You are creating God and that’s what you need to understand is going on within you. You are creating God and God created you. Now look at that mirror image. That Imago Dei or image of God within. You are creating God and God created you, and I am that I am which includes absolutely everything, including you and me. So, you are creating God every time you move towards finding your authentic, your sacred and your higher self. You are moving from the structure, the container of your animal side or animal nature and you are moving from Edward Hyde to Henry Jekyll, from impulse and instinct to loving and fearless. You are shifting and becoming more and more conscious each and every day! Are you not? Is it not happening for you? Yes, it is happening to all of us whether we are aware or unaware.
Is it so difficult to see what life is about? You are becoming less and less like you and more and more like God. All the world does is pour out love and life everyday. When we start doing the same thing we are no longer ourselves, we are like God who created us to be God-like rather than animal like. Unfinished we are on a very important quest to return to love. To become Love. We were created to become love eventually. Through trial and tribulation we conquer the beast within. Slowly but surely a part of you is dying off and another part of you is emerging. Just look in the mirror every 10 years and you will see it is so. The emptiness inside of us all is our compass and through yearning for more we let go of what is dying and cling to the eternal. Love is indeed eternal and never dies but is only ever born.
I see many, many people who are selfish, garrulous, bellicose, demanding and cruel come to treat their depression, bitterness and pain. When they do the work on themselves something wonderful happens. They finally let go of their ego-centric personas and flower into their Sacred Selves….just as an acorn contains a mighty oak tree so they contain the Imago Dei
– Mark L Lockwood BA(hons)(psy).
You are becoming more and more conscious of who you really are. Who you really are is divine! So what we are doing to be absolutely crystal clear about life is that we are becoming like God. Isn’t it wonderful? God has decided to give us the gift of life which is about love and pleasure and experience and bliss. Yet we are unable to contain all of what life holds because we have not developed everything we need to contain it, nor the capacity for everything that encompasses life. Thus you need to see it, because it is plain as daylight to the contemplative mind. We start as an animal and we move towards being divine. We move from being selfish to selfless. We move from being egotistical to loving, caring and giving. We move from selfishness to empathy. We move from a small self-centered universe to an all inclusive universe. Every piece of work you do with opening up your mind, and then your heart, moves you from one kind of being to another, greater and more capable kind, that has the capacity to truly live with purpose and meaning. You move beyond your mind and lean into your emotions, even the difficult ones. The ones that are hard to bear. When you can lean into the discomfort of your emotions then you can open up more and more to reality without the illusions.
You are a child of God. You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure about you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.Marianne Williamson
God is spirit and so are you. The mirror image of the Creator is dissolving into the created as your anima image slowly returns back to dust whilst you are turning into spirit at the same time. Now remember God is spirit. Become aware that you are becoming your spiritual self every single day. Make sure that you do not waste this metaphysical growth opportunity. Stop and listen. How do we become God? How do we create God? We stop. We listen. We notice everything! God is omnipresent and so are you. All you have is the present moment even though your mind incessantly tells you otherwise. If you get depressed you’re stuck in the past and if you get repeated anxiety and feelings of fear, you’re stuck in the future. Yet, it’s a mind-trap. A white lie your mind has taught you to believe beyond the mind’s natural capabilities. There is no past or present in reality. Your mind knows ideas of past and future, but you are only present. Just like God is present. You are going nowhere through space and time. It’s marvellous and wondrous when we come to know that God is omnipotent and you must develop into the same such being. We need to wake up to the size and complex nature of reality, much like Neo in the Matrix or Alice in Wonderland, and even Christ Himself as he was resurrected, like we need to be.
You are more than your brain can imagine and you are need to know for starters that you are not your brain. You are not limited like your brain and you can access your higher self, your higher meta-thinking capabilities, through meditation, contemplation, yoga, centring prayer and mindfulness. That’s how you create God. A little more each and every day. We become God by seeing the universe in a grain of sand and by seeing everything that is in him or her, in every other him or her, or single person, or place, and soon you can even see this likeness and sameness it in the night sky. Even in a grain of sand!
All that is real in me is God; all that is real in God is I. The gulf between God and me is thus bridged. Thus by knowing God, we find that the kingdom of heaven is within us.
You are a mirror of the Almighty…this is the reason you were created…your purpose.
You can create God by being love. Love yourself, regardless of your actions of the past and the shortcomings of the natural mind. Love yourself because if you love yourself you will be able to love others. Through creating that love for yourself you will naturally have created love for others as one plus one equals two. You’ve created love. Love is patient. Love is kind and we create these things patience and kindness and the like. So do not waste your time. Do not waste your time and your thinking and your thoughts and your emotions. They are not you. They are guides and tides pointers for you, but they are not you. So lean into the discomfort of life and realise how important your journey is. God did not create you because he or she was bored or lonely or because she needed something to do. God created you because She or He wanted to share this marvellous and wondrous thing called life, the wonder of it all, with you, an incarnation of God that can share all that is heaven and earth. No other reason, other than to simply share it. Think about that kind of giving for a minute.
It is in giving that we receive. It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life. It is in creating God that we become fully ourselves. What an incredible gift it is we we just stop to think about it. So be grateful for it today. Gratitude is God, like judgment is not God. Create God a little more everyday. Master you universe. God is making you like God’s self which is love, giving, kindness, patience, beauty, majesty and bliss. It’s not blasphemy it is relationship! That’s what religion means. It is the binding together of things. God is relationship itself. It is a universe, a uni-verse or one-song. One, and we are all moving back to one from millions and trillions of fragments. We are becoming what God intended us to. Divine beings like Himself.
