The Eternal is not "on high" because God is literally above us. Rather, the Eternal is greater (higher) because it is our source. And so, it greater than the sum of it's parts.
It is important for us, therefore, to remember that whenever anyone thinks they are above or better than others, or whenever our ego tries to convince us that we are better, we must remember that we are part of the One. Just as the roaring waves are part of the sea and the seas are part of the Divine, we are a part of the Divine. Keeping this perspective will enable us to steer clear of the ego's traps and focus instead on the important issues that connect us with our Divine Source no matter what we are doing.
