How to Keep Others Happy and Comfortable

In my previous post in Spirituality, I revealed seven ways to behave that will promote comfort in other human beings.  Today, I will talk about the original 10 Commandments as reported by Moses and their relevance in light of the Truth: Everything is God.  I’ll show you why seven of the 10 Commandments are not entirely accurate and which three are most vital in assuring the comfort and happiness of other incarnations of God.

God_Man

  1. The first commandment Moses gave the people was:  Do not worship any other gods.  This one is entirely unnecessary, because it is impossible to do.  There are no other gods to worship!  One might choose to worship money, but money is not a god.  One might choose to worship “the devil” (Satan), but not only is the devil not a god, the devil does not exist.  Nothing exists that is not God.
  2. Do not make any idols?  That practice ended for the most part when human beings realized it was a fruitless endeavor.  Inanimate objects, while being wholly comprised of God, do not contain actionable God matter.  In other words, expecting anything or anybody else to enrich your life, make you happy and more comfortable is not going to be successful.  That’s why most everyone stopped doing this centuries ago.
  3. Do not misuse (take in vain) the name of God.  Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt.  God is a little tougher than a six-year-old.  Besides, when you speak to or think about (pray to) God, you are merely talking to yourself.  After all, you ARE God.  If you ask God to damn someone or something, that cannot happen, because there is no Hell.  To God, this is nonsense and entirely inconsequential to God’s mission in the Universe.
  4. Keep the Sabbath holy. This one never made any sense.  Why only one day out of seven?  If you wish to be “holy” – and what does THAT mean? – why would you only do it one day a week? Suppose you found yourself on Jupiter where a day is less than 10 hours long. When would the Sabbath be?  If you choose to be holy, then be holy every minute of every day, no matter where in the Universe you happen to find yourself.
  5. Honor your Mother and Father.  Suppose your Mother is a crack whore and your Father is completely unknown. To honor them would be unnatural and a bit loony.  You are here because God put you here to be Him for a while.  Of course you have a Mother and Father, but they were God, too.  Skip the middle man and honor God, if you feel the need to honor someone.  God doesn’t care who you honor, if anyone.  God requires that many people NOT honor Him. It is necessary to maintain the balance of good and evil that ensures the most comprehensive tactile experience for God.
  6. Do not murder (kill). This one is a keeper, even though God requires killing in order to ensure the most comprehensive tactile experience.  Indeed, God has killed and does kill people daily via natural disasters.  God designed the forces of nature to facilitate this necessity.   if you succeed in killing people, it is because God wanted it done.  Otherwise, you would have failed.  After all, God wiped out the entire world on numerous occasions. Sometimes, as God, we try to do the same thing. But, it IS very uncomfortable to be killed.  Most people are not happy to “die”.  Even though we never cease to exist, these bodies do die and it usually is not a pleasant time for the individual soul.  Especially if that soul believes in heaven and hell.  So, if you want to keep people comfortable and happy, don’t kill them.
  7. Do not commit adultery. God doesn’t care who you screw or why. This one was thrown in by selfish spouses who do not believe that God doesn’t care.  God REQUIRES adultery to ensure the most comprehensive tactile experience. To us, in our individual incarnation of God, this seems important in a moral sense.  But as already discussed, God is amoral.  God is certainly not going to lose sleep over soap opera drama.
  8. Do not steal.  This commandment assumes that the concept of ownership is valid.  Physical property cannot be owned.  It can be used for as long as your body lives, but it is owned by God, because it IS God.  God gave Himself the Universe. Everything IS God and belongs to Him.  Is it possible for your right hand to steal the blood from your left hand?  Of course not. Blood belongs to the whole body.  Everything belongs to everyone, because everyone is the same solitary owner: God.  However, human beings were designed to be selfish and react negatively when they “lose” things.  It makes them uncomfortable and unhappy.  While it is necessary for God to experience all manner of behavior, your particular incarnation of God may elect to preserve the comfort and happiness of those around you, if you find that it makes you comfortable and happy.  So, we’ll keep this one as well. Try to give instead of take, it´s much better to make others feel great. Like to give an elektroroller kaufen,
    it´s an electric scooter that´s perfect for everybody.
  9. Do not lie (bear false witness against thy neighbor).  Ever wonder why we have the ability to lie?  Why did God make us this way?  By now, the reason should be obvious to you.  God REQUIRES lying in order to ensure the most comprehensive tactile experience.  Lies serve to illuminate the Truth.  Without contrast, the Truth could not be verified.  But once again, lying often makes people uncomfortable and unhappy which in turn can make YOU unhappy and uncomfortable.  This is our third keeper.
  10. Do not covet.  That’s like saying “I wish my feet belonged to me.”  Well, they DO belong to you. Everything belongs to you. You are God and everything IS God.  Coveting is merely the precursor to stealing, which we have already examined.  This one is unnecessary.

As a result, there are just three things you must endeavor to not do in order to keep other people and yourself happy and comfortable:

  1. Don’t kill.
  2. Don’t steal.
  3. Don’t lie.

 

 

I Am God; So Are You

If you do not believe in a Creator, then you probably won’t find this very interesting.  In fact, it will seem as much like a fairy tale as any liturgical rendition, an exercise in speculation, a work of fiction, or perhaps the ramblings of a very disturbed mind.

Thousands of religious authors have professed to writing down words somehow delivered to them from, or inspired by a Supreme Being. Billions devoutly believe those words.  The veracity of all those words was determined by thousands of mortal men throughout history; still edited and tweaked today for consumption by under-informed humans.

At the heart of every religion is the struggle between good and evil. Good is generally defined as those characteristics of thought and behavior which serve to prolong, enhance and improve enjoyment of life. Conversely, evil seeks to shorten life, make it miserable or end it all together.

Naturally, religions promote the good stuff with their Supreme Being of choice as the final judge of individual success.  People live their whole lives trying to be good and asking forgiveness for when they are bad.  People are taught to pray to their Supreme Being, as though such solicitation could change the behavior of other people, animals, inanimate objects, Mother Nature and the Universe, to name a few.

We are taught that our Creator is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. We learn that the Creator is NOT us, but something separate and immeasurably more powerful than any single human being. There is a kernel of truth to every story. Let’s see how it all began….

There is ONLY God. God was, is and always will be. For reasons known only to God, God decided to create everything.  As was the custom (this Universe is not the only Universe), Creation was made from the substance of God. After all, nothing else existed yet. Just as human biological matter is required to make humans, God matter is required to make Universes. Everything you see, feel, touch, smell and taste was made wholly from the matter of God. In our Universe, matter cannot be created or destroyed, just like God.

God created our physical laws to provide for a self-sustaining, infinite evolution of God’s matter.  Dust to dust and all that. From the smallest quark to the most gigantic stars – and everything in between (including nothing)- it all consists exclusively of God matter.

As do I. As do you. As does everyone and every thing there is. Within everything, each tiny bit of God matter contains every bit of what God is.  However, each bit of matter only manifests that portion of God which events and environment bring to pass by virtue of a symphony of evolutionary paths, unique to every bit having forbearance.

This evolution of matter occurs at every level, from invisible micro-particles, to compounds, to biological systems, immune systems, ecosystems, solar systems, galaxies and universes. They all start as God, evolve as God and return to God only to be utilized to create more stuff.  After all, that’s what a Creator does: manufactures stuff that didn’t exist before.

In a physical sense, it is easy to allow that I and You and everything else IS God. There was nothing else, but God, from which to create everything.

God therefore created Man; the result of billions of years of evolutionary complexity, originally made inevitable by the Creator’s infinite Wisdom at the time of the “Big Bang” – the current euphemism for the moment of Creation.

How Mankind got here and that we ARE God is fundamentally obvious, given our current knowledge of the physics of our universe. God created evolutionary systems, powered by DNA, RNA and chromosomes, that ultimately resulted in our current evolutionary situation – that of being the only self-aware, intelligent living thing on the planet.

This happenstance was not accidental, but rather inevitable. God is not only every physical thing, but every physical thing is comprised also of God’s character as well. God’s character is infinitely robust. It spans the entire gamut from evil to good. God created everything, including intentions and the lack thereof.  A rock has no intention, but may manifest its evil by crushing your skull should you contact it at a high enough rate of speed.

God’s Creation necessarily evolved to endow Mankind with a brain capable of complexly analyzing God’s Creation and to ask all the questions thereof.  It is that consciousness that is a character version of GOD. Some of us are very evil and some of us are very good.  Everyone is capable of both, but evolution and environmental factors created by God cause each of us to manifest a fairly narrow character comprised of both good and evil.

Evil is a term wrought with mental pictures of demons, death, fire, hell, damnation, etc., but there is no evidence in Creation that demons, the devil or damnation exist. Hell is a concept designed to control the evil part of God that dwells within each of us.  Likewise, Heaven is the concept reserved as a reward for good behavior.  What a helpful thing to believe! But those places do not exist and they do not need to exist.

God’s goal in creating Mankind was not to run some kind of moral experiment. Mankind has behaved immorally since we’ve been able to track our history.  It seems rather psychopathic to create so many people, only to send the vast majority of them to Hell. Would you send your children to Hell?  Your children are just as much you and I and God as they are everything in Creation,  The concept of Heaven seems equally pointless, if not eventually boring and worthy of suicide.

So, why ARE we here? Before Creation, God was sensory deprived. We are God experiencing Creation. God wanted to see, hear, smell, touch and taste everything and everybody created.  God set everything in motion, with built in obstacles, perils and rewards. As each individual, God responds to Creation uniquely; sometimes helping, sometimes hindering. The bad things that happen allow God to experience grief, sorrow, hatred, tears, depression and sadness.  The good things that happen allow God to feel happiness, joy, elation and love. God experiences BOTH sides of every conflict, every celebration, every defeat, every victory.   Now God is us and we are all about senses.

All this talk about good and evil is irrelevant.  When our body dies, our soul/mind/consciousness returns to God and our self-awareness vanishes, replaced by the all-awareness of God being everyone still “alive”. God’s all-awareness requires the self-awareness of each of us, necessarily pruning our awareness to only our physical senses and a vaguely nagging thought that we cannot imagine our own beginning and find an ending completely irrational. THAT thought is the TRUTH.

We have no beginning or end because we are God.

Ergo, behavior while “alive” is inconsequential to the “afterlife”.

God set each of us with a mind. A mindset. Each designed to produce all manner of experiences with other humans. As each of us perform according to our unique mindset, God experiences Creation as each of the people with whom interaction occurs.  The point is not WHAT we do, but that we simply DO what we do.  Being alive allows God to experience Creation, not just from within you, but from the viewpoint of everyone with whom you interact.

Because mindsets run the gamut of evil to good, with most within 20 points of center, neither side will ever prevail indefinitely. History is replete with examples. This balance ensures indefinite preservation of the experience of both good and evil and everything in between.  God’s goal.

Relax. We are God experiencing physical existence. How we choose to live our lives is extremely necessary, whether for good or for bad, but entirely inconsequential to our existence as God.

What About Right and Wrong?

right-wrong

Believing that everything is God, every galaxy, every star, every bit of space debris, every planet, every moon, every plant, animal, fish, reptile and bird, every speck of dust, every virus and bacteria, assures us that we have always existed and always will.

Because we ARE God, we cannot be created or destroyed. Of course, these bodies can be created and destroyed, but that part of us that KNOWS who we are – that’s God – and it cannot be destroyed.  When these bodies of ours peter out, we rejoin the whole of God where we become privy to all the knowledge of all things that have existed, do exist or will exist.  There’s no need to jump through moral hoops while in this existence.  There’s NO CHANCE that God will send Himself to Hell.  Indeed, as already discussed below, God REQUIRES that we all be evil sometimes and some of us to be evil most of the time in order to completely appreciate every possible emotion and experience that humans can have.

Most of us display more “good” than “evil” in our daily lives.  As we each privately know, what we display for public consumption can differ greatly from what we actually think or even do when no one is looking. And there are plenty of times when we think we are doing good, but ultimately ascerbate the situation, thus becoming “bad” or “evil” in the eyes of the person judging.  It can become impossible to know what the right or good thing to do or say is.

Good makes life more comfortable and presumably longer. Bad makes life uncomfortable and possibly shorter.  The length of time we are “alive” is inconsequential. The fact that life occurred satisfies God.  The experiences of that life enriches God’s tactile experience (and thereby all of us) regardless of how brief, inconsequential or miserable that life might be. God (we) needs to experience everything, both good and bad.

So, if we do not have to be “good” to get to “heaven”, if even the most evil among us are still part of God, are crucial to God’s mission and return to the Whole just like everyone else, then how are we to conduct ourselves? If every despicable person gets to heaven, why bother being “nice”?

We are beings of comfort. The first thing we search for when abandoned is shelter. Shelter is more comfortable than battling the elements.  The next thing we want is food.  A full belly is more comfortable than a starving stomach.  Then we want security. A lock on the door is more comfortable than no door at all.  It is better to be comfortable than not.

Therefore, while we wait to rejoin the Whole after body death, it is more comfortable to make ourselves and each other more comfortable than it is to cause discomfort. It’s not hard to do and there aren’t but a handful of suggestions on how to do it:

  1. Treat every person with dignity. God put them here. They have inherent worth.
  2. Utilize justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  3. Accept one another and encourage spiritual growth.
  4. Search for truth and meaning;
  5. Let your conscience be your guide.  Use of the democratic process within groups and in society at large;
  6. Promote peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  7. Respect the interdependent web of all existence (God) of which we are a part.
