Holy Spirit inspires in us the fire of creation and brings forth the energies for us to persist in our search for the all knowing. Our hearts are filled with sadness as Christ mentions in that passage because we long for our souls to be filled with this energy. We endeavor to search aimlessly outside of ourselves and bring ourselves at times to utter despair and loneliness. It is many a man who faces such loneliness in search of himself despite all direction pointing to a higher source for comfort. True loneliness is not loneliness at all. The dark night of the soul only exists when your mind has lost the fire of creation that comes from feeling the comfort of the Holy Spirit. I say to you this, when the spark of God comes unto you, let it radiate through your soul. You will never know loneliness again. It is only through God that this grace is achieved. Your desire for God has not left you empty. Your perceptions of loneliness have. Your desire for God has brought you to this place of Divine mercy towards yourself and others. Your loneliness becomes transformed into light and the light guides you back to your source. Follow it. It is the source of all creation.
What holds us back from desiring God? It is our fear. We are taught through many traditions to fear the one true God. There is truth to that. Again, it is how we perceive that truth. To fear God is not to be afraid of His wrath as a consequence of wrong doing. To fear God is not to humble thyself to the constraints of lack of self worth or love. To fear God is to know Him. To fear God is to know ourselves. To fear God is to be in awe and humility of the supernatural power and Divine knowledge that is bestowed unto each and every one of us to make manifest the glory of God within. To fear God is to know that our power comes from a Divine Source of righteousness. It is from this power we develop internal strength to live out our earthly existence. It is from this power that we can source from the Divine intelligence which guides us on our evolutionary path. Through gradual fulfillment of our soul’s desires, our relationship with God moves from an ego centered place to one of extreme contentment and inner peace. The fear speaks to us through the awe and humility received at the splendor of it all. It is within our Divine right to know our God and to love Him. In knowing Him, we embrace ourselves.
