Whenever we speak of the unseeing authoritative ethical and moral God, we’re talking about a creator who doesn’t actually exist, but fully lives and breathes within our limited thoughts – a diminutive portion of what truly is. This organized religious God we speak of isn’t of some upper paradise, but stems from the superior ego – the ego of the collective; a complex concept made up of morals, ethics, even policies and procedures; it is a part of our social, cultural and religious environment – the part of the collective ego we’ve fully disowned, because it sits too high upon a heavenly pedestal, too sacred for us to believe it to be our own.
This god we created, is now here to govern us from the temptations of a so-called Satan which really is our very own id; the same id that is capable of bringing us to our personal salvation. Yes, the chaotic id: the liberated free spirited facet of the human mind, intertwined with the flesh; the shameful part of ourselves we’re constantly at war with – a war within where surrender lies within the fantasy of the optimist which takes place deep within where the ego and the id fight to the finish – seeking dominance, so that one day, one will stand tall, sitting at the thrown of the self-attained.
Now there’s a solution to all this; the answer is right in front of us – but when an enlightened being who lives beyond social constructs, tells us who and what God really and truly is, we as primitives are so quick to chastise; we condemn him with cursed lips chanting, “He’ll be doomed by a flickering light of the stricken”, we believe this individual would be smitten by a vengeful God we claimed has given us the gift of free will; one who gives man the right to think critically and to speak his personal truths.
Because of this rigid belief we’re unwilling to discard, this god is here to stay; even if we destroy the collective ego, eradicating all unifying bodies of governance – burning down all religious scriptures and law books. But even if we were able to rid of this god, then the collective id of high chaotic entropy would break lose tearing order apart, ready to reassemble once we fulfill our wants and selfish desires with more disenchantment.
So here we are, stuck with an overseer we believe has domination over us and it does; as long as we believe it’s against all that is sinful. We even say that this type of a god is the ultimate being and it is; never realizing that we the so-called limited beings we say we are, is making all the decisions. This disciplinary God which really is a religious concept of man-made law has no rule over the masses, until we give it power to do so; it is a fictional god, a lord of the land with no land to own; which is now real, but we’re the ones who are actually in control. It is a god we govern, a god we rule, a god we tame who walks on a leash; it is a god playing god in reverse; a four legged loyal beast which is man’s best friend, who obeys our every command – but somehow without our knowledge.
Now I’m here to tell you that you can never know God until you look over the shoulder of the golden idol in front of you. Our true and living God, the essence behind everything, isn’t separate from us; The Everything which exists within and is The Limitless Collective of Imaginative Superminds of everything that is All. To know the true and living God, is to know that there is no god playing a God some of us claim to know; and once we fully awaken to this truth, bondage of the oblivious becomes no more.
Now there is a creator, there is indeed; yet I say there is no God, because there’s no God outside of You; everything you believe to be external, is created by your own perspective from within; even the very unique perspective created by you is You! You are Consciousness, Essence, Spirit, Existence, Ultimate-Reality playing the role as God playing the physical, psychological and the emotional you; the True You isn’t a being; You are a Presence – a Presence being Present, presented by the same Presence which is simultaneously Absent; this Presence is playing the many roles as energy, particles, atoms, molecules, cells, matter, objects/being(s), macro systems and all its operational functions; it is an incredible Essence always within your reach, only because You have the power to believe it to be so – yet you give all your power to a creator created by You the true A.l.l.a.h. (two arms, two legs and one head). So tell me…who’s the god now?
