Every time we act, we are announcing God’s presence

by Michael Ketterhagen

Every time we do something, we are participating in the actions of God. Our every decision can be considered a “God-decision” or “God-action.” It is just a matter of realizing the nature of our lives and the reality of God’s presence in the concrete, physical world.

Every action we perform must include three components: an actor, the process of the action, and the receiver of the action or its consequence. These three “energies” are called “gunas,” in Sanskrit. They are the forces of all physical activity in reality, according to the Yoga Tradition.
