God in Us

“…Only he who feels this kingliness, this divinity of love itself, will become quite free from the secret desire for recognition and gratitude. He knows that such love is the only possible divine attitude towards all beings. For the highest God has nothing above him, but everything under him. His life can only consist in this: that he turns to those that are under him. One has not yet any real divine life within one if one does not feel that God seeks in us also those who need help. Only in the kingdom of love does one find that God is really in us.”

Friedrich Rittelmeyer, Founding Priest of The Christian Community, from his book ‘Meditation’.
