Default Oneness and our own Divinity...

Although it is written in the Bible that God created man equal to his own image,
today we find it very hard to believe that this may actually be true and that
maybe every one of us is truly a spark of the Divine.

But what if we allowed ourselves for a moment to believe that God did indeed
create us in his own image? What if we are His co-creators? What if our
surrounding ‘objective reality’ proves to be only a projection of our own
consciousness? Could it be that it was we who created reality all along? Then God
did not forsake us after all, did he? Many people today have lost their faith since
they cannot believe that if there is a God, why he allows all these terrible things
in the world. But what if we were doing it to ourselves all along?

Maybe we are spiritual beings having a material experience instead of material beings having a
spiritual experience?


Eastern spirituality would call this realization an awakening, enlightenment, the
realization that we are One with God. Many people throughout history have
achieved this enlightenment; they awakened to the Christ consciousness, the
universal consciousness, like Jesus of Nazareth did. The problem that Jesus had
in his time is that nobody understood him. When he said ‘I and the Father are
One’, he was crucified for these words because they were taken by the Pharisees
as pure blasphemy.


Today many people will still crucify the enlightened idea that God and man are
One, especially those who tend to support the idea that God is judgmental and
man must be punished for his sins! However I believe that the current
developments in science are leading us into the direction of a realization that our
cosmos is Divine and that we are a part of the whole! This has been the true
message of all the prophets including Jesus of Nazareth who were trying to bring
Enlightenment to humanity. However in our fear of God we failed to recognize the
truth! Fortunately today it is much easier than 2000 years ago to comprehend the
very words of Jesus in a whole new context.


Jesus said ‘love your brother like you love yourself’. If we fail to love our brother
like ourselves, we fail to recognize the Oneness and our own Divinity. Of all the
six billion people that are walking the face of the Earth, in reality there is only
One of us here! We are only different perspectives of the same universal
consciousness!

For sure we are spirit temporarily in the material regions. The human body is in gods image meaning it contains the 18 centers potentially linking the body with the entire range of the creation. Other life forms are kinetic in at most 3 of the lower 6 (the chakra). Of course, the average human does not come close to event the third eye.

A joy to read : ) - fine thoughts dressed in words for all to see


It is said when God created Heaven Earth and abounding Nature with its diversity of life - He created Man to live multiply caretake and cocreate in it - So naturally Man had to be given special powers that resembles the Creator Himself

Did God ponder and think how Man should be like before Breathing Life into a well–thought–of form He was satisfied with...?
Did He foresee any troubles by this Act of encasing parts of His Holy Spirit into flesh...?
Did He not want His Image Man to know He was in fact Himself...?
Did He concoct a Mind Mirror so bright and powerful that It could deflect His Light into a world of men and obscure Mans awerness of Himself as Himself...?

Did He not know there would be no fun no drama in apparent diversity if everybody knew they really were Him...?!

This is my belief.

When creation started many energies where brought into existence. They carried out this wonder called the universe and assisted with the making of life. This gave structure to the universe.

After along time came the realisation (or pre determined knowing) that all followed the same route. To be able to predict and know the outcome carries no value as it stunts the reason for choice.

Free will was given to this universe(s) to give choice its own path. Although all is known by the creator it is more colourful and adds more texture to the great fabric of existence. This is why the creator loves us so, for we here (who have total free will) give back to it what it is.

In true spirit form we understand more than here. In this true state we only come with advice on how to better improve the universe first and thus improve ourselfs along the journey.

This is my belief.

. Indeed, we are. To me, there is no doubt about it anymore. I still have doubts, but not of this kind, .

We are here to express Life itself. In a way no other then ourselves can express. This is a gift and this is very precious to God (let's call him/her this way, ). Uniqueness is possible through separation. Self is define in terms of separation, not in terms of inclusion. We are on a journey to get back to the source, but at the same time, the source never left us. It seems paradoxical, but it is part of a learning.

We are like little fishes swimming all over the ocean looking for the ocean. Until the day the fishes realize the water that makes the ocean is also what makes themselves.

It is time to listen inside, all is there, Steven
