The most profound truth comes from reflection as a function of seeking what is already there. ATS provides a good mechanism for questioning truth and
reality. Being pressed for an answer often reveals what we already know from our higher self. Awareness of that higher nature comes from seeking the
source of that first self. Today, I was pressed for an answer to this question: Is God a person? I think this answer I sought out is the most
profound revelation I have experienced yet. Here is the conclusion I came to:
The real question here would be, "Is God personal? To be personal, he would need to be entangled with the whole, yet single unto himself. In other
words, does God possess a self separate from others? The answer comes from involution. The answer is, yes we are. Do we have a relationship to the
Godhead? Yes, by reaching back to unity from multiplicity. The answer to the separate self of God is then reflected back by the whole outside of the
temporal and embodied by the eternal. For anything to be lost, something else must be looking for it. Does the unchanging eternal and unmoved draw us
back to the unchanging personal autonomous God? Yes. Because we are a reflected image that moves away and then back as autonomous individuals that are
perfected back to the eternal, yet never possessing that eternal perfection. We become one with God, yet never alone. If God were not a unique self,
then neither could we be. All that is moved must be anchored against what is unmoved or God simply looks at himself. We know the difference because we
only see on way. Those who separate themselves willingly keep those who return unique, otherwise, we are all one. Good and evil is the dividing line.
Christ keeps us separate, but able to see and know we are unique. He is the only way for the image to exist.
For those who say we are all one, I say, "only if we are in Christ.". Love is the mechanism of unified faith. Only good and Love can be one with God.
Christ Is that perfected single image against the opposite reflection. We could never do this ourselves. This is what the crucified Christ is.
Our sin was His burden to bear in the image of imperfection. God sees us through Christ and we do the same looking at God.
