Had an interesting idea I have been pondering. There are many definitions of God. What if God is everything, and this everything has an underlying intelligence, an intelligence that we can communicate with. Perhaps Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Moses, etc - through deep contemplation and prayer were able to communicate with this intelligence and what resulted was the many different religions.

The main concept I am getting at, is perhaps all religions are co-created by spiritual masters with this intelligent God energy, based on the cultural beliefs they have developed based on their surroundings and background.

Just thought I would throw this up here ;-)

Hi Gilbert! I like you more and more. I've always had a similar picture of things, I usually think of it as the Universe. Each quark and lepton a function of it's overall thought structure. If it's conscious at all, it's thinking "big thoughts", and probably has no interest (or even awareness) of my individual existence. I imagine that most of what is happening around me is simply the product of certain autonomous functions, with a healthy dose of randomness for spice. Then I wonder this, was our individual consciousness factored in? Do we, as "cells" of this vast being, have any control over our environment? I'm talking about affect beyond the physical - if we're all connected through some medium (as yet undetermined), then certain individuals could produce (apparently literal) miracles.

Your pal, -doc-

1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Thanks for that interesting perspective on explaining miracles. I definitely agree with your logic on this. If you look at the whole of existence that we are aware of, and the common variables that have led to religion, there are only 2 explanations: 1 - what I have postulated, and 2: that they are all crazy and their brain chemicals messed them up. And if you believe 2, then how does that explain the miracles? Which is why I am glad you brought that up.

There are definitely some abilities we have that simply cannot be explained. Some sort of ability to send energy ideas out to effect the world around us. Not that everyone can do this, but there are numerous proven miracles.

I find stillness helps to connect to this Oneness of being.
Like the moon and the stars and the sun.
The whole of nature is "God" to me and I am a part of the whole as we all are.
We see miracles every day.
Listen to the Lark sing.

Teach us, Sprite or Bird,
What sweet thoughts are thine:
I have never heard
Praise of love or wine
That panted forth a flood of rapture so divine
Teach me half the gladness
That thy brain must know,
Such harmonious madness
From my lips would flow
The world should listen then, as I am listening now.

It is strange to be here. The mystery never leaves you alone.
Behind your image, below your words, above your thoughts, the silence of another world waits.
A world lives within you. No one else can bring you news of this inner world.
Through the opening of the mouth, we bring out sounds from the mountain beneath the soul.
These sounds are words. The world is full of words.
There are so many talking all the time, loudly, in rooms, on streets, on television, on radio, in the paper, in books.
The noise of words keeps what we call the world there for us.
We take each other’s sounds and make patterns, predictions, benedictions, and blasphemies.
Each day, our tribe of language holds what we call the world together.
Yet the uttering of the word reveals how each of us relentlessly creates.
Everyone is an artist. Each person brings sound out of silence and coaxes the invisible to become visible.
~ John O'Donohue ~

I still believe in a personal Creator who knows and cares about each of us personally. But it's been so many years since last discussing these things here in this facility. I feel I've grown so much and yet have understood much less than there is. I will say that I think all people who seek deeper answers to our existence will find them.

I feel that, since I have had something quite equivalent to a "NDE", there is something I can add to the thread.

It's been years and it quite warms my heart to read a discussion like this.

The view that we all are cells is correct. However, as above, so below: this phenomenon is a "fractal" of sorts.

This is why Hebraic tradition speaks of a Tree of Life which is both a rendition of the "inner world of man", and of the Cosmos.

This is why "The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed". This is why God tells Moses "I am that I am".

All this alludes to a fractal nature of the Universe, however, a Tree feels all its branches.

When I had encounters with Spirit this was made very clear to me. It was made absolutely clear that EVERYTHING I had ever had inside was known, even things I wasn't aware of.

It was made clear that every tear and every joy had been shared.

And it was made very clear that many of my actions were condemned, but certainly not my existence.
