Pain and the Illusion of God

Narrowing life down into personal experience is what the godbeing does to itself in order to explore its own condition; thus, its knowledge of life has no more certainty to it than does your human knowledge. But you don’t know this, do you? From this narrowed-down point of view, you have depended upon a belief about God to sustain your place in life, even if you only call upon it in emergencies.. Some beneficent being, someone with great power and capacity for love, has nurtured you and is protecting you. You are discovering now, however, that your beliefs about God are a defense against the raw, unadorned truth of your existence. What happens when you discover the absolute fires of creation and realize that there is no God there protecting you and that all along it has been you—that God is a fabrication, not of human intelligence, but of infinite intelligence in its awful contemplation of its own existence? God is created by Not-God.

The truth of godspace is always exerting pressure on illusion. Go deep into prayer #19 and see for yourself! Climb down now to the roots of your pain and draw upon the godbeing to reconcile your human condition with the godless reality that you are being asked to accept. God both is and is not. In order to stand naked in your own truth, you have to accept the “is not” aspect of God with as much courage as you embrace the “is” aspect. The mind is your greatest enemy in this regard as it generates one defensive shield after another. But there is hope if you fear being alone in the truth. Illusions about God do not shed themselves absolutely because they are necessary absolutely. The veil twists and turns as Hidden Dragon stirs eternally in its lair, but Hidden Dragon alone can bear its nakedness. Godbeings within godbeings within godbeings manage the “rest.”
