God is not concerned with what book you read that helped you to know him; God does not care what name you give him, or what religion you claim as your own. You are not punished for not knowing God, and there is no devil after your soul. What believe in God brings, is not salvation, and is understanding and wisdom. It does not matter how you come to know God, what matters is that you know God. But the salvation or damnation of your soul is not dependent on believe in God, because your soul was never at stake. All religions and sciences are different puzzle pieces of the same puzzle. What is gained from believe in God is a greater understanding of yourself, the world, and the universe. You will not be punished for not believing in God, there is no hell (besides the hell your mind creates) but there is reward in believing....the reward is not "heaven", the reward is wisdom, understanding, peace, and love.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Some men see the divine nature of consciousness that is within us all, and anoint their ego "God". There is a part of me that is a part of you, it is the part of we that is all that we see. An individual is a collection of individuals. "God" is the collection of all individuals. We are all one being, viewing the world from different perspectives. We all have the same awareness, the same consciousness but we all view life through different Ego’s; it is in identifying yourself with your ego that gives rise to the greed and corruption of this world."They" see the true nature of reality through a stained glass window and anoint their ego as "God" at the cost of the awareness that pervades through us all, including themselves. You are not inside the universe, the universe is inside you. The physical world is a mental hologram, there is nothing physical about it, only what your mind has fooled you into believing. Your imagination is so powerful that you forgot your imagining the entire universe.
When 3 people are in a room looking at an object, many would assume they exist in one universe in one room with 3 people and one object. But the reality is that each person creates their own universe, their own room, their own people and their own object. The truth is there are 3 universes, 3 rooms, 9 human bodies, 3 objects, and 3 separate consciousnesses. You have created all that you see in your mind, you are the bodies in which you see. The people you see have created their own universe, and in that universe, your body, is their mind. No matter where you go, you have not moved. You have just created a different environment in your mental world. The physical world is an illusion; there is no "out there" out there, it is all the mental construct of God, experienced by us, the characters in Gods dream. For how could something as immaterial as consciousness, ever arise from something as unconscious as matter?
A common problem people have is that they think they are separate from God, that the entire universe is separate from God, as if they had a large enough telescope they could look deep into space and say "look, I found God" but the reality is that we are within the consciousness of God, we are within the mind of God, you cannot find evidence of the dreamer within the dream, you can only find the evidence of the dream. This is the problem modern science has, they are studying the dream in an attempt to find the dreamer. The dreamer can only be found when you look within. You do not need to find a religion; they are all just different guides, to help you find yourself. No religion can save you, no school can teach you, they are simply guides that shine a light and help you to walk the path into the universe within yourself.You are the only person who can teach yourself, I could speak a thousand truths for a thousand years, but it does not matter if it falls on deaf ears.
If you want to see God, all you need to do is open your eyes. All that you see is contained within the mind of God, including yourself. If you want to hear God, all you need to do is open your ears. All that you hear is contained within the mind of God, including yourself. If you want to feel God, all you need to do is open your hand. All that you touch is contained within the mind of God, including yourself. If you want to know God, all you need to do is open your mind. All that you know is contained within the mind of God, including yourself.
Past, present, and future, are all happening simultaneously, have already happened, and never really happened at all. The only difference between where you've been and where you’re going is what you’re thinking.
