When you ask yourself the question, WHO AM I?
When you ask yourself the question, WHO AM I? Do you identify yourself with the Body, your Job, your Race, or your Religion? If you do, you support divisiveness. If you see differences, then you create divisions, which are the harbingers of war. Most people would find the answer, “YOU ARE GOD” very difficult. Most people whether they are Christians, Muslims, or Jews, all over the world would find this concept difficult to accept and they would even consider it blasphemous. Even though Jesus announced that he was “one with the Father” from his own experience. It did not seem to apparent to most Christians, that if it was true for him, it is also true for them. Perhaps, it did occur to them, but no one dared to claim that they are God. History has shown that the so-called leaders want to keep their power and authority. They get very cross with those who defy them, as Jesus can prove when he was put on the cross, literally. You can only know this Truth from your own experience. The Truth is, you are God, as Jesus attested. This is also known as Self-Realisation. So, when people say that they are Self-Realised, do they understand that they are saying that they are GOD?
Unity and Peace
Even in these more enlightened days, if you defy those in authority, you can still be crucified financially and socially, and suffer. Whether it is religion, or science, you will be going against their belief systems, or should I say, rattling their cages. Their belief systems are the cages they built. They have invested a lot of energy keeping their belief systems intact. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all recognise Abraham as their first prophet. All of these religions come from the same source. They all agree that God is nameless and formless and give it different names Yahweh, Allah and Almighty God. Even then, they quarrel amongst themselves, stating that theirs is the True God. How can this be, if it is the same Source? It is the leaders who interpret it differently and foist it onto their followers, which creates differences. There is a growing trend for fundamentalism, creating dissensions and divisions within their own religion. The problem is, so long as we see differences among us, there cannot be peace. We have to look for similarities and create unity, for peace to reign in the world.
