I am God
Morgan Freeman, who played God in the movie Bruce Almighty, has been quoted in interviews as saying "I am God," because he believes God was made by man, not the other way around. God was made in man's image, another way of saying it. I don't speak for him, but I think I know better than most what he means.
Kanye West is rumored to have named his upcoming album "I am God". And he is, too.
1)"God is love"
I love myself
I god myself (self-apotheosis)
2)"only God is good"
I am good
therefore, I am God
(1 and 2 are different ways of saying the same thing, I think)
3)God is a role to play, an identity
(like Santa Claus)
In the song Santa Claus is coming to town, the lyrics say "so be good for goodness' sake""
That's the essence of religion. I.e. "Be Good"
Santa may not exist, but you can change your name, grow a beard, give kids toys, and take on the identity. That's as real as it gets. (Just like vampires may not exist, but if somebody who believes themself to be a vampire kills you, it comes to the same thing).
4)God's name is "I am" (says the old testament)
which can be taken to mean as
a)God exists, or
b)God is existence (all of it),
i.e. reality, the universe, everything.
("Reality is all the God there ever is" -Adi Da Samraj)
("The All" -of which we are only a part- is God)
5) In the phrase, "you gotta look out for number one," 'number one' means yourself.
when the bible says "God is one",
that can be taken to mean God is YOU.
6)You are what you eat (to which I would add, "less what you excrete")
So if you eat God, you become him. You become good.
Which is the basic "mystery" of the christian eucharist.
My name 'Jesse' supposedly means "the whole office of the eucharist"
Don't eat me! (and don't eat my dogs, either, please)
(Did you know Hitler was a vegetarian?)
relevant 'one' quotes:
-If God is one, how can I be evil? -Charles Manson
"We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively"
- a (dead) comedian (forgot his name)
