One cannot paint a rainbow with just one color. So if the world is diverse then so becomes the individual painting (more or less). And if they are all god so will the image of god also be diverse. I think we should focus on embracing infinity instead of one.

If we all realized that we are God, there would be no need for religion, the thing is there is only One God, so by saying "we", is actually not true, there is only One, no we.

IF

The goal is to get over yourself.

And if we were God, and this were the real world, there would be no departure from it.
Religion involves all of the above.

I think its not just getting over yourself, but just simply being your SELF.

It will never happen--well maybe in a million years...Wars over religion have been fought since time immemorial.......and don't most religions believe in one God NOW......?

The pantheistic perspective really does not motivate me to live with love, joy, or peace - in the same way that proclaiming everything is energy also fails to inspire me.

I don't think we are all God. For me God is so Perfect, that it is impossible for Him to take on form like us and make the kinds of mistakes that we make. I feel that we are all part of God's Creation. Creation radiates from God as a natural thing. Creation is the radiation of God. Within this radiation, certain elements crystalize and form spirit-seeds. We evolve from out of these spirit-seeds. The seeds have the potential to become perfect, but do not necessarily become perfect. In their perfection though, they will still stay within the radiation of God, which is Creation, but they cannot enter into God directly, since they bear nothing of God's Essence. This is not the same as saying we are all God, because I don't feel we are. It's like saying Hitler is God.

How about we say that we are all spirits that have condensed from out of the radiation of God in Creation and we have to attain to perfection together? Or just simply, we are all spirits in Creation who have to attain perfection with the help of one another?

Wishing Light and Love!

Hi Morpheus, I mean your true Inner Being, the true SELF, if we let this SELF do what it does, then we cannot go wrong.
