God is the totality of everything, and as such is everywhere. That makes all of us a part of God.
We are part of God's creation.
God created us with exactly the same qualities as Himself (See note 1.)
God is Love, We are Love
God is Light, We are Light
God is Life, We are Life
God is Peace, We are Peace
God is Joy, We are Joy
God is Truth, We are Truth
God is Power, We are Power
God is Strength, We are Strength
God is Free, We are Free
God is Safe, We are Safe
God is Open, We are Open
God is Holy, We are Holy
God is... We are...
This is the only Real State. It is timeless, spaceless, eternal.
We believe we are separate, and have based everything on the perception, or extended perception, of our senses. This belief I call ego. Ego is an illusion made up of illusions. With our egos we take this timeless, spaceless, eternal creation and make something of it - lots of things, lots of separate things, that appear to be happening outside ourselves.
They appear to be happening in a time sequence from beginning to end. But it is all illusion. God's qualities are all there is, and when we realise this, all the illusions just disappear. They never were.
It depends on our perspective
- Ego-based - what we see as the world, the universe and all their apparent history.
- God-based - all is ours. We are all.
So the exceptionally brief, simple history is
- We separated ourselves from God.
- We realised that we were separate.
- We returned to Oneness with God, the Source of all Creation.
