Greeting me brethren and sistrens,
As an existential individual being I believe not. What is the point of oneís belief if one knows not; you either no something or you donít, what do you believe in? Were you created or do you simply exist? Do you really know GOD; is this belief, your own experience or just borrowed knowledge?
For thousands of years man has believed in all kindsí of theological theories and hypothesis about god and the universe. Many people believe that the universe was created, but this seems rather strange. If it was created then surely there would have been evidence of a documented witness. Notwithstanding, if god created the universe then the question inevitably arises, who created god? Now surely one can see the potential infinite regression thatís bound to accure in such a question, is it not simple logic? As far as my conscious awareness abounds I see neither creator nor creation. A creation means full stop, if you call it a creation then you reduce it to a thing; there is no life in a thing, only death. There is only existence which has been here always from the very beginning of time. In fact there is no beginning to it; it has always been here. It simply is, itís as simple as that. Sure one can argue against it but one must ask oneís self is the argument authentic i.e. Has it arisen out of your very being; your intelligence. Or is it just another belief system made up of borrowed knowledge, do you actually know?
If one is truly awake and consciously aware of oneís own being, one would realise one is born as a tabula rasa, a clean slate; you come into this world naked. Without mind, ego, personality, greed, envy, jealousy, tradition, convention, ideologies, religion and BELIEF - you didnít even have a name. You came in with nothing but an intelligent individuality which is fundamentally intrinsic to your being. You had nothing but a will to survive. Unfortunately society had a different plan Ė the individual has now become a personality which is more or less what you are today. Stamp like cattle you are thrust into society to serve your worth, you become one of many sheep in the crowd, the mob or collective, you are no more the individual but a personality, which you cling to as if itís the very life blood that runs through your veins. But one must always remember the personality is always in reference to the other, it is a social phenomenon. For instance, if you were in this world on your own, who would be there to tell you are black or white? Who would be there to tell you that you are a kind, generous and loving person? Who would be there to tell you that you are talented or beautiful? There would need to be a contrast which could only arise out of the other; a personality would be an impossibility without the other. You wouldnít know it, just like you wouldnít know night without the contrasting day or up without the down or the valleys without the peaks. Your personality is not yours but given to you by societies, always remember.
Simple psychology will tell you that man has been yearning for a god like figure to solve all the ills of society and the world over from time memorial. This has arisen simply because man seems to have forgotten that he is not separate from the reality outside of himself and to overcome this problem he has poured his whole heart into religious ideologies in the form of a belief system. It doesnít really matter what belief system it is, there are literally thousand to choose from. But these are just simply toys, they have no real substance they cannot stand alone Ė they are not substantial like water. You drop your belief you can still live, you drop water youíre a dead man period. If you are deep in spiritual sleep you will simply find another belief to cling to. Iím most certainly sure that when you were innocent children your parent were continually pouring their old wine into your new skins, along with the priests and pastors with their doctrine of traditional conventions (old wine). If you go back in history throughout the ages, you will notice that whenever an enlightened one comes with a little light the followers always error by clinging to the lamp, and forget about the light which shines. This happened with Jesus, thus we are inundated with believers who seem to be enthralled with a posthumous life of theosophical egoism.
You are not separate, you are just a part of an orgasmic whole of which the part cannot be more than the whole, if you think in term of the part the ego, you become a small minded narrow mind, if you take in the gestalt of the whole you will realise that you are just a drop in an oceanic pool consciousness. You are it, you are existence and existence is you. There is no need for neither outside creator nor inside mediator; existence is whole and complete unto itself.
It is so mediocre to be hypothesizing of god when one knows not of oneís self. The notion of god pales into insignificance when one realises the vastness of one own being let alone that of the cosmos. The fervent seeking of god; putting aside such childish endeavours is its natural corollary.
As long as man move along the horizontal plane, man will always be a slave; in some form of slavery whether spiritual mental or physical. Nobody is going to save or liberate you but yourself. Nobody will be coming back to save anybody Ė existence never repeats itself, there is not a single blade of grass the same nor a grain of sand the same shape. There is only one reality - the here and now. No passed, this is simply your memory and no future this is not yet; no heaven no hell. Drop the mind and all its junk will follow, then an only then can one feel the ecstasy of life. Because life is a flux an ongoing processes just like you. There is no end to you, you were never born and you will never die. Only the mind ego and its skin bag encounter death, all you need do is encounter the reality. One needs to move along the vertical so your consciousness rises to the higher planes so that your roots penetrate deep into existence just like the roots of a tree which are always proportionate to its branches; existence always maintains the balance. As an existential disciple, you must know; it is just so.
Death along with god is two of the biggest lies ever to have been told mankind, in the bible it says ďAnd god created man in his own image.Ē This is simple bullshit. Man created god in his image, god is anthropocentric, an ideal centred on man himself. Man is so narrow mind; he thinks that he is the centre of the universe. His god is just a projection of his mind nothing more.
Man grows old but never seems to grow up, he his very immature, in my experience god is nothing put a problem a fiction that was given to us by the priesthood. And until mankind take responsibility for himself we will always find ourselves within the hierarchy of the ruling elite. Being under any form of dictatorship whether religious or political reduces you to a puppet a social muppet or a sheeple, a psychological sociological slave.
Know yourself and know that religiousness is your authentic being.
