These varying levels of understanding have led to all the different sects and denominations on this planet. Of course, those embracing each of these usually feel their understanding of God is complete, which unfortunately leads to attempts to make their view the only view. Instead, as Cady says, it only results in their metaphorically crying through their actions, "Ho! Everyone, come and view my narrowness and my ignorance!"
To fully embrace the presence of an indwelling God in you and your life, you must lose sight of differences between us. The closer we come to recognizing the Father in us, the closer we will be to each other, just as happens when the spokes of a wheel near the hub.
There is only one Truth, one God. How we each perceive the Truth depends on how much one rejects any view other than his own as the only path. It is the seeking of something higher than one's present conscious self that underlies all paths to God in whatever form this takes for you.
Knowing that the Holy Spirit, the indwelling Christ, the perfect divine idea of Man, lies at the center of every person binds us all together in Spirit. In Unity we often say, I behold the Christ in you." This is an effort to affirm our Oneness with each other. Keep your eye "single." Focus on God as your Source. At the same time, do not feel that recognizing God as principle, operating as unchangeable law precludes knowing God within us as a "tender, loving Father-Mother."
For God to make manifest in our lives the things which have been promised as waiting for us, we must acknowledge that we often fail to recognize "His indwelling and His power."
"God (Father-Mother) is a present help in time of need; but there must be a recognition of His presence, a turning away from human efforts, and an acknowledgement of God only (a single eye) before He becomes manifest."
