The Universe is the Creator, in Itself.

Now we know of the tremendous electrical energy that surges through the visible Universe and powers the stars and galaxies, one might call that God.

To me, it is the Supreme Being.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28227913



To me, 'Supreme Being' is another euphemism.

So, where did this electrical energy come from?

It seems to me people use it who are embarrassed to be lumped in with religious folk, its like a politically correct term to describe the Creator.

The Universe is a creation, not the Creator.

As soon as you make the concept "god" or "creator", you are putting these into a human framed concept and therefore encasing them into the limitations of the human brain.

In other words calling it "god" or "creator" or even trying to frame it into any kind of notion is an act of insult to said "god" force, right?

"White privilege" is the liberal religion's version of Original Sin: you are born guilty, and you carry that burden of guilt all your life, and the only way to escape eternal damnation is for white people confess their sin, to bow, kneel and believe the dogma of the Church of Liberalism, genuflect at its altars, honor its saints, fill the collection plate, and never, ever doubt.

Yeah, whatever, that doesn't take away the fact that implying humans are "the all" is unsubstantiated and pretty much illogical in every sense. Let go of fanciful preconceptions, the only thing we know for certain is that humans are conscious of a very small spectrum of what exists and even that we see in a distorted manner.

The Universe is a creation, not the Creator.
 Quoting: K.Kool


The Creator is All-That-Is.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28127106


Yes. There is no separate Creator.

It is Everything. It is the only thing that really exists.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28227913


No. We exist.

Inside "It".


Here OP, have a read on this, tell me what you think...


"This absolute, ever-expanding, instantaneous psychic gestalt, which you call God if you prefer, is so secure in its existence that it can constantly break itself down and rebuild itself.

Its energy is so unbelievable, that it does indeed form all universes; and because its energy is within and behind all universes, systems and fields, it is indeed aware of each sparrow that falls, for it is each sparrow that falls.

Now - and this will seem like a contradiction in terms - there is nonbeing. It is a state of, not of nothingness, but a state in which probabilities and possibilities are known and anticipated but blocked from expression.

Dimly, through what you would call history, hardly remembered, there was such a state. It was a state of agony in which the powers of creativity and existence were known, but the ways to produce them were not known.

This is the lesson that All That Is had to learn, and that could not be taught. This is the agony from which creativity originally was drawn, and its reflection is still seen.

Some of this discussion is bound to be distorted, because I must explain it to you in terms of time as you understand it. So I will speak for your benefit, of some indescribably distant past in which these events occurred.

All That Is retains memory of that state, and it serves as a constant impetus - in your terms - toward renewed creativity. Each self (you), as a part of All That Is therefore also retains memory of that state. It is for this reason that each minute consciousness is endowed with the impetus toward survival, change, development, and creativity. It is not enough that All That Is as a primary energy gestalt, desires further being, but each portion of It (you) also carries this determination.

Yet the agony itself was used as the means, and the agony itself served as the impetus, strong enough so that All That Is initiated within Itself the means to be.

If - and this is impossible - all portions but the most minute last 'unit' of All That Is were destroyed, All That Is would continue, for within the smallest portion is the innate knowledge of the whole. All That Is protects Itself, therefore, and all that It has and is and will create.

When I speak of All That Is, you must understand my position within It. All That Is knows no other. This does not mean that there may not be more to know. It does not know whether or not other psychic gestalts like It exist. It is not aware of them if they do exist. It is constantly searching. It knows that something else existed before Its own primary dilemma when it could not express itself.

It is conceivable then, that It has evolved, in your terms, so long ago It has forgotten Its origin, that It has developed from still another Primary which has - again, in your terms - long since gone Its way. So there are answers that I cannot give you, for they are not known anywhere in the system in which we have our existence. We do know that within this system of our All That Is, creation continues and developments are never still.

I may be formed by the same matter that forms everything but that doesn't make me everything. I am not trying to separate me, I am separated, that's the way the universal laws work. We are born with individual consciousnesses to experience life subjectively to our experience and anyone who says we are merely the consciousness of one all pervasive being experiencing existence separately through us has no basis to prove it.

 Quoting: K.Kool


Where did "god" come from?

If you think the universe had to be created by someone, obviously god had to be created by someone if he should exist, because in your mind then nothing can come out of nothing, right? Your question falls on it's own logic.
Just because we are alive does not mean we know how to live.

You, as in the self, the self of the universe. Playing all parts, everywhere. All that you see is you, but that seems strange at first doesn't it? Human nature these days feel isolated and foreign in this world, the self.

Humans may be a fractal reflection of the whole but that doesn't mean they ARE the whole.
 Quoting: Manu-Koelbren


It's perspective. We receive information that we've chosen. There is no true objective "everything". There is only what you personally perceive. To assume otherwise is to buy into illusion of your own making. Trust is just a nice way of convincing you to lie to yourself.
 Quoting: Jesse Sovoda


Yeah, whatever, that doesn't take away the fact that implying humans are "the all" is unsubstantiated and pretty much illogical in every sense. Let go of fanciful preconceptions, the only thing we know for certain is that humans are conscious of a very small spectrum of what exists and even that we see in a distorted manner.
 Quoting: Manu-Koelbren


What do you mean "we" know? You are only capable of knowing what YOU know. Everything else was told to you. "We" as humans are not all there is. YOU as YOU are.
Maybe... you are all powerful... all knowing... forever present in all ways... you've chosen to forget... remember?

You are the originator of that energy. And there is no final way to conceive that.

And forget parts, or no parts either. Definition will only confuse you more. Instead, sit, and watch it all happen of itself.
 Quoting: Sunyata




The self of which you speak is where God sits, that is inside you, but He exists outside you as well.

If reality was all me, I wouldn't even be able to be conscious I'm here.
 Quoting: K.Kool


Exactly why you are here and now, and there is in and out, back and front, black and white, life and death. But in between all those, there is a infinite spectrum of possibilities. In and out, is not separate. Back and front is still one. There is a pulse everywhere, you see it as vibration. Everything is vibration. This way you can be aware of being you. As you said, how else would I know that I know that I know.
