Yes! I answer to the question posed above. Yahweh and Brahma are considered God. And Yahweh means I AM while Brahmin means the Self. Most people don’t think of Nature as God. Yet, Nature means Essence. Thus Mother Nature is one with God. Is Nature the Bride of Christ, i.e., one with Him? I say, “yes.”
How would that belief affect our polluting of the atmosphere? Are Mother-Father God coughing due to our treatment of the atmosphere? In accordance to what I just said, the answer is “yes.”
Lets get deeper.
God in the Hebrew, Muslim and Christian traditions is named “Yahweh.” The name literally means “I AM”. In Hindu, Brahman is known as the Self. And what are you? Are you not your Self? Isn’t your Self your Nature, i.e., Essence? Who are you if not I AM?
How does that affect the idea of “God up there” and we “down here?” Is the Earth alongside the entire cosmos one? Is that God. Meditate on the term universe. Lets break it down, Uni-Verse. Well! What does that tell you? That the universe is both unified and diverse?
In the Bible’s Genesis 1:27, it is said God created Adam male and female, male and female created (S)He them. Interestingly, in Genesis 2, we wind up with Eve being secondary to Adam. Indeed, Eve came from the rib of Adam.
Why the disparity between the two?
To speak to this question, lets move on to Genesis 2. In this chapter, God creates Adam, i.e., Man. This contradicts Genesis 1:27! In chapter 2, it appears God and humanity had divorced, or murdered, His Wife, His second half. Thus He made Adam. Then He saw that Adam was lonely and made Eve from His rib.
Genesis 1 actually speaks to the Tao. The Tao is realized in the “Yin” (female) and “Yang” (male) symbol. In essence, Tao is closer to Genesis 1:27 than it is to Genesis 2.
So what happened?
Genesis 2 reflects a time in history in which humanity was moving from hunting/gathering cultures and becoming farmers. This is the reason God curses us and boots us out of Eden, a place of innocence. We thus had to labor in pain. This curse is not only for Eve, who tempted Adam into eating the apple, the fruit of knowledge. The curse is on Adam and ultimately all of us. Thus, the curse continues. We are all Adams and Eves and we are creating it.
Did you know that if you don’t believe in a curse, you will not be cursed anymore? When you hear an external curse on you, or internal, then you foster the manifestation of the curse. Our thoughts and belief systems have landed us in a Hell on Earth! Don’t blame it on God or Nature. God and Nature keeps saying, “you fools are doing this to yourself and the consequences will be natural.” For this act, we are damned and are swimming in an Ocean of toxins. Thus we have global warming and presidents such as Donald Trump. These too are toxic. What is Trump if not a manifestation of Adam’s (Man’s) arrogance. And I’m not negating Hilary on this one. She too is THE MAN!
Who is creating the destruction of the planet through pollution, constant wars, alienation, spousal abuse and other arenas my readers may speak to? So, don’t blame this on the Universal God. We caused it our self. So, lets take responsibility to get out of it!
We also hire psychopathic thugs to “rule over us”. They are our Gods these days. Yes, I am saying corporations and the likes of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, the Rothchilds and Adolf Hitler are psychopaths. By using the word psychopath, I mean they care only about themselves and don’t give care about you, the environment, your children, and future generations. What they want is power and money. Meanwhile, money isn’t based on anything, as such we are living in a “Matrix” environment. We are living within a hallucination. Or, if you’d rather, we are living a lie! Being known as a liar is better. Its more to the point. Let’s not mince words!
The curse of Genesis 2 is what started all of this. In saying this, I don’t ditz God and Goddess. Indeed, they are our Nature. I am saying the responsibility is you, me, Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton, and the reader. We have cursed ourselves. A curse, even if it is from some jealous God, continues only if we believe in it. We did it to ourselves. Thus, we need to take responsibility.
I don’t even care if you are an atheist. What is an atheist if not a being who is a-theistic, meaning not full of theories or theism. As Goethe states, “Give them the stone of Sophia (Wisdom) and you’ll find philosophy gone, and what’s left? The Stone!”
This is why Christ says to many skeptics, “if you so say.” My question to the reader is what are you saying and isn’t it time to change your mind? Yes, I am saying we need to change ourselves. We need to put our big boy and girl pants on and take responsibility. We can’t place our responsibility on government, church, corporations, etc. We need to become partners in Nature’s Process, or what the Tao Te Ching calls the Way.
The Way? Doesn’t that make God more of a verb than a noun?
The state of our current world was spoken to in the story of the Fall in Genesis 2, We fell. We lost contact with I AM, our Nature.
Are we doomed? Hey, isn’t the Fall a season? Doesn’t Fall happen prior to Winter. Are we in Winter now? My answer is yes. Look at the decimation of the planet that we have created. In body, mind and spirit, we have fallen from Grace, meaning we have become and are fostering a dead planet. We are in the throngs of winter.
The destruction and death of the planet mirrors our destructive behaviors, thoughts and belief systems. We are killing the planet and ourselves. But be cool, everything ends. Chill out about it!
Isn’t it time we fostered Spring? Imagine the drastic change we need to engage in for this to happen. How would we start it. I’ve begun the conversation, and admit, I don’t know. I can grasp the problem and speak to it. I do realize we need to stop believing in the Biblical curse that man will rule over woman. Curses only work if we believe in them.
What kind of God would stop us from getting out from under a curse? A Republican God? Or a Democrat? Or how about those damn socialists! No! I say. Its us!
I agree with John Lennon who sings in the song, “Revolution” “Well, you better free your mind instead.” Damn hippie! He was right. Was that why he was assassinated? What will happen with you, me, and the world if we began an evolution while getting beyond revolutions.
We can’t keep going about in circles, now can we?
