Ye are gods! What does that mean to you?

The meaning is known only by the actual becoming
during the engagement wherein in stillness meditating
However attention oscillation between separateness & oneness
makes intermittent the continuum of our pristine awareness

It is not always obvious which is the right path. One can do harm without wishing it. God has to learn to live with His own actions. Learn to live with His responsibility.

God is not a person in my opinion. God cannot make mistakes because God is the realization of every possibility good and evil. God is neither good nor evil. God is absolute perfection and unity. Human beings were created by God as being imperfect. Nature was created imperfect by being so chaotic and unpredictable. Imperfections in human character and the way nature is chaotic is the source of all that is evil in the world.

Obviously, based on human experiments, there is no amount of evil God will not tolerate in order to preserve our free-will. If God were a person, which I do not think so because person-hood would imply God had some limitations, then God is completely indifferent when it comes to how we treat each other.

If we **** in our own beds it is up to us to clean it up. I would go even further and say God is indifferent to our sins. The only way to salvation and absolution is by getting forgiveness from the people we have sinned against. We have to clean up our own messes. Saying magic words or performing rituals doesn't cut it my opinion. Only the people you have sinned against can save you.

Having faith in an omnipotent being is easy how can you lose. Having faith in your fellow man, now that takes some serious faith!!!!

Ye are gods....seems like we have tons of power to create? Yeah?
Or to see things ...future, past...remote viewing...

my mind to some possibilities I had not thought of...I don't really know all that that means, yet!

I really know nothing.
The possibilities are unknown to my rational mind.
Yet I understand from a higher mind that the more we merge with the Divine Love source and his creation all things are possible through this Divine Love power.
I am just along for the ride.
And I have been blown away so far.
And as always more will be revealed or unveiled.

I could have written most of this...Funny huh? Being revealed the same things!

What do I think? I'm so sorry I have a history with Rajneesh before he was deported
and changed his name.
I can't click onto a link in case I have to see his face or hear him speak.
Of course, he has a few things to say that can pass as very spiritual.
I know too much.
May he rest in peace.
