@Busby

it is not exactly true God is not showing himself. Yes most of the time he somekind "hides" as if he would avoid us. But look at this: youtube: miracle of damascus part 10 (from minute 3:45) and miracle of damascus part 11 and part 12. Type in on youtube and look for yourself.

Isn't that showing himself?

Concur also.

It's also a Truth I've personally "experienced" although only in flashes/time periods.

It's not a matter of asking or begging God to make this reality go away, for it takes time to unpack the layers we have collected over time. We cannot return to God and become any wiser if our issues were fixed over night. God is not tyrannical.
A great way of blaming the 'victim'. We are impure, not worthy, not deserving to see or experience God until we have changed in a particular way.

A God that cannot, or does not show himself to us, AS WE ARE right now, with all our faults and error we may have, is in my opinion not deserving any respect.
He is the powerful one, the omnipotent, and it is a basic principle that to advance the whole the impetus must come from the strong, not the weak.

markings,

Sorry.......but the impetus for help must come from those in need of help. I saw in the news this morning that the richest 26 people in the world have an equal wealth to the 3.8 billion poorest people on earth. It is hardly their priority to save the world. IMO, God is a neutral God until we approach HIM.

Just a thought ... what if it is the other way around, meaning, why do we not show ourselves to God?

What do you expect when you talk about "God showing himself"? Do you want fireworks, burning bushes, angels flying around, a thundering voice in the sky?

Surely the Divine is present all around us and within us, right now. We cannot blame the Divine for not showing Itself just because we lack the vision to perceive what is right in front of us. Perception of the Divine is a state of consciousness, a state of Being.

Peace.
