The experience of the self-sustaining eternal life of God immanently established in the consciousness, so that self-awareness, identity, meaning, and purpose is established in God's immanent self-sustaining life, is habitation in the coming of the Kingdom of God into human history.

Taking up habitation in this different way of being in the world often results in people being drawn out of the process of identification with and participation in outwardly established institutional forms and teachers to guide and inform their relation to God and their relationships and interactions with other people.

In this different way, the immanent presence of the self-sustaining life of God is sufficient to guide, inform and comfort people without reference to or regard for outward religious, political, or social constructs.

During this particular time of troubles in the world, the immanent presence of the self-sustaining life of God, in our consciousness and conscience, is the source of our comfort and our witness of heavenly being, even during the turmoil of today. In the self-sustaining life of God, some people are drawn out of looking toward outwardly established institutions and leaders to guide,inform and nurture spiritually. The self-sustaining immanent presence of God inshining upon consciousness, becomes our institution and leader, as the outward forms come to an end in the light and power of the Life itself within.
