ARE WE GOD?
That’s some title, is it not? An attention grabber for sure. However, a very important question to ask. A question that I have held off posting for many, many years. The reason is this very important question strikes fear into the hearts of people everywhere. We have been conditioned for so long to believe that such a question was off-limits. Not just off-limits, mind you, but we have been taught that to ask this question is the most blasphemous thing a person can do.
Have you ever wondered why that is?
What if the reason we have been conditioned to not ask this question is because the question itself may prove to be the very thing that sets us free?
Now I could post all sorts of scriptures that would make many second guess what they had been taught about God to begin with.
For example: That God is somehow far from them… when scripture teaches us that God is within us, through us, and is us. For God is all that exists.
1 Corinthians 8:6 – yet for us there is but ONE GOD, the Father, FROM WHOM ARE ALL THINGS and WE EXIST FOR HIM; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him (CHRIST).
We (who we believe ourselves to be) exist for GOD (the only one that really exists) and WE (Who we believe ourselves to be) exist THROUGH Christ.
The SON (who we are in this world) makes the Father known. And why does the SON (God’s creation) do this? … Because no one has SEEN God at any time.
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
You can’t SEE the SEER people. The SEER declares the ONE who sees. This is hard for me to explain and make plain here as well, which is why I have held off so long from posing this question before you all.
Ponder this for a moment: Who is the one seeing out of your eyes? Is that you? Now take it a step further, who is the one who creates the dreams you have at night?
SURELY, you believe yourself to be your conscious mind. But your conscious mind is so much smaller than your sub conscious mind. In addition your conscious mind is IN your subconscious mind, and your subconscious mind is in your conscious mind… and news flash people…. Your conscious mind and subconscious mind are BOTH IN YOU.
No one can know the subconscious mind (for lack of a better title), but the conscious mind makes the subconscious mind known.
I know this may be a lot to take in and may seem like a stretch. Nevertheless, the point of this simple essay is only to get you to question…. WHO AM I? AM I IN CONTROL? WHAT IS THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD?
When the disciples asked Jesus to show them God, to make God tangible and understandable to them… what did Jesus say?
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me
Jesus said, IF YOU HAVE SEEN ME YOU HAVE SEEN GOD! He said God is IN him, and he is IN GOD. He said, even the words he spoke came from God (not WHO they thought Jesus was).
Let me explain that for a second. Jesus understood the truth. That HE AND GOD were ONE and the same… That the “Jesus” part was a creation or the SON (offspring) of GOD (THE ONLY ONE WHO REALLY EXISTS).
Another way of understanding this mystery is to look at our own sense of being. Who we believe ourselves to be in this world, our names, our pet peeves, our likes, our dislikes, our hang ups, etc… that is a creation of WHO WE REALLY ARE. Who we are in this world is who we CHOOSE to be in this world. We can easily change who we are. We can change our names, try new things, we can do whatever we want, become whoever we want… we are in control of who we project into this world… In other words, who we project into this world is our offspring. Who we project into this world is our creation, our child… And the only way for others to get to know the REAL US is by the CHILD (our creation) to express who we really are. Because no one can really know who we REALLY are, all they can is WHO WE DECLARE TO THE WORLD.
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
So the SPIRIT within us, the “Lord” (existing one/one who truly exists) projects into this world the person we believe ourselves to be. And Jesus knew this well. Jesus understood that who he was in the world was simply the “child” of the God within us all… He wouldn’t dare say I AM GOD… yet he understood that God was LORD, that he was ONE with God and if ONE… then there is no other. This is a mystery and one that is hard to explain.
Who everyone knew Jesus to be in the world, who Jesus knew himself to be in this world WAS NOT GOD. He made that clear when he told the rich who was searching for answers, “there is NONE that is good save God”
When Jesus spoke to the disciples they couldn’t bear to hear this. They couldn’t grasp this. The disciples saw a man named Jesus and believed HE WAS GOD in the Flesh, people make this same mistake today. The belief that God is somehow separate from them…
Jesus wanted desperately for them to know the truth…. He even prayed that they would know that they were all ONE.
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Who we have believed ourselves to be is the creation of who we really are WITHIN. It is the IMAGE of who we really are… An image is not the source but a representation of the source.
“Let US (PLURAL) make MAN in OUR (PLURAL) IMAGE”
Don’t WE (who we really are) actually create who we want to be for others to see? Don’t we all do that?
We do it so often that sometimes it’s hard for us to keep track of who we really are, because we are so busy creating the image of who we want to be… BOTH CONSCIOUSLY AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY… And that is the reason the world seems to be in the mess it is.
Now let’s take that though a step further. First we create who we project into this world (who we think we are) and then we CREATE physical representations of (who we think we are) into this physical world as well by having children.
My wife and I said, “wouldn’t it be wonderful to create a child in our image”… and we then begin the joyous process of having children. WE CREATE HUMAN BEINGS. This begins within us and we then birth it out into this physical world. Then we go so far as to FORM those CHILDREN into WHO WE WANT THEM TO BE… Which in effect makes it hard for them to TRULY KNOW WHO THEY ARE… which is THE SAME AS WHO WE ALL REALLY ARE. Because there is ONLY GOD.
The word “Lord” in Greek, we defined literally means “THE EXISTING ONE, THE ONE WHO EXISTS”
When Moses dares to share GOD with Pharoah… what was the NAME OF GOD AGAIN?
“I AM” – “I EXIST”
BE STILL AND KNOW I AM GOD!
Think about this for a second. God can never forsake you or leave you?
WHY? you ask… Because YOU CANNOT FORSAKE OR DENY YOURSELF (who you really are within)… And it doesn’t even matter if you don’t believe what I am writing is true… because you can’t deny who you are to begin with.
2 Timothy 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
What if this is the key to our freedom? Could it be that we ALL are GOD in a manner of speaking? That we are all many members of the ONE BODY WHICH IS GOD?
1 Corinthians 12:12
For as the BODY is ONE, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are ONE body: SO ALSO IS CHRIST.
And if that be true is it so far-fetched to think that we all ARE projecting who we think we are into the world and creating all the wonderful things and terrible things we experience… because we simply believe that is what is supposed to be.
Is it possible that we create our own suffering and create our joy? Is this possible? The scriptures seem to back up this belief.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he
Job said, he greatest FEAR came upon him. Is it possible that our thoughts create our world? Is this why the scriptures warn us that the power of life and death is in the tongue?
Death and life are in the power of the tongue
Consider something on a tangible scale… Look at your wall… now imagine a beautiful painting there… Can you not simply be imagining this and desiring this, create this and manifest this into your world?
Didn’t Jesus say, “with FAITH NOTHING shall be impossible to you?”
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
BELIEF is the KEY to creation. Let me tell you why.
WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE YOU RECEIVE.
If you don’t think you have power to calm the storm, YOU CAN’T… because you have created you inability to do so. If you BELIEVE you can turn your situation around, YOU WILL. If this wasn’t true then why would the scriptures point us in this direction?
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
IF YOU BELIEVE YOU WILL RECEIVE! But if you don’t want to believe these words, then look to your lives and ask yourself if anything in your life that has happened was something you couldn’t believe would happen… Then ask yourself, is anything that you want in life but don’t have something you truly believe you can have.
For years I have lived a life of saying I would do this or that before I found myself doing this or that. That goes for the good and the bad. Because if I am truly honest with myself… this is the story that I told myself and believed so what other story could be played out before me.
Few people are ready to grab unto the belief that their every waking moment is a creation of who they are to begin with. The problem is most are creating only fear and misery in their life… because they have been programmed since birth to believe that they are no good sinners and that they are incapable of saving themselves from their own ignorant creation.
One way of looking at it is… Your CONSCIOUS mind is the seed giver… An allegory of this is ADAM if you will… Your SUBCONSCIOUS MIND is a sense EVE the MOTHER OF ALL…
When the conscious mind and subconscious mind are of one accord, they are perfect, WHOLE… they are God manifested in this world.
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
One MIND, one God, ONE baptism, One Spirit, ONE…
The problem is the conscious and subconscious mind have been separated, the subconscious mind was taken out of the conscious mind’s control… Just as Eve was taken out of Adam. The big trouble started when the subconscious mind began listening to the wrong HUSBAND… Our ego began talking to our subconscious mind and now we find our greatest fears coming upon us… because we deal more with thoughts of fear and worry and doubt and BELIEVE them to be true, more than we believe that we HAVE THE POWER TO CREATE. So in essence we are ignorantly creating all the time… JUST NOT THE THINGS WE DESIRE. We only create the things we BELIEVE will be.
Another way or looking at it is our subconscious mind is as GOD and our conscious Mind is as ADAM… and there was a time both were one accord and NOW they are separate.
These ideas I put forth, are simply ideas… but well worth pondering.
However just as our EGOTISTICAL IGNORANT thoughts can impregnate our subconscious mind and manifest it into the world… so can OUR CONSCIOUS mind do the same…
This is what the scriptures mean by taking on the mind of Christ, killing off the anti-christ… etc.
We have forgotten the truth and there has been this “veil” between the truth and who we think we are in this world. But this veil is taken away the instant we take up that cross.
2 Corinthians 3:14
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ
Let’s put aside all of our religious indoctrination and the fear that goes along with it for a moment. Let’s dare to ask ourselves the really hard questions.
Like, why is it sometimes we start hearing a song in our head and all of a sudden there it is on the radio. Why is it we daydream of an old friend we haven’t heard from in years and then WHAMO they call? Why is it we dream of things before they happen, think of things before they happen? Why do we constantly say to ourselves “I knew that was going to happen.”
What if there really is more to us then we know.
Let’s look at the facts.
Where is God according to scripture?
1 Corinthians 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth IN you?
Point to your temples people… God is ruling right there from his throne… in his KINGDOM. And where is God’s kingdom?
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
God exists IN his TEMPLE which is who you project into this world. God creates the Temple which is who you project into this world. God exists in his Kingdom… which is WITHIN YOU (who you project into the world).
WHO YOU PROJECT IN THIS WORLD is the TEMPLE OF GOD… AND GOD IS IN THE TEMPLE… and this TEMPLE you can tear down and rebuild at will…
And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
According to scripture GOD exists WITHIN YOU (who you think you are)… Just as the subconscious mind exists within the conscious mind and vice versa.
You are truly the beginning and the end of your life. You are the very center of all things IN YOUR WORLD. Everything everywhere exist outside of you, but has to exist WITHIN you for you to experience it. WHY IS THAT?
What if you dared to look deeper? What would happen if you dared to take responsibility for everything that happens in your life? Now… what would happen if you began to CREATE and ACT… as opposed to simply believing you are going along for the ride.
Your experiences are dependent on your choices and your choices are dependent on what you believe can and cannot be accomplished.
The god of this world is YOUR EGO… Your ego is the one that tells you that you are powerless and that you have no control. Your ego created a god outside of you, far away from you, a god that you cannot see, hear, or feel… your ego has led you out of the garden of Eden (which is you)… You ego has you focused on everything outside you as opposed to turning within. And it is this GOD OF THIS WORLD (your ego) that has blinded us of the GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST (awakening)
2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Jesus said… if you want to know the way to the FATHER… then look at me. Jesus said I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE… Jesus also said so is everyone else.
AS GOD IS… SO ARE WE
1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
I wrote this article not to say I am God… but to pose a question to all of you… IF YOU AND I AND EVERYONE WAS GOD how would that change the way we live our life?
And for those that say we should not question such things… I will remind you of what Jesus said to his disciples.
9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
My prayer has always been “Teach me the truth no matter what the cost.” Because it is only the TRUTH that can set us all free… The question I have now is… Just who am I praying to? If the only God there is, is within me to begin with.
It is important to note that being one with something, and understanding that that “something” is all there really is, does not make you that “something” as well …
The YOU you ARE in this world is a projection of something so much greater than who you believe, and know yourself to be… Who you are in this world is a “HOST” for something much greater than you, hiding away within you, pulling the strings, the ghost in the machine. The LORD (EXISTING ONE) OF HOSTS is another name for “God” in scripture. But make no mistake about it, “No one has seen God at anytime…” YOU CAN’T SEE THE SEER after all.
Which is why, the greatest of all prayers is… “Not my will be done Lord (existing one) but thine!”

I can create for me but where’s the joy in that? Its hard to enjoy much when so many are suffering… Maybe instead of creating for me I aim to create joy harmony wholeness for everyone else and in that shared mutual reality we dwell forever. -happily pondering❤🙌
Nearly six years after this was written – and I found it.
So true. IT MAKES PERFECT sense.
Love, light and blessings. And so liberating.
Great article. I agree 100%. I KNOW that I AM GOD. But, it is a matter of KNOWING GOD. GOD IS REAL.
One must BE in a position to KNOW. You are always guided by the Spirit of God.
Or as the ancient saying goes: “Man know thyself.”
Our subconscious mind could be God as our Ego could be the Evil …. Thanks for this article I needed it. 🙏🌞☝
I loved reading this Jacob; the truth is wonderful and amazing. THANK YOU!
woah! loved reading this as I come from a christian background but only recently began asking myself about all this! its insanely cool!
Timothy, thanks so much for your comment man. We have all been blinded by things those in power have told us was true. But the truth sets you free, the truth is salvation from the lies we have believed and these lies keep us from finding out who we really are and what we are capable of. I sure hope the essays and videos here continue to encourage you. Please do subscribe, continue to comment, and share any of my writings with anyone you believe will benefit from it. Just remember not everyone is ready for some of this. Peace to you and yours, Jacob
You keep using as reference ,scripture,. No body of knowledge can be used exclusively. It is truly in a hypersphere/sigularity eternal duality drive engine, all for one and one for all! Any laymen may pick up a copy of quantum mechanics and string theory and see for themselves that this all points and PROVES what you are saying is true. No!!! God isn’t about macho power and control and create frikkin giant rocks and all that crap. It’s about choosing good over bad,love over hate. That’s why we have such discord on the planet now!! We create the universe,world,future,past,present, by our actions choices. Here’s a hypothetical; if every human being on earth changed and had nothing but selfless love in their hearts and mind; and every decsion every choice was made in favor and in deference to that which is the progenitor of good…what would we end up with?? A frikkin paradise!! A utopia!!! A heaven!!!!! You are indeed God!!! It’s just not that God you see in an action flick!!! If you do that then you become Satan. Ahhh shit noone gives a shit what I think about anyway! but this guy who wrote this stuff is cool to me!!!
Neil, I appreciate the comment. Thanks so much foor sharing and I sure hope you enjoy other essays on here and don’t forget to leave your thoughts. Have the best weekend ever! Jacob
This is fantastic! Good job on putting this together and showing the world a better light than the one religion has tried to provide. I love how you connected the conscious and subconscious element into these scriptures and ideas. I believe it helps to close the gap between highly abstract spiritual concepts and our reality. I recently wrote a blog post on two scriptures that sum up we are god also. I think many Christians are turned off to this idea because they have the wrong concept of what God is. They consider it blasphemy for us to say “we are god” because they don’t realize that the eternal aspect of who they are cannot be separated from what it already is. However, our very limited conscious reality is the veil that keeps them in the dark. Anyway, great job and keep up the great work. Awesome site and awesome post!
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I have been swamped with work, life, etc and I haven’t had a chance to respond… I can’t wait to take a look at your post, I’m going there now… I hope you come on back and enjoy more of the essays I have posted here. Peace to you and yours, Jacob
“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”
Indeed Candace! What a true statement. Peace to you and yours, Jacob
If you really think about it, God is all there is. It is in Him that we move and have our being. Everything is made up of atoms that contain electrons and protons. Those electrons and protons when reduced even further are made up of light (photons). Photons cannot be altered in anyway or destroyed, this is a scientific fact. All other sub atomic particles can be altered and destroyed, but photons cannot be. Photons are also called messenger particles. In the bible, they are referred to as angels of light (messengers of God), in the science world, they are called angles of light because they come from distant stars and nebulas and hit the earth at an angle. This means everything in all of creation in its most purest form is light. The bible says God is light. Everything is light. We are light vibrating at a very low frequency. Our negative thinking and our harboring or hate, resentment, predudice, pride, and greed keep our vibration low. Positive thinking and the letting go of the above mentioned things raise our vibration. When our vibration raises, our reality shifts to match the same frequency. This is how we enter hell and raise ourselves up out of it. For a very long time, I have believed that we do not have free will and that we couldn’t simply change our thoughts and create a better reality for ourselves and for others. I was absolutely wrong. We do have free will. We bind ourselves in hell with our thoughts. Everything begins as a thought, everything. That is why we are instruced to take our thoughts captive. Every act of violence and good began as a thought in someones mind. Thoughts are spirit (photon) and they have vibration. Everything vibrates, this is a fact of quantum physics. When we give our energy to our negative thoughts, we pull ourselves (our vibration) and others (the vibration of others) down into a denser reality (a lower hell). We do create our own individual reality and at the same time, we help co-create the mass reality or mass consciousness. That is why it is said what you do to another, you do to yourself. Buddah said you must become the change you want to see in the world and in others. It all starts with us individually. We must raise our vibration in order to ascend into heaven. Again, we do this with positive thinking and by loving others and truly forgiving others for however they have transgressed towards you in the past. We have to let all of that junk go. We have to let all of the hurt and pain we have experienced in our lives go completely. If we don’t, we will continue to anchor ourselves to these lower planes of reality that are the real hell. Remember, everything and I mean everything is consciousness. All of matter and all of reality arise from consciousness. If our consciousness is in a low state, then our reality will be manifested to reflect that state or vibration. This is the truth. It is up to us to create a better reality both individually and collectively. There is no savior outside of ourselves coming back for us. It is our task. This is what overcoming is all about and it is not easy. Religion will have you believe all you have to do is get up in front of their congregation and repeat a prayer, get dunked in their baptismal, tithe your money and your good. They are the blind leading the blind. It is not easy to go against the grain of the mass consciousness. It is not easy to lift heavy weights at the gym, but this is how you get stronger. You cannot get stronger by simply walking into a gym or talking about lifing weights. You have to take action. You have to resist the loaded weight on the bar to overcome it or it will overcome you. Imagine you are laying on a bench with a loaded bar in your hands getting ready to bench press it. If you quit resisting the weight on the bar at anytime, it will overcome you and crush you. You have to work against it to overcome it instead. As you continue doing this, you get stronger. We each have to constantly work against the current dense vibration of our individual reality and collective reality to overcome them. When we quit resisting, we are instantly overcome and are crushed. How many times have we set out to do good just to get yanked back down by negative thinking? This is all truth and it is important for all who are ready for it. It is not an easy road to travel, but it is the only road that leads out of hell and back home. We are the sons and daughters of the most high. We are the prodigal son that must make his way back home to the father to claim our inheritance. Our current reality is not our inheritance and should not be looked at as such. So, yes, we are the essence of God but our essense is barely vibrating. The pulse is barely alive. We must increase the vibration of our God essence to experience our true nature and our true reality at its purist form. We are always thinking. Our minds are always chattering and taking in information from the five senses. How are we to go beyond our inscessent thought and chattering of our minds? The answer is meditation. We go into our closets and pray as Jesus instructed us to do. We are the closet. We pray in secret (meditation) and God, our father, rewards us openly. I know for many, meditation has a negative stigma attached to it, but that is nonsense. All meditation is is you shutting down your mind so you can connect with your father. Remember, Jesus was born in a manger because there was no room at the INN. The INN is your mind and it is always full of thoughts and chattering. The mind feeds on DUST. Meditation is how we sweep the dust out and stop feeding the mind what it craves. We must make time for God. Meditation is how we tithe. It is giving of ourselves, not our money like religion would have you believe. Jesus said render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar’s and render unto God what is God. We are the image and likeness of God (photon/light). If we never shut the outside world down and go into our closet which is also the temple of God our father, then we never give of ourselves to Him. Instead, we only give of ourselves to our outside reality. I wrote this because it was I felt it important to do so. If what I have shared does not resonate with you that is okay. It will only resonate with you if you are vibrating at the same frequency. Like attracts like. That is why negative people always attract negative things to themselves and positive people always attract positive things to themselves. We draw to ourselves the people and things that are vibrating at the same frequency/level as ourselves. None of these words are mine. I take no credit for ANYTHING that has been revealed to me. It all comes to us from our Father/God. God is all their is. Truth is for those who are ready for it. Those who are not will reject it just as a baby will reject a piece of meat if you put into its mouth to feed it. It wants and needs milk. It must progress through various stages of development before it is ready and hungry for meat. It is the same with our spiritual development. We are all on the same journey, make no mistake about this. But we are all at different points in our journey. The lessons to be learned, the route to travel, and the final destination is the same for all, but each will cross the finish line in their own order. There is no time limit. God is eternal and so are we. We will all make it back home to sit at the right hand of the Father eventually. For those who read this and are ready for these truths, I hope they find you well. For those who read this and are not ready for these truths, do not allow me to be a stumbling block for you. Know we are all one. We are all of the same spirit that permeates all of reality and is all of reality. We are God. We have journeyed from spirit to matter (vibration decreasing) and are now journeying from matter to spirit (vibration increasing). The frozen pond in the cold of winter doesn’t stay frozen forever. In due time, the warmth returns, the water molecules begin to respond and increase their movement and the pond melts and seems to becom alive again. As the energy of the sun increases, the water molecules of that same pond will increase their vibration even more and turn into a gas that ascends back upwards from whence they originally came. These truths have been freely given to me and have now been freely given to you who are ready for them can be seen in nature all around us. One only has to shut all of the other chaos of everyday life our for a while to see them. Jacob, I am sorry this has been such a long post. I hope you don’t mind.
Awesome TJ… I really enjoyed this man, love the insight and time and energy you have put into learning these things… So cool! Love the “Protons” part most. Thanks so much for always adding to the discussion man. Jacob
sleepers……I am digesting this….yawn…dreaming. nice.
I think these are interesting scriptures on who we are. Psalms 82:6, Isaiah 41:23 and John 10:34.
How funny is that Floyd, I was reading Psalms 82 just this morning. By far one of my favorites “arise oh God and inherit the nations” — isn’t it interesting that we are heirs of the nations and all things. Beautiful and amazing are the mysteries of the Kingdom. Peace to you and yours, Jacob
Thank you Jacob… This is glorious truth… just one question…which translation did you use here…just curious… I have so many…this truth though is the cry of my heart,…give me understanding…let me walk in it… Lena >________________________________ > From: JACOB’S LADDER >To: email@example.com >Sent: Wednesday, January 2, 2013 4:33 PM >Subject: [New post] ARE WE GOD? > > WordPress.com >jacobisrael71 posted: ” ARE WE GOD?

Oh Lena… Your words really touched my heart. Thank you for sharing your passion and for lifting my spirits. I am so grateful for people like you who read these essays and write me back. It is such a gift. Peace to you and yours, Jacob
Thanks for another insightful post! I love these posts, and whenever i’m alerted that you posted something new, i rush to go and read it 🙂 I keep being surprised by how different the deeper message of the bible is from what religion has told us all this time.
I agree with pretty much everything you say. God is not something far away outside of us, but the truth of what’s here right now. It is that which IS, the ‘I Am’. There really is nothing but that which is, but for some reason that’s unacceptable for an ego.. lol.
The ego is always trying to get somewhere, to become something, to create stuff in order to find fulfillment. It thinks it’s in control of things.. it wants to be anyway. And in a way that’s really funny.
The ego asks ‘What do i have to do to become one with God?’. That’s kindof like a drop of water asking ‘ what do i have to do to become one with the ocean?’. See how funny that is? It’s the trying to become something that keeps us from being what we are! It takes true faith to drop it all and just fall in the here and now and find the Way, the Truth and the Life. You can’t help being it, but since we keep on running after the carrot of ‘becoming’ we never see it.
It’s so simple and so close that we miss it. There’s nothing you have to do.. nothing you CAN do even. I think you can feel the feeling of liberation and freedom in that! What a relief.. nothing to do! Just drop in being here and now, feel what it is to be here! There’s not even the need to stop the ego, since even that is what it is here and now.. It’s really interesting to notice what happens when you allow everything to be exactly as it is.
Here’s a nice guided meditation where you can put this to practice.. see what it does for you.
Keep up the good work Jacob, and once again thanks for all you wrote 🙂
Peter, thank you so much for taking the time to not just read my essay but to comment with such passion and excitement. It really blows me away at how many are receiving this truth today, years ago this was not the case. The times are changing and I am so grateful for that. While so many think the worst is to come, I only see the best ahead of us all.

Reminds me of a conversation we once had about Adam (subconscious) and Eve (conscious)… I Am who I Am and there is no other like me… this stands true with each one…. this is why it is written “Ye are gods” because this is who we truly are… I am a God among many Gods… always have been always will be… only the illusion of the mind would have someone think less than what we truly are… many believe they are flesh within their minds… they will soon get past this as their true idenity is revieled within themselves… there is so much more to creation to be soon opened within our minds… to think on such petty things as this world will seem to be as dust… we think now we have been given a revelation and that we have been given understanding… I tell you brother the Revelation of who we truly are and where we are is about to be opened in our minds and will be so powerful that words cannot express or described the vastness of all we are and where we are… our true eyes will see the entire picture and the glory of all things will shout with great joy… we will then know the understanding we think we have now will be as dung compared to the Glory that is going to be revealed…. Love Ya Bother Great Work….
this was great gave me a lot to think about but but am happy that you posted it
thanks for getting my new year started on something to seek out
Wow! Good stuff Jacob!
A lot to ponder on. It is true that God, Jesus, His Spirit lives in us. So I suppose it is how we manifest it that determines how we live our lives.
Indeed it is… And I know seeking only leads to finding, one way or another. Hope you are doing amazing. Jacob
I discovered this truth as a small child. I spent years trying to “fit in” so that I did not seem weird or lonesome. This is a wonderful truth to live by.
Jacob, as a small child I knew this to be. My trouble was with me trying to dim Who I AM to fit in with the masses so that I didn’t feel lonely. I did feel lonely among the group. Finally, I decided years ago not to play that game anymore. I am much the better for it. Now when I meet someone, I see the God in them and look to share our experience. Some get it, some don’t and that’s ok.
That is awesome to read J… I know it can be a lonely road at times, but man it is worth it! Thanks so much for sharing here and please continue to do so. Peace Jacob
Oh my goodness Jacob!!! I loved it I have been on this journey for a while and I am glad I am noit the only one~~ Thank-you for being true to yourself and letting us in!!!!! Thank-you my friend!!!!
