"UNLESS YOU MAKE YOURSELF EQUAL TO GOD, YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND GOD; LIKE IS UNDERSTOOD BY LIKE. MAKE YOURSELF GROW TO IMMEASURABLE IMMENSITY, OUT LEAP ALL BODY, OUTSTRIP ALL TIME, BECOME ETERNITY AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND GOD. HAVING CONCEIVED THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU, CONSIDER YOURSELF IMMORTAL AND ABLE TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING, ALL ART, ALL LEARNING, THE TEMPER OF EVERY LIVING THING. GO HIGHER THAN EVERY HEIGHT AND LOWER THAN EVERY DEPTH. COLLECT IN YOURSELF ALL THE SENSATIONS OF WHAT HAS BEEN MADE, OF FIRE AND WATER, DRY AND WET; BE EVERYWHERE AT ONCE, IN LAND, IN THE SEA, IN HEAVEN; BE NOT YET BORN, BE IN THE WOMB, BE YOUNG, OLD, DEAD, BEYOND DEATH. AND WHEN YOU HAVE UNDERSTOOD ALL THESE AT ONCE – TIMES, PLACES, THINGS, QUALITIES, QUANTITIES – THEN YOU CAN UNDERSTAND GOD."

""UNLESS YOU MAKE YOURSELF EQUAL TO GOD, YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND GOD""

So, where are the instructions on how to do this?
Can the lesser understand the greater?

If you could do as suggested you would already be there.

Where are the instructions?

June 14 2011, 1:41 PM 

A teensy million dollar question and I can honestly say I am not sure.

ALL must be Within.

So what do we do?

I have meditated. I get Something but no instructions.

I have surrounded myself with nature, yet despite the most wonderful sensation of being at One, still What Am I?

I know I HAVE to be God / The Source, I can see no other way with the ALL I am able to see as Jackie (no doubt there is much MORE....happy.gif)

But how does the 'lesser' understand the 'greater'?

The only thing I personally feel able to do is just try and be the best I can be.

I can read books, but which books?

I can listen to others, but what others?

It is a hard enough concept to believe yet make sense of that even the dispacable dark heart that causes innocents cruelty beyond belief if God as well.

But I see no other Way.

We are 'already there'...

This is, in a nutshell and oof the cuff (wink.gif) how I see God and maybe make a sense of Knowing God, Seoc.

The Source realised It Existed. Then It wanted to realise all it was able to do and IT desires to evolve and to grow and to experience. Along Its way It may have had /have Its own crises points and Moments, how to overcome them, incorporate the experiences and transform the Energies, yet always to evolve!

I am pretty similar! I want to know It all! See all the possibilities. Yet I am pretty sure 'I' am but a shattering at this time with my remembered and realized knowledge and experiences.

Most seem to be asleep, therefore so is The Source Within them. I feel AWAKE and sort of coming back to life, as if in former lives I was still trying to fathom out any realization.

It's a personal journey, isn' it?

I feel a perfectly vivacious Yang, acknowledging my totally symetrical Yin! Pretty much The Source in action. happy.gif

Does that count?

"Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever."

Instructions???

June 14 2011, 7:32 PM 

The Tao teaches trying to understand prevents from knowing.

It is not necessary to "be" we already are. Is that of itself not enough?

To be a God seems to be seeking something that is missing. So what is missing? Is it a desire to make or have something that is not? That is not nature. The desire is not wisdom.

Jackie: If you could wish your children different would you love them more? They are already perfect.

God is only a concept of some perfection. The truth is the real perfection is not a concept and actually exist.

We are part of it.

The instructions don't exist. Follow that inner voice. Live your life. Life doesn't need instructions, it defeats the purpose in fact.

Although it took me decades to learn this.

I remember as a teen, and beyond, thinking that others had it together. So self assured, so certain about goals, and what life was about. It took me another decade to realize we're all the same. We all have the same knowledge of what comes next (none).

Great post Ice. Sorry if I digress a bit. happy.gif

Jesus spoke too, of the Way:

Luke 17 (KJV)
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Haha...

To BE a God. To be Me - no difference!

The ALL is Just One anyhow.

Of course, 'God' is a concept! Nothing wrong with concepts as long as we realization ther limitations.

Play with everything!

What is missing, imo, is that we think have forgotten how powerful we are!

Mind you, many are Remembering...

Hurray!

Smile...
