Hi beforetime,

Welcome,

Yes we are aware of this but we are also taught to seek knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom...

Wisdom opens the Door of Love and Love opens the Door to The Life of God which Light.

The Life of God then opens The Door to The Father and to The Ancient of days which is My root.

During The Time I was dead to others in this World I was being taught by the True Mind, In the Light...

To Humankind namely Doctors it was more than 30 minutes I was so called Brain Dead.

Your comments are very welcome and are valued as every person on in this world has a contribution, because in this thread it draws out our true feelings and we approach questions as a child as taught by Jesus.

This Thread is Not for argument, but a sharing of our experiences and a place to freely express our most inner thoughts and feelings....

I at least do Not pretend to know, but am a witness of The Light.

Peace be with you "beforetime"

Hi reeree2702,

A warm welcome to the Thread...

Yes I would agree with most of what you have said.

Not sure though about Quote:-

"Man has been on this planet for about 35,000 years or so and we still have not come up with a satisfactory answer to this question."

I will give my thoughts on this further down the line, perhaps in another thread.

But remember I am only a Little one even though I am old in human years.

For Now though, the Question is more directed to peoples interpretation or Definition of The "Word" God....

I have my story to tell, as I have mentioned many time before, but I want to hear what others including yourself, have to say for now, as every person no matter what their beliefs, have much to contribute on this subject and the quest for The Truth...

Your comments are also much valued, as you are a part of the All as each and every one of us are.

We are of The One as there is Only One for I know No Other besides The One.

In defining the word "God" comes from the word "good".
Taking away one of O's God is what you get.
GOOD-(O)=GOD (O=One)
God is good that is one. One is yourself

That brings us to the Yang. The word Devil. If you
take the D out of "Devil" you get "evil".
(D)-Devil=evil (D)=Do
Do evil you shall join the Devil

In life you can either do good or do evil.
I rather be wit God not with the Devil

a political definition of the word "GOD"

G=Government : the act or process of governing
O=Ordinance : an authoritative decree or direction
D=Department : a major administrative division of a government

GOD is always watching us. In GOD we trust. Amen

Amen= American people

Yeah,and if you spell God backwards you get Dog.And if you spell Evil backwards you get Live.


The word Devil is the English translation of a Greek word (diabolos) meaning accuser or slanderer.An accuser can be good or evil.

Evil and Devil do not have the same origin and are not connected,just as the words Woman and Man do not have the same origin and are not connected.

God is from the Proto-Germanic word 'gudan' which means to invoke/invocation prayer.

Theos is the Greek word for god or deity.Deus is the the Latin version.

Hi one2hate,

Welcome to the thread...

Interesting.... As I have never looked at it in this way, even though I play with the Geometry of written languages.

Thank you for your input and I will toss the concept around in the Mind for a while and see what the reaction is.

Hi jakyll,

You have just answered the question for me I guess it just makes us aware of the Opposites again and the structure of things whether be immaterial or not,
even in the thinking of Human Primates...

Good Contribution. Logic can be humorous at times... I guess it shows Life or The True Mind has a sense of Humour, even though it can be difficult to understand at times, being even dryer than mine at times... LOL..

Long time lurker, first time poster. I hope I don't do anything wrong.
That said, I'm sure I will upset 'someone.'

I was reading the Scole Experiment, and there's a part in there where someone asks about "God" to the entities/spirits (please suspend your opinions on that subject - Scole/Spirits/Entities etc. - for the purpose of this post - it's not the point I'm trying to make). The answer that comes back actually brought me closer to understanding it that I'd ever been (having grown up without any formal religion).

The basis was that "God" is a bigger concept than we are able to comprehend. Kind of like when we see two stars in the sky - the distance between the two is greater than we have any Earthly reference to. Sure, we can put a number to it, but do we really have a scale of "light years" that we can mentally compare it to? No. We can do the math, but it's relatively meaningless to us as far as understanding the true enormity of the numbers. Same goes for "God" in my mind. It's possible that there's some kind of enormous force/power out there that is holding the universe together, but can we really understand it? The quest to understand it is where the religions of the world spring forth.

There are many religions/sects that have tried to personify their deities - possibly to make them easier to understand. However, I have yet to be convinced that there is true understanding of "God" anywhere. I'm not sniping at anyone's faith here, but pointing out the limitations of my own understanding and research. If you believe, then I actually have a modicum of envy. I really wish I could. I don't believe that any one religion has it right, and I also believe that none have it all wrong.

jmp made a comment above - "God is good."
My late mother used to say that a lot - especially near the end of her life. I used to think it quite odd as she was a lifelong spiritualist, and not a Christian. I thought maybe she was hedging her bets, as it were. Now I kind of get it.

You will receive a very wide range of answers to your question, simply because the belief of God is a personal requirement - and each person has different needs.

The obvious asnswer is not one that most would wish to hear. People are generally fearful of the unknown, particularly if they are exposed to it - and even more so if they are alone. Belief in an all-powerful God who loves us and has control of the 'unknown' can be a comfort to us.

When God appears to let us down, we say to ourselves that 'he' is more concerned with the 'bigger picture' and we could never understand the plans God has for us.

Your God will always be beyond your understanding. That is how you define your God.

In other words, as has been suggested on other ATS threads - God is your 'comfort blanket'.

Hi letthereaderunderstand,

Another script of Excellent comments from you, which require answering.

I know your comments were for another but I thought I may
be able to contribute a little here myself here.

But Remember though I can only speak from my experiences though
I can't speak for anyone else, I am just a small one.

Quoting from your comments if I may:-

[ the truth of that message become understood in that "to
the least of these so also have you done unto me"? ]

The world or universe is I understand, produced in the body of
The “Man Child” or “Son of Man” from God through The Christ.

Even though humankind has presented the writings today, as
though it is a big exam by God, to see if you are worthy or not,
to go to sugar candy mountain, or sent down to old nick, for a touch of burning, I found this to be complete rubbish, when I experienced Death
in 1973.

People seem to have preconceived ideas, as to what will
happen when they or you and me die as though to tell God what happens,
when you can’t breath any more or we bleed out.

What I say to people is... “What you expect will happen won’t happen
and what you don’t expect to happen shall happen.”

I found No condemnation on exiting this program called Earth.

I know that Not One Soul is Lost, as Christ does Not fail in anything.

If one child was to be lost, then Life or Christ has failed and I
do not accept this is possible.

This is why He is Savour... to save or retain. All is retained through The Man Child and our Christ.

There is only One Christ and That Christ is in All Souls that have been Retained or Saved.

The rebirth of "The Man Child" in our Souls, is a Stage of the Creation program of The Souls.


Quoting from your second comment if I may:-

[ Would they see what "Veil" is torn in the "temple" from top to bottom when he says "into your hands I commend my spirit"? ]

Having experienced death, I understand this is done when retracting back from the program, you call Earth.
We are then in the position of the Outer True Mind.

This shift is really a state of Mind.
Nothing to do with the Human primates brain, but is to do with the True Mind.

We are children of God, I speak of the Soul and True Mind and Not the flesh of the program.

Child meaning little one and “Father” being the Male part of The Outer which is Greater than the Little one of The Greater one. This is why Jesus said I Go to my Father. In other words the Inner True Mind becomes the Outer True
Mind. I speak referring to the observation of Creation, whether from The Inner True Mind (Child) or from the Outer True Mind (Father or male part), or previous one.


Quoting from your third comment if I may:-

[ Would they understand why water and blood dispersed? ]

Blood is of the Flesh and there is another Blood that is of The Christ which is “Light”.

Water is also of The Flesh and there are other waters of The Christ in the Soul.

The Waters of Christ is in fact known as "The Face of The Deep".

Note in The Genesis Chapter 1.... the Face of the deep existed before the earth had shape or form so the waters referred to here are Not the Seas but later in the text primates change this to seas as they have no understanding in the translation of text today and as you know understanding has changed over thousands of years.



Quoting from your fourth comment if I may:-

[ Would they see the truth simply for what it is and that God choose the simple things of the world to confound the wise? ]

This part of the process in releasing the True Mind from the Inner concept, (observation) to the Outer....

Quoting from your fourth comment if I may:-

[ Would they understand why the meek inherit the earth or what earth is? ]

Yes...

I shall elaborate on this if I may in my next reply to you and answer the other comments...

[ Would people understand who is GOING to the cross with a HOLLYWOOD of thorns around their heads?

Would they understand why Jesus is saying, "Forgive them father for they know not what they do"? ]

Hi Badgered1,

Welcome to the thread...

I enjoyed reading you comments and hope to read more in the Future.

In defining God is only one part and is of knowledge and understanding...

I suppose it is a bit like mechanics and cars.

There are Mechanics and there are drivers.

Both are required.

All of us are of The One and none of us can change this fact.

So all thoughts are profitable to the understanding of our root which is God.

But what is God?

I am not asking about what he does or has done.. as I am past this stage and others before me, have also passed this stage and others that haven't passed this stage, shall pass this stage anyway at their own pace and in their own time.

Thank you once again and looking forward to more of your valued comments....

Hi Aspie

Thanks for your time, but it is the holes we want to know more about...

After all All is created in holes..

Everything exists in a hole, the same shape as the contents of the hole. or object in its own hole.

If there wasn't a hole there, any object could not be there its self, as something else would be there instead....LOL..

Please don't be impatient and share your thoughts with us....

God is human-like, or anthropomorphic. Like the "old man in the sky" or "Santa Claus for adults". I don't just mean the Christian god, who "created man in his image", but all gods.

I say this because people have this gut instinct that tells them "all complex things have a creator". A wristwatch has a creator, so we assume the universe has a creator. In my opinion, this instinct is wrong. The only reason we have this instinct is because we have become so accustomed to seeing man-made things and we extrapolate and assume that anything surpassing a certain, familiar level of complexity has an intelligent creator as well. Consider that the only truly creative being we know of, besides god, is mankind. So the very concept of an intelligent creator is an anthropomorphic concept. And so, we created god in our image.

Hi Distractions4Nothing,

Welcome to the thread...

Very good analogy by humans, but what people say God is or expect God to be, is Nothing at all like what I understand of the "word" God described by the writings...

But I am only another droplet of water in the Lake or sea.

But your analogy of what Human Primates think of the "word" God is generally true....

But I think to really understand what the ancients thought we have to try and understand the word by back tracking to the beginning even back to Plato and before in a Language that Identifies the concept in its true context...

And this means seeing the word in ZIONic from where IONic Greek came From.....

The ZIONic Language was Not a verbal Language but A Geometric Language that was Written Only, and Not verbalised as ours is today.

Any thoughts on this?

Thank you once again for your Valuable Input.

Hi there.

I've always said that one of the greatest myths forced on Christians by the Holy See is that God doesn't have a sense of human.All you have to do is look at the world around you to see that the exact opposite is true.lol


I could gone on to say that if you attach MA to DOG you get DOGMA./A to LIVE you get ALIVE...but those things can can on forever and serve little purpose.I like to study the origin of words,sayings etc so i thought i would clear up the misunderstanding.

Having a belief can still mean what God is,is beyond human comprehension.
I believe.I can understand it,but i cannot grasp the enormity of it.

Hi again,

Excellent script,

Well I have taken the Plunge and opened another thread call

"Does anyone really know what the Soul is"

I am ether going to be run out of town or the men in white coats will want to remove me or maybe just maybe some may be interested.

I know it is one hell of a risk but I feel I have ton say something.

I guess the worst that can happen is that they will Crucify me I mean by writing.

I started off OK but a few were demanding Answers so I have started to release a few of my thought...

I am hoping some my listen ad understand.

I just wish I was more articulate in writing..... LOL..

I will give an account of what I know about the word God on this Thread over the next day or two..

I haven't been successful yet in getting some of my geometric drawings on abovetopsecret yet as the files are too big and when I reduce them I loose all the detail.

Any thoughts on this? or techniques on how to achieve uploading drawings?
