Meditation & Spirituality~ You Are God?

Photobucket

The Holy Trinity in it’s simplest form suggest that God is creator, creature, and the act of creating… God is all in all. This is not to be confused with the idea that the sum total of things equals God. Rather, in truth things are no-thing at all. Life is so whole, so complete, that there are no parts! The creature and the Creator are of one substance. Furthermore, creation is not an event, but Life without beginning or end. Creation is nothing more than that one substance or energy in eternal motion...

“Then he realized; I am this creation, for I have poured it forth from myself.
In that way he became this creation. In verily, he who knows this, becomes in this creation a creator.” - The Upanishads


We participate in this sovereignty to the exact extent that we sacrifice the belief that we are some thing that exist apart from life. We come to total freedom only when we cease to be the impotent idea that engages with life from a safe distance. This idea, also known as the ego, is the only thing that prevents us from realizing that we are in no way discontented, but are in fact a dimension or manifestation of Life. Simply put, the belief that you are not God is the only obstacle to the realization that you were God in the flesh all along!

This misguided belief is sacrificed through an act of complete participation. In other words, the sacrifice and act of complete participation are opposite sides of the same coin. The sacrifice represents the death of the ego, and the act of participation symbolizes the resurrection of the great Reality that has been violently suppressed by confusion and fear. This sacrifice is carried out on the altar of prayer and/or meditation. This sacrifice happens right now!

  1. I came up with this idea completely on my own - without knowing anything about the philosophies or religions that emphasize it. It dawned on me as if it were a program being switched on.

    Since then, I have been seaking it out - trying to learn more and understand it better. The concept changed my life and has allowed me to not live in fear (fear of death, fear of hell, fear of losing people etc).

    There is something to it. Everywhere I look, I see proof of a divine connection. In art, science, literature, poetry, everything - the same ideas keep coming up over and over. They're not forced like so much of modern dogma - they just erupt from the creative process - as if we have the answer inside us (and always did) - because we do - because we ARE the creators. Am I making any sense?

  2. Yes Jeremy, you are making perfect sense... We could even take it one step further; we are the answer.

  3. Jesus Christ belonged to the true race of prophets. He saw with open eye the mystery of the soul. Drawn by its severe harmony, ravished with its beauty, he lived in it, and had his being there. Alone in all history, he estimated the greatness of man. One man was true to what is in you and me. He saw that God incarnates himself in man, and evermore goes forth anew to take possession of his world. He said, in this jubilee of sublime emotion, `I am divine. Through me, God acts; through me, speaks. Would you see God, see me; or, see thee, when thou also thinkest as I now think.' But what a distortion did his doctrine and memory suffer in the same, in the next, and the following ages! There is no doctrine of the Reason which will bear to be taught by the Understanding. The understanding caught this high chant from the poet's lips, and said, in the next age, `This was Jehovah come down out of heaven. I will kill you, if you say he was a man.' The idioms of his language, and the figures of his rhetoric, have usurped the place of his truth; and churches are not built on his principles, but on his tropes. Christianity became a Mythus, as the poetic teaching of Greece and of Egypt, before. He spoke of miracles; for he felt that man's life was a miracle, and all that man doth, and he knew that this daily miracle shines, as the character ascends. But the word Miracle, as pronounced by Christian churches, gives a false impression; it is Monster. It is not one with the blowing clover and the falling rain. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

  4. Had I known this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson existed I would have had time to go eat lunch with my friends yesterday, because I would have just copied and pasted it into my blog... Thanks Rhea, and it is good to hear from you again. I also posted a new topic in the discussion group.
