All “God” really is…

Societies have distorted reality and truth of what is, of that cosmic force which gives birth to all life, to all experience; for humanity has given names, thoughts and feelings, expectations and qualities to divinity.  All that humanity knows and understands–the ego-mind, the compulsive feelings and ways to hate and love, the rational and irrational behaviors, etc–has been projected onto something which in reality is pure silence and energy; and as a result of this abomination we have God in many religions, each one of them with their own qualities and different ways of existence.

This gods expect things from you like to follow beliefs and dogmas, need things from you like worship and obedience, and threaten you with hell and various creative forms of torture.  Divine bullying anyone…??

But what if God is just “godliness”, divinity, harmony, morals and ethics in the human creature which exist deep in all of us…??  What if this divinity does not require you to fill your mind with beliefs, rules from religions, rituals of specific worship, and prayers directed to saints created by man…??After all, all love and happiness resides within you, deep inside, which you can access without help from any outside form.

Because divinity is just that, just the development of great MORALS AND ETHICS; for morals and ethics when applied to your life give you wisdom to create your individual path in life, intelligence to make better choices, mental health and harmony to understand yourself and others, and the love to accept the world with its flaws and ignorance without you being absorbed by it.

 

All God, or divinity, really is then, is a set of virtues that you must develop from within you every day; and so, the word “develop” here means “APPLY,” for without applying this, God, or divinity, does not exist and you are lost as a human being.

The Sprouting Seed.

Some of us experience, at some point in our lives, a strong “calling or deep desire” to fulfill ourselves beyond the mere urges or wants of the physical kind; and in a way we may wonder at our own feelings trapped behind nagging spiritual or divine questions and dilemmas, or perhaps we become just tired in our own lives’ monotony.  A spiritual inquietude, or spiritual restlessness, is an “itch” or a longing, a stimulus within our pure consciousness, something that is deep within our psyche that longs “to know” (gnosis).

This longing to discover and KNOW, if it is indeed a true desire or longing, is driven by a spiritual force in us which seeks freedom; that is, it seeks a freedom that your terrestrial life or lifestyle cannot give it.  Ever felt this…??   Are you going through this right now…??

Our soul is a seed merely, and throughout our lives our soul tries to get out from the oppression of our immorality or morality lack–which is the selfishness of our choices and passions.  All of us feel this urge to express, to emerge, to become; and this urgency is particularly strong when we are in our adolescence and even earlier youth, which is why young people tend to make so many basic mistakes.

This is the urge of the soul-seed wanting to experience freedom, liberation and expansion through higher moral ways via our human structure; but, sadly, most people, specially most young people, ignore the calling by following mere desires of the ego in search for a fulfillment which never comes–they always want more and more because they deviate from the true path of divine fulfillment.  But this happens at all ages; so be aware of it.

This situation is analogous to what we observe in the life of any plant or tree, which in the course of its existence will release or liberate from itself millions of seeds.  Those seeds will be scattered in its environment in order to propagate the species.  But the vast majority of those seeds, all of which feel that longing to become a great tree, will be lost.

Each of us is a seed:

1) Some fall into barren soil to never grow–i.e., lost by their own desires which never fulfill them they remain always dry and empty souls.

2) Some fall into a soil too moist and muddy–i.e., lost in their millions of opinions, set of rigid beliefs, philosophies of life, and fantastical imaginations; so, they remain always in their own little worlds, with a strong desire and faith but no truth in them.

3) But then there is the sprouting seed that is active and expands itself (divine desire for freedom), it opens and blossoms beautifully because the soil for it (the environment and knowledge sought) is perfect, destined to be–and this soul just grows and grows without end.

What is driving you…??

There has to be an engine which drives you in life, in order for you to accept challenges and create great beauty in your path or in order to fail and self-pity your attempts over and over again; furthermore, this inner strength or drive must be based on something real, something everlasting and strong, something which is not made from a thought or concept.  Reality.  Namely love, not fear.
Character is the moral and ethical values which drive your life, what certainly creates you from within; and without this higher character you cannot build a successful and truly happy life.  Happiness is not an outcome of any exterior success or achievement, as most people believe in ignorance, but it is the ever flowing substance that you are and which can only be embraced and experienced if you carry your mental and physical body with high morals/with excellent character.

Character offers you mental freedom and peace to be yourself and fill this same mind with truth and love/a higher understanding.

On the other hand, reputation is what the ego pushes on you–i.e., a better pay, a better person compared to others, a more successful career, a man or woman of nicer words, etc. etc.  Reputation is beliefs and opinions others have about you, and this cannot bring you true happiness because this reputation does not allow you to be unique, independent, free of the demands and opinions of others. 

Reputation, even though society sees it differently, is based on fear, it is attachment to others fearing that they do not approve of you.  When you pursue reputation, your mind is not at peace but it is agitated and struggling to make others like you.



But to be yourself and base your life and your actions on love and truth is to express your heart, it is to learn to free yourself from the expectation of others so you can be mentally free and able to see your own path clearly.  So, ponder this:  What is it that is driving you really in your life today…??  Is it what others might think of you…??  Or is it your unique character to express yourself freely…??  (Be honest with yourself.)

“Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.  The shadow is what we and others merely think of it; but the tree is the real thing.”  ~ Abraham Lincoln; American statesman, lawyer, and 16th President of the United States.
