Note: This post is continued from part 1.

It is to this paradox that we will now turn. We dance in the paradox of certainty and uncertainty. As we hear of recent tragedies in the world — hurricanes, earthquakes, and last year’s catastrophe in Japan — we enter into a space of desperately grappling with God within the uncertainty.

Where are you God? Where are you within me and within the word?  Within the very recesses of the uncertainty however is a powerful experience of certainty — of the non-dual realization of I Am.  It is in I Am, when I experience the core certainty of self, and therefore of my divinity — of my being loved by God.  This experience is not only not in contradiction to the question, it wells up from the question itself. In the question is God. The question is the answer.
