This idea came to me out of a need to either conclusively prove right or wrong to other people that they are indeed One entity, "God". In order to do this, what's better than having a list of evidence? I'm only one person, my realizations are limited. That's why I'm going to ask each of you who follow this concept to participate.

Assuming you know this, at some point in your life you had to figure out how. So how did you? Share your experience and any evidence you can think of.



My Experience:

For me, I got the realization about a week or two ago although it started quite a while before that. It was about a month ago when it occurred to me that the world may be approaching its end or at least my end. If I'm here for a reason (I believe I am a Wanderer) then I need to discover what that reason is.

When you look around at other people doing it like Buddhists for example, it can take them years of meditation if not their entire lives. I don't have years, so I needed a shortcut. I "prayed" (stated something and expected a result) about this and got an answer. It was "lose all identity with yourself and the world around you".

So I figured out a way to do this that goes against forum rules haha, and I was depressed because of it for about a month afterwards. I had no clue who I was and although I cared about people, I no longer loved them. I hated everyone and everything equally.

One night, I was watching "The Girl Next Door" and it taught me how to love again haha. I turned off the TV afterwards, sitting in the dark in silence reflecting, and my pineal gland opened. The experience was that of a pressure pushing out on my forehead almost as if it was a headache but there was no pain. It was just a state of bliss where I couldn't stop smiling if I wanted to and it made it difficult to go to sleep. During this time I was having all sorts of epiphanies.

Anyway, later I realized that I've been participating in other people's lives more than I have my own. I'm always trying to help them with something and in more cases or not, it's been in figuring out who they were and who they weren't. Life to me was just a temporary experience that will pass and without other people, there was no point in me being here at all. With all of that together, I realized that I'm being "God".

Ever since that point, my realizations about life have been 10 fold what they were before. I see the world in a different light, no more right or wrong, just experiences. Quite simply, the perception change was probably the best thing that's ever happened to me.


Now that my own experience is out of the way, let's look at some other things that may be proof in plain sight. Empathy is the ability to experience what other people experience, you put yourself in their shoes. If it's just another emotion, is it really necessary to put yourself in other people's shoes? Can't you just feel sad for them?

Empathy comes naturally for something that's supposed to be "imagined". I was minding my own business when I saw that some little kid had lost a parent. Did I immediately have to realize what it would feel like to lose one of my own? Wouldn't it be easier to say I'm sorry for your loss and think nothing more of it? So why is it so complicated to be so simple? We "purposely" take the hard route.

Assuming that ATS will allow me to edit threads, I'm going to have a second one below for you guys and your evidence. I'll put your username in it, your page and post number, and a little description of your experience as we unravel the mystery.

Enjoy.

You and I the same. I had experienced great confusion, until i asked the right question. The answer came so fast it was scary. things happened that were more than i could ask for to help me open up.

The end is nigh. We will all wake up, and will see how close we came to our goal. Individually, and as a collective. The illusion of death will exist no more.

Duh ??

So where exactly in your post is the proof that I am god.

Now one would have thought that I, being omniscient would have known the answer to that question before I even asked but alas I did not.

Piss poor start to my new life as god don't you think ?

Can someone look out their window and see if Bill O'Reillys' lily white arse is impaled on the empire state building yet.

What was your answer? Can you elaborate so other people can experience it in their own way (empathy)?

Did you actually read the thread because it doesn't appear that you did. I'm not giving you proof, I'm asking for yours.

If you were "God", where's the fun in being all-knowing? Wouldn't you want to experience everything? To do so, you'd need to forget everything. Maybe that's how you arrived at your predicament.

I don't have to "think" to empathize, it just happens. Myself personally, I believe there is just a connection that I sometimes have with people, and I cannot help but to instantly feel their pain, or other emotions. I never stop and think, "Oh, this bad thing happened to Bob, I feel sorry for him, jee I wonder what it would be like to step in his shoes"

Trust me, I don't wanna be in anyone elses shoes but my own. I think the world would be a way better place for me if I could just walk past someone dying on the street and say with a clear conscious, "Sucks to be you" but I can't, chances are, I'd probably feel whatever it is that is killing them too.

I had my own awakening experience, and I ended up in a psych ward because of it. It was liberating, but I felt the sorrow and pain of the world. I don't look at people the same anymore. I don't want to be around people anymore, I am tired of feeling something that I can't either block or heal. It's too much for me and I feel helpless.

I wish I could break free from this invisible soul chain that ties me to my fellow human beings, but I can't, because I know, deep down, we are all family. One big, sick, unhappy, psycho, family.

Good thread!

This was sent to me yesterday
(27th August 2010)

My experiences ARE the same. My study into the metaphysical ARE the same.

The results ARE the same.

Explanation is very basic really, we can continue to argue, but this link... says it all


Am I God? - "Yes, you are"

Its called "The Egg", and its the very first 'published' account of Adam Weirs description of a conversation between "God" and "Someone that has passed on".

Takes about 4 - 5 minutes to read. Enjoy


“I… I died?”

“Yup. But don’t feel bad about it. Everyone dies,” I said.

You looked around. There was nothingness. Just you and me. “What is this place?” You asked. “Is this the afterlife?”

“More or less,” I said.

“Are you god?” You asked.

“Yup,” I replied. “I’m God.”

“My kids… my wife,” you said.

“What about them?”

“Will they be all right?”

“That’s what I like to see,” I said. “You just died and your main concern is for your family. That’s good stuff right there.”

Make it a wonderful experience then, you define your own perception. If someone dies and there's more to life, no matter how bad it seemed, was it really bad?

That was the most awe-inspiring and intriguing pieces of literature I've ever come across. Now the question is, will others empathize with what I felt when I read it?

All my life I have been searching. Searching and searching. Why am I here? What is God? Materialism really never appealed to me , my search was for Truth with a capital "T". Long story short with the aid of the Upanishads and the Gita, I gained tremendous ground in understanding. Then during meditation, I was struck with a force. It was a download really. My whole being filled with this energy sensation for several seconds. I suddenly knew that I knew everything. I am everything and everything was me. Aham Brahmasmi. I am Brahman. Namaste

During meditations, I was told that when I finish this mission, my whole group/class will graduate. We are separate my class and I but we are one. We retain our individuality but we are one entity. They tell me that everything is proceding excedingly well. I have been told to just enjoy the ride. So I am telling myself to enjoy the ride?! Namaste

As Tom sat, contemplating the eternal, he began to notice that his eyes were more of a window - a barrier of sorts - between the universe he faced and the universe within him that he leaned on for support. For protection. Each, a fathomless expanse, with a need to rush to the very limits of its potential - pressuring against one another with only his eyes to hold one from breaching the divide and violating the pure essence of the other - contaminating the unique homogeneity that set one forever against the other.

It was then - at that precise moment - that he found a moment of stasis within and without. The force of the universe within had suddenly balanced against the force of the universe without. Each pushing toward the other in equal strength.

It was an instant of epiphany. A moment of complete liberation.

Tom's vision cleared and he saw forever. His eyes, freed of the constant pressure - relieved of the task of holding one universe at bay, as it sought to break through and impose itself upon the delicate balance of the other - drank in the novelty of a true and glorious balance, and broke through the veil of eternity to dive deep into the very mind of God.

His soul swooned in rapturous deliverance. It was perfect transcendence, and it was his.

Just then a car horn blasted him back into the hell of his corporeal existence.

"Are you gonna mope around all day in the woods?" yelled out Stosh, his sidekick since the 6th grade. "I need a coffee and then we gotta get to Shooters before Kelly so's that she thinks I been there all afternoon!"

He felt the last twinges of rage flow to his fingertips and then sprinkle out onto the brown leaves below. It wasn't Stosh's fault. How was he to know that his invasion had destroyed the only moment of true peace that Tom had ever known in his whole life. The one instant when all seemed in balance and the pressure was, for one beautiful moment, a distant, foreign concept.

"Let's go" called Tom's friend, leaning on the horn again.

"Yeah yeah" Tom groaned. "I'm coming"

"What the hell were you doin' out there anyway" asked Stosh, as he shifted the Mustang into drive.

Tom just sat and stared out the windshield as they flew past the gates of the subdivision and headed out toward Starbucks. He didn't feel like talking right now.

That's nice, but I don't call it being God. I just call it suspending yourself long enough to help others, and realizing that your personal self-worth depends on helping others.

I would think that in attempting "proof" of one's divinity, the best approach might be more intellectual and objective and less experiential and subjective. After all, we're talking about proof, and as such, nobody's experiences, however dramatic and undeniable to the people involved, would qualify as proof.

A good start might be exploring consciousness, what it is and isn't. Finding examples such as NDE's and OBE's, especially those well-documented cases that involve a degree of proof (or at least contain unexplainable aspects) such as Robert Monroe's and others. After making a good case that consciousness appears to be independent of the body, a case can be made for the interconnectedness of that consciousness, using studies in non-locality and esp for "proof."

Another possible jumping off point could be recent interpretations of quantum physics, such as "The Tao of Physics", "The Dreaming Universe," and other books that attempt of tackle the nature of reality and consciousness from a scientific, but non-materialist view.

One more angle that might provide "proof," at least to the open-minded, would be the many cases of adepts of different mystical traditions who appear to perform "miracles." Though many are indeed charlatans, there are ample examples that cannot be explained away, and the honest seeker cannot ignore or disprove.

Perhaps with all these approaches combined, (along with the subjective experiences of a large group of the "enlightened") something akin to proof could be asserted. It wouldn't actually be proof, but at least a convincing argument.
