There is a significant quality that develops from personal experiences in a society where conversations regarding the presence of God frequently revolve around academic disputes and philosophical arguments. It is through these very emotional interactions that people come to have a firsthand understanding of God's existence. This knowledge is rooted on a concrete relationship with the divine and transcends the world of intellectual understanding.

This connection is not the outcome of merely logical reasoning. Rather, it takes the form of a physical force that resonates throughout the body and spirit. When one is able to connect with the divine, a strong feeling of being shielded and held by a compassionate spirit that defies human comprehension arises. It is the understanding that we are not on our own and that a benevolent entity is guiding and assisting us on our personal journeys.

These individual encounters with God are extremely subjective and intensely private. Every person's road to union with the divine is as unique as their outlook on the world. These interactions create beliefs and confirm the existence of God in our life, whether via prayer, meditation, being immersed in nature, or performing deeds of charity. We go on a spiritual journey that brings us closer to the divine by accepting and recognizing these individual experiences.

[Kelly Boys, Mindfulness Trainer] - I personally know there is a God through the same way that I know what truth is. It's the felt sense in my body when I'm able to connect with the divine. And I know that there is this benevolent being that is somehow caring for or holding all of us. And it's not the kind of intellectual knowledge but it's just contact with the truth that we're not alone. And it's one of those things that is confirmed inwardly by me and I do think that we all experience that in our own way. So for me, it's not an intellectual thing, it's an experiential thing.
