One of the questions I am asked by people such as yourself--people who are genuinely embarking on a spiritual path--is: How can I be God-like? What is it like to be Divine? I'm going to answer that question today, with what God told me. You see, I asked Her the same question. And fortunately for all of us, He answered.
Divinity, God said, seeks nothing for Itself. Human beings will find it difficult to seek nothing for themselves so long as they imagine themselves to be human. That is because humans imagine themselves to have needs. Divinity does not. Divinity has no such thought about Itself. (Nor any such thought about you, either.)
So in order for Humanity to seek nothing for itself, humans must understand themselves to be Divine. They must understand that Humanity is not separate from the Divine, but IS divided from the Divine. This sometimes helps people wrap their minds around the concept of our Oneness with Divinity.
Many folks have a very difficult time seeing themselves as Divine. Yet if you tell them that they are part of that which is Divine, many people can go there. They can hang out in that place. They can embrace the concept. Partial magnificence is acceptable, total magnificence is not.
So we might say, for our purposes here, that Humanity is a Division of the Divine. That Which Is Divine created many divisions of Itself, and one of those divisions is called Humanity.
Even as a large company or corporation may have a division here and a division there without any of those divisions being in any sense separate from, or other than, the whole, so, too, does the Divine have a division here and a division there without any of those divisions being in any sense separate from, or other than, The Whole.
It is possible to be a division of something without being separated from it. That's an important concept for you to grasp if you are to have the Holy Experience. Please let me say it again. I said...
"It is possible to be a division of something without being separated from it." Think about that for a minute. Hold that concept in your mind.
Humanity, as a Division of Divinity, is neither separate from, nor other than, The Whole.
This is the one thing that most of Humanity has not understood. This is the one thing that most of Humanity's religions have not taught. In fact, most of those religions have taught exactly the opposite. They have taught that Humanity IS Separate from Divinity.
Some have called this separation The Fall of Man, and in that description they are correct. The idea of Humanity's separation from Divinity has been humanity's downfall.
