Existence of God: Is He within us or is He us?

We can’t say for sure how we came to think there must be a superior being than us. Maybe the idea sprouted within us as we became enlightened enough to perceive a superior being, or maybe it’s because we always had some human dominate us that made us think there must be some being superior than us who was kind. Personally, I think the dominance we endured made us come up with the concept of God. If you see, all the Gods have the physical form of a human being. Then, maybe there actually is a superior being but we don’t understand its form because of our limited understanding. Whatever it is, my argument is how to deal with this idea of God.

People describe God as a being that has all the qualities that we have and also the qualities that we lack. We describe God as a being that can create, is kind, omnipresent, and takes care of us and all the other beings that exist in this world. But if you think about it, we can learn new qualities if we try to, we can create we know, we can be kind too, maybe not omnipresent, but we all share a connection as human beings, and as the most intellectual being in this world, we do and are supposed to take care of all the other beings and our world, so is there a possibility that we, ourselves, are the God we seek?

I can accept this idea very fine. I believe I’m a God, you are a God, we all are Gods. It might be hard to believe at once because we don’t want to recognize ourselves as Gods—it’s too overwhelming after all. It might be because we feel inferior all the time, we can’t even accept that there is no one above us. We are just too scared to take responsibility, to take charge of our lives, to be what we describe God to be. It is our lack of courage that we feel the need of a superior being to feel safe. We can stop expecting a superior being to be looking after us by taking care of each other ourselves, but we don’t do that. Instead, we fight over religion. How the world was created is still a mystery, so why fight over who created it? Religion don’t make sense.

Our ignorance and insecurity must have begat religion and made us lose our identity as God. The more we look down upon ourselves, the more we forget our true selves. I think, if we really feel the need to worship, we should worship us instead. We have come so far without any proper knowledge of a superior being, we sure can go way further than this by not worshipping anyone else but ourselves.

Think about it, maybe we are a single consciousness that got scattered somehow and every fragment of that single consciousness is now living its own life. We were one, we are one, we just need to get back to how the things were for us before we split into parts and created ourselves this world of diversity. Every part of us is operating differently that’s why we are unable to merge as one. Maybe we all need to have same thoughts, same vibrations, to become the true God we are.

I think instead of accepting the idea of a superior being, we should accept ourselves as the ultimate. We should worship ourselves for making this world a better place, we should worship our forefathers for leaving a better world for us, we should teach our young about the path we paved, about the path our forefathers paved and teach them to make the world a better place instead of teaching them to pray to some mysterious being to look after us. We are all there is, as we can say for sure, so we should just be with what we know and see if we can actually find this superior being on our way, but until then, we should be the God we worship. We can solve all the problems if we wish to, if we gave up the hatred toward each other and the fight over religion and began functioning as a single consciousness.

  1. Nice one. It is somewhat similar… When we pray to God, do we actually pray to God or to ourselves? I suppose all the answers are within, and for sure God is neither in need of our prayers nor our protection.

  2. ❤ Muy interesante, de verdad. La idea de la omnipresencia surgió de la Índia, porque allí los seres humanos cada vez son más omnipresentes.., los hay por doquier; también de allí, el lugar donde hay la adoración a 300.000 deidades, puede estar conectada con la idea de que todos seamos Dios; y muy interesante también la idea de ser una sola conciencia atomizada, que aún no se puede unir debido a que no se lo cree, porque en la Índia también hay la corriente de pensamiento que asegura que todos somos una partícula de Dios. Pues.., vamos a ver si, a partir de ahora, todos hacemos un esfuerzo, nos creemos responsables de nuestra propia degradación y nos volvemos adultos de una vez por todas y dejamos de culpar a Dios por todas nuestras desgracias. Ah!, si existe o no existe ese Ser Superior.., es mejor dejarlo a la propia experiencia de cada uno, ya que nadie puede saber lo que alguien ha experimentado internamente; cuando hay experiencia.., ya no existe fe ciega. No recuerdo quien dijo: "No creo en Dios.., porque Le conozco", pero también me la hago mia esa frase, puesto que no creo en la fe ciega que tantas religiones predican. Estudiando Raja Yoga se descubren tantas cosas.., que ni os las podríais imaginar. Si encontráis algún centro de Brahma Kumaris, os recomiendo hacer el -curso Experiencial de Pensamiento Positivo y Raja Yoga- A mi me ha cambiado la vida, ¡de verdad!

    ❤ Very interesting, really. The idea of ​​omnipresence arose from India, because there human beings are increasingly omnipresent … there are everywhere; also from there, the place where there is the worship of 300,000 deities, may be connected with the idea that we are all God; and also very interesting is the idea of ​​being a single atomized consciousness, which cannot yet be united because it is not believed it, because in India there is also the current of thought that ensures that we are all a particle of God. Well, let's see if, from now on, we all make an effort, we believe we are responsible for our own degradation and we become adults once and for all and stop blaming God for all our misfortunes. Ah!, if there is or does not exist that Higher Being …, it is better to leave it to the experience of each one, since no one can know what someone has experienced internally; when there is experience, there is no blind faith. I don't remember who said: "I don't believe in God … because I know Him", but I also make that phrase mine, since I don't believe in the blind faith that so many religions preach. Studying Raja Yoga you discover so many things .., that you could not even imagine. If you find a center of Brahma Kumaris, I recommend you to do the Experiential course of Positive Thinking and Raja Yoga. It has changed my life, really!

    1. Thank you very much for your comment. God must be a force that has no physical form. We can’t say it’s a he or she. People use the male pronoun because the idea of God originated in the male dominated eras. I hope people find it acceptable to refer to God as both He and She.

  4. An interesting take on “God”, however, as a christian, I respectfully disagree with you. First of all, do we REALLY need more self- worshipping? Are all the twitter and facebook feeds not enough? And if we are ourselves God, whose “God” is correct? To use a rather extreme example, if we are all God, that means that Hitler was also God. It means that Ghengis Kahn was God and if everyone is God, whose God should we listen to? By making everyone God, you are making no-one God and “reduce” us all back to humans again. Further, on a more practical sense, if God is in us all, what do you do with all the historical facts about Jesus? Was He just a mad man who fooled everybody? I think history is a great example of how people started worshipping themselves and by doing so started wars and genocides and what not. (Stalin Hitler and Mao comes to mind) In fact, I would argue the opposite of what you argued, that we should in fact stop worshipping ourselves. I also think that history proves that it is impossible for us to all to be “one”. We can say that it should be like that, we can wish it should be like that, but we are all innate selfish and seek our own self interest. What you describe is the feeling/hope that ‘everyone should just see the world the way “you” see it.’ (“you” as in a generic “you”) Also, I to me, christianity is not a religion. It is a relationship. A relationship that in my life was the only thing that could fill the “divinity hole” in my soul.

    1. Thank you very much for your comment. You got my article wrong. I don’t mean you should think highly of yourself when you accept yourself as a God. You are a Christian, so you must know how loving and caring God is. That is how we should be not like Hitler or Genghis Khan. Swami Vivekananda said this wonderful thing, he said we should treat others like they are us. Imagine a world where everyone is loving and caring like the God you worship.

  5. I agree with much of what you say, but humankind is far from being the ultimate. We are a work in progress, so to speak.
    The actual historicity of Jesus and much of the contents of the Holy Books is very much open to debate.
