    Why are most people afraid of their innate godlikeness?   Why are people refuse to accept their divineness?   Are people loathe to realize their godlike power?  Your thoughts?

    I think most of the conflict comes from traditional Christianity as most Christians are taught that it is wrong to aspire to become like God.

      Totally agree, Mr. Richardson.   Most Christian religionists are taught that they are nothing.  They are programmed to slavishly follow.  They are told that to question & to use their potential are akin to mortal transgressions.  They are further inculcated that to believe that they are co-creators w/God is beyond abominable, even damnable.  Thank you for responding.

        I did a sand sculpture called kingdom within. Won a world championships with the concept.  All architectype within your own kingdom such as ...

        The wizard of Majic love posion and wisdom.

        Warrior of not violence or war yet of fighting for the truth and beauty.

        Court Jester, to say things to the king without having your head cut off.

        The king. The management of everything.

        The idea is write your own script of your own life Or the rest of will do that for you. I promise you, when they own you, they will never lead you better than you can.  Or be as loving and kind as you can for yourself overall.

        Gmwilliams-
        Not sure if you're a Marvel fan,  but I thought of this topic with the movie Captain Marvel.

    If you're asking why people lack confidence in themselves, I would say that confidence is the result of doing things and accepting that one can do them.

    If you are genuinely asking why we don't accept our divinity, all I can say is that no atheist I know of thinks that we are divine.

    It's not fear.

    It's just that we accept that we're perfectly capable of doing things without having to be divine.

    I have to agree with the lines of thinking of you and a couple of other commenters. I used to be a Baptist until I awakened. We were taught that we were sinners, unworthy of God's love, and that through grace we could be saved. Not works resulting from love of our fellow man, but by believing that the blood of the (flesh and blood) only begotten son of God could save us. That fairy tale is more ridiculous than believing that we are actually part of the universal creator and have no need for salvation because the creator is not going to destroy part of itself.

    Christians are afraid to open up and think for themselves. They have been known to say that they didn't want to consider the spiritual possibility because they didn't want to have to question their established belief system. Christians are told that if they live a good Christian life and find out that they are wrong when they die, then they've really lost nothing. Yes, they have. They've lost the opportunity to grow into true spiritual beings and to not have to reincarnate to live that lost life over again. Same thing for atheists.

    My atheist father tried to contact me a few years after he passed. I wonder what he was trying to tell me. That I was right, or that I need to re-establish my "Christian belief in Jesus or I'll go to Hell. HA!

      I'm sure if there was a God and you were a decent human being and a good person  your whole life. Compared to Hitler who was born and died a Catholic. God would accept you, over Hitler.

      At my Mom's funeral, my brother did his speech (He is a pastor). My brother promised everybody at the funeral hall, that our Mom will be looking over us from beautiful heaven.

      Then my speech, my Mother was a closet Atheist her whole life, she only talked to me about it. It Did not, go over well, with over 100 Catholics in the room.
      To myself, Sorry I can not keep or live a lie.
