QUESTION - "Do you believe in God?"
WE THINK. IT IS. MAKE IT CONTINUE. ALWAYS
I particularly liked this answer (more on this later).
When one starts to create something, it always begins with a desire, one creates because there is a desire to create. What does one do when there is
no desire. If the sole purpose of one’s existence was to create a ball, what is that one doing when there is no desire to create that ball. Does the
creator of that ball not exist in the absence of this desire?
Who began creation and who just is?
Frankly, this story filled in a few blanks that I've been trying to understand ever since I had a "moment of enlightenment" while on prescription
medication for a pretty severe medical condition. Basically, the gist of the story (our human bodies being only a means for our true essence to have
a particular experience/sensation) hit me like a ton of bricks while I was laying on the couch in recovery. I had never considered such a concept
before but, to me, it is now undeniable fact. It wasn't until after my "epiphany" that I discovered existing philosophies that align strongly with
The holes in my beliefs involved the forgetting of past lives and true self. I assumed that it was simply a self-imposed alteration to avoid
corrupting the human experience... which I still feel may be accurate. The prison planet theory is interesting but the story seems to apply too many
human traits to entities that would have no need for war, corporations, prisons, etc as they are pure "being" without physical or emotional
The "ah hah!" moment that occurred after reading the story was the concept of physical processes. "Airl" mentions that we only have to imagine
something into existence to create it but it takes a lot of concentration. So, instead of constantly focusing all of your effort into manifesting,
let's say... the planet Neptune, it would be much easier to manifest a process by which things are created and perpetuate. It will sound like an
arrogant notion to call all of us creators (like the big guy in the sky type), but that's exactly what I'm proposing.
What if all that we are currently able to observe (as humans) about the natural processes of the universe actually originated from ourselves, as
whatever you want to call our non-human existence (a soul, I suppose)? There is not one creator god but there is only us... our souls. Eternity is a
long time to spend doing nothing so our souls manifest "experiences." It's like a bored programmer that develops World of Warcraft so he can live
as an elf, or a wizard, or a sexy warrior woman. He's able to experience things that he can't possibly experience in his current state. That's
what the physical universe is... a mechanism for experience. Physics, biological and chemical processes, all the laws of nature that we're able to
observe are simply the programming created by our "soul" to keep this mechanism alive so that we can focus on other things. Believers in a creator
god will no doubt find this to be an arrogant notion primarily because it's impossible for some people to wrap their head around the types of ideas
that I'm proclaiming (believe me, I know it's hard to understand as it's also hard to explain.) Others... well, maybe you can keep your mind open
to the idea.
