Buddhist Accidentally Finds God
God, in reality, is never what we think, as what we think is a concept, rather than the reality itself.
What is reality? Reality is not unknowable: it is natural to us, and we cannot be separated from it. If reality is natural to us, then it can be proven. This unchanging reality, on investigation, turns out to be our pure consciousness, beyond conceptual, impure consciousness. If there is no pure consciousness, then there is no God. But there is pure consciousness … !
No pure consciousness; no God.
Know pure consciousness; know God.
Humans fall into two categories: those who believe in God, and those who do not (of course, there are others – those who are not sure, and those who don’t care – but here, we are simplifying into believers and non-believers).
Interestingly, the disbelievers only came about because of the believers: one claims something exists, and the other says, “Prove it!” – so the believers started the argument! 😀 Both are arguing over a concept rather than the reality.
We are assailed by demons that separate us, and create anxiety and angst. Angels are inspirational messengers that remind us; they are the symbolic teacher of all phenomena. Through this reminder, we regret our past mischiefs. Genuine recognition is forgiveness. That recognition comes from pure awareness. In other words … !
The realisation of divine, enlightened Spirit liberates conceptual thinking, anxiety, angst, demons … and angels. These conceptual projections obscure reality. When the veil drops away, we come face to face with that which is beyond clinging to ideas.
2 Corinthians 3:17
“But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image with intensifying glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.…”
