Not sure if i should respond to answers, but i may be considered rude if i dont, so briefly:
So calling oneself 'god' doesn't necessarily mean something positive, as we humans might define it.
Yes, god is everything IMO therefore god is positive, negative (just like a magnet is both), neutral , stupidity, intelligence, basically anything u can think of (good, evil,....).
Well said. Also, calling oneself god, or 'a part of god' makes a nice theory, but doesn't produce in us anything useful at all. Only wishful thinking and buffers against the fact that we are not even our own god, god over ourselves. Or so I think.
hmm, it does produce something in me, since i do believe i am just an illusion, or if physical then at a base level no better than any other human, animal, plant, micro-organism, dirt, etc, because we r all part of the whole, ie god expressed
. One piece of water is no better or worse than another piece of water at a conceptual level.
Basically i no longer believe i am an individual, I am merely atoms/energy formed into a being. Besides, energy streams into & out of us, so where EXACTLY is our human body's boundary? There doesn't seem to be any.
Therefore all people, animals, etc r an part of me, just energy coalesced into forms, therefore if i hurt them i hurt myself. Sort of like Karma. I therefore care for & respect (as best i can) the entire universe as well as the non-physical (ideas, math, etc).
Again, its not for ego boosting i believe we r god, its just a logical conclusion if my definition is correct.... If everyone believed this, then there would be no war....
Thanks for being patient with me.. & your thoughtful answers & guidance..
if i manage to read the works in their entirety i'll be back... though it may be for a long time...
all the best..
