I think you're deluding yourself when you say god exists.
There is no need for god; the only purpose the concept of god use to serve was to "explain" the unexplainable. Now adays, it's used a bit more to make people believe that deceased loved ones are actually just away on vacation. Equally preposterous and illogical, but if that's what it takes to get through the day, then so be it. Just don't bring your superstitions into reality-based discussions, and keep the proselytizing to yourself.

If Jesus is God then why didn't he just say so? He kept saying "my Father".
And the Bible says God sent his only son to die for our sins.

Back on topic - I've been dwelling in my thoughts and I've come to the conclusion that you must dwell in your thoughts and literally attempt to imagine nothing then imagine opening your eyes (without opening your eyes) only to see more blackness. Then forget what you feel and feel openly.
Imagine that you are God opening His eyes metaphorically speaking.
I just did this exercise and I think it helped me to understand what I cannot convey in words.
It's the best I can do as weak as an answer as this is at this moment. My apologies.
