In the Bible, Jesus says in Matthew 16:24, “If any of you will come after me, then take up your cross and follow me.” Some believe this to mean just following what the Church has to say. But, I believe one of the greatest blessings if not the greatest blessing of all – is to finally learn God’s name and to share that with the world. After all, we are going to come face to face with God at some point, right? And, we will surely come to know God in a way that is much more real than what the dogma of the church says, right? Indeed. I know this sounds bizarre, but I believe with all of my heart and soul that the true name of God is OM. I believe there is truth in language. OM is the essence of the word MOM. OM is the essence of the word HOME. OM is the essence of the word Omnipresence. OM is the essence of the word Omnipotence. OM is the essence of the word Omniscience. OM is the essence of the word Omega. Patanjali says in his Yoga Sutras (1.27) that OM is the Name of God. Coincidence? No way. God is right here waiting for us to discover his true name and to spend time with him by meditating on and contemplating his name, since He is Spirit and our best union with God is through this Divine Sound. My way of following Jesus (Yeshua) is by treading this path of OM Yoga & OM Meditation. We have come from God and we all will return to God. I hope this blog helps you to cultivate your faith and helps you to overcome some of the divisive teachings of the church. God is One. God is OM. Amen.
