So after a period of transition, we are all in a very new place. So what is the lesson here? For me, it was to find that - like the title - wherever I go, there I am. And because I am there, God is there. We are inseparable.
Stripping away one's sense of identity from a specific job, a lifestyle, a geographical location, a family arrangement - can be a terribly de-nuding experience! It demands the question be asked - who are you and what defines you?
Here are some fav quotes from MBEddy that help to answer that question:
Goodness never fails to receive its reward, for goodness makes life a blessing. As an active portion of one stupendous whole, goodness identifies man with universal good. Thus may each ....rise above the oft-repeated inquiry, What am I? to the scientific response: I am able to impart truth, health, and happiness, and this is my rock of salvation and my reason for existing. -Miscellaneous Writings, p. 165
Breaking away from the mutations of time and sense, you will neither lose the solid objects and ends of life nor your own identity. Fixing your gaze on the realities supernal, you will rise to the spiritual consciousness of being, even as the bird which has burst from the egg and preens its wings for a skyward flight.
Principle is not to be found in fragmentary ideas. The material body and mind are temporal, but the real man is spiritual and eternal. The identity of the real man is not lost, but found through this explanation; for the conscious infinitude of existence and of all identity is thereby discerned and remains unchanged. It is impossible that man should lose aught that is real, when God is all and eternally his.
