Have you ever had someone ask you the ultimate question ," Do you believe in god? "

Well I did and I couldn't come up with an answer at the time. I do not practice any religion or truly believe in any religion. There are a lot of great religions out there so why should I choose one over another, let alone anybody. I've tried many dif meditating techniques and keep an open mind and still no answers from god. So what am I to believe, every religion someone claims to of heard and talked to god. Someones' gotta be wrong, right? The universe is filled with infinite possibilities god is small, god is tall, god is everywhere yet nowhere. I started thinking to myself what makes a god a god, and there are no wrong answers to that question . With that in mind if god is whatever I come up with , then I must be god. We are all our own god


My only true belief is self everything else is faith and wishful thinking

I am not God. If I were, the world would be a different place. And you aren't God either. I am very sure of that.

Why do you deny the possibility of Omnipresence?

The ocean is made up of drops of water. Not one drop of water is an ocean, yet an ocean can't exist without multitudes of drops of water. That's the way I see it, and explain the "We are God" philosophy. We are all part of the collective body that is God.

I was taught we all have god within us and I believe that the spark of life is God's unification with us until we die and reincarnate into something or someone else.

As you say there are a lot of religions out there to choose from but I do think many of them are used as rallying points for hatred and superiority complexes about a relationshjip with someone they can't communicate with.

Then all the criminals, murderers, rapists and pedophiles are all God as well. That's interesting....and also nonsense.

Yes, God encompasses things that don't appear to be good, like death, as well. And, I've been told by Christians here on ATS that Christianity is a non-dualistic religion. Do you agree with that?

After many years I came to the conclusion that no-one can give you the answer because you are relying on their truth from experience and that can go from one extreme to the other as you have no doubt noticed. Only you can can find the truth - your truth. I also realized after a long time that we have been blinded and deafened and it can take some time to discover what you are looking for with relation to meditation. Rest assured though that what you seek is there - your truth, and you will ultimately hear and see it eventually.

You have asked a number of questions and it is difficult for me to decide on exactly what information you seek. Maybe be a little clearer with the questions you are asking as some of them over lap and by asking one question you will also discover the answers to others you may have.

It's late here so I am off to bed, good luck with your journey.

I fully believe in a supreme God. Humans are little pieces of light made by the creator but even all put together, we don't equal God. God is separate and above all creation.

Humans are notoriously stupid. If humans = God, then the multiverse is in serious trouble.

I don't want anyone to follow me. I'm a fallible human and prone to mistakes.

No. All humans don't equal "GOD". All of everything that exists, did exist, will exist and never existed is all "GOD". IMO

God is everything, not nothing.

You see, if God only exists outside of creation/existence, then God doesn't exist in the only reality of existence that we know. Therefore, it would impossible to know God or if God exists or if there is one God of infinite gods.

What I seek nobody can answer but myself, I feel I answered the question. Do I believe in god? My answer is my only true belief is to believe in myself everything else is faith and wishful thinking so no I don't believe in god but I have faith and wishful thinking that god does exist. I haven't givin up hope god is out there and it might be me.

OOOOOOOH. So in that construct, humans would be God's dark side ...


Sorry windword, I'm not seeing it. I know God is in everything and He (it) holds everything together but I think that's a one way relationship. I don't think we are all God ... but God is in us holding us together.

Of course, that thought could easily change.
The more I learn, the more my thoughts change.

Do you believe in god?


Yes

Only you can answer that question for yourself.




I've tried many dif meditating techniques and keep an open mind and still no answers from god.


Did you ask any questions?




So what am I to believe, every religion someone claims to of heard and talked to god. Someones' gotta be wrong, right?


Not if they say they talked and heard a voice telling them things.

Have you heard the saying God works in mysterious ways?

Those mysterious ways is a language one can learn to understand through observation of nature, both environmental and human.





The universe is filled with infinite possibilities god is small, god is tall, god is everywhere yet nowhere. I started thinking to myself what makes a god a god, and there are no wrong answers to that question . With that in mind if god is whatever I come up with , then I must be god. We are all our own god


and we are the universe and each other all at the same time.




My only true belief is self everything else is faith and wishful thinking


But if the self is God and god is everything so is the belief in yourself just wishful thinking?

I'd like to offer a few ideas posited by Alan Watts. Alan Watts was an Episcopal Priest, philosopher, writer, speaker and self-proclaimed "spiritual entertainer", best known for his interpretation and popularization of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Instead of paraphrasing, I figure it best to let the source speak. Please bear in mind that these quotes are from spoken lecture.

"You don’t understand the basic assumptions of your own culture if your own culture is the only culture you know." - Alan Watts on "Seeing Through the Net."



Now, it's very difficult--you can very easily slip into the state of consciousness where you feel you're God; it can happen to anyone. Just in the same way as you can get the flu, or measles, or something like that, you can slip into this state of consciousness. And when you get it, it depends upon your background and your training as to how you're going to interpret it. If you've got the idea of god that comes from popular Christianity, God as the governor, the political head of the world, and you think you're God, then you say to everybody, 'You should bow down and worship me.' But if you're a member of Hindu culture, and you suddenly tell all your friends 'I'm God,' instead of saying 'You're insane,' they say 'Congratulations! At last, you found out.' Becuase their idea of god is not the autocratic governor. When they make images of Shiva, he has ten arms. How would you use ten arms? It's hard enough to use two. You know, if you play the organ, you've got to use your two feet and your two hands, and you play different rhythms with each member. It's kind of tricky. But actually we're all masters at this, because how do you grow each hair without having to think about it? Each nerve? How do you beat your heart and digest with your stomach at the same time? You don't have to think about it. In your very body, you are omnipotent in the true sense of omnipotence, which is that you are able to be omni-potent; you are able to do all these things without having to think about it.

When I was a child, I used to ask my mother all sorts of ridiculous questions, which of course every child asks, and when she got bored with my questions, she said 'Darling, there are just some things which we are not meant to know.' I said 'Will we ever know?' She said 'Yes, of course, when we die and go to heaven, God will make everything plain.' So I used to imagine on wet afternoons in heaven, we'd all sit around the throne of grace and say to God, 'Well why did you do this, and why did you do that?' and he would explain it to us. 'Heavenly father, why are the leaves green?' and he would say 'Because of the chlorophyll,' and we'd say 'Oh.' But in he Hindu universe, you would say to God, 'How did you make the mountains?' and he would say 'Well, I just did it. Because when you're asking me how did I make the mountains, you're asking me to describe in words how I made the mountains, and there are no words which can do this. Words cannot tell you how I made the mountains any more than I can drink the ocean with a fork. A fork may be useful for sticking into a piece of something and eating it, but it's of no use for imbibing the ocean. It would take millions of years. In other words, it would take millions of years, and you would be bored with my description, long before I got through it, if I put it to you in words, because I didn't create the mountains with words, I just did it. Like you open and close your hand. You know how you do this, but can you describe in words how you do it? Even a very good physiologist can't describe it in words. But you do it. You're conscious, aren't you. Don't you know how you manage to be conscious? Do you know how you beat your heart? Can you say in words, explain correctly how this is done? You do it, but you can't put it into words, because words are too clumsy, yet you manage this expertly for as long as you're able to do it.'

Many of Alan Watts' lectures are available on YouTube for the curious student.


Cheers,

P.S. When someone says, "I'm God," I respond: "Of course you're good. That's where the word comes from. Welcome home. Now get back to creating!
We've got work to do taking care of people--especially our elders, children, and families.


"How I stand in the world,
Does not change overnight,
The roots of the family tree go deep,
And I must dig to see the light."
