This poem asks us all a big question. Could we ever exist if not for God?

There must be a cause for all that exists, and this cause calls itself God. Who are we to argue with God, when we know that we didn't create ourselves, or this Universe?

A lively discussion of the questions raised has been added after the poem.

God spoke to me about who I was in him

"If not for me," God said to me
"would there still be you?"
"I existed first you see," he said,
"I created all else from me to be."

We turn to God for his helpful light,
when all seems not right in our life.
If not for God, who'd carry us then?
God carries us all within his hand.

God's truth straightens crookedness.
If not for God, we could never grow.
We can know who we are as ourselves,
through growing ourselves within God.

If not for God, we remain in the dark.
God's light opens us up to new insight,
making the darkest night, still bright.
It's because of God, we know his love.

God exists. He exists for no other reason.
His energy of love brings life to all else.
His creation brings his Godliness to life.
Jesus shows you that God exists to be you.

Creation? God? You? Me? What is, is!

Is God within us, or without us?

Is God actually existing separately outside of us somewhere else? Are we really completely separated from God in any way?

The answer might be surprising to you, because it is neither.

God fundamentally if he exists is everything combined into a oneness of himself.

Nothing then can ever exist outside of this oneness, but can anything else, and that which could be called separate, really ever exist also somehow within this same oneness?

This is the real question that we need to explore further here. These extra questions might then pop up too.

Does God exist inside of me, or outside of me?

If God is inside of me, what would that leave me to be?

If God is outside of me, how could I ever then contact God at all?

Love exists in the oneness of its expression throughout all of creation.

This love remains oneness, but it can express itself individually in infinite ways.

It is the same with God. God lives in you, because you are a part of God. This means that you are not outside of God, and he is not outside of you.

Nothing is outside of you, and nothing is outside of God.

All is only ever the oneness of God being God.

"All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything."

This quote is from Swami Vivekananda (1863 to 1902), an Indian spiritual leader.

Love, oneness, and God

Love in a sense is not God, until God loves.

This means that God in the beginning was only inertly alive until he allowed each part of himself to become actively alive through conscious awareness being sparked in each part of himself from its previously unconscious state.

This only happened as God himself moved from the scattered un-focussing of his own consciousness, and which can be described as unconsciousness, to now focussing it onto, or into each newly created part of himself.

As soon as God found that he could do this, his love then flowed through him consciously for the first time, and it was now also able to reach all of his parts consciously, and to be eventually known to them all even as they also now grew separately conscious, but remaining uniformly still all connected in oneness to God.

What does it mean that the inner reflects the outer then, if the inner is in fact the same as the outer, as I am saying here?

The oneness shines on itself in such unique ways that it gives itself resonating areas of differential separateness. These areas depend on the flowing of love. All is uniform within the oneness, except for an area that is blocking love in some way in itself.

This blockage is what is reflected back onto the rest of the whole, and this can be seen as it reciprocates or replicates itself around the location of the blockage in such a way that the blockage will eventually always self-heal itself.

This takes place as it moves from its own unconscious blocking of love to a greater conscious allowing of love to flow through itself now unimpeded in all ways.

Each soul or part of God has been given a sort of on/off switch of consciousness that operates in them from love.

This is what gives us this idea of an inner and outer state, and also of the idea of anything, including ourselves, separately existing, but this is in fact the only way that consciousness can ever exist.

Consciousness never exists as a whole within the oneness. It only comes into existence from the isolation of itself from the unconsciousness pool, and from the re-connecting then to other pockets of consciousness also being similarly formed.

Consciousness is an added on factor to oneness that is created as love loves. It is a field that wasn't there before. It arises in a similar way as to how a magnetic field arises around electricity moving through a wire.

When love moves throughout creation going from one part to another, consciousness is created then. It is like a mirror from which all can see themselves within, including both God, and us.

A group, or cosmic, or God consciousness is then also formed for God. By becoming conscious of ourselves then, it is we that give this added consciousness back to God.

The real inner and outer then can be seen to be only descriptions of the consciousness and unconsciousness of God.

The oneness of love allows both states to blend together again into oneness, and God grows from his creation even as his creation grows also from within him.

God is then within us. We cannot exist but for God being in us.

At the same time, God appears to be outside of us, but this is only because consciousness only exists from being condensed out from God's unconsciousness pool from God allowing his love now to be known consciously from within his own parts.

How did the process start, and what sparked God off so to speak?

God at some time or another convoluted his own unconsciousness, and an isolated area of consciousness was then formed in him.

He realised that he could only grow his consciousness further by allowing greater self-recognition of himself. He did this by allowing all others parts of his unconsciousness to be able to do likewise to what he had done spontaneously.

God created souls from within himself as vehicles of his love, and as vessels of his consciousness. God becomes more conscious by us becoming more conscious within him.

From that day forwards, love has lived consciously in all parts of God, and God grows even as he expands in his own self recognition through us being us within God.

thanks Stella,

sometimes I try to write more generally, just about love, and God, and so I do not mention a specific religious figure so much in some of my writings.

thanks Stella, I try to generally interest people first, rather than laying it on too heavily that it might scare them off so to speak....
