What most humans and most religions are afraid to look at

Here is what most humans and most religions are afraid to look at: Perhaps what it is that humans don’t understand about God is that God is not at all what people have thought.

Perhaps God is not an old man in the sky with needs and desires, a personal will and personal fears, and all the inner conflicts, contradictions, turmoil and emotional turbulence of humans. Perhaps God is the Sum Total of Everything—truly, the “All in All,” the “Alpha and the Omega”, “That Which IS”—and perhaps nothing stands outside of this.

If that is true, then YOU do not stand outside of This, and This does not stand outside of you. This means that what you want, God wants. It means that your will for you is God’s will for you.

Yet what happens when we are of the consciousness “…not as I will, but Thy will be done?” What happens when we make a choice to make God choose for us, and God is saying, “You may do as you wish”? What happens to the will, to the idea, to the request then, if we say to God, you choose for us, but God is saying, you choose for you?

When you make a choice to have God choose for you, you have essentially taken down the sail, let go of the rudder, and set your boat adrift on a stormy sea. This is because God really and truly does choose for you what you choose for you. Or, to put this all another way, if God did have a preference, this, in fact, would be it: that you get to choose.

Now if you do not want to choose, if you want someone else to do the choosing for you, we have a small problem here. You can, of course, give up your future to fate, but the winds of fate, as you must surely have learned, can take you in either of two directions: into safe harbor, or into a shoal, and certain shipwreck.

That is because “fate” is a marvelous acronym for “From All Thoughts Everywhere.” And that includes all of your own previous thoughts, as well as all of the thoughts of others. First will come your own.

The first thing that will happen is that your personal creative Self will turn for direction to your own most powerful thought—which is often found in your subconscious. That is, you are not consciously aware of it. You will then produce an outcome. You simply won’t do it consciously. You’ll do it unconsciously, then claim that what happened was “fate,” or “God’s will.”

In addition to your own thought, your future will also be impacted by the collective consciousness of the world around you; that is, the other human beings who people your life, with whom you travel on your journey, and, to some degree, all the people of the earth, whose combined attitudes too often create the collective experience of the lot of us.

Now, since many of the thoughts belonging to these other people may be strikingly different from each other, you may find yourself battered a bit. This will manifest itself as your feeling “torn” over what to do.

In life, indecision only breeds more indecision—and then, ultimately, a decision that is made for you. That is because, as you will soon discover, not to decide is to decide. The truth is, you are always deciding, it is just a matter of how you are doing it. You are always creating. It is merely a question of what method you use.

My recommendation: make a conscious personal choice about everything.

If you leave the choices about where the world at large is headed to the world at large, the collective consciousness of humanity will set the course and direction of your planet’s future. You can either follow the collective consciousness, or help direct it.

    We have to set our pace and direction. Decide on a path and take all actions to reach till the end, else we will be led by others in unknown territory.

      Correct, first decide what do you want? then make the plan to get it and last execute the plan. When you know what do you want, keep in mind that you have already achieved it, but its just few miles away from you, go out there and claim it, its yours 🙂
