There Is No Sacred and Profane: “If Truth is God, then embracing what is, is equivalent to embracing God. No points for blind belief.”

“…there is no sacred or profane. God includes it all … the sacred and the profane. If Truth is God, then embracing what is, is equivalent to embracing God. No points for blind belief. Life and spirituality are not all about trying to negate, or deny, one aspect of Existence, to will it out of Existence and magnify another. God includes it all. And that includes sacred and profane.
“…in larger awarenesses, those parts we call negative, like pain, are seen in larger contexts where they are put in a different, and positive, light. Where they magnify the glory of It All. Or … where they magnify the interest or adventure or the pleasure of it all, like salt to food … or the *fun* of it all … in the many ways that can be meant. And often, in ways that we are completely unable to see ahead of time.
“All the same, becoming more inclusive, having more participation, if you will, means becoming more like that Good, that Mercy, that Compassion, that Love that we find that God is in Totality.
“Yet, the fact that God is all these other good things is, looked at this way, a happy discovery. God is not what we need It to be … something that fills up the lacks or shortcomings we have … like some kind of fantasy to make us feel better. No. God is what is….”
