Alone

I was thinking, as I often do, about what it means to be “alone”. I mean “all one”, which is where the word “alone” comes from. There are three parts to us as human beings. There’s body, soul and spirit. The body relates to this physical world through touch, feeling, taste, hearing and seeing. The soul relates to feelings, emotions and thought. We connect with people through this part of us hence the term soul ties and soul mates. We pull from past experiences and make decisions through our minds and or memories. Our thinker, feeler and chooser as it were. Our spirit is who we really are and it relates to God. For he is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

That’s why worship doesn’t make sense to our minds..it’s a spirit thing. You really can’t explain faith, you have to exhibit it. Faith in a nutshell is the working out of a belief or conviction in your conduct. (that’s why it’s called faith, you can’t see it; you just know it).

When you feel “all one” or alone, it’s because we are “alone” in the sense that our bodies and souls are isolated from the conversation that God is having with our spirit at that moment. Without the spirit, which is preoccupied with God, the body is empty; abandoned. The body can’t participate because it only knows the language of touch, taste, feel etc. And your soul can’t participate cause it can’t recall what it can’t remember. So you “feel” alone.

This is when God is truly One with us. In most cases, you’re not depressed, you’re “all one”…with Him. And that’s a good thing. For to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. You’re not alone; you’re all one.

John 4:24; Hebrews 11:1; II Corinthians 5:8
