I flow through the universe quietly as time expands and contracts. Every moment is a destination as I arrive. Cleverly disguised as knowledge I become. Energy spreading energy through energy...

I am content without a "God" or a helping hand. Only you can free your mind.

Please fill in the blank then:
"Only a _ _ _ _ says 'there is a God.'"

That's your opinion and is not born out by everyone's experiences.

Some say, "There is a god."

Some say, "There is no god."

How can one claim certitude of the unknown?

Ah!, good question. Perhaps the most welcomed 'gift' from God is that which is called 'assurance.' It comes, when it comes, with eternal moments of rapture - a taste of liberation, of pure freedom.
"Want of assurance is not unbelief. Drooping spirits may be believers. There is a manifest distinction made between faith in Christ, and the comfort of that faith - between believing to eternal life, and knowing we have eternal life. There is a difference between a child's having a right to an estate, and his full knowledge of the title." -Stephen Carnock, Cambridge, 1680

The Zen practitioner must learn not to meditate for the experience of satori. [S]he must meditate simply to meditate. If satori happens, it can be experienced fully before it fades. Likewise, a person of faith continues in his/her way of faith, for the sake of living in a state of faith. If it is genuine faith, it is not wishful thinking. If illumination dawns, bringing assurance of the reality of eternal life, then it is a blessing. For many of us, entheogens may "occasion" just such an illuminating assurance. The Work is to retain that assurance so that we can act from its realization - so we can live and act from a place of joy. Joy is the psychological result of the realization or assurance of eternal life.
