Heresy

My heresy is the statement: ‘You are greater than God’. This is because you are that which makes God possible. It is only because you are that God may be.
Those who declare: ‘Consciousness is all there is’ have yet to confront that which is antecedent to Consciousness.
This source of consciousness is prior to time and space.
Real existence is without, prior to, time-bound being. Time-bound being is only seeming existence.

Whatever You Like

No outside, physical agency can help you. Nor can you help yourself.
That which was already present before your daily practice began and that which will continue to be present after your daily practice has concluded need not be attained or gained.
It is always already the case and has been merely overlooked.
Give up your body identity and then meditate fifteen hours a day if you like.

Real God

Are you an atheist?
No, it is clear to me that there is a God. However, it is not the God that is naively believed in.
It is neither a paternal God nor a maternal God. A God with gender? How ridiculous!
The real God isn’t ‘on our side’. This God has no preferences, hasn’t ‘chosen’ one group of believers over other groups.
Having no preferences, this God doesn’t exercise Will. The existence of what could be called evil affirms the real God’s equanimity.
The real God doesn’t need your worship.
The real God doesn’t reside in a conceived heaven, meting out punishments, sending you to a conceived hell.
The real God is not a want-fulfilling machine.
The real God is this Conscious Life Energy and when you fix your attention on It, your mind-made problems come to an end.

Whose Is It?

Life is the functioning of consciousness through physical forms. There is no ‘my life’ as an individual life. This is merely the brain’s narrative. Entity status is only a convention that one human bestows on another.
Each and every phenomenon that the senses perceive and the brain interprets is an appearance in Consciousness, limited to the spatiotemporal dimension. In this sense, each of us are each other’s phenomena.
The body is not different from the objects around it insofar as it too is a set of sensations.
The one who asserts ownership of the body is quite different from the body that he calls his own. To whom does the body belong?
What does the body want? It doesn’t want anything. It needs to function in its natural manner. But if the body doesn’t want anything, what wants?
Likewise, because of the transient nature of things, the fear of dissolution is inevitable. It invites the inquiry ‘Whose fear is this?’ When this is resolved, there is no further need for God.
