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.
