I see that it is necessary (for oh so brief a moment) to skip ahead to a MUCH HIGHER LEVEL!
I’m writing this and expending my precious energy for one of my readers – and regular comment posters – SAVE TO WIN…, as a way to bring clarity to certain issues he has brought up.
WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE “TRUTH” IN EXPERIENCE – CAN NEVER BE CONVEYED SIMPLY BY WORDS…
All Religious doctrine and theory aside…, whether it’s Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu…, no words can come close to REAL EXPERIENCE!
I have been (out of necessity) writing most of my blog (which is a Life/Spiritual/Teaching blog) at the first or second grade level since I began.
I do this because this is where MOST of my readers are.
I have (at times) “skipped” forward to the fifth and sixth grade levels, only to make a certain point…, before coming back down to the first and second grade level again.
Being a “good teacher”…., I can NOT move any faster than my readers can learn.
You wrote in the comment section that you prefer to think of the Creator as “Brahma” and the TRUTH, as “Shiva”.
You are on the “wrong” track…, and I’m only being honest!
Once again…, these are mere words…, and in the ultimate reality they have no bearing on what is formless!
Even ideas themselves (like everything else) will pass away when they come into the DIRECT PATHWAY of the CREATOR.
Before that happens…, “words” and “ideas” and “thoughts” (EVEN NAMES) are all FORMS which try to describe something which is formless and can NOT be limited into a finite box.
The very moment a particular being (any being) claims to be “A GOD”…, that being has proven to be a FAKE simply by claiming it.
For the TRUE GOD can not be “described” through the use of a mere word.
This is why I prefer to address the Infinite as: PRIME CREATOR!
(Instead of using the word: GOD)
Creator (as a definition) is pure truth in that anything that lives and breaths (on any level) came into it’s existence as a result of FIRST CAUSE!
Prime (as a definition) relates to the position on the scale of when/how/where it all began. PRIME means “first” again.
So thus, PRIME CREATOR literally means: The very FIRST- FIRST CAUSE!
One can not get any more CLEAR or PRECISE than this, and so this is the best description (in words) for GOD!
There are many countless Astral and Cosmic beings (the Hindu’s could name hundreds) who lay claim to “BEING A GOD”…, but what they really mean to say is that these beings are “gods”…, (small “g” thank you very much).
OR…, from my point of view…, they are more refined beings (who live on another level) who wish to give themselves “important” sounding names.
Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva are “gods”…, because they are “parts” of the whole – and do not carry the full understanding OF THE WHOLE.
NO ONE WHO LIVES AND BREATHS CAN DESCRIBE IN WORDS (USING SOUNDS) WHAT THE WHOLE REALLY IS…, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE!
For words are very limited, and so are thoughts, and so are ideas, and so are NAMES!
This is why all Religions fail in the End.
SAVE TO WIN…, I appreciate your attempt in trying to learn about and “describe” GOD…,
My friend…, this is NOT POSSIBLE!
If you wish to KNOW GOD…, then EXPERIENCE GOD…, ONCE YOU DO…, YOU WILL REALIZE THERE IS NO WAY TO DESCRIBE GOD!
All my love….
