And God said to Moses, “I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.”
As a Christian I was told that God is the seen and the unseen alike. Which to me, brings up a natural question; if God is both the seen and the unseen alike, wouldn’t that mean, God alone exists?
I believe the following passages from the both the CHRISTIAN BIBLE and the JEHOVAH BIBLE are saying just that.
New International Version (NIV)
5 I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, thoughyou have not acknowledged me, 6 so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other. 7 I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things. 8 “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth
open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it; I, the LORD, have created it. 9 “Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those whoare nothing but potsherds (A fragment of broken pottery, especially one found in an archaeological excavation.) among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’? 10 Woe to the one who says to a father, ‘What have you begotten?’or to a mother, ‘What have you brought to birth?’11 “This is what the LORD says the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Concerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands? 12 It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.
04/1.1. All was. All is. All ever shall be. The All spoke, and Motion was, and is, and ever shall be; and, being positive, was called He and Him. The All Motion was His speech. 04/1.2. He said, I Am! And He comprehended all things, the seen and the unseen. Nor is there anything in all the universe that is not part of Him. 04/1.3. He said, I am the soul of all; and all that is seen is part of My person and My body. 04/1.4. By virtue of My presence, all things are. By virtue of My
presence, life is. By virtue of My presence, the living are brought forth into life. I am the Quickener, the Mover, the Creator, the Destroyer. I am First and Last.
For those of you who have been following my blogs, you probably recall I have said the world we live in as well as the various dimensions of time and space, are a school of sorts. Similar to the schools that humankind is familiar with, much can be learned through hearing or reading what others believe or have said. The greatest or best teacher however, has always been and will always be the lessons learned through personal experience.
As I have come to see Life, (the infinite experience comprised of varying degrees of awareness) I have no problem accepting God can be experienced as the good, the bad and the ugly. That said, I also believe, although God can be experienced as the good, the bad and the ugly, in terms of Ultimate Reality, only the Love is REAL.
When I say only the love is real, I am referring to a state of conscious awareness rather than the emotion many identify with when they hear of or think about Love. This is the point I was making in Prophet or Madman when I speak of there being only two states of consciousness we can experience. These two states are based entirely on whether you are awake (consciously cognizant of God) or asleep (unaware of God) and they are called Love or Fear.
Looking at the last passage from JEHOVAH CHAPTER 1, God is bringing forth some very powerful points. First off, he states his presence is at the core of all that is “By virtue of My presence, all things are”. Next he speaks of “the living being brought forth into life” (the sleeping man waking up).
Lastly, but perhaps the most important point God makes is, He is not only the originator for all movement and that which causes all that exists “ I am the Quickener, the Mover, the Creator, the Destroyer. I am First and Last.” but also God claims that all that exists is its body; “He said, I am the soul of all; and all that is seen is part of My person and My body.”Looking at the last quote where God declares all that is seen is a part of its body, I realize what guided me to write this blog. This week I got a phone call from someone who has been channeling spirit for a number of years. As is the case with many who begin to experience higher levels of understanding, the woman I spoke with could not believe in a God that did not hold the same values and judgments she possesses as a human.
I tried to share with her that when she or anyone channels, she was calling forth an aspect of God relative to the level she was open to. Being that everything is God, we all connect with the frequency that we open to.
Only when we get past our attachment to our judgmental mind and go beyond the dualistic view held by mankind can we ultimately reach the state known to some as perfection.
At the state of perfection there exists only Unconditional Love. This is because at the frequency of Unconditional Love, the rate of vibration is beyond the limit and outside the range of dualistic perceptions. Rather than energies operating at the frequency of opposites (Good or Bad), there is nothing but a perfected harmony and a blending of all that is.
That said, I wish to point out once again, the Unconditional Love I am now speaking of, is not something you can see or touch from the position of a human mind. Only through the eyes of spirit in the awakened state, can this treasure be yours. This is why God offered this advice to mankind; “Be still, and know that I am God”
Although it may seem natural to imagine God (The summation of that which is) as having emotions similar to man, the ultimate expression that is God, goes way beyond the vibration of emotions. Anyone who channels at the emotional level is channeling an aspect or piece of the absolute but not at the highest frequency. Only when you connect at the point of LOVE beyond dimensions of time and space, are you reaching the absolute.
When it was said, God is Love and God is that which never changes, what was being spoken was referring to the vibration that goes beyond description or limitation of any kind. This is why it was once said, “God can not be intellectualized.” While it is true God cannot be intellectualized, it is also true that you/we can awaken to be aware of God.
For those who are wondering how you experience something that appears to go beyond the emotional level or what is known, I can only offer this advice. The secret is to embrace each moment as a merger or union with the divine. At the same time you must remember to never hold a memory so tight that you do not allow for greater expressions to come your way.
When you can trust God/Spirit, more than you trust your intellect/human ego mind, you are allowing God to direct the flow. Conversely, when you stubbornly insist on being so rigid that everything must be as you would wish it to be, you erect a wall that even God can not break through.
In closing, I wish to end with this reminder. Freewill is not only the reason God must allow and never interfere in any and all matters of Creation but freewill is also, Gods eternal gift.
At some point I will speak more on freewill but for now, it would be helpful to remember this,
Freewill=Choice and Choice =Responsibility!
Regardless of your path or what religion you practice, if you wish to awaken yourself and live awakened in this world you may find yourself reinterpreting your view of reality itself!
More to come…
Love and Light,
Prophet or Madman
