A Personal Statement Of Belief
God had no beginning.
God has no end.
God is infinite, and is the only Infinity.
God was, is, and will be - eternally, and without cessation.
God is the Source and Creator of all that exists, including time and space itself, and all things that exist in time and space.
Humans are finite, since God created us, and God is the only Infinity.
All of creation is finite, since God created it, and God is the only Infinity.
God exists beyond time and space, since God created time and space.
We are God’s creatures; therefore, we exist within the limits of time and space.
All of creation exists within the limits of time and space, since God created it.
God exists always in the present moment.
With God, there exists only the eternal reality of the “now;” God is ever-present in this “now” moment.
The “past” and the “future” do not exist, since God is ever-present.
The “past” and the “future” are merely products of the human mind’s attempt to understand and define the passage of time; therefore, they are subjective concepts, and their definitions continually change, according to the perceptions of the individuals who imagine them.
The “now” moment is not subjective and never changes, since God exists ever and always in the “now.”
The “now” moment transcends all human understanding and perception, since God exists beyond time and space, and is ever-present in the “now” moment.
Never was there ever a time or place where nothing existed, since God always was, is and will be.
God is omnipresent, and is the all-encompassing Source of all that exists.
God is perfect, and is singular, unique, and distinct in His perfection.
Humans are imperfect, since they are creatures of God, who is the very essence of Perfection Itself.
Though we will never be perfect like God, nonetheless, God desires that we become perfected like Him, since our ultimate destiny is to dwell with God in the absolute and perfect reality of His ineffable creation forever and ever.
God is omniscient; He is the ultimate Perfection of Wisdom, Truth, and Understanding.
God is Perfect Truth.
God is Perfect Wisdom.
God is Perfect Light.
God is Perfect Love.
God is Perfect Mercy.
God is Enlightenment Itself.
The essence of God is Perfect Truth, Perfect Wisdom, Perfect Light, Perfect Love, and Perfect Mercy, since God is the ultimate and ineffable Perfection Itself.
God had no need to create anything, since He is Perfection and a complete and Perfect Entity unto Itself.
God had no need to create another Divinity or Perfection like Himself, though he was eminently capable of doing so, since He is the ultimate Perfection and Source of all Divinity.
God desired that there be creatures to love and to serve Him; therefore, He created us to love and to serve Him, and to glorify and worship Him as The One who is the Source of all our being.
God created all of us, His children, as unique and distinct human persons, and He gave each of us our own unique minds, bodies, personalities, sexual orientations, languages, cultures, and human souls with which to love, serve, and glorify Him, in our own unique and human ways.
If we love unselfishly, therefore, and give of ourselves freely to one another out of love and mutual respect for one another, then God will bless us and give us His Grace, whether we give that love to a man, or to a woman.
Every human soul, every creature, and everything that exists, has been created by God, and He loves everything that He has created infinitely and eternally, precisely because everything He has created is unique, and therefore is beautiful and special in the Thoughts of the Divine Mind.
All of Creation is infused with God’s Perfect Love, imbued with God’s Perfect Light, blessed with His Perfect Mercy, and has its origin in the Perfection of God’s Perfect and Ineffable Wisdom and Truth.
God did not mandate, nor did He desire, that we obey and worship Him blindly and without question as slaves to His Perfect Will, although He had the Power to do so, since His Power, Might and Majesty are unlimited and eternal.
God desires and intends for us as His creatures to dwell with Him in His Perfect Love and Mercy, forever and ever.
We are all brothers and sisters to one another; each of us is but one part of the Great Family of God, and all of us are equally loved by God as His children, without limit and without any equivocation or reservation, forever and ever.
It is our duty as God’s creatures to show love and mercy to one another, since God’s Love and Mercy is infinite, and God desires that we share His Perfect Love and Mercy with every human being on this planet, since we are all brothers and sisters to one another.
It is our duty as God’s creatures to respect all living things, whether they be plant or animal, since God created them for our use and mutual enjoyment, and are the gifts that He gave us because He loves us.
It is our duty as God’s creatures to tend and to care for our planet – the water we drink, the air we breathe, and everything in and on the Earth, since God created these things for our use and mutual enjoyment, and these are the gifts that He gave us because He loves us.
God is forever tender, kind, patient, and forgiving, since He is Perfect Mercy, and since His Love transcends all human understanding, and is unbounded and infinite.
God gave us the gift of freedom of will; to freely choose to love and to serve Him, because He loves us, and desires that we choose to love and to serve Him of our own free will and accord, never demanding our servitude or our obedience to Him, since He is Perfect Love and Mercy.
Like a diamond with many facets, God has manifested and revealed His Presence to us throughout the course of human history.
Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, and Jesus Christ are but a few of the incarnations and manifestations of the One True God; and these incarnations are as unlimited and perfect as God is unlimited and perfect.
God chose to reveal Himself to us in these many and diverse ways, because we all perceive God in our own unique ways, and all of these individual perceptions of God spring forth, and have their inception, in an authentic desire to know, to love, and to serve God according to our own individual and unique perceptions of Him.
God did not desire, nor did he mandate, that all of His creatures worship and serve only one incarnation or manifestation of Him, since He has given us the gift of freedom of will, and since we all understand God in our own unique and distinct ways.
There are many paths that ultimately lead to the One True God, some rocky, others smooth, some crooked and winding, others straight and narrow, some well traveled, and others that have never been traveled upon.
No one path that leads to the One True God is the best, the straightest, and the truest path to God, since we all follow our own individual paths to God, and we are not perfect; therefore, no path to God is perfect.
All religions and belief systems that authentically seek to love and to serve God, and have as their ultimate goal and mission an authentic desire to love and to serve all of God’s creatures, human, animal, and plant, and to respect, tend, and to care for this planet, and all of God’s creation, are inspired by God, and uniquely gifted and blessed by Him, and therefore, must be respected and understood in the light of this Divine Grace.
Since all religions and belief systems are created by humans, they are all inherently flawed in one or many ways, since we do not understand all things as God does, and we therefore cannot claim that our worship of Him is perfect, or ultimately the only and best way to worship our Creator.
God did not desire, nor did He ever demand, that any prophet or messenger sent by Him should die for our sins: to suffer, to shed his blood, and to die for our salvation, because God loves us, and we are always free and able to reconcile with our Creator directly, without the need for any intermediary, intercessor, or personal savior.
We all have the gift of freedom of will, which is the purest manifestation of God’s infinite Grace, and God allows us to choose to love and to serve Him, or to choose not to love and to serve Him, and God permits us to make this choice, because He is forever loving and merciful toward all of His children.
By giving us all such a great gift of freedom of choice, this does not limit or confine the Power and Majesty of God in any way, since He freely gives us this gift as a product of His Divine Grace and Mercy, and out of the Perfect Love in which He made us.
Since God is omnipresent, and is everything and everywhere at all times and in all places, therefore, there is nowhere that is not filled with God’s Perfect Truth, Perfect Wisdom, Perfect Light, Perfect Love, and Perfect Mercy.
Where there is this Truth, Wisdom, Light, Love, and Mercy, there exists also Heaven, which is God Himself, and which is ultimately a state of being in which we experience true Enlightenment, immersed in the Joy and Bliss of being one with the One True God, forever and ever.
Since everywhere and everything is God, and since God is Heaven, and Heaven is God and is of God, therefore, everywhere and everything is Heaven.
If we choose to love and to serve God, and to love and serve our brothers and sisters as children of the One True God, then we will dwell in Heaven, for we will dwell with God, who is Heaven, and we will perpetually experience His Love, Joy, and Mercy, without end, for all eternity.
We as humans do not have to wait to “get to Heaven,” since God is everywhere and everything, in all times and all places, and God is synonymous with Heaven, therefore, if we choose to love and to serve God, and to love and serve our brothers and sisters as children of the One True God, then we will live in a state of eternal Love and Joy, here and now, forever and ever.
Since there is nowhere and nothing that is not filled with the Presence of God, “Hell” does not exist, for there cannot exist anything or anywhere that is not God, and that is not imbued with His Light and His Love.
God does not punish or condemn us for being imperfect, for He knows that we will make mistakes; that is part and parcel of our human condition, and God does not expect us to comprehend all things and be perfect, for only God understands all things, and is the True Perfection of all things.
God is ever ready and ever willing to counsel us, grant us the gift of His infinite Wisdom, and lovingly teach us, His children, His Ways, which are ultimately the Ways of Truth, Light, and Love.
Change, loss, and death, are necessary evils in life, and God uses these painful and unpleasant moments in our lives to challenge us to grow, for otherwise, we would remain as “spiritual infants,” having neither the maturity nor the wisdom that comes with age, and with the experience of pain that is caused by change, loss and death.
God’s Love is so absolute and so infinite, that He will allow us to choose not to love and to serve Him, if we so desire, because He has given us the gift of freedom of will, and God will always give us this gift of freedom of will, unconditionally and without any equivocation whatsoever.
If we choose to love and to serve God, and we choose to love and to serve our brothers and sisters, and not cause them pain or suffering in any way, and we do not abuse the things that were created by God for our enjoyment, then we are doing God’s will, and will ultimately be rewarded by God with true happiness, and we will experience His Love, His Mercy, and His Grace, without end, forever and ever.
If we choose not to love and to serve God, then we will exist in a state of being utterly devoid of His Love, Mercy, and Grace, and we will have created our own “hell,” which is in reality a state of being in which we do not feel the Presence, the Light, and the Love, of our Creator.
Since God is everything and everywhere, therefore, there is no “satan,” or “devil” that is somehow equal to God, yet opposite to God in substance and in character.
Any creature of God, whether it be an angel or a human, that has deliberately and freely chosen not to love and to serve God, is a fallen creature, and exists in its own state of being that is utterly devoid of God’s Light and Love; this is its own self-created “hell.”
We can never demand of God that He forgive us for making a deliberate choice not to love and to serve Him, for that would be presumptuous, and we must ask God humbly and sincerely to be forgiven, and God will forgive us, if we only ask.
There will be consequences for our choosing to do good, and consequences for our choosing to do evil as well, for God is just and fair. Good choices will be rewarded with pleasant consequences, and bad choices will be rewarded with bad consequences. God will exact fair and appropriate recompense from us for all the pain and suffering that we have caused to our fellow human beings, should we selfishly choose to take advantage of them, and mistreat and abuse them.
As the Mother and Womb of all creation, the Goddess will forever be reaching out to Her creatures, ever willing, and ever ready to forgive us of all of our sins, throughout all eternity, for She loves us infinitely and eternally.
Therefore, the meaning of life, our ultimate destiny, our very purpose for existence, is to love and to serve our Creator, to dwell with the Divine source forever, and to seek True Enlightenment, which is the Divine Source itself – Who is ever forgiving, ever merciful, ever truthful, ever faithful, and ever loving, beyond time and space, for all eternity, without end, forever and ever.
