Declaring Myself God might appear "A Bit Much"
I think I'm a good person, and that's all I'm really saying. (the bible says Only God is good)
And I think everybody is basically good, and has the power to create their personal Utopia/Heaven for themselves.
But I realize it seems arrogant, conceited, proud, superior, condescending, pretentious, self-indulgent...
as well as
commonly perceived as a "messiah complex" (i.e. mentally ill)
I actually think my ideas in this blog serve a valuable purpose of bridging the divide between Theists and Atheists, as well as providing common ground for Buddhists, Muslims, Christians, Jews, etc.
I'm just an amateur philosopher, who enjoys thinking about this stuff as a kind of hobby.
And I find it satisfying Being God (!), as a way/example of being in the world. Join the party! Be on the same team, of corporate Goodness, Godco, I am who am, Love, etc.
I still eat meat sometimes, and hate (seriously, it's rough), and consider myself fully human...which I suppose makes me hypocritical.
I'm working on it.
further clarification of what this blog is all about-
Throughout history, and around the world, in many traditions, mystics have sought unity with the divine. For me, being God is not a transcendent experience, but rather a simple fact of everyday existence. All it requires is to Be Good. To be "One with the Universe" is to simply be yourself. Divinity is One's natural state.
