The Nature of God
Man created God in his own image in order to feel secure
and abdicate responsibility. So if the image we have of God is not
real, then what it real?
Who are we? Why are we here? Who is God? Obviously, these
are questions that cannot be answered by the intellect. Perhaps there
is a part of us that has the answers, or maybe the answers are irrelevant.
I know there is an intelligent, loving energy that permeates all things,
and that there appears to be no limit to this energy. There also appears
to be no limit to how aware we can become. After all, if the universe is
infinite, there will always be some part of it beyond our finite awareness.
The world of duality is contained within the world of Oneness
– or to put it another way, the lower dimensions of time and space are
contained with the higher dimensions of timelessness and omnipresence.
No matter what we are experiencing, we live in ONE UNIFIED UNIVERSE.
However, within this unity, there are many windows in the
Creator's mansion (and many mansions in the Father’s house, to quote
the Bible), each with a specific view of the whole (more or less distorted
by beliefs). But of course, no perspective can view the entire creation
because it sees only from its unique angle of perception.
This is an attempt to put the idea of the Self into words, although
it is really not possible.
Every once in a while, I ponder the question of why, with all
the thousands of lifetimes of each soul, and billions of souls, God in
the form of me chose this particular soul and this particular lifetime
and this particular viewpoint. I’m sure each of you could ask that same
question from your unique viewpoint as you in your body.
I've often thought that the film we call life is an infinitely
giant reel containing all the lifetimes of all the souls and life forms,
all wound up together in eternity.
What does God do for amusement? He/she/it chooses to experience
each soul and lifetime sequentially and/or simultaneously.
The real mystery is that each soul experiencing a sequential
lifetime sees the world only through that soul's eyes (embodiment).
If you are the embodiment called Sal, everything evolves around Sal.
If your name is Joe or Peter or Mary, your entire lifetime revolves around
Joe or Peter or Mary.
Since God has an eternity in which to experience life, he/she/it
could, conceivably, enter souls one at a time and experience their
whole individual lifetimes, one at a time. In actuality, it appears
God experiences all souls and all lifetimes simultaneously, and perhaps
that means each of us can do the same.
Imagine looking through the eyes of each other soul in embodiment--sequentially
or simultaneously. Imagine seeing all the other souls’ lifetimes lined
up in front of you and experiencing each one sequentially or simultaneously.
Perhaps this is the ultimate meaning of "seeing the world through
another's eyes" for we are truly All One and everyone is part of my Self
(or yours or someone else’s).
I know this has been said before in different ways, but contemplating
it puts me in a pretty deep state. I hope it does the same for you.
We are the totality of God, and yet the paradox is, that
there is something greater than this. In other words, we are the manifested
creation, but there is an unmanifested void. The outer Universe is the
collective creation of the Universal Mind and all individuated souls living
within it. That is, every one of my thoughts affects everything else in
creation (and so does every one of yours). I think that when the ego tries
to make changes, they are superficial at best, but when we are centered
in our soul consciousness, our energy is magnified and blended into the
whole more effectively.
Each of us has a “Christ” self beyond the veil of forgetfulness.
(If you don’t like that word, you can call it a “Buddha” self, or “Krishna”
Most people fear success even more than they fear failure. Why
are we so afraid of our magnificence? Or to put it another way, why are
we so attached to our petty little lives? Surely some part of us must
remember being magnificent before we separated from God. And does the
little ego self really disappear into the Godhead, or does it expand in
awareness until it merges with the Godhead? Perhaps this is what the little
self REALLY longs for -- union with the Divine. Wake up, little self! You
In Gregg Braden’s "The God Code," he takes the Fibonacci sequence
and compares it to DNA pairing. He finds that the DNA pairings translate
in ancient Hebrew to “Yahweh”, the name of God, implying that God's
name is encoded in our cells. I haven't examined his book in depth to
see if it is scientifically sound, but the Golden Mean and all of nature
adheres to Fibonacci. Gregg's website is www.greggbraden.net and the book
is available at the site or on Amazon.
Modern science has essentially proven that we live in a sea
of infinite energy. There are about 10^108 (that's a ten followed by
one hundred and eight zeroes) possible variations in the DNA, trillions
of times more than the number of atoms in the known universe.
Science has also calculated the approximate number of possible
interconnections in one human brain. This number is 10^10^98, or 10 log
10^98. This is an incredibly huge number. This number is so big that if
you tried to write it out long-hand in normal 12-pt type, the zeroes following
the one would stretch around the Earth several times. If you began writing
it now, it would take you about 250,000 years to finish writing it! My point
is that we are INFINITE BEINGS created in the image and likeness of our
Creator. We are ONE with GOD, literally and figuratively.
What is the nature of Universal Mind? The creation may exist
in a kind of Bose-Einstein condensate or virtual flux of neutral particles
until acted upon by consciousness--then it becomes polarized or metamorphic
in nature (holographic?). In other words, there is a medium upon which
creation happens (like a canvas upon which art is created). See Quantum Entanglement.
How does God evolve? Let's use the parent-child analogy. A
parent is reasonably conscious and gives birth to a child who has limited
(earthly) consciousness, but then grows up to meet or exceed the awareness
of the parent. We are all God's children. God is a very wise parent and
we are learning to meet or exceed our parents’ abilities (Mother and Father
All these things shall ye do, and greater things than these
shall ye do... (John 14:12)
I've had several direct experiences of the Cloud of Energy
that permeates all existence. My real Self has awareness throughout
the Universe. When I am in a higher state, I become aware of the entire
Universe, at least to some extent, because I am non-local. My awareness
is no longer confined to time and space.
I guess you could say that we merge with the Universe and the
Universe becomes aware of itself. We become infinite mind, infinite awareness,
omnipresence, omnipotence, omniscience, etc.
We have a choice. We can keep our awareness in our little bubble,
or we can merge our bubble with the infinite bubble. We are then aware
Of course, we are also individualized, and that individualized
aspect is only aware of bits and pieces of the whole.
Our bodies are merely vehicles or instruments designed to
perceive individuality. They are neutral -- neither bad nor good. They
can be made to be whatever we want them to be, just as we can make a
simple calculator or a supercomputer.
To sum up, there is a universal consciousness that is aware
of everything. It is impersonal and available to anyone who chooses
to take one's awareness away from sequential time and space and go into
There are beings at every level of the Universe -- some have
microscopic limited awareness and some have the awareness of entire
galaxies. In fact, galaxies are conscious beings on a higher level.
We are Gods in our own right, living in a sea of Godhood that is simultaneously
aware of itself and the entities that make up its body.
I believe there is an impersonal BEING that is ONE with EVERYTHING
and is, therefore, capable of being aware of everything.
