What would the world be like if everyone treated each other the way they have been taught to treat God? Of course that is a hard one. There will always be some people we don’t like, or that we disagree with. In some cases this boils up into hatred. That is the killer. If you first love yourself, then you will love God. That can be stretched to all others. When one recognizes that everyone including yourself is God, then you will learn to love everyone. Where love abides, there is no hate. Where there is light, there is no darkness. But, we will continue to have hate and darkness as long as some perceive God as some entity outside of themselves rather than the true recognition that every man, woman and child, regardless of race or ethnicity .. indeed, every sentient being on this planet and on other planets as well is collectively God.
The TRUTH is: man is not evil. Man becomes evil by being told (brainwashed) that he is evil. How could God create something evil? How could God be evil? The real evil comes from preachers who preach that man is evil and needs to be saved. This is a false doctrine.
I have never said “we are gods.“ I said WE ARE God. Singular. “There can be only one.” “Shemai Israel Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad.” You’re still caught up in the mindset of individuality. That is a false concept. There is only ONE, There is only God. And WE (everyone) are Him/Her, Salvation comes from this knowledge.
NOT KNOWING is what makes people evil. Those who KNOW are only GOOD. ONLY God. Grok?
Darkness does not exist. Darkness is ONLY the absence of Light. Where there is Light there can be no Darkness. So, where there is God there can be no evil. So, evil does not really exist, only in those that deny the knowledge. Thou art God.
Actually (1:) I’m not (and have never said that I am) God by myself. You are part of that too, along with your brothers, wives, children, neighbors, etc., ad infinitum. (2:) Being God is the ultimate in responsibility. ““Thou art God’. It’s not a message of cheer and hope. It’s a defiance – and an unafraid, unabashed assumption of personal responsibility.” It means I am not just responsible for my own survival. I am responsible for the survival of everyone in the collective. But, you can be an individual, bone on your own, “every man for himself” Marboro Man kind of guy. When the cells of your body act like that we call it Cancer.
