Why you are God
    #1707312 - 07/11/03 09:50 PM (20 years, 7 months ago)

Because you control your reality, and are responsible for your actions. 

God doesn't solve your problems, you do.  :laugh:

Who controls your body? You do.
Who controls your thoughts? You do.
Who controls your actions? Yep..
Who controls your reality? You do...
Who is God? We are.
I am

It's kind of like seeds from a tree. The seed is locked away behind the safe confines of its shell, sort of like ego..it is created by the tree, yet it has all the abilities as the original tree, to create infinite more trees. The same potential for creation. It isn't aware of this though, until it breaks from he shell and blossoms into infinity, becoming one with the earth and connecting with the environment which sustains it.

We are all connected on the unconscious level, as a mass consciousness. Like a giant web of thoughts and energy. We are all Gods running about our lives in complex patterns, all interweaving with each other, sharing experiences and perceptions of reality. That's where karma/evolution comes into the picture. Perpetual learning, it's perfect.

If we were gods we would not be responsible for our actions, we would have servants to do it for us.

Because all the Gods humans created were aimed to represent their own hidden wishes of their Selves....
All mighty, controlling everything, stable, able to fly, invisible, blah - blah.....

Why are we all Gods? Because we develop ourselves to that level....Because we do not need tools to control our hidden parts....imaginary friends....We are what we are - we realize it and we become what we wish to become.

LaVey described that really good.... Humans invented Gods. Not Gods created humans.

Best wishes,
Cayetana

Faaip de Oiad,

Great words. Perfect. Those, who do not take responsibility, who do not use their own powers, who do not have control, need something from exterior to do all that. This is how Gods are created.

Best....

God doesn't solve your problems, you do.

So America should NOT help stop the spread of AIDs in Africa because the African people are not helping themselves and taking personal responsibility, but are looking to an outside agency (be it God or America) to save them?

"Who controls your thoughts? You do."
Maybe I'm misinterpretting, but I don't think we
can completely control our thoughts... e.g.
the infamous "don't think about elephants"
inevitably causing u to think about elephants...

If all this searching for god has left us with still the one question - does god exist, then I think it'd be fair to say we can't PROVE god exists. There's stories of Jesus and the bible and that feeling you get when you pray, but when it comes down to it there's no factual evidence that god is something non-fiction. With that being said, who's to say that throughout time people have all just made up these stories about these feelings they get when they pray and what not, to fill the gap with which they don't know? Afterlife? You prove it to me, and I'll follow with bread, wine, and hell - I'll even wash your feet.

People need to stop passing the responsibility onto an external source of blame. WE are our makers - WE control ourselves - WE ARE. Yahweh is nothing more than a superman for the spirit.

Just to get the facts correct America is not really helping to stop Aids in Africa, they are not giving the money away for free, they are lending it. (just another profit making sham)
African countries have to pay it back and with all the interest which means to make them more poor, also they are obliged to only use it to buy drugs from American companies, at high prices. (More Corporate goodness)
South Africa was going to buy Aids drugs very cheaply from Argentina, and USA put a stop on it threatening South Africa and Argentina if they went with the deal.
So maybe your example does not really fit here.
You may have been unaware of the real facts.

My point was unrelated to the U.S. helping with Aids in Africa - my point was that the United States STARTED the epidemic in the first place as a form of population control and blamed it on Africans.

How's the story go? Man has sex with monkey in Africa, catches deadly epidemic, man has sex with someone else, chain continues....
Wasn't that in the 80's? Hell, even if it was in the 50's, would the spread of the virus (being sexually transmitted, non-air-born - basically fluid to fluid) have affected as many as it has?

I think there's more to it than we know...

My definition of "me" is "all life".

So if I need help, it won't come from some outside source, but from myself. Any incarnation of God(i.e. myself) can help me and it's still "me" helping me.

Does that make sense?

Swami I didn't see anyone say that human=god means that we should not continue to strive for peace and love  :smirk:

Yes, the African people SHOULD help themselves. The US and others should also try to help, and not for personal gains...just help. I think it is FAR harder to be helped than to help yourself  :wink:

You are part of God. God is everywhere - in you, in your family, in the scents you smell on your way to school/work, and in the vibrations that compose the beautiful symphony of your neighborhood. God is all, and all is god, which in turn, makes you god - not *A* god, but no less a creation of God. God is all knowing, omniscient, all powerful, and ever changing - such are the qualities of ALL.

"Thou art God"

They've been saying that since the 60's.

I like to think of it more along the lines of:

"I am not. God IS"

Not that "thou art God" isn't true... it just tends to lead to psychosis when misinterpreted...

A great post, and its the 12th, what a nice day for it.

Truely controlling your reality is a huge responsiblity. Not too long ago my ego took over, i wanted it so much i would create it, which didn't work. I really glad i have been shown myself, because now that i see myself i don't think i should use such a sword.

Reality conforms to the spirit. I should have learned this already.
