The first step to knowing “God” a.k.a Universe; is to know the self. Without a clear understanding and realization of the self, we can not know of the other two. The God Self is our “higher self”.
Through self-knowledge you begin to find out what is God, what is truth, and what is that state which is timeless. In self-knowledge is the whole universe; it embraces all the struggles of humanity.
If you want to pray, pray to your higher self.
If you want to worship, worship the divinity that exists within you.
Realize that you are your own God, and that we are all part of the same universe. We are all one. Therefore we are all divine beings. Drop the religious dogmas and start believing in YOURSELF.
“Divine love makes us true to ourselves and to others. . . Divine love is the solution to our difficulties and problems. It frees us from every kind of binding. It makes us speak truly, think truly, and act truly. It makes us feel one with the whole universe. Divine love purifies our hearts and glorifies our being.” ― Meher Baba
As I have learned from my David Icke readings… Infinite, unconditional love is the only truth. Do you feel the same way about “God” and the Universe?
