You have subtle deceptions in everything you say.
"We bear the true light of God, consciousness. Stop looking past yourself and start looking within because that's where God is. "
Yes, God is with us but we are not God. We are good, but it is not of our own merit, but it is there thanks to our Creator. And in some people they
are missing that Light.
"God created the universe right? Don't we create the universe within our minds?"
No, we have a perception based on the the connection between our mind/body/spirit complex.
It changes day to day, we cannot control it, and I do not try to, I would rather leave it in God's hands.
"So in a sense, we create the world around us every second of every day. "
Why is this deceptive? because this very sentence is able to make a man go crazy if he believes it to be true. We only exist in the world, and our
perception of it comes from an understanding which is beyond our control.
"He was one with God, but so are we."
No, we are not. we are not until we are inflamed with God so ardently that no longer do we live, but God lives within us. That comes from going
through the "dark night of the soul".
Our soul is not in a state so as to be worthy to have God dwell with it. Some have made it so far, but I do not think that anyone who has would care
to blog on a site like this with the intention of nothing but coming to be known and acclaimed.
To call ourselves just as Jesus is is to say we can do no wrong, that we have no poison embedded in us or rather, that we are perfect and have no
"if you do not comprehend what your light is (God)"
my spirit is certainly not God, it is not perfect, it is not fully holy nor does it pretend to be so.
I refuse to worship my own spirit. but I would rather seek He Who is Heath to heal me and help me to build myself upon His model.
His Model is Charity,
and it does not seek to take, it does not seek to possess, it does not look to know everything, but it arrives at all these things for that reason.
"And when you come to possess it wholly,
You must possess it without desiring anything.
For, if you will to have anything in having all,
You have not your treasure purely in God."
John of the Cross.
