WE ARE ALL ONE, and that one ~ IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD ~ the reality of every 'thing'!
The Earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep ~ And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. To me, the Mind of God fills all 'space'. And through 'thought' and the action of the Creative Principle, God 'Created' (or gave being) to every 'thing' we see upon the Earth and in the Heavens. And after He had given being to the plants, He created great whales and every living creature which the waters brought forth abundantly 'after their kind' ~ and every winged fowl 'after his kind' ~ and God saw that it was good! And then He gave being to the creatures of the Earth ~ cattle and beasts ~ again making it possible for every 'creature' to bring forth 'creatures' 'after their kind'. And again He saw that everything He had made was good. Then He said ~ Let us make 'man' in our image and likeness, and let them have Dominion over the fishes of the sea and over the fowls of the air and over the cattle and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the Earth. So male and female created He them ~ in His own image created He them. And God saw everything He had made ~ and behold it was very good.
But ~ He did not say what manner of beings that 'Adam' and 'Eve' might 'bring forth'! If every other 'thing' He had made was endowed with the capacity to 'bring forth 'after its kind' ~ then why not 'man'? If God made man in His image and likeness, then so too would Adam and Eve (through procreation) bring forth children 'after their Kind'! Adam and Eve were God embodied! So what could their children be, other than children of God ~ (other than God's?) So ~ not knowing what manner of beings they were ~ they sinned and fell! So does this disqualify them from giving birth to children 'after their kind? NO! Children of 'men' shall forever give birth to children of God! There is no difference between children of men and children of God! Every 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, is God in the infant stage of development. Only humanity is not aware of this amazing Truth! (Just as Adam and Eve were ignorant of what manner of beings they were). If all of humanity spoke the English language, EVERY ONE would proclaim their relationship to God every time they introduced themselves ~ every time they made reference to themselves as they said Hello ~ I am, or I am known as! The Universal Mind ~ Universal Spirit and Universal Life are all synonymous with the word God, or the word 'Source', and 'Gods' name ~ is I AM! ("I" am the Lord ~ that is my name ~ we read in Isaiah 42-8)! God is the Universal I am, and each of us is that Universal I am individualized! AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE! Not only do 'we humans' refer to ourselves as "I", but so too would every other living thing if it could speak! For God ~ the Source, can never be separated from its manifestations. How could any 'thing ' be separated from the Source ~ when every 'thing' is the Source (God) manifesting AS that thing? God gave every 'thing' being, by 'becoming' every 'thing' ~ by 'being' every 'thing'! For the benefit of 'humans' ~ did He not say ~ I am the Vine ~ and ye are the branches?
Nothing or no One, has any being apart from or other than the Source ~ the SPIRIT OF GOD! IT gave being to every 'thing' and every One. In fact ~ in the beginning there was nothing besides the Spirit (or Life) of God. Nor is there today! We read in the Bible that no 'man' hath seen God at any time. This is because God is the Invisible reality of all there is! The Invisible World is the real World. It is in the invisible World (the Divine Mind) where all creation takes place. The Visible World is but the World of manifest forms. And in reality ~ every One and every 'thing' we see, is actually the Mind (or consciousness) of God manifesting AS THAT THING! For instance ~ neither 'Adam' nor 'Eve' ~ had any 'being'! 'Adam' was God manifesting AS 'Adam' ~ as was 'Eve'. There is no one or no 'thing' apart from God ~ or other than God ~ the Source. He made each of us in His image and likeness, but He did not create the 'person' we believe ourselves to be. Our parents did that when they named us at our birth. When we realize that the "I" within us is God ~ the Father, we can say we see nothing other than God! There is nothing besides Him or other than Him! He is the "I" within each of us ~ and so too is He the reality of every other 'thing'! Now we can see why He said ~ call no man your Father upon the Earth, for one is your Father which is in heaven.
