Why All the God Talk? Part 4 of 4: So That’s God, Huh?

[This is the final part of a journal entry that was originally written between October 30th – November 3rd, 1997 (if you’d like to read the entire series, start with Part 1: The Ancient Automobile). You can read what Today Jay has to say about what Yesterday Jay wrote in the Post Script. Enjoy!]

We are all tiny little flecks of one huge consciousness. We can only see one tiny little fleck at a time. These are plain and simple rules, conditions we accept when we choose to experience this space/time experience. What we can influence, and change, is just what little fleck we happen to see,and just how it is that we look at it.

So that is God. Not some stern, omnipotent, punishing father . . . simply a consciousness, or a being, of which we are all a part. God is not male or female, but both . . . without the separation we all deem so necessary simply because it is all we know. Just as humans created books as a convenient learning device, so God created humans; and maleness and femaleness; plants and animals; Heaven and Earth . . . simply as a convenient device for learning and experience.

Through interpretation we can find serenity, or peace. Realize that the things you are hurt or upset by only hurt or upset you because you are programmed to react this way, and you will realize how you are denying yourself your own happiness. And Happiness denied, even for an instant, is the most blasphemous thing you can do… whether you are an atheist or a devoted priest. Continue reading “Interpreting Forgiveness”

The Silent Observer, Part III: The Observer In Action

[This journal entry was originally written by Jay on October 22nd, 1997. As always, you can read what Jay thinks about this subject now in the post script – Dawn]

Imagine being that silent witness. Imagine seeing everything you see as if for the first time, not through screens of interpretation. Imagine being free from the pain of the past and the fear of the future. Imagine being someone who never manipulated on any level, and could not be manipulated on any level. Imagine pure Awareness. It’s always there, waiting to be discovered, waiting to be tapped. Continue reading “The Silent Observer, Part III: The Observer In Action”

The Realization of Interpretation

[This journal entry was originally written on October 22nd, 1997. As always, Jay’s current thoughts on this entry are in the post script – Dawn]

Everything we think, everything we feel, everything we see, everything we say, everything we do; is all a product of interpretation. The life you are living, the thoughts you are thinking, the emotions you are feeling are all interpretations. The way we interpret the world becomes our world. The way we interpret others’ actions determines how we react. The key to finding Happiness is hidden in interpretation.

We learn ways of interpreting and dealing with the world, and that becomes our world. The world “out there” is completely different for you than it is for me, yet it is the same world. The world is divinely indifferent. Nothing dies, nothing is born, nothing ever happens that is good or bad. It simply is. What we see with our individual eyes is not in the least bit objective. It is before it hits our eyes, but we cannot look at it objectively. We see it through years of experience which has turned into the interpretation of the moment. Your whole life is packed into your every glance. Continue reading “The Realization of Interpretation”
