Distraction: Existence of God

This is a spoiler alert: This is a distraction. This is the gate to the Gateless Gate. You will not pass through the eye of a needle while contemplating silly things such as this.

However my father had brought up a story in which he asked him mother who created God and his mother replied with, “you don’t ask those kinds of questions.”

She is as right as the person who tries to answer the question, but I will humor the situation as both non-answer and answer are within the total answer.

Here it is:

Well to scripture it says that the I am is the alpha and the omega, that there is no beginning and no end, and has always has been eternally. This thing in which it describes in the Bible is God. The ultimate faceless face, this energy never dissipates regardless of the apparent dying and rebirth of bodies and other objects on this earth, there always is some balance of energy.

The short answer is, is that God as the concept exists sure, it was created and manifested from something that does not make its own distinction just like a tree doesn’t claim its own label. If the answer is seen clearly you will know (not intellectual know) but know that whatever is there in the absence of words, that there is not a seer but it seems to be empty. It is like the cup that has been emptied of its contents, even though it is empty it is still full. This is the effortless seeing in which you have to look at this question.

God is within all, in fact the whole thought of separation is what brings about this question, to simply put it, it isn’t even the fact that God was created, it was that everything around you is this thing, there is nothing outside of the scope. It is much easier considering this if you look and find out what you are though. For how can you even consider such a question without even questioning the foundation that makes up you? If you can’t even answer what is suppose to be a simple question as what are you, how can you answer a question like, “Who created God?” or “Does God Exist.” Those questions should come later (if you still want to ask them after you find out what you are.)

What is it that says “I know that God exists.” or even simpler that “I exist.” Upon observation, the tack of I only comes from the minds recognition that the thought of something needs a label, so it puts the I thought into it to bring some illusory control to the thought. this is where the “This is mine.” This is nothing short of an incomplete once it occurs. So instead of there being just love, it turns into, “I love this.” and we both know this is shallow at best, both limited and narrow minded (not saying its bad, just stating its boundaries.) Instead of anger happening, it turns possessive and becomes, “I am angry.” So anger is drawn out instead of for example a quarrel between ducks in a pond; once the quarrel is done with, they go their separate ways forgetting about what took place, there is no grudge to be held.

The block comes from the individuals thinking, that their way is THE way instead of seeing reality and truth for its instantaneousness perfect flow that it has always been.

 

You don’t like this answer because (a) you aren’t in control of it. (b) it doesn’t match YOUR idea of it. By the way, it isn’t your idea, sorry pal, just because it is in your voice in your head, doesn’t make it yours. There is no you to have the idea. and (c) There is no you, and the thought has you wrapped in slavery, that’s why you aren’t liberated. It isn’t even involuntary slavery, completely voluntary on your part because you have every opportunity to be free of it, but you insist this is what you want. If you didn’t want it… well… you would be free of attachment.

To sum things up… it just comes down to you, not me showing you anything, it comes down to you looking for yourself. There are no beliefs here, just seeing, transmission, and maybe with a little luck, reception. Nothing and Everything is this thing, in your case, i’m guessing, it’s God.
