You and I and everyone else, are G-d

It’s not a new idea you know.
Jesus himself said that “I and the Father are One,” and if he, a Rabbi
from a (then) obscure religion in a backward country is, then we all
are or can be. George Fox (one of the founders of the Religious
Society of Friends (Quakers)
) said, ” Go out into the world and answer
to that of G-d in everyman.” Hindu’s greet one another with the word,
“Namaste,” which means something like “G-d within me greets
G-d within you..”

Someone in Satsung suggested that divinity is an energy field
— like the Force. It surrounds us; it’s inside of us; we breathe
and drink and eat it.

Someone else said that “G-d is perfect.”
Sorry, no G-d’s or G-ddesses are perfect. The Judeo-Christian
G-d is supposed to be (and believers in Him are required to
believe that)
, but no, even a casual reading of the  Tenach (what
Christians refer to as the Old Testament) reveals a G-d of many,
many faults, many listed as forbidden behavior in His own laws
(He’s a “do as I say, not as I do” sort of G-d). I won’t go into that
in detail. As you read further into SiaSL, you’ll encounter Jubal’s
commentary on this.

The Greco-Roman deities are great examples.
They’re always breaking the rules. The Celtic pantheons are
no better. Hindu deities do things a mink breeder wouldn’t
tolerate. 🙂 In every mythos it’s the same: the deities are the
mirror images of ourselves. Or we can say that G-d is made
in our own image (and then the opposite is true to – if we are
made in the image of G-d, then that’s why we
act like him).

We’re all fledgling G-ds here.
We’re learning how to be G-ds, and unlearning how not to
be. It’s, as Pappaji said, a lifetime learning experience. We
will make mistakes. That’s part of the learning process. Hopefully,
we’ll learn from each other, and grow in perfect love and
perfect trust If we just grok that small part, we are half way there.

Ok, so let’s say that one or more of you
are thinking: “No, I could never believe that. I’m not a G-d and can
never be one and none of these folks
are either.”  Well, that’s your
choice. Just as a Cancer cell chooses to follow the ways of Cancer,
then you too are choosing to serve the dark side. That’s your choice.

We all have free will after all.
