@cosmiclemonade, Ah, excellent responses. I will explain the last two.

Now, this is a theory I’ve been mulling over after having my mind balls deep in all things religious, so, bare with me.

Lets pretend God exists, lets pretend that he is up sitting in Heaven watching down on Earth with his Angels. Now, lets pretend even further. Imagine that God and his Angels have sat for millions of years and watched Nature come to life, watched Nature unfold since the beginning of Time, all by His will. God has not explained to his Angels exactly what he is doing, only to Watch. Now, as they’re watching, they’re watching nature unfold. You go through the steps of evolution and alas, humans come. And these humans appear to be in the image of Christ, just as the Angels are made in the image of Christ (mull that over in your head for a minute)

Let’s look in a little closer. These humans, apart of Nature, start to act vicious. Violent, in nature, but they stand apart for they love, of which is stronger than most beings. They grow clan like, form a community, are social. And they love. They have made a connection unlike any other living force. God isn’t aware of this effortless love. What if God WASN’T aware of what He was creating? Was He expecting humans to be all loving as they are, could that be a reason why they don’t believe in a God himself, for if there IS an all loving God, why would He allow atrocities to happen? Is the reason why humans stray from the belief there is a God because there is so much negativity? Ah, but if God lives through us, and he is all aware of what we suffer through, what is the point of being an all knowing God, when you already know what there is to know. Wouldn’t that mean this God isn’t all knowing? That He is not, for if He has to live through us to experience what it is to be human, assuming that God isn’t human, because quite frankly if I were to believe in any God, that being certainly isn’t human. Thats neither here nor there, my point being, God is not all knowing. For if God were all knowing, He would know the depth of love – the protection of a mother and a child, the passion with another, the love of a family. This type of love goes above and beyond and sort of sacrifice. Blasphemy! You may say. But what if God went through life playing by rules of what he’s observed from afar, toying with what we have acknowledged. What if all of this is part of God’s own experiment, to understand why HE is here.

Because for as longs as humans have walked this Earth, we have always accepted that there may be a being out there controlling this, for we cannot even begin to comprehend how we got here, how we exist, and not just as a race, but as a universe. It brings upon more questions, all of which we point upwards, to a God.

In regards to Hell, Hell could merely be a place where we roam around for eternity facing our wrongs, how we wronged others, and passing on forgiveness. That’s a more comfortable theory. However, referring back to the previous post of whoever you are, for I am reluctant to go back and @ your name, you are correct the Hell we are informed of isn’t mentioned ANYWHERE in the Bible, I am very aware. But I do not believe that an Angel of Christ sent down from Heaven for seeing the wrong in His ways because the Angel formed free will and called out God is the leader of a place where we wallow forever. No, I refuse to believe there is such a place. Because I would like to believe that if there was something this intricate set up, the Big Man running all this is well versed in the effects of energy pooling together to form a massive force, a force enough to break through and free – and I’m referring to the cry of souls.

However, it leaves room to question many things. Isn’t it wonderful philosophy, to ponder such greatness? To sit back and reflect on all things? Isn’t it a curious thing, this thing called God?

Thanks for taking the time to respond, and possibly read this.
Again, just a theory.

I like this thread, it seems the OP has taking thoughts out of my head and placed them here, but I question hitler going to heaven. Maybe when he finally return to the All, but I don’t believe he went to hell or heaven after his life. But I’ll throw 2 different question.

What are your thoughts on reincarnation?

Would you say all life in the universe works like a hierarchy? Example: Dogs eventually graduate to human level consciousness? Maybe rodents graduating to dogs level of consciousness?

“God” Is every living organism alive for the same purpose, or does every individual living thing have it’s own separate purpose for existence. Is there even a purpose for our existence or are we a coincidental result of our parents having sex with each other?

@cosmiclemonade, Hey. Why do you run the world by the code of bullshido? Why do you allow so much bad stuff to happen for no reason, while other people act like total meat-dicks and not only do they always get away with it, but they keep getting more all the while? Why do you try people with life tests that they can’t pass, what’s the point of that? Christ on toast.

Hey GOD (or should I say myself? or another self-realized(?) aspect of myself) I have a couple questions:
1. I know that I am that I am but how do I experience this (in my everyday experience)?
2. Is there a particular daily practice I can use to help me stop forming attachments to illusions and become aware of awareness (or remember who I really am)
3. I find it difficult to maintain faith in my belief that I am already one with the present moment (which is GOD eternally recreating himself as I understand it), do you have any advise on how I can maintain awareness of the present.
4. How can I best raise my frequency (or should I say raise the frequency of the physical body which is manifesting within me)
5. How does an enlightened being experience reality?

A lot of you are either angry or joking, or both. But I’m not getting paid to put up with your attitudes, so you will get no direct response. Ironically, if you approached God(your higher self) like that, you would inhibit real discussion in a similar way.

@isabelaech, Who never has to worry? Everyone struggles. Those who no longer struggle are enlightened through the realizations their past struggles gave them. Why wake up in the castle? What good would it do? What good would winning the lottery do? Everyone who wins the lottery suddenly finds every person they ever knew calling them to borrow or ask for money. Would the world really be any better for you if you had lived a life of luxury? You would not even know the meaning of LIFE (literally OR semantically).

Imagine you are in a room full of buttons. Theres a button for every thing, experience, or relationship. And so you have fun with that for a while, until you get sort of board and decide to try an experience where you forget that you are actually in the button room. You have an amazing adventure which you are a part of without knowing it is an illusion. You get back to the button room and think “My gosh that was amazing!”. So you continue thinking up new ways to forget Ultimate Reality, until you eventually come across a button labeled “SUPRISE”. You press it, and HERE WE ARE!!

@grandkintaro777, I can see why you would question my claim that Hitler went directly to heaven, but I would respond with a comment about time: After death, there is no time from the perspective of the soul. Or, at least, no time as we have defined it. The souls perception of time when separated with the body depends on that souls perspectives. So while it may be true that Hitler did not go directly to Heaven, it may also be true that he did just that!! Its a dichotomy.

I think of reincarnation as a cycle and not a ladder. There is no beginning nor end to a circle.

Also, think of a house with many rooms. The rooms all have the same air which permeates the whole house. Although, some rooms may exhibit different qualities including everything from being stuffy or warm to being drafty or cold. Even distinctions such as moisture or dust in the air may cause certain rooms to “feel” different and distinct even though its the same air throughout the entire house. Think of the rooms as our bodies, and of the air as our souls. Our bodies and individual souls always express differently, though they are composed of exactly the same air which fills all the rooms. Hope this helps.

@phishphan, It depends on your perspective of life purpose. If your worldview entails a deterministic process which allows no free will, then you have no purpose and you are merely the result of coincidental sex between two people. If, however, you see the workings of fate and destiny in your life, if you feel a greater Truth that connects all humans, then yes indeed there is a unifying purpose for every living being. There is no objective answer to this question. It all depends on YOUR OWN TRUTH.

@bdube, 1. Through not knowing who you are.

2. Simply ask yourself at all times “Is this who I wish to be?” or “Is this who I truly am?”. There came a time for me when these questions became “What would love do now?” and “What would God say now?”. This is because I wish to be love and I wish to speak with Gods voice. I wish these things because I feel very deeply that I truly am GOD. God is what I wished to be, God is who I truly am, God is what I always was.

3. Forget belief. Simply have faith. Faith in belief is the most positively unfaithful thing you could do. It is false faith. Desperate hope masquerading as faith. True faith is a feeling which accepts the things outside of our power to change, and thus changes them. This is done through a shift in perspective. Shifts in perspective shift the world my friend.

4. The best way would be to just do it. :) If thats not possible, you’d have to go with the next best way: a shift in perspective.

5. You’ll have to ask God directly. Its more of a feeling rather than something I’m able to describe accurately. Especially since I’m not what I would consider enlightened (though that very consideration is probably what keeps me from enlightenment).

Thats all for now!!!

Is Christianity’s idea about the purpose of life factual? If so, it seems that what You value more than love and peace and happiness is worshiping yourself. How is that a selfless thing to be following?

if you are omnipotent, didn’t you know when you created certain people that they would deny you, therefore damning them into a fiery pit before they are even cast into existence? that seems a bit sadistic to me.

also, if “heaven” and “hell” are real, what happens if one of our loved ones, who is a non-believer, goes to hell and we go to heaven? we cannot have eternal happiness while knowing that someone so dear to us is burning for eternity. are they just completely wiped from our memories?

@grandkintaro777, God would ask you to give YOUR insight on the purpose of life. God and I would both say that life purpose has to do with creating and discovering, revealing and remembering your own insights as well as purposes.

At a certain threshold of understanding though, yes, our subjective purposes serve the same pervasive purpose: CREATION!! At all levels we are creating so that we may remember and experience Who We Really Are.

@born2tap, No it is not factual and there is no eternal damnation. Be careful when subconsciously attributing human qualities to God. It leads only to discontent, disconnection, and ultimately resentment of something which you only imagined.

@searchingforthetruth, Thanks for the input. I’ll remember to get your approval next time. :)

@c0r1, There is no fiery pit. God damns no one, they only damn themselves. There would be no purpose to creation if our freedom of choice was limited by the gun to the head which is hellfire and damnation in the afterlife.

@donjaime23, Consciousness undulates differently, though its the same as life except for you have no “body”. You create through thought rather than word or deed in the afterlife. Think of the possible affect this will have on your psyche, considering you are still expressing through the conduit of a mind-like awareness. That very awareness would change dramatically upon the realization that thought creates not only you, but the entire universe. This change in awareness would lead to a progressively more adapted process of creation, allowing you to summon any person you wish to be with. You will hear all the answers to all the questions you wish to hear from whoever you wish to hear them from: Jesus, Einstein, your mom or dad, your best friend, and extra terrestrial anyone. That is until you reach your threshold where every question you could ever conceive has been answered, not on an intellectual level, but an experiential one. This next threshold sends you in a variety of directions, depending on where you are ready to go.

You may continue to the source of all things, or you may incarnate where or whenever you wish, even in your previous body yes like Jesus. But, get this, you can even decide to incarnate in your same body BEFORE YOU DIED. Yes, you can go back to your body before it died, and continue living instead of choosing to die, though most beings who do this have no memory of dying. I don’t know if you understand the implications of this, but they are grand indeed. This means that NOTHING you do and NOTHING that happens to you can be outside of your own free choice to experience it.

BTW, I’m getting most of this from the Conversations with God book series. One of the later ones, Home with God, explains in detail what happens when you die. Read it. Its the best explanation I’ve ever heard for death, and its way better than what I could scrounge from my memory for this post.

Anonymous (0) (@) 10 years, 1 month ago ago

@captdugan, But, you are too.

@grandkintaro777, thank you!! :)

@kspirals, People in todays world are not aware of their heart of hearts, their true self, their higher self, their christ within. They, in moments of desperation, hear echos of echos of the true self, but they do not listen. They analyze, dissect, consume, and distort their inner voice so that natural emotions become unnatural.

It may seem lofty of me to speak of the inner voice with such familiarity, but it is just as familiar to everyone. This is because the inner voice speaks not with words, but with images, feelings, and emotions. A language few can no longer understand, though more do not now than ever before. Here is the language of the five natural emotions:

Grief is a natural emotion. It’s that part of you which allows you to
say goodbye when you don’t want to say goodbye; to express — push
out — the sadness within you at the experience of any kind of
loss. It could be the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a contact
lens.

When you are allowed to express your grief, you get rid of
it. Children who are allowed to be sad when they are sad feel very
healthy about sadness when they are adults, and therefore usually
move through sadness very quickly.

Children who are told, ‘there, there, don’t cry,’ have a hard time
crying as adults. After all, they’ve been told all their life not to
do that. So they repress their grief. Grief that is continually
repressed becomes chronic depression, a very unnatural emotion.

People have killed because of chronic depression. Wars have started,
nations have fallen.

Anger is a natural emotion. it is the tool you have which allows you
to say, ‘no, thank you.’ It does not have to be abusive, and it
never has to be damaging to another.

When children are allowed to express their anger, they bring a very
healthy attitude about it to their adult years, and therefore
usually move through their anger very quickly.

Children who are made to feel that their anger is not okay — that
it is wrong to express it, and in fact, that they shouldn’t even
experience it — will have a difficult time appropriately dealing
with their anger as adults.

Anger that is continually repressed becomes rage, a very unnatural
emotion.

People have killed because of rage. Wars have started, nations have
fallen.

Envy is a natural emotion. It is the emotion that makes a
five-year-old wish he could reach the doorknob the way his sister
can– or ride that bike. Envy is the natural emotion that makes you
want to do it again, try harder, to continue striving until you
succeed. It is very healthy to be envious, very natural. When
children are allowed to express their envy, they bring a very
healthy attitude about it to their adult years, and therefore usually
move through their envy very quickly. Children who are made to feel
that envy is not okay — that it is wrong to express it, and, in
fact, that they shouldn’t even experience it — will have a
difficult time appropriately dealing with their envy as adults.

Envy that is continually repressed becomes jealousy, a very
unnatural emotion.

People have been killed because of jealousy. Wars have started,
nations have fallen.

Fear is a natural emotion. All babies are born with only two fears:
the fear of falling, and the fear of loud noises. All other fears
are learned responses, brought to the child by its environment,
taught to the child by its parents. The purpose of natural fear is
to build in a bit of caution. Caution is a tool that helps keep the
body alive. It is an outgrowth of love. Love of Self.

Children who are made to feel that fear is not okay — that it is
wrong to express it, and in fact, that they shouldn’t even
experience it– will have a difficult time appropriately dealing
with their fear as adults.

Fear that is continually repressed becomes panic, a very unnatural
emotion.

People have killed because of panic. Wars have started, nations have
fallen.

Love is a natural emotion. When it is allowed to be expressed, and
received, by a child, normally and naturally without limitation or
condition, inhibition, or embarrassment, it does not require
anything more. For the joy of love expressed and received in this
way is sufficient unto itself. Yet love which has been conditioned,
limited, warped by rules and regulations, rituals and restrictions,
controlled, manipulated, and withheld, becomes unnatural.

Children who are made to feel that their natural love is not okay —
that it is wrong to express it, and in fact, they shouldn’t even
experience it– will have a difficult time appropriately dealing
with love as adults.

Love that is continually repressed becomes possessiveness, a very
unnatural emotion.

People have been killed because of possessiveness. Wars have
started, nations have fallen.

And so it is that the natural emotions, when repressed, produce
unnatural reactions and responses. And most natural emotions are
repressed in most people. Yet these are your friends. These are your
gifts. These are your divine tools, with which to craft your
experience.

You are given these tools at birth. They are to help you negotiate
your life.
