During my life, my belief in "God" has gone through many phases from; not at all, maybe there is, how could there be, why should I believe, and yes, I believe with all my heart. Even today, I struggle with, and am torn, about whether there is a "God" or not? Honestly, I truly and sincerely want to believe there is a "God," but my interpretation of God, might not be in the same shopping basket as others who are looking for the same item. But that's O K, because I can accept and respect that, without any judgement at all,can you?
I believe that "God is," and he's a part of all of us. I use the word "he," but I don't believe that "God" is he or she, "God" just IS. In my belief of "God," one must step outside the "body" and our "unconscious mind," to truly connect with him. I also believe that certain individuals like; Buddha, Jesus, Plato, and others, were enlightened teachers, who were here to help us understand what "God" is and how we should best lead our lives.
One of the most important virtues of the "God" I believe in is LOVE. Through the act of "Love," anything is possible. When you "Love," you can also "forgive," which I truly believe brings you so much closer to enlightenment. We are all here for some reason, right? I don't feel that the "God" I believe in, who is "perfect," would create suffering and pain. I'm pretty sure all of us, in our unconscious minds, are responsible for that.
I am currently reading a book titled; "THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE UNIVERSE," by Gary R. Renard, and it has most definitely challenged my way of thinking when it comes to "God," and introduces new realities that are so obvious, yet, overlooked by almost all of us. Whether I believe everything in its entirety or only certain pieces, it will be "my choice," to believe what I want.
Until next time my dear friends, "May You Be Blessed With Lots Of Love, Plenty Of Light To Guide You, and Perfect Energy From The Source!"
