Our Heavenly Father’s Presence in the Present Moment

Our divine Father welcomes and embraces us whenever we return to the present moment. The present moment is our true home that transcends geographical location, where the Presence of Divine Unconditional Love dwells. Our heavenly Father will never leave us nor forsake us.

The mystery of the universe

It is interesting to see ourselves as cosmos made conscious, seeking to understand ourselves through life.
