The Great Paradox
One cannot be "one," with oneness while in the physical world, because to be here is to be involved in the illusion of separation.
In that respect the Christians may be correct. The only difference between them and modern New Age Philosophy is that they do not see the illusion for what it is.
Life is simply a process of the creator (God) "that which created us," experiencing itself in the physical realm. It is the creator gazing into a mirror so that it can experience itself in its wholeness. It is the sum of its parts experiencing all of its parts as whole, divided, but never separated, standing in front of the mirror, experiencing itself as "being."
During meditation or prayer, we try to bridge the gap and join with one, once more. This very act once again produces an illusion of joining with creator. We fool ourselves into this belief because it is the very first thought that separates us in the first place.
If we believe that we must meditate or prayer to join with creator then we have created the separation that we are trying to close. We are thinking or declaring that we are separated and that we have to meditate or pray to connect.
Should we know that we are separated, then we cannot join and we cannot meditate or pray to get there. What the mind conceives becomes our reality. If we think separation, we will automatically create it.
On the other hand if we are communicating with "One," then we are joined in that moment of being connected. Because we are constantly connected in communication at some level of consciousness, then we are never separated. So it is in the physical mind of mankind "ego," that we create the separation and the illusion.
The joining of all parts together with the mind of the "whole," works in harmony to create an illusion of time and space. We are "one," thinking we are separated, knowing that we are not. In truth we are God, there is no one else within the body that we call "God," or the "Creator." In Christian belief it would be blasphemy to call oneself "God," because to say the word is to give reverence to it, create separation, diminish one’s power and make one inferior. To say I am God is to say that "God," is a lesser God equal to me, when in fact it is the other way around, to say I am God is to make me equal to God and destroy the illusion of separation.
I am God, I am the sum of all my parts, and I work within the illusion of time and space which I created to know and experience myself as all that is. I am omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. I am all that is and I am nothing, I am everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I am all powerful and I am powerless and it is through the experience of the illusion of your physical life that I can imagine the experience all ofthese things.
The illusion must be kept alive in order for me to experience life, which is what I am.
As humanity we can experience being "one," by imagining it. By knowing that we are already one and that there is no place to go or to be. We are creating the illusion ourselves and living within it. We can know the whole by experiencing knowing that we already are what we wish to experience. By recognizing the duality within the whole experience we can experience both at the same time.
I am "God, "imagining "Me," experiencing "myself," through the imagined parts of the whole and the process called life. I can know myself through the physical awakening of my parts without destroying the illusion I have created.
By awakening to this truth, I destroy the fear that comes from living in the darkness which is also me. When I see it for what it is, I can only fall in love with the beauty of how it all works. I can live with the knowledge that I cannot be destroyed. I can live with the images of the world that I have created knowing that it is appropriate given the model that I have created and my relationship to it. There are no wars, unless I create them. There are no disasters unless I create them and there is no struggle unless that is what I wish to experience. I create all of these things through the cooperation of all my parts. There are no victims, because there is only me. I can only destroy the illusion by not focusing on it. And even then it will still exist in part of my memory. Each part has the same attributes and characteristics of the whole. Each part has free will to choose what it will experience and all parts are brought together in free will.
All things are happening at the same time, all experiences are probable and inevitable, and it is the experience of them that is by choice a part of the illusion.
Life is not to be feared, fear is to be experienced as is love, and neither can be experienced individually unless one focuses on one more than the other. When one part does not see the whole picture, it shuts itself off from the rest and lives in the dark and the fear. It experiences fear and separation. When one opens itself to the awareness of this eternal connection, it comes into the light and experiences the whole and moves away from fear and it is always by choice.
We are in the physical world and it is appropriate at this time, to experience the separation. But we are not of this world; we are the world, this one and the next. Life is a paradox because it was never meant to be figured out, just experienced. Expanded awareness brings opportunity to experience other probabilities, possibilities and inevitabilities.
We move within our own awareness and maturity to accept what we experience as being appropriate.
