I say essence, as the spirit is so powerful, and is an instrument. He used his spirit to create, and left behind living essence or energy to maintain
life. It is much easier to explain scientifically. There is a difference between life energy force, and spirit. In my trying to make sense of this;
spirit is a tool that God uses to exert overt power, like electricity, with whom & what he chooses.
I tend to look at things in terms of perspective. What defines an "individual", is the "individuals" perspective. As the perspective changes,
the person will also change accordingly. I see the father as being the sum of all perspective, the "big picture", the only true perspective, etc.
And I see the sons/daughters, as being of the father, but of course under a limited, unique, individual perspective.
Science I think is a perspective. I don't think the universe actually moves at all. I think consciousness is the only true "energy". And really
it's just a matter of how you want to look at it.
Example. Take 2 balls, put them in room with no background. both Balls are moving back and forth parallel to each other. Set your perspective on
1 ball. As you sit on that ball, it will look as if your ball isn't moving at all. so you say - ahh I wanna get on that "moving" ball. So you
jump across and land on the other ball. Well dang, now this ball has stopped moving. The ball you left from looks to be the only one that is
moving. Was either perspective wrong really? But only if you were to look at things from a perspective not on either ball could you see the truth
of the situation, that both balls are moving.
Look at it this way - all living things benefit by this essence or energy. The good, bad and indifferent. The spirit is separate and goes beyond the
energy that supports life; human, animal, mammal and vegetation. Whereas the spirit is like a laser gun (a separate force)and can be directed at will,
to do his will.
I think most things operate off logic. Plants and such, these are simple logic programs which work off action and reaction. Some animals I'm not
sure of. But you could simulate logically anything you see on earth, even our bodies are all logic, action and reaction. The only thing that
doesn't operate on action/reaction is consciousness. And this is the ability to "be". To be aware. Higher consciousness IMO starts when you
really start to realize - you are aware that you are aware, and the significance of it. I think, therefore I am. So these are the 2 forces I see.
If I make a program of a 3d world right now. I can do this all on logic. But until a consciousness is there to view it, it doesn't "come to
life". It's just patterns being run, actions and reactions. So I see the spirit as being in those things which are aware, that observe the
creation, and in the end there is only 1 observer.
God cannot be in each of us because: he cannot reside in human dysfunction, His perfection would not allow it. Nor could we endure his perfect energy
which would destroy us. The shaming exposure alone, would implode us! We are just lemmings, after all.
But you break your own rule and say that something which is perfect created something which is imperfect. How could his perfection allow such?
IMO, there are evil things in this world because we are here to learn. I see the earth as being a school, some may say prison. The father is
perfect, the incomplete father "your persective, not you", is the only thing that could be considered not perfect. But realize such is a
requirement for this reality.
I honestly don't think of death as "bad", because I don't believe it's real. I don't think when I see someone die, they actually "died".
They only "died" in my perspective, not in theirs.
The pure cannot reside with the impure, Nor are WE Gods as Neo-Platonists and others since have taught. Free will must be allowed to enter the
picture, and heaven's knows we are very imperfect and as gods have failed miserably!
There is a scripture that says "God is dynamic energy." We cannot see God and live. It shoots the "God is in us" - theory!
God is a God of science and therefore, there are laws in the Universe we cannot transcend, this being one of them. It is also logical that atheists
would have a difficult time with New Age, as I do, for it cannot be supported by science (also a creation of God).
How can you understand cold if you didn't also know hot? You could also be hot or cold, but you could never actually understand what either of them
meant unless you have experienced both. You would just be whatever, and if you were to say you were hot or cold, it would only be because authority
told you so. Only with knowledge of both do you understand. Thus, why it says we will know both good and evil. Before then, we were "good",
but we were only good because that is just what we were. We didn't know we were good, we didn't know what good was. No understanding. But then
we come experience evil, and from that we gain knowledge and understanding, and eventually the wisdom to make the correct choices.
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.
