What is God? What is Reality? Last night I went for a simple cruise with a good friend. We had no destination in particular, just driving around and discussing random things from our personal lives down to our philosophical views which eventually lead to a discussion about the nature of God and of reality.
Remembering a documentary I once saw called What The Bleep Do We Know, I remember the quantum physicists suggesting that everything is possible, and the only thing that limits us is our way of thinking. The bottom line is, that we can do absolutely anything and everything if we believe that we can one hundred percent. In short, we are gods. We can be gods if we let go of our doubts. We have the power of God. We can be God.
The documentary also claims that instead of reality influencing us, we are actually the ones influencing reality. That instead of seeing something “real” such as a rock, we actually make that rock come into existence. It’s not real until we believe it to be real. If they are correct, then nothing is real. We have this “reality” simply because we all agreed that this is our reality and everything real only exists because we made it exist.
It seriously made me think that maybe the “crazy people” I’ve once met at a mental health institution who live in their own little worlds may not actually be crazy, but are just tuned in on a different reality from ours. If I remember our orientation correctly, they really see who they claim to see, feel what they claim to feel, and experience what they claim to experience. Have they achieved godhood and are we actually the sick ones?
Discussing this same thing to my friend, he asked: “Given that you are right and that everything came into existence because of us, then what made us come into existence?” That is where we agreed that God comes into place. God may be the very first consciousness that brought everything else into existence. Everything plays by the rules God made up. God exists. God truly exists. That is what we both agreed upon.
Personally, I agree with the quantum physicists that we can do everything, that we are capable of everything. So what is stopping us from making everything possible? For that I have two theories: One, would be that since we aren’t God, the “original consciousness,” we are unable to go against the rules God defined. Since God has limited our abilities, there is nothing we can do beyond those limits.
The second theory is that maybe God did not put any limits, but reality is the product of the collective, meaning that all beings that have consciousness together create this single reality that we are in. Simply put, I can fly, I can move objects with my mind or even create things out of nothing if I wanted to, but it won’t happen simply because everything else believes that it’s not possible.
In short, we limit ourselves and each other. If everything, and I mean everything that has consciousness would agree to one reality, that reality will come to existence. For example if we all agree, believe, and want to turn the Statue of Liberty into a solid statue made of pure gold, it will turn into pure gold. Interesting concept isn’t it?
It’s been a long time since I have posted anything mind-stimulating and I hope this one truly made you think. Does reality influence us, or are we the ones influencing reality? Are we simply under God, or are we gods just waiting to be set free from our limiters?
