Condensing Infinity

Mike's Common Sense

Man's view of God really hasn't changed much in the last 4,000 years. Even today, most people's conception of God resembles Michelangelo's famous depiction on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City. There is God, often depicted as a gray-haired, bearded old man, and there is Man, created by God, but separate and distinct from God.

This sense of being separated from God has been used and compounded by the religions of the world. They have set themselves up as intermediaries between Man and God. This position has given the religions immense power because Man feels he needs a religion to connect him to God. Without this connection, Man has been taught that he will be doomed to an afterlife of eternal damnation.

It is time that mankind be told the truth. The consciousness of mankind has progressed enough that many can finally cut the umbilical cord between the Self and organized religion. Mankind is now an adult and can stand on its own two feet.

The only separation between Man and God is the wall each of us has built to hide ourself from God. The need to hide from God is the result of guilt and shame that has been hammered into us by the religions.

Let's talk about God.

In truth, there is nothing that can be said about God; to do so is to limit the limitless. However, since we are working through a human brain, we cannot comprehend the limitless, so I will try to condense infinity for comprehension purposes. God is, you are. Does that help? No? Then let me condense infinity some more for you. God is love; we exist because God loves us.

Since there is truly no separation between God and Man, does that mean that each of us is God? Because each of us has developed an ego in order to function in this world, that is not totally correct. It would be more correct to say, God is each of us!

Why is there evil and hatred in the world? Each soul has been given free will, and not all have learned the lessons of love. It takes thousands of lifetimes to learn through trial and error all the lessons needed to be learned before revelation has been earned. All of these lessons are about, and based on love.

That is why love has been stressed by every Saint and Savior that has ever come to help Man evolve. All you need is love!

There really is nothing else to say.

May the blessings be.

Hi Muley:

AS you have suggested, I read this Hub.

You use the word "truth" often. Truth is defined as the actual state of things. "Actual" is defined as the "real existence" of something. Existence is defined as an "actual occurrence. Pls tell me how words you use, like soul, god (as you percieve it) can be referred to as "truths?"

Thanks,

Qwark

HI qwark, It is very difficult to prove terms and concepts that are alien to the physical world, in physical terms. One can never believe in something one has had no experience with. I have written many spiritual hubs, and they all contain truths and lessons, but only if the reader is ready for them. I believe you are ready, but you need to do the foot work on your own. The answers you seek are available if you look. Truth is in the eye of the beholder, and no two people totally agree on what truth is. As you learn and have more experiences, your truth will change to reflect that growth; as mine has over the years. peace Mike

Hello Muley

I didnt ask for "proofs" of anything. How did you derive that from my queries?

I am a speaker of "English."

I am also a 60 yr old literalist, pragmatist and logician.

There is only one English definition of the word "truth."

You say: "... I have written many spiritual hubs, and they all contain truths..." The word "spiritual" has many "English" connotations. If you are referring to the incorporeal or "soul" when you use the term "spiritual," there is no "truth involved in either of them.

The "metaphysical," which is what you evidently are involved with, exists only in the imagination of simple human life. There is no "truth" involved.

" Truth is in the eye of the beholder, and no two people totally agree on what truth is..." is pure BS. In English, "truth" can be defined in only one manner: i.e. that which is fact and extant.

Why you continue to use the word "truth" when you write about your alledged "spiritual" experiences only diminishes your credibility in the mind of a learned and sophisticated "seeker" such as I.

By the way, I find your comments to me to be "patronizing." "As you learn and have more experiences, your truth will change to reflect that growth;" presumes that I have not experienced "life." I have been where you are presently, light years ago.

I consider human life that hangs on to such primitive concepts as our existence having special value in the cosmos as being the lesser evolved of the human species.

You refuse to answer my questions referring to the metaphysical. Why?

Qwark, If you read this hub as you say how can you ask these questions.I start the hub with "there is nothing that can be said about God, to do so is to limit the limitless." I do not know if you are a seeker of truth of just wishing to pick a fight.

Hi Muley:

I never pick a fight. I just query.

Again, you mention this "god" thing in your response: "..."there is nothing that can be said about God, to do so is to limit the limitless." I have no idea what you are referring to when you use that word.

I have tried asking you to provide for me how you define this "god" thing you refer to. I would like a direct response from you in a response. Why should I read more of your "Hubs" if I cannot get your definition of the word "god?" the effort would be fruitless.

Thankfully the faith I follow shows the path of Nirvana. Thanks for sharing your point of view.

Hi Vinaya! The path alluded to in this article takes you far beyond Nirvana if you wish to explore. Peace.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on spiritual concepts. I sincerely admire the courage you have in seeking to concretize ideas that cannot be empirically proven. I too believe that words foster technicalities that are very divisive. But maybe we can all be led back to the same understanding if we at least have a faint idea that love is supreme in God's master plan. -Quirinus
