I wonder how many people realize the similarity between the 'computer' and the Universal Mind. Who ever has a computer, and is connected to the Internet... is connected to everything that 'humanity' knows! And should we wish to know more about what we might believe, we have but to go to a 'search engine'; type in our question, and there will be web sites from anywhere on the Planet of other peoples opinions pertaining to our question.
Similarly, 'we' are ALL connected to the Source. Call it the Source, call it Life, call it God, call it the Universal Mind, the Divine Mind, or whatever else you wish to call It. And every 'thing' that has ever been known or will ever be known exists in this 'Universal' Mind. And we are ALL connected to It! In fact, 'we' are not connected to 'It', It .IS US! It did not give 'being' to 'us', It gave 'being to Itself AS US! It is Life, and 'Its' Life, is 'our' Life; Its consciousness, is 'our' consciousness. There is not It AND 'us', there is ONLY It! It, is what we are, and It is who we are! And apart from It, 'we' have No 'being'. There is ONLY It! We are to It... what waves are to the Ocean. 'It'... was who and what Mary gave birth to! It... was whom Mary named 'Jesus'! It was whom my Mother named Robert. IT was whom your Mother named, when she named 'you'! 'I' see It as being the 'Spirit of God' (the Father!), the 'reality' of each of us, and Its name is "I"! It is every 'One', and It is every 'thing'. It gave 'being' to us, by 'becoming us', by 'being' us! (As a Vine gives being to 'branches'!) And if we should want to know something, we have but to ASK this 'Universal' mind; but ask 'believing' we shall receive an answer! "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him, but let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any 'thing' of the Lord"! (James 1: 6 & 7)
After I realized that God was the "I" within me, there were many things I could not grasp. One thing I found very puzzling was 'What did it mean to walk 'with' God'? After several days of pondering, I rather angrily asked God 'what does this mean'? In just a few minutes I had the answer! Enoch waked 'with' God, and He transcended, Noah walked 'with' God and God 'spared him and His family, and Jesus walked 'with' God as well! But not only did He walk 'with' God, HE WALKED AS GOD! To me it was clear as a bell! To walk 'with' God, is to walk AS God! And 'how could we walk As God, if we were not already that which God is'? Then it was obvious to me what I wanted to do. That was when I chose to walk As Him (as best I knew how)! And what I have written since then, is the result of that realization! And yet I say, question what I have written. If it feels wrong to you, set it aside, for the last thing I would want to do is lead someone astray! I 'see' my relationship to God and to my fellow man, as I have explained in the previous paragraph. In that consciousness, I have written all that is on my site! One thought leading to another As I mentioned in a previous post, it would have been quite appropriate had I entitled my book 'An Evolution of Consciousness. 'The Christ Mind'! And one thing I am sure of, such will be the case forever. One thought leading to another. As it was in the 'beginning', so shall it be forever. It is God's nature, so it must be 'our' nature as well.
