All religious texts and practices are tools for everyday people to try and experience what a religious experience must be like. All religious Prophecy
try to explain what seeing an actual vision must really be like. Only to us who have not had these direct experiences, they just seem like fantasy
stories. With out the actual vision of heaven all we have to go on are the words of religious dogma. Obviously what mysteries the universe truely
holds cannot be explained in one religion or a certain language or set of symbols. These are merely tools to help us awaken to true reality. It is
doubtful more than a handful will truely awaken each year, or each hundred years.
You cannot come to the realization of reality by constantly building upon beliefs. All religions have something in common, and alot is
borrowed/rewritten/slowly changed over time. But You have to realize that even the original religious ideas were just that - ideas. Try as we might we
will never be able to explain fully the true reality of Everything. It is simply impossible to do. For as soon as you write it down you lose the
original beauty of the truth. As soon as you explain Reality to someone the truth is muddled down by restrictive languages and art.
It is not possible to give someone the full experience; so the prophets only give us their impressions of the truth.
Obviously following this same reasoning, Heaven and Hell are inconciveable. We can guess that being without a body, things are much different. Like
a wet cloud or firey pit are not physical objects like we would imagine here on Earth.
The only true way to know God is to know God as Unknowable. Then you can put your mind at ease. You now know for a fact you will never, in this life
or any other, truely know God. Now all thats left is to enjoy life.
Ok, here we go.
Lets imagine that you, yes you, are God. You are all Existance, all Reality, EveryThing. We will call you by many names such as God but it doesnt
change what you really are. You are a supreme intelligence and contain all Things. Outside of you is no-Thing, as you are every Thing. There is not
blackness outside of you, as blackness is a Thing. There is not even nothingness because that would still be a thing. Apart from you, God, is an
inconcievable void which you cannot know. You can also not know yourself. For without a background you cannot see yourself against it. Without the
blackness you cant see what else there is. It would be like an eye trying to see its self, or a mouth eating its self.
Now because you have no way of seeing youself you need to move your intelligence away from its self inorder to look back on yourself and proclaim -
There is God. So imagine that you are cut into many smaller peices. Your hands and eyes and mouth all split up and scattered. You are no longer
the mass of Everything. Even much of your intelligence has been split up.
Eventually your hands and eyes and intelligence start to spring up in various places. Plants feel the warmth of the Sun and animals Taste and smell
the plants. Dolphins and Ravens and Monkeys and other animals contain plenty of Intelligence. Then along comes Man. Made from You God, and endowed
with your senses, made in your image. Man can look around at all the wonders of life and study it deeply.
Mankind is so good at observing that they break off into groups to concentrate more on Biology, Geology, Astronomy, Physics and so on. He has taken
this whole existance and chopped it into easily identifiable peices. But as he dug deeper he started to see that Biology is heavily depenedant on
Geology, and Geology on Atronomy, and so on. That infact all these seemingly separate fields are interconnected. In fact every Thing everywhere seems
to have come from one original Source.
Finally You (acting as Mankind) can look back at yourself and say There is God.
