I liked this reply I posted to a thread and decided to share. Enjoy!
The following is my opinion. However throughout the rest of this thread I will speak as if my opinion were fact. It's simply easier to get my point
of view across this way.
God is an impersonal conciousness that permeates and flows through all of existance. We could be thought of as children of God, or as cells in a body.
However you care to interpret it.
I believe in Causality. Those familiar with my threads know I quote it regularly. However, universal laws exist in an attempt to explain an
unexplainable knowledge. For example, the Law As Above So Below, has been split up into something like 3 dozens lesser "laws" among these is the
famous "Law of Attraction." However, all of these laws exist simply to help teach us how to apply the greater law As Above so Below.
So too, the "greater laws" or "Universal Laws" such as Causality are not 100% true. They are simply trying to explain a truth. God is the truth
that exists beyond these laws. God is the existance that the laws are attempting to explain. You can think of God as an ocean, and we are the droplets
that make up that ocean.
The difference between us and God is that we are not fully concious of the fact that we too, are God. All of us perform our various roles in the
interconnection of all. We are a part of God, a part of the interconnection, however we are not the whole.
The greater the level of conciousness of the individual, the greater their influence over the rest of existance. However, as the mind expands to
percieve more, so too does existance expand. The essence of God is creation. Therefore it is constantly expanding, and -changing-. Will there be a
limit of expansion? Yes, but then the form simply changes into something else.
I have a theory that time and space all exist at one single point. However, our minds, our perception, in an effort to put order to this chaos applies
time and space to give us a sequence that we can comprehend and make sense of. Past and future are null concepts that exist to help us learn.
Everything exists only in the present. But that is not to say what has already happened has never occured. form has just changed.
This seems to be contradictory. Form, change, this would seem to indicate time, a change over time. This is decsribed by my inability to comprehend
the absolute truth, and my efforts to explain in a reasonable manner what I am concious of.
When people think of God, some picture Jesus. Some see The Self. Some see nothingness. Some see everything. Some see an old man on a chair. When
interacting with the primal force that makes up and flows through all that exists, our minds give shape to this force so that we can take more from
In 'theory' when one becomes enlightened they would then comprehend everything, and would be God. This is not quite true, in my perception. They
simply enter a state from which they are conciously aware of their true nature and the roles they play. There are indeed stages of conciousness. The
first stage, I believe at this moment to be "no-thought." This is similar to becoming a mirror of "God" and reflecting everything.
As this conciousness evolves, one may become like a "little God" as they then fully rule over the microcosm, whereas the full God reigns over the
Macrocosm of existance. God is the greater, I am the lesser.
At this high level, compassion, or an knowing that compassion is closest to representing for our current understanding. We'll call this Compassion,
with the big C. However it is not compassion, as we know it currently. Compassion will drive you to wish to share this conciousness with others.
However, if you could truely become the True God, you could in theory, awaken everyone. This is not possible however. Even God doesn't have the power
to force his will on us. We're currently in a state that obscures true realization of conciousness. In a way, this obscurity is our will. No one can
force their will upon you. Now, you can be fooled and manipulated into changing your own will, but you cannot force your will on others.
As far as getting bored from "knowing everything" that does not exist at this level. No longer being ruled by the false concepts of time and space,
things do not become tedious. You enter into a phase of observing everlasting change.
We currently exist in a divided state, in which we percieve mainly the physical and the emotional. There exists on another level of the veil, mind and
soul, and conciousness of spirit. As we climb the evolutionary ladder, we pull down another veil that is keeping us from observing the truth, and our
awareness of true existance becomes greater. When we become fully concious as we are meant to be, body, emotion, mind, and soul are all united in
full. At this point then, we are free of reincarnation. At this point however, we do not become "everlasting" in the Judeo Christian sense. Every
now and then in order to keep existance fresh, we are reborn, yet in this rebirth we retain our skills and conciousness from the previous rebirth, and
do not forget or lose what we had previously attained.
The way reincarnation works, we lose a lot of what we gain each reincarnation, how much is lost is determined by by how concious we are.
God is a force that exists everywhere, all the time, in a "present" state of mind. For time and space are not true concepts, the exist simply to aid
our minds as they are now in comprehending nature. As we're behind these veils, we are less capable of percieving the full truth. The fewer veils
block our path the more concious we are.
It is our goal to become like God. To become like our true nature and comprehend things as they were intended to. God does not use us to learn or
experience life, God knows all, and is all of life, and everything else. As we become more concious, we gain greater access to the infinate.
God is a force that in our current form we cannot comprehend. The more of the obscuring veils that shelter us from the truth, the Light, the Creative
Power, the less powerful we are. As our minds expand, we tear down these veils, and gain a more full access to our truth. I hope that this makes
Thank you for tolerating the arrogance of this speech. I hope it helps someone move forward in understanding.
