I began my research, trying to surmise whether God exists, and whether the depictions of God in religious texts such as the Bible were accurate. These
questions were the ones that actually opened my eyes to a much larger picture of the world. After reading practically every major religious text I was
able to get my hands on, and even reading many books directly from different Secret Societies libraries, I have been able to come to general idea of
Gods existence. These are of course my own views, and I am always willing to listen to other perspectives. It’s the only way we can learn, and grow.
It has become my understanding that God does exist but perhaps not in the way that many people wish to portray him/her. You see how I
anthropomorphized God there. There is perhaps a lesson to be learned in that statement. Anyway, God is not someone sitting in the clouds watching
over us ready to punish us if we step out of line. As wonderful, and terrible of a perspective this is, it just doesn’t fit the profile of the real
world in my experience. Now many people will have an issue with this statement, however the view that most people have of the Bible and of God are
from there Sunday school teachers. Unfortunately these are not good sources to get your information from, last time I checked there was not a
requirement for a Sunday school teacher to be proficient in Hebrew and Greek, and to look at the Bible objectively. Few of these Sunday school
teachers and even Pastors have very little experience even working with a Strong’s Concordance. Instead they are told what to say, and how to
interpret with little or no justification for why it is interpreted in such a way.
An easy example of this is the word God itself in how it is used in the Bible. The word that is used in the Old Testament, which is translated into
the word God is not actually one word but three base words. In the Hebrew the word that are translated to God are “El”, “Elohim”, and
“Jehovah”. The definition for “El” would be a masculine Deity. The definition of “Elohim” is best broken down in “El” being the
masculine deity, and “ohim” a feminine plural deity. Therefore “Elohim” would technically be a multitude of Male and Female Gods. The
definition of “Jehovah” would be best defined as an aggressive or upset masculine deity. All three of these words are defined as God in most
Bibles. Unfortunately many words in Hebrew can’t be directly translated into English without writing out a sentence to describe the word.
That is only a taste of the effort that must be put in, when doing research involving religion. We can’t use now a day definitions with thousand
year old texts. This article isn’t intended to go into the interpretations of the Bible, and other texts. Let’s just leave it at that I believe
that 95% of all religious texts have nothing to do with God the creator, that they are symbolic of something much deeper, and perhaps darker. Perhaps
that would be a good article to write in the future.
It has become kind of a slogan in the esoteric works the statement “As Above, So Below”. This statement I believe tells us far more then we give
it credit for. The general idea behind it is that if we can understand the system to which the consciousness works on Earth, we will be able to
understand how the mind of God himself/herself. In other words by understanding our own consciousness, we will be able to at least get an idea of how
God thinks; after all we were created by him/her. This is a fair statement to make in that anything you or I create or do is based on our own
beliefs, and views, and in the end will only be accomplished because our own Will or Consciousness decided to.
