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.
