Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”
The Gospel of Thomas, Verse 3 (Lambdin Translation)
One morning, while driving to work, a question came to me:
What would it feel like to be God?
I mean, what would it feel like if I were God-the Divine, the ALL, the Mystery, the Universe, the Void, etc. Really, what would it feel like?
I believe it’s a question we all have at one time or another-be you Christian or otherwise. What would it be like to be the “Almighty”.
The more I meditated on that question, the more my Core Values came to mind (from January 2012). I would be transcendent in my view of life, taking both the long-term yet immediate view. I would create as well as change things. I would allow the Divine Erotic Primal power to flow in and through me. I’d be an explorer in all areas of my life. I’d be mysterious and mystical. I would see the abundant on life. Live would be a celebration to dance to. I’d be open and transparent. I would celebrate healthy and nourishing sexuality. I would encourage the enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures. I would inspire and encourage adventure.,,
Come to think of it, I’d be myself-already made in God’s image!
We’re so busy pining over being “full of the devil” we forget to realize that we’re really full of God! We forget what Jesus reminded us that we have the Kingdom of God in us. All we have to do is know ourselves; become intimate with ourselves.
I know it may sound heretical, however it’s something to think about!
