The light that is seen is not separate from me.

I guess you could call me a pantheist, but I try not to label myself.

Pantheism means "all is god" and "god is all". So all individuals and all things that exists makes up "God", but really there is no individuals because God is "ONE" (Wholeness - Completeness).

I personally do not believe in any kind of intervention other than our own.

God is "I Am", and its will is free will. I

If only "God" exists and only "free-will" exists, then everything is free-will including the control of others. It is God playing with itself pretending to be "different people".

If some outside force intervenes, that implies that our will is limited to some extent, and I choose not to believe in limited will.

Pantheism says...

I AM "Me".
I AM "You".
I AM "Everything".
Everything is "ME".
Everything is ONE - existing as everything.

I AM Gravity.
I AM The Laws of The Universe.
I AM The one in pain.
I AM The one who caused pain.
I AM The free.
I AM The Slave.

In a world of "I AM" (Where all is "I" - absolute unity - believing all is God) there cannot be any outside forces.

There is only 'self' and all arises and subsides in it as it.

Nothing can arise outside of 'self'.
The 'self' is all there is.
Know thyself is not a recommendation - it is all self can ever do.

This sums up my belief pretty well. There is no "outside" force because God is all that exists, God is the universe, life and everything that comes with it. Except, I don't think God pretends to be anything, God is what God is.

"I am the eye with which the Universe beholds itself and knows itself Divine"
Percy Shelley, "Song of Apollo" 1824

"All Nature is but Art unknown to thee;
All chance, direction which thou canst see;
All discord, harmony not understood;
All partial evil, Universal good;
and spite of pride, in erring reason's spite;
one truth is clear, whatever is, is right."
Alexander Pope, "The Essay on Man" 1773
