God and the Dichotomy of Good vs Evil
Let me start with the most important concept. One that is needed in order to understand the points I will try to make in a clear concise and rationally reasoned way.
GOD IS EVERYTHING
First off, don’t confuse your preconceived notions of your own God view with mine. I like to think that in order to understand the essence of EVERYTHING, it is necessary to keep an open mind and be able to accept that which may not be normally acceptable. I am capable of analyzing my God view from, a whole encompassing aspect, down to the science of the nitty gritty of existence. I prefer to discuss this God concept in terms that are comprehensible to anyone regardless of their personal abilities and knowledge. The idea here is the KISS principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid) which is not directed at you the reader but instead me, as in don’t make it too complicated.
Here are some ways to see that the concept of God is Everything is in my view rational and reasonable. What is our personal relationship within the whole of existence? What is our individual purpose in this life? How do we relate to God the ALL?
First as a matter of faith (lacking substance or evidence) in that the whole (universe) has a consciousness (Godhead). The purpose of the whole is balance and the lack of balance. Tipping the scales so to speak. Creating a movement or action. The dynamics of the universe.
This is where the hard part comes into our understanding of the consciousness of the whole of our existence. First we have to have consensus as to the definition of human Love.
I prefer more than one source for information so as to get the broadest most comprehensive understanding I can. This is a good resource for word definitions: http://www.onelook.com
Try the word “love” in the search field at the top of the page.
Quick definitions from Macmillan for “love”
Love as a verb (the action of loving)
to like or enjoy something very much more...
to be very strongly attracted to someone in an emotional and sexual way more...
to care very much about someone, especially members of your family or close friends more...
used about places, ideas, etc. more...
If God is Everything, then we are asked to love all the negative human aspects of God. This is a very difficult thing to understand and even more difficult to actually do in the reality of our lives. I think the only way to deal with this is through our own dislike of the action and not necessarily the reason (or person who is the cause) for the action. This is what we think of as civilized tolerance for different belief systems. An example would be: I sometimes feel like I want to harm someone (punch to the face) but as a civilized human I suppress the animal instinct and instead point out why I am upset and try to get the other person to understand my disappointment in their actions or words. We can have many inappropriate thoughts but it is important that we not act them out.
Mental Illness and Psychosis (Psychopathy and Sociopathy)
The psychiatric community has estimated that 1% of the human population has some level of serious psychosis. And is defined as: a serious mental illness that affects your ability to know what is real and changes your personality and behavior. Then to be more succinct psychopathy: a mental disorder in which an individual manifests amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.
And finally sociopathy: a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.
These are the people who would prevent us from our pursuits of happiness and cause grievous harm, suffering and destruction to the overall goodwill of the rest of us. The only answer to solving this problem is to find and point out these behaviors in others and then remove them from the general populace and either correct the behavior and/or keep them confined.
Evil Will and its Elimination from our Existence
Here’s where I will lose some of you readers. This concept maybe a little hard to swallow for many of the brainwashed masses. (Sheeple) If we accept God as the consciousness of the whole of the universe then by extension human consciousness is also God. It is my thinking that as a unified humanity that we can accomplish anything we set out to do (the power of God). The primary goal in achieving unity would be to eliminate human evil in all its manifestations. We the people, will Evil to be gone. And POOF it is! I tried not to get religious and not use religious texts to make my points. It is written by St. John the Divine in Revelations, that Christ comes and throws Satan into the bottomless pit. I define bottomless as eternally falling. Poof it (Evil) goes into non-existence.
Simplified GOD and Humans
God is the ALL. Love God. Come together in the faith that God is our Will. We then will Evil to not exist. Peace and goodwill (will of love) towards mankind (kind men) and on earth as it is in God’s Heaven. And he shall reign for ever and ever! Praise, Love and believe in God and us humans.
