This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

God is more real to us than we are to ourselves

At a certain point in our meditations we come upon the realization that it is not God’s existence that confounds us, but our own. We begin to understand that the reason we were so confused is because we mistook God’s question to us as our question to Him. It is no wonder we could not find the answer. God becomes more plausible than my own self. I know Him, but I am not so sure I know me. My existence becomes incredible, and now I am tempted to seek proofs for my own reality which pales when confronted with the Absolute. We cease asking, “Does He exist?” and instead begin to wonder, “How can I exist, given His infiltrating presence in all things including my own consciousness?” It is within this question that we find our answer.
