there are alot of soul searching post at ATS and many get bogged down with debate and egotistical posturing concerning god and such
it is a very controversial subject
I will insert a post I made in one of my own threads so that you can read it here and tell me what you think
I make no claims on truth, bottom line is I dont know
Infinity exists, if you do not believe this then our gods are either liars or pretenders. Math also accepts infinity as an absolute. Since infinity
exists, then so do all other things. Thus one can say with certainty that every moment, dream, idea, parallel universe, every possible conceivable
thing place and time has a location where it resides.
The infinite fabric or tapestry of all things is our home, and home to everything else that is. We move in this tapestry from place to place and in
every choice we make we decide where in this tapestry we will end up, from our current perspective we see this as passing through time. Time is
subjective, it looks like we have a yesterday and an unknown tomorrow that has not yet happened, but all things have already happened. All
potentiality is already realized.
This tapestry is infinity and it is all connected. All is one. If you take one stitch of the tapestry away, it would unravel infinity, so every stitch
of this tapestry is interdependent on every other stitch. Each stitch is a singular representation of the whole for with out it the whole is no
What we would perceive as a godlike being, could move through this tapestry at will if they had the mind and sight to do so, and others who we would
perceive as a normal person, could not, but only because they are in their own way. All is one and the normal person has the same potential to walk
the tapestry just as the godlike being, because due to infinity we are one in the same.
The tapestry is consciousness, and consciousness is infinite and the entirety of it we call god. In each of our own heads is also consciousness, a
thread in the tapestry. We are not imperfect, we are not in bondage to sin, but we choose to be due to some books we place more faith in than we do
It isn’t a bad thing or a good thing, for all things are both good and bad. It is the perspective you have that allows you to choose what it will be
for you. Therefore evil may be bad for you, but it may be good for someone who desires it to be so. We are the ones that choose, and that choice moves
us to the appropriate location on the tapestry, according to our action and thought.
There is no life or death, only transition. There is nothing that can be added to us nor taken away from us. Our blindness creates the duality we see
and unity is our salvation.
