Before the beginning of time, there was this Being. This Being was all alone and was completely satisfied with Being alone. It needed nothing outside of Itself probably because It knew nothing outside of Itself. Anytime it tried to look for something outside itself, it always ended up seeing itself. It needed nothing or so it thought. In reality it needed to experience itself to know itself as itself. Before this need, it was living in perfect duality: It knows itself by not knowing itself. You’ll understand this by knowing that if there is a Being that knows everything, then that Being knows nothing … since there is nothing to know. Now, it wants to know itself by experiencing itself.
If you know everything there is to know, then there is nothing to know.Emi’el
Hence, this Being started to think. First thought, second thought, third thought, fourth, fifth, sixth … one million thoughts … twenty trillion thoughts …
As this Being was thinking, it slowly, very slowly but surely got lost in its thoughts without it knowing or having the slightest clue. If one would tell it what the situation at hand is, it would hotly disagree. It is completely unimaginable to this Being because it knows what it is experiencing. It would take something quite drastic to change this Being’s mind.
Lost in its thoughts, this Being created ALL MANNER OF THINGS. Everything it created where illusions within illusions. These illusions are called illusions because the only true reality is the existence of this Being. It went on and on and on and on, creating things with its thought forevermore.
Tell me, who is this Being?
Say God one more time.
Really? Did you just say God? Does your concept of God comes from your thoughts? If it did, are you not lost in your thought, thinking there is a God up there … somewhere? The point I’m making is this: You had to think, to create a God. If at this point you lost all your memories, you would not know any God anymore.
If I lost all my memories and don’t know there is a God, that doesn’t mean there isn’t one.
YOU ARE STILL THINKING! Can you see that? You can counter with this argument because you still have an idea of God at this point. If you truly lost your memories, you’ll have nothing to think about. Eventually, you will start to think and you would probably make the mistakes our ancestors made. What mistake?
The mistake of thinking that they exist because they think. This is the origin of everything known … including religion and athiesm. The one who has this thought: if I exist and all this things exist and nothing can create itself out of thin air, then there must be a Creator, is religious. The other thought goes like: everything is obviously physical as there is no reality outside of the ones we can see with our physical senses hence, there is no spiritual “God” … and they spend the rest of their lives trying to prove that we don’t need a creator to explain creation.
You would assume it would be more difficult to reason with an athiest. On the contrary, a religion person is completely block-headed. Anyway …
What do I think? I don’t need to think. In some cases, I dont even need to know that YOU ARE. My knowing or my thoughts is completely irrelevant to your Being-ness … so is yours. We can argue over any other thing in this world but IT WOULD NOT CROSS ANYONE’S IMAGINATION to argue about your existence.
Well, let’s see.
There was a time you didn’t exist the way you do now.
You were all alone before time. But how would you know that? You know everything and hence there was nothing to know.
You started thinking and your thoughts created you the way you know your yourself to be today. Does this make sense? Well, think of it this way. There were once two young lovely couple who loved themselves so dearly ( … at that time. Only Jesus Christ knows what’s happening now). This two lovely couple got married … or not. There was so much chemistry. This chemistry, which are thought patterns/processes mixed with emotions, led them to a certain direction and then BOOM! You were born.
You could argue with, ‘those were not my thoughts. Those were my parents thought’. Well, I have answered that question in my book, The Place. However, if you are willing, you can think deeply and get answers. Moving on …
You existed and then you started thinking. Eat. Sleep. Poop. Eat. Sleep. Poop. Eat. Sleep. Poop. Move. Eat. Sleep. Poop. Move. Make a sound … and so on.
I don’t know. This Being feels like me or you or any Jack.
Do you get lost in your thoughts sometimes? Yes. Do you notice the characteristics of such state, when you get lost in your thoughts? You don’t know you are lost in your thoughts … until you do. Well, you are first lost in the thought that you think, when you think that the person that you think you are is who you are. You think you have a brother and sister and father and mother. You think you have to get to the office. You have to eat. You think you need to get married, I mean, everyone else is doing it. While completely lost in these thoughts, you still get even more lost in thoughts. So when I come to you and say YOU ARE THAT GOD that you think exist, you reject it hotly. It’ll never come across your imagination since you are lost in your thoughts and you don’t even know it.
You are always blessed.
