I wanted to leave this to be the very last post of my blog, when I couldn’t find anything to blog about any longer or wanted to put a nice ending to my blog, years later. But seeing the news articles repeatedly showing an increase in “war on terror” and “terrorization”, I think the world could use a post like this. At this point, I have already attracted those who are stuck in the ancient times of religion. I can only keep going to push the message forwards..
If you ask a muslim WHO or WHAT is Allah, most of them will say that He is something beyond our imagination and concept. While that is true, and I can’t even imagine the brilliant source of energy we all come from in the universe, I think it’s time to explore Allah/God a little deeper.
While watching the 60’s biblical movies this holiday season at home, (my boyfriend loves them, he finds them very calming), I watched with keen observance how God’s voice in all these movies came from a human voice and through the clouds. It gave me an idea that I am willing to share because maybe it will help people stop fighting so much:
What IF God never “spoke” to messengers?
It is not given to any human being that God should speak to him unless (it be) by Inspiration, or from behind a veil, or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise.
What IF God is just this Higher Consciousness of us all, guiding us towards the path of least resistance for life? When I watched Noah humbly look up to the sky as God commanded him to build an ark, it dawned on me that this voice could have come from inside himself as a good person in touch with the universe. Much like how artists get inspired to create a new work of art, or a composer a beautiful piece of music. Even me, when I write my blogs, tap into a higher source than just “me”. Possibly Noah and the others heard a voice that came deep within that vibrates amongst the cosmos. God is our compass that always points “north”, symbolically.
What if Allah is not a single being or deity we are connected to, but is actually the ALL consciousness of all beings in the universe? It’s as if God is the source of all our consciousnesses and we are not God in itself, but we are each an important part of God. Our highest level of awareness knows exactly what to do, who is right and wrong, and what is evil and good. But for some reason in order to experience the life that we are, we have forgotten this. Or not even forgotten, but temporarily stored away deep within us in order to freely live the life we choose. But even though ALL beings in the universe may be part of God, we are either in flow or out of flow with this truth and therefore we suffer or we receive joy. It’s really our choice.
I would say that being in touch and in harmony with ALL beings of the universe could bring about a blissful state. I live it daily because I do train myself to love everyone equally, even my enemies.
God may be that inner voice or conscience inside us all and if we listen with a quiet mind during prayer, and with humility to stop thinking only about ourselves, we can hear the needs of ALL of us in the universe.
In the Quran, there are many special lines that talk about how we are more interconnected than we realize. I believe that Heaven will be the realization that we are all connected and everything works towards the goodness of life. It will be blissful in this state of consciousness because there all beings are acting in truth the GOOD that they are at the core. Hell is separation and division from God, because of a denial and refusal to unite with the all, and with who you are at the core.
…whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
When we all listen to God, worship, and devote our lives to do God’s Will on earth, we in essence are devoting ourselves to all beings and each other. This is not about worship of the Self, this is about worship of the ALL.
All of a sudden wars are no longer needed because then we understand not everyone benefits best from them. We understand murder and mayhem is not needed because both souls involved do not experience peace. The commandments that God gave us in the beginning of times, are not from an outside source. They come from what we ALL know and understand how to make life best for ALL.
We really are many, but One. This is something that so many are forgetting right now. If ISIS only knew that the Allah they wish to make happy was really the mind of humanity crying out. And if Israel knew, and Russia, and China, and America too…we would have peace.
Perhaps it is time to now see God as a glowing ball of beautiful pure energy we would experience as light. And in this glowing ball is all the voices, desires, and goodness of all beings in the universe speaking and thinking at once. When you are still, you can hear what is whispered to be the best evolutionary path for everyone equally in the universe.
