I do dimly perceive that whilst everything around me is ever changing, ever dying, there is underlying all that change a living power that is changeless, that holds all   together, that creates, dissolves and re-creates.  That informing power or spirit is God.  And since nothing else I see merely through the senses can or will persist, He alone is.

And is this power benevolent or malevolent? I see it is purely benevolent. For I can see that in the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of darkness light persists.  Hence I gather that God is Life, Truth, Light.  He is Love.  He is the Supreme Good.

But He is no God who merely satisfies the intellect, if He ever does. God to be God must rule the heart and transform it. He must express Himself in every smallest act of His votary. This can only be done through a definite realization more real than the five senses can ever produce. Sense
perceptions can be, often are, false and deceptive, however real they may appear to us. Where
there is realization outside the senses it is infallible. It is proved not by extraneous evidence but
in the transformed conduct and character of those who have felt the real presence of God within.

He is the Supreme Good ~ Mahatma Gandhi
