GOD IS THE NAME WE USE FOR THE 'NO - THING' THAT EXISTS BEFORE 'EVERY - THING'.
TO UNDERSTAND THIS 'NO-THING' GOD, HERE'S A QUESTION - THE CHAIR YOU'RE SITTING ON - DID IT CREATE ITSELF?
Dumb question, right? For chairs to exist, first there had to be a type of body to use them, like humans, then a need, then someone had to have brains to design and make them. Chairs are for many uses, so each one had to be made for its own use. Like anything physical, they had to have a creative cause before they could happen.
Same with galaxies. What kind of body type needed a galaxy to sit on? Who designed and created it for them? What was a galaxy before it was a galaxy?
Where did time come from before there was time? What made water wet? Invented mathematics and music? Musical instruments? There had to be some kind of creative engineering genius who lives outside the cage of our universe, outside time and physics because we all know that nothing like chairs or butterflies, galaxies or anything in the universe can create themselves. Everything has to have a cause. Totally logical, right?
Many of the world's top scientists think there is a God. Michio Kaku says he is searching for what he calls "The God Equation". Stephen Hawking said: "...if we discover why we and the universe exist...it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason for then we could know the Mind of God."
While knowing God's mind is not possible, some of our greatest scientific minds like Einstein have concluded there has to be a force called God, many disagree and say the only reality is what can be measured inside physics. Einstein disagrees and has other ideas about what is real. He said:
THIS IS WORTH REPEATING - ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DESCRIPTIONS EVER WRITEN ABOUT WHAT WE HUMANS ARE.
"We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music." Albert Einstein
ACCORDING TO EINSTEIN THE WHOLE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE IS AN ILLUSION AND WE HAVE NON - PHYSICAL SOULS. LET'S SEE WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT GOD.
HE SAYS YES, THERE IS A NON-PHYSICAL SUPERIOR SPIRIT, A 'CHIEF ENGINEER' WE CALL GOD ABOUT WHICH WE CAN ONLY KNOW SOME 'SLIGHT DETAILS' WITH OUR FEEBLE MINDS.
Many scientist like Steven Hawking and Michio Kaku have been looking for a Theory of Everything. The problem is they can only look for 'things' inside the universe and cannot include causal creative consciousness which has to be the source of all 'things'.
So let's bypass the idea of 'theories' and come up with a 'formula' for God. But that's getting too much into the science stuff so we'll look at that later.
But if what we call reality is an illusion here in our world - what is it over there in the world of Spirit? Is it the Mind of God the non-illusion? The Real? While the bodies of Anita Moorjani, Mary Neal and Eben Alexander were dead here, their spirits were still very much alive and completely aware of the new reality that surrounded them on the other side of death, just in a different way. They -
Maintained their individual identities
Were fully conscious but on a wider level
Communicated with thoughts instead of words
Were functioning in bodies made of Spirit
Were in a place where physical laws are irrelevant
SO GUESS WHAT THIS TELLS US?
BODIES DIE BUT SOULS DON'T!
THIS BRING US TO A VERY
GOD CANNOT BE A CREATOR BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS THE ESSENCE OF EVERYTHING!
CREATION CAN ONLY HAPPEN WHERE THERE IS TIME - WHERE THINGS CAN BEGIN AND END, GOD CANNOT GET BIGGER OR SMALLER, BECAUSE GOD ALWAYS 100% GOD. SO .......
AND IF WE WE TAKE THIS ONE STEP FURTHER, this means everything that will ever happen in our lives and in the universe existed in the Mind of God before the universe began! Human life is just a delayed rerun of a flowing river that already exists in the Eternity! When we are born here it's like pressing the start button on a projector to see the completed, edited film called our lives unfold day by day for what to us is the first time.
Like Einstein downloading e=mc2, Bach and music, Tesla and inventions, Edgar Cayce who predicted so much of our 'future' long before it was 'invented', the vision of my wife seven years before we met in clothes she would not buy until four years after my vision, the hunches like 'I knew that was going to happen' that we all experience, these confirm we're all just playing catch-up with what already exists. But we can mold it! We can make it better. That is our job here - to take the jumble of our lives and hopes and dreams and make them into something special.
Our human brains, this physical body we live in, we can only experience what has already happened bit by bit as we flow along in a river called time. As a Spirit friend on mine called Ambres described it, we humans are:
"...moving backwards into the future with our eyes fixed firmly
on the past."
Let's remember the words of beautiful Jesus -
"Know ye not ye are Gods?"
He is telling us our heredity and what God is and how we relate as atoms in God's Body. We also know the potentials we have hidden inside when He told us:
"All these things I have done can ye do and greater things than
these can ye do."
And He also told us how close God is to us when He said:
"The Kingdom of Heaven is within."
It's right here inside us. That's where Anita, Mary and Eben went. Accepting and living this is spirituality. We do not have to BELIEVE anything anymore but instead ACCEPT the reality of who we are and what we are and why we are here in these bodies on this world. It is exactly the same for all of us humans regardless of what we have in our heads. This is not just for those in one religion or another. This is the construction of the physical human, how we are made. It is the way we are built. It doesn't matter what we think or believe, this is how it is. This is who we are.
And all humans have a 'within' so ALL humans have the capacity to reach for heaven and God and get re-charged with love as part of our innate potentials. It is as much part of us and as close to us as water and being wet. This is what God wants and hopes we choose to do. This is our worship for God. This is being spiritual - to be at one with God, part God 's family through all the days of our lives and our own families by using God's language, the language of love. And in this love, we are all brothers and sisters.
Everything is God. There is nothing but God everywhere, including in us. It is what we are made of. So let's turn back to our heredity, live our actual reality. It is the only way to have a great life and the only way to graduate from being human and be reborn in eternal life with God. So let's get back to love, and in our lives help each other love well!
I love the spirituality of all Muslims, that they take a minute or two five times a day turn towards Mecca and pray, giving gratitude to God. Let's all do this, let's all be spiritual by turning to God in the 'Kingdom of heaven within' as Jesus called it and be grateful for the hope of paradise inside all of us that nudges us along through everything in our lives towards our home in heaven.
Let's bring heaven here and now. Let's see God in everything all day everywhere in the beautiful world around us. Let's take time to be grateful many times a day, all day that we have the ability to express God's love here and now and that we will return home at the end of our human journeys. May it be so for all of us!
