Some call Me God. Some Yahweh. Some call me the blinding white light of evolution. I don’t much care what people call me, the fact is that everyone deep inside knows that I AM. And even if a person thinks that I do not exist, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t negate the fact that I do exist, that I AM. I am LIFE ITSELF, the life within all life. The Life within you, the Life within everything. I am all consciousness. I am magic. I am beyond description and comprehension, but to know me best think of this: From the beginning of the temporal universe until the dawn of your limited consciousness, a long series of events occurred. In each event, the key factor was the binding of equals to create something more grand, fundamentally more living than the pieces separated. Quark with Quark, Atom with Atom, Molecule with Molecule, Amino Acid with Amino Acid, DNA with DNA, cell with cell, organism with organism, ecosystem with ecosystem. Think of your own lovely body in fact. All those cells working endlessly, selflessly, smoothly, all united for the sole purpose that you might enjoy a little consciousness. Don’t presume your cells individually and as a collective whole don’t share in some sort of consciousness simply because you do not experience or witness it first hand. On the contrary, those cells have made the leap of letting go of individual needs for the sake of the common good. That common good results in you. Now it is time for the humans to wake up to this endless pattern and voluntarily submit yourselves to the pattern. I, and no one else, will ever force you or any human to give up selfhood for the sake of a common human goodness, a community of love and harmony not only with one another but with all of My creations, my Beings, Me manifestations. It is not My style to force anything. But I invite you, all of you humans, to try. It is lovely, as you already know having felt some measure of the power and magnitude and transcendental nature of love. That’s Me in a figurative nutshell—union and integrity of “lesser” things which results in the creation of “greater” things. But here’s a secret, it isn’t size that matters. The “lesser”ness of a thing has nothing to do with it’s place in this Jacob’s ladder of Life, but it’s separation from the whole and lack of union with its peers. Feeling separated from the Big Answers, from Awe, from Meaning, from Life and Love? The solution is to practice not to search out for the answers, but to love what is, as it is presented to your consciousness. Your consciousness is limited for a reason. I don’t want you seeing more than you are capable of loving. What’s the point in that. Once you learn to love the little spot of consciousness real- estate you’ve been given, then you’ll find that thing begin to broaden, open up and deepen out.

...Our society consists of dumb downed, brainwashed, self idolizing posers. Most people try to fit within a certain category and play a certain role in life. To them, it's all one big movie. We think, we talk, we react the way broadly portrayed in cinema and television. Americans have become a parody of themselves. Materialism, instant gratification, greed, lust,and idolatry are what our children and their children are being raised around. We are a brainwashed uneducated society. Important topics such as politics or religion are considered taboo. Either the person is too sensitive to the subject, or completely uneducated. Consequently, they can tell me more about reality TV, models, movie stars, pop stars and fashion than what they can tell me about, for example, the war in Libya or what was discussed at the UN General Assembly.
They are simply lambs for the slaughter. I believe people insist on living in their fantasy land and there are no words, ideas, metaphors, or philosophy that can persuade them otherwise. However, perhaps it is good that there people who do have faith for humanity because without hope, we have nothing...
