In our search for God, we have failed to realize that the God we are searching for is the "I" within us, our real self! Nor have we discovered that the 'person' we believe ourselves to be... is the "Satan" we have been warned to avoid.
In the realization that the "I" within us is the Father, lies the Salvation of Humanity! When we realize that the "I" within us is the Father, we take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father. That likeness, is the Christ, the Father personified.
