A religious seeker visited a spiritual Teacher.
"Sir, how does one experience God at all times?"
"Do you walk in the experience of air?"
"Do you remain conscious of the air?"
"Does the air cease in your not being aware of it?"
"Likewise, is your experience of God."
"Everyone is experiencing God at all times, as everyone alive experiences air at all times."
"Then, Sir, why should we do spiritual practices, if we already have the experience of God?"
"The air does not seek a conscious relationship with us--God does."
Part of the cultivation of Union with Sacredness is growing into a consciously-known Union, wherein one senses the Presence of Grace in the sense of the absence of Grace. This Union is not a consistent feeling of Presence as present in any particular way, but the conscious Knowing of that Presence in all ways. Ultimately, one transcends the duality of "presence" and "absence" in Pure Faith, which does not require any particular sense of Presence being present.
