Statistisches zu GOTT

Eine EMNID-Umfrage von 1996 ergab, dass nur noch 45 % der Deutschen "an Gott glauben", die übrigen sahen sich als Agnostiker ("weiß es nicht") oder Atheisten ("glaube nicht an Gott"). 1992 waren noch 50% der Westdeutschen gottgläubig gewesen. Dies sind abweichende Daten von den statistischen Erhebungen des Internationalen Bundes der Konfessionslosen und Atheisten (IBKA) zur Konfessionszugehörigkeit in Deutschland 1970-2002.

 

Nach einer im März 2009 veröffentlichten repräsentativen Umfrage unter 54.461 Amerikanern sahen sich 76 Prozent des US-Bürger als Christen ein. 15 Prozent bezeichneten sich als Nichtgläubige.
1990 waren es 86 Prozent Christen und 8,2 Prozent Nichtgläubige.

Aussagen zu GOTT


Umberto Menin (*1949) italienischer Maler

GOTT, der Schöpfer, der sich in der evoluierenden Schöpfung ausdrückt, ist eine absolute Konstante, unveränderlich-veränderlich. Die menschliche Erfahrung der An-Wesenheit Gottes ist in allen Zeitaltern, kulturellen Gegebenheiten und an allen Orten gleichbleibend.

 

In Das All-sehende Auge, Kapitel 10 Die Natur GOTTES und in Buch 3, 23 Aussagen über GOTT sind direkte, klare Aussagen über GOTT zu finden, deren Trefflichkeit jeweils mit Gruppen von cirka 100 kinesiologischen Testpaaren bestätigt (nachgemessen) wurde.

 

GOTT ist selbst-offenbarend und jenseits aller Form, jedoch allgegenwärtig und in jeder Form enthalten. GOTT ist Schweigen, Stille, Heiterkeit, Friede, bewegungslos, allumfassend, überall anwesend, allwissend, da er ALLES ist, WAS IST. Hawkins, Das All-sehende Auge, S. 231, 2005

 

Einer der schnellsten Wege zu Gott ist, einem plötzlichen Tod ins Auge zu sehen. Fast alle Überlebenden von Katastrophen berichten, dass sie gebetet haben.

One of the quickest ways to God is to face sudden death. Survivors of catastrophes will almost always say that they prayed. Sedona Seminar Transcending Obstacles, 3 DVD-Set, 3. September 2005

Gottesbilder und damit einhergehende Bewusstseinsebenen – D. Hawkins

Gott ist transzendent-immanent, ein Paradox für den gespaltenen Verstand.
Im Laufe der Evolution verschieben sich die projizierten Gottesbilder der Menschen.
Gottesbilder drücken aus, welche Art von Zugang dem Menschen zum SELBST, zu Allem-was-ist, zur Verfügung steht.

 

Die Gottesbilder stammen aus dem Selbstverständnis des Ids, des Ego, des Selbstes oder SELBSTes.
Sie sind repräsentativ für unterschiedliche Stufen der Evolution:

Aussagen, was GOTT ist

Hawkins sagt, dass es von großer Bedeutung ist, zu wissen, was GOTT nicht ist, da in der Menschheitsgeschichte Völker und Nationen infolge von unzutreffenden Gottesbildern in die Irre geführt oder gar ausgelöscht worden sind. Laut Hawkins ist das kinesiologiche Testen von Wahrheitsebenen ein wertvolles Werkzeug zur Unterscheidung (der Geister).

 

GOTT ist nicht koabhängig oder neurotisch und leidet nicht unter einer paranoiden Psychose von Größenwahn.1

 

  • GOTT ist überall anwesend, total und absolut vollständig.
  • GOTT steht mit seiner Gegenwart jedem zu jeder Zeit zur Verfügung.
  • GOTT ist jenseits von Wahrnehmung, Dualität und Gegensätzen wie gut und böse, richtig oder falsch.
  • GOTT ist manifest als Gesamtheit und Allheit der Schöpfung und zugleich unmanifest als die Gottheit, das UNENDLICHE POTENTIAL und die Quelle der "Leerheit" vor der Form.
  • GOTT ist unendlich.
  • GOTT ist jenseits von Zeit und Darstellungen von Raum und Örtlichkeiten, ohne Anfang oder Ende.
  • GOTT ist allgegenwärtig, allmächtig und allwissend.
  • GOTT ist die Quelle und das Substrat des Bewusstseins, des Gewahrseins, des Wissens und der Empfindung.
  • GOTT ist die einzige Quelle der Lebensenergie.
  • GOTT ist die Quelle der Evolution und Schöpfung, die beide identisch sind.
  • GOTT ist die Quelle und die Gegenwart von Frieden, Liebe, Stille und Schönheit.
  • GOTT ist die Quelle der Existenz und die Möglichkeit des Seins.
  • GOTT ist der endgültige Kontext, dessen Inhalt das Universum und alles Existierende ist.
  • GOTT ist von vornherein die formlose Quelle der Existenz innerhalb aller Formen.
  • GOTT ist die Quelle und Essenz des subjektiven Zustandes der "Ichheit", die Erleuchtung genannt wird.
  • GOTT ist die radikale Subjektivität der Selbst-Verwirklichung.
  • GOTT ist immanent und transzendent erkennbar.
  • Die Erfahrung der Gegenwart GOTTES ist zu allen Zeitaltern, in allen Kulturen und an allen Orten die gleiche.
  • Die Wirkung der Erfahrung der Gegenwart GOTTES auf das menschliche Bewusstsein ist subjektiv umwandelnd und gleichbleibend im Verlauf der menschlichen Geschichte. Sie hinterlässt ein zeitloses Zeichen, das nachweisbar ist als Messwert einer aufgezeichneten Bewusstseinsebene.
  • Die Reinheit der Gegenwart GOTTES ist traditionsgemäß die Essenz der unfassbaren Eigenschaft des Heiligen und die Basis des Wortes "heilig". Das Inhaltslose entspricht der Arglosigkeit.
  • Wenn die Hindernisse menschlicher Gedankenprozesse und Gefühlsprozessee und der Egostrukturen, aus denen sie hervorgehen, überwunden sind, erstrahlt das SELBST des immanenten GOTTES aus sich heraus, so wie die Sonne scheint, sobald die Wolken aufgelöst sind.
  • GOTT ist der Kontext und die Quelle der karmischen Einheit der ganzen Schöpfung jenseits aller wahrnehmungsbedingten Beschreibungen oder Begrenzungen wie Zeit oder Raum.
  • Wahrheit ist nur nachvollziehbar, indem man identisch mit ihr ist, nicht, indem man etwas über sie weiß.

Aussagen, was GOTT nicht ist

  • Die Existenz GOTTES beinhaltet keine menschliche Schwächen wie Parteilichkeit, Wunsch nach Kontrolle, Günstlingswirtschaft, Dualität, Abwertung, Wut, gerechten Zorn, Groll, Begrenztheit, Willkür, Eitelkeit, Rache, Eifersucht, Vergeltungssucht, Verletzlichkeit oder Ortsgebundenheit.
  • GOTT ist nicht rachsüchtig, zornig, strafend, neidisch, eifersüchtig.
  • GOTT ist überall, nicht auf einen Ort oder auf einen entfernten Himmel zu beschränken.
  • GOTT lässt sich nicht teilen.
  • GOTT behält seine Liebe nicht bestimmten Menschen vor.
  • GOTT ist nicht auf Streicheleinheiten oder Komplimente angewiesen.
  • GOTT ist nicht anfällig für emotionale Verstimmung.
  • GOTT kann nicht manipuliert werden.
  • GOTT hat keine Bedürfnisse oder Wünsche.
  • GOTT ist nicht traurig, wenn man nicht an ihn glaubt.
  • GOTT ist nicht mit Ratio und Intellekt zu beweisen.
  • Die Vielfalt der Darstellungen des Göttlichen spiegelt die Vielfalt der menschlichen Wahrnehmung wider und die Übertragungen der durch das Ego verzerrten Perspektiven.

Neurobiologischer Gottesnachweis

Aus der auffälligen Inaktivierung des Orientierungs-Assoziations-Areals (OAA), die während der Meditation zu beobachten ist, hat Dr. Andrew Newberg den Schluss gezogen, dass im Moment höchster religiöser Versenkung die Grenze zwischen Ich und Welt verschwindet und der natürliche Bezug zu Raum und Zeit verloren geht. Damit scheint die neuronale Basis für jene inneren Erlebnisse identifiziert, von denen die Mystiker unterschiedlichster religiöser Traditionen berichten: ozeanische Gefühle der Versenkung, Entgrenzung und Aufhebung des Ichs und des eigenen Körpers, Erfahrungen der Einheit mit einer größeren, umfassenden Wirklichkeit. Alle diese Erlebnisse erscheinen nun verständlich und erklärbar als Resultat einer durch Meditation selbst induzierten Deaktivierung des Orientierungsfeldes im posterioren superioren Parietallappens. Der Beweis scheint erbracht, dass es sich bei mystischen Erlebnissen nicht um Halluzinationen, sondern um biologisch nachweisbare Tatsachen handelt.

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 10 Reality of Divinity, 23 Statements on God, S. 163-164, 2003

 

 

  • The absolute truth of these statements about the Reality of Divinity was publicly corroborated on July 13, 2002, before an audience of over two hundred people during a public lecture. The audience divided into one hundred kinesiologic teams. The truth of each statement was then tested by the whole audience simultaneously. The confirmation of each statement was one hundred percent (calibrated level 1,000), and the procedure was videotaped. The purpose was to present credible documentation of Truth in today's world. I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 10 Reality of Divinity, 23 Statements on God, S. 163, 2003

 

  • 10. God is the ultimate context of which the universe and all existence is the content. I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 10 Reality of Divinity, 23 Statements on God, S. 163, 2003

 

  • God is the context and source of the karmic unity of all Creation, beyond all perceptual descriptions or limitations, such as time or space. I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 10 Reality of Divinity, 23 Statements on God, S. 164, 2003

 

  • 20. The purity of the Presence of God is traditionally the essence of the ineffable quality of holiness and is the basis for the descriptive term 'sacred'. That which is devoid of content is the equivalent of Innocence. I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 10 Reality of Divinity, 23 Statements on God, S. 164, 2003

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • The human experience of the Presence of God is the same in all ages, all cultures and all localities. Source unknown

 

  • It is the heart that is at one with God, not the mind. To discover one's own heart is to discover God. Source unknown

 

  • The experience of the presence of God is available and within at all times, but awaits choice. That choice is made only by surrendering everything other than peace and love to God. In return, the divinity of the Self reveals Itself as ever present but not experienced because it has been ignored or forgotten, or one has chosen otherwise. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 48, 2001

 

  • Like springtime, the promise of a new era in man's understanding of God is emerging. Now the level of consciousness of mankind is high enough to be able to recognize the truth of a God of Love instead of worshiping the god of guilt and hate. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 76, 2001

 

  • The true destiny of man is to realize the truth of the divinity of one’s source and creator which is ever present within that which has been created and is the creator – the Self. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 6, S. 87, 2001

 

  • To understand the nature of God, it is necessary only to know the nature of love itself. To truly know love is to know and understand God; and to know God is to understand love. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 6, S. 88, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

 

  • The radiance of God is the light of awareness that reveals the divinity of all that exists. In the stillness of the Infinite Presence, the mind is silent as there is nothing that can be said; all speaks of itself with completeness and exactitude. With this realization one transcends the final duality of existence versus nonexistence because only existence is possible. The opposite of Truth does not exist because Reality excludes non-reality. In this realization resides the peace of God. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 118, 2001

Reality of God

  • God does not direct floods, conflagrations, earthquakes, volcanoes, storms, lightning or rainfalls. These are impersonal effects of conditions within the physical world and its universe. God does not get mad and "trash out" cities, civilizations, towns, or ethnic groups. All these things occurred on the planet before there were any living societies. God does not get involved in human conflicts, political and religious struggles, or strife. God has no interest in war's battlefields. He has no enemies that need to be slain.
    Infidels, believers or the like are all positionalities of the human ego. Even sensible humans are beyond such smallness of mind and its judgementalism. God doesn't "care" whether one believes in "Him" or not; however, the consequences will be quite different.
    Love gravitates towards heaven and hate sinks into the other direction. Goodness rejects no one. Like goes to like; love is attracted to love. God takes no actions against anything or anyone. Some souls are attracted by light and others by darkness. The selection is from within the ego and not imposed from without. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 156, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

 

  • God is self-revealing and beyond all form, yet present and innate within all form. God is silence, still, serene, peaceful, unmoving, all-inclusive, everywhere present, all-knowing by virtue of being All That Is. God is total, complete, quiescent, loving, beyond time and space, without parts or partitions, nondualistic, and equally present in All That Is, not different from the Self. Only existence is possible. Despite translation errors and misunderstanding, God is not nothingness or void. Nonexistence, as one can see by its own self-definition, is not a possibility. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 10 The Nature of God, S. 211, 2001; S. 157, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002

 

  • God is All That Is – without any exclusion – sight, sound, space, objects, form, formless, visible, invisible, solid, liquid, without dimension or location, and everywhere equal. There is no opposite to God. God is both Allness and voidness, equally form and nonform. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 194, 2001

 

  • 1. God is both manifest as the Totality and Allness of Creation and simultaneously unmanifest as the Godhead, the Infinite Potentiality and source or 'void-ness' prior to form. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing Is Hidden, chapter 10 The Nature of God, 1 of 23 verifiable statements, S. ?, 2001

 

  • There is absolutely nothing in ordinary human experience to compare with the joy of the presence of the Love of God. No sacrifice is too great nor effort too much in order to realize that Presence. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 289, 2001

 

  • The effect on human consciousness of the experience of the Presence of God is subjectively transformative and identical throughout human history. It leaves a timeless mark that is verifiable as a calibration of a recorded level of consciousness. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. ?, 2003

 

  1. God is the absolute subjectivity that underlies existence and the capacity for awareness.
  2. God is beyond all time, place, or human characteristics.
  3. All the descriptions of the Ultimate Reality by enlightened beings throughout history have been identical.
  4. There is only one Supreme Reality. I. Reality and Subjectivity, paragraph 2, S. 3, 2003

 

(↓)

God Immanent

  • The Absolute Reality of the Self is the manifestation of God as the very core of one's existence. The love of the Presence is ultrapersonal and experienced as infinite peace, infinite security, and the safety of foreverness so that there is no imaginary 'end' to fear.
    The God of the Presence imbues the joy of completion. Love is not a ‘quality' of God but is God's very essence. There is no sense of 'otherness' to the Presence. I. Reality and Subjectivity, paragraph 1, S. 4, 2003

 

(↓)

God Transcendent

  • Unlike the Earth's son, the Sunship of God is permanent. To the Infinite, the comings and goings of universes have no meaning. That which is the Source of life is not subject to it. I. Reality and Subjectivity, paragraph 2, S. 5, 2003

 

(↓)

God Immanent

  • When the obstacles of human mentation, emotionality and the ego's structures from which they are derived are transcended, the Self as God immanent shines forth of its own accord, just as the sun shines forth when the clouds are removed. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 16, 2003

 

(↓)

God Immanent

  • Even with logic, it is obvious that a transcendent God would also have to be immanent as well or else God would be characterized as limited. This would result in a ridiculous depiction that God is everywhere in the universe except in man so that each man would be like a hole in the totality of the Universe. This would be like depicting the omnipresence of God as a block of Swiss cheese, with mankind living in the holes. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 87, 2003

 

  • God is beyond perception, duality, positionality, or having parts. God is beyond all opposites, such as good and bad, right and wrong, win and lose. Like the sun, God shines equally on all. God's love is not reserved for the favored few, but it does shine through the clouds via the love we experience with others, including even pets and nature. The degree to which one experiences the presence of God's love varies markedly from one person to another, depending on one's level of consciousness. I. Reality and Subjectivity, chapter 10 Reality of Divinity, 23 Statements on God, S. ~164, 2003

 

  • Neither God nor Truth can be found within the limitation of content only for, by simple observation, content is only definition or description whereas context supplies meaning, significance, and concordance with the reality of existence itself. This is important to comprehend not only in spiritual work but also in everyday social and political policies. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 221, 2003

 

  • Be passionate for God, not for belief systems. That is the only real decision that has to be made and can be applied to any and all situations. The question is always whether to be at the effect of the world or aligned with the Truth of God instead. The search for enlightenment is different from that of seeking worldly success. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 355, 2003

  • In contrast to the ego's perception of God, the Absolute Reality of the Self is the manifestation of God as the very core of one's existence. The love of the Presence is ultrapersonal and experienced as infinite peace, infinite security, and the safety of foreverness so that there is no imaginary "end" to fear. The God of the Presence imbues the joy of completion. Love is not a "quality" of God but is God's very essence. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. Contemplations from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., edited by Scott Jeffrey, chapter ?, S. 136, 2nd quote, Hay House, August 2011

 


 

  • The collective power of the Divinity within each and every one of us, expressed as Love, will have a profound influence. That is for certain. To deny it is to deny your own reality. It is to say 'I am only a weak ego and I have no influence in this world. I am just a nothing. I am just a toad.' No, that is not so. Each one of us here reflects the divinity of God. […] the joy of one's existence is the joy of this awareness.

Politizisation of God

  • When you are seeking enlightenment you have to forgo the luxury of constantly commenting on life, [...] the wronging and righting of the mind, trying to decide whether God is a liberal or a conservative. […]
    We asked, "Is God a liberal?" We calibrated, "No, He is not."
    The Buddha said, "Wisdom is the Middle Way."
    Sedona Seminar Enlightenment, lecture 4, Poco Diablo Resort, DVD 1 of 3, minute 8:52 and 15:52, August 2003

 

  • Question: How do I return to GOD?
    Answer: You have to wait until conditions are right. An archangel does not get to LoC 60,000 by skipping lifetimes. Your lifetime is not wasted. It takes time to be at peace and still let the persona interact with the world. You are complete and whole inside, and at the same time gathering information. Sedona Satsang Q&A, 2 CD set, 10. January 2007

 

  • If you look at God as Great Father or Great Mother, then S/He would delight in your enlightenment. God experiencing the joy of His own Divinity is both the pathway and the destination, both the traveller and the destination. Sedona Satsang Q&A, CD 2 von 2, 10. January 2007

 

  • All things are God. Everything is God. All is God. There is nothing but God. Period. [...] When you look for God, that's all there is. So then it dawns on you one day, when you´re looking at things [...] the essence of Divinity shines forth. Sedona Seminar Practical Spirituality, 3 DVD set, 25. October 2008

The voice of God speaks with certainty.

  • Question: How do you recognize the voice of God?
    Answer: If you question it, it’s not the voice of God because the voice of God is self-reflecting as the voice of God. It comes by certainty. All of a sudden it’s simple and obvious. Prescott Seminar Peace [LoC 565] 3 DVD set, 8. August 2009

Zitate von Meister Eckhart

 

 

 

  • Sobald Gott dich bereit findet, muss er in dein Wesen einströmen, geradeso wie der Sonnenschein sich auf die Erde ergießen muss, wenn die Luft klar und rein ist. Sehnendes Verlangen schafft Liebe, und Liebe überwindet alle Hindernisse. Meister Eckhart (Eckhart von Hochheim) [BW 705] (1260-1328) deutscher Mystiker, dominikanischer Theologe, Philosoph

 

  • Dass wir Gott nicht zwingen, wozu wir wollen, das liegt daran, dass uns zwei Dinge fehlen: Demut vom Grund des Herzens und kräftiges Begehren. Ich sage das bei meinem Leben – Gott vermag in seiner göttlichen Kraft alle Dinge, aber das vermag er nicht, dass er dem Menschen, der diese zwei Dinge in sich hat, nicht Gewährung schenke. Meister Eckhart (Eckhart von Hochheim) [BW 705] (1260-1328) deutscher Mystiker, dominikanischer Theologe, Philosoph

 

  • Wenn wir für das Wort Gott durch das Wort Wesen ersetzen, sehen und merken wir alle wohl, dass in allen Dingen Wesen ist. Wenn also Gott das eigentliche Wesen ist, so muss darum notwendigerweise Gott in allen Dingen sein. Meister Eckhart (Eckhart von Hochheim) [BW 705] (1260-1328) deutscher Mystiker, dominikanischer Theologe, Philosoph

 

Zitate von anderen Quellen

Wir wissen aber, dass denen, die Gott lieben, alle Dinge zum Besten dienen, denen, die nach seinem Ratschluss berufen sind. Paulus, Römer 8, 28 (NT)

 

[W]ir sind nun Gottes Kinder; und es ist noch nicht erschienen, was wir sein werden. Wir wissen aber, wenn es erscheinen wird, dass wir ihm gleich sein werden; denn wir werden ihn sehen, wie er ist. Und ein jeglicher, der solche Hoffnung hat zu ihm, der reinigt sich, gleichwie er auch rein ist. 1. Johannes 3, 2-3 (NT)

 

Denn Gottes unsichtbares Wesen, das ist seine ewige Kraft und Gottheit, wird ersehen seit der Schöpfung der Welt und wahrgenommen an seinen Werken, so dass sie keine Entschuldigung haben. Paulus, Römer 1, 20 (NT)

Albert Einstein [BW 499] (1879-1955) deutschstämmiger US-amerikanischer theoretischer Physiker, Entwickler der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, Nobelpreisträger in Physik

 

Nihilismus

  • Gott ist eine vom Menschen erdachte Hypothese bei dem Versuch, mit dem Problem der Existenz fertigzuwerden.   Sir Julian Huxley (1887-1975) englischer Evolutionsbiologe, Eugeniker, Internationalist, Transhumanist, erster Direktor von UNESCO (1946-1948), Gründungsmitglied von World Wildlife Fund, Schriftsteller, Motto des "Atheismus im Namen der Vernunft"

 

Empfehlungen

  • Denn Gott kann wohl geliebt, aber nicht gedacht werden. Von der Liebe lässt er sich fassen und halten, vom Intellekt jedoch nicht. Unbekannt, Unbekannt, Die Wolke des Nichtwissens [BW 705] englische mystische Schrift, 1390, Hrsg. Wolfgang Riehle, Einsiedeln, 1999

 

  • Zur 'Gotteswelt' gehörte alles 'Übermenschliche', blendendes Licht, Finsternis des Abgrunds, die kalte Apathie des Grenzenlosen in Zeit und Raum und das unheimlich Groteske der irrationalen Zufallswelt. 'Gott' war für mich alles, nur nicht erbaulich.

Bildliche Darstellung von Gottvater
  • Die mythologischen Götter und Göttinnen sind Projektionen, Spiegelungen des Kollektivs, Entsprechungen, die in Resonanz mit den Menschen sind, die sie anrufen und anbeten! Es gibt sie, weil man will, dass es sie gibt. Interview mit Mario Mantese mariomantese.com (*1951) Schweizer Nahtodüberlebender, philosophisch-spiritueller Autor, Meister M – Licht der reinen Liebe, PDF, 13. Dezember 2004, präsentiert von der deutschen Zeitschrift Lichtfokus, München, Nr. 9, 14. Februar 2005

 

  • Was wir Abendländer Gott nennen, ist die Grundform des Seins, besser der Hintergrund des Seins. Es ist der Evolutionsprozess, der im Kosmos sichtbar und in vielem für uns unfassbar Gestalt annimmt. Diesen Hintergrund des Seins, diese Urwirklichkeit, dieses Urprinzip nennen wir seit Jahrtausenden Gott. Willigis Jäger OSB (*1925) deutscher Benediktinermönch, Zen-Meister der Sanbo-Kyodan-Linie, Mystiker

In sehr seltenen Fällen bewirken große Ideen nach sehr langer Zeit des Meditierens oder des Betens eine Assymetrie des Thalamus.

  • Gott wird Ihr Gehirn [Ihr Leben und möglicherweise die Welt] verändern. Weshalb? Weil Gott ein großer Gedanke ist und womöglich der zweitgrößte Gedanke in der Welt. Eine wirklich große Idee wird in einigen der wichtigsten Bereiche Ihres Gehirns Dendriten wachsen lassen. Große Ideen wie Frieden, Mitgefühl oder Liebe. [...] Gott ist ein großer Gedanke und ist gut für Ihr Gehirn, allerdings nur dann, wenn Ihr Gottesbild positiv ist.

  • Der Mensch weiß nur von Gott, insofern Gott im Menschen von sich selbst weiß; dies Wissen ist Selbstbewusstsein Gottes, aber ebenso ein Wissen desselben vom Menschen, und dies Wissen Gottes vom Menschen ist Wissen des Menschen von Gott; der Geist des Menschen, von Gott zu wissen, ist nur der Geist Gottes selbst. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel [BW 425] (1770-1831) deutscher Philosoph des Deutschen Idealismus, Schriftsteller

Indirekter ontologischer Gottesbeweis

  • Ich versuche nicht, Herr, Deine Tiefe zu durchdringen, denn auf keine Weise stelle ich ihr meinen Verstand gleich; aber mich verlangt, Deine Wahrheit einigermaßen einzusehen, die mein Herz glaubt und liebt. Ich suche ja auch nicht einzusehen, um zu glauben, sondern ich glaube, um einzusehen. Denn auch das glaube ich: Wenn ich nicht glaube, werde ich nicht einsehen.
    Also, Herr, der Du die Glaubenseinsicht gibst, verleihe mir, dass ich, soweit du es nützlich weißt, einsehe, dass du bist, wie wir glauben, und das bist, was wir glauben. Und zwar glauben wir, dass du etwas bist, über dem nichts Größeres gedacht werden kann. […]
    Und sicherlich kann »das, über dem Größeres nicht gedacht werden kann«, nicht im Verstand allein sein. Denn wenn es wenigstens im Verstand allein ist, kann gedacht werden, dass es auch in Wirklichkeit existiere – was größer ist. Wenn also »das, über dem Größeres nicht gedacht werden kann«, im Verstande allein ist, so ist eben »das, über dem Größeres nicht gedacht werden kann«, [etwas], über dem Größeres gedacht werden kann. Das aber kann gewiss nicht sein. Es existiert also ohne Zweifel »etwas, über dem Größeres nicht gedacht werden kann«, sowohl im Verstand als auch in der Wirklichkeit. Anselm von Canterbury [Vater der Scholastik] (1033/34-1109) italienischer Theologe, Philosoph des Mittelalters, Begründer der Scholastik, Proslogion, Einführung und Übersetzung P. Franciscus Salesius Schmitt OSB, S. 83/85, Stuttgart/Bad Cannstatt, 1962

Quotes by various other sources

Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Matthew 22, 37 (NT)

 

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in him, purifleth himself even as He is pure. 1 John 3, 2-3 (NT)
Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face.2 This vision is reserved as the reward of our faith; and of it the Apostle John also says, When He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.3 By "the face" of God we are to understand His manifestation, and not a part of the body similar to that which in our bodies we call by that name. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, philosopher, City of God [De Civitate Dei], chapter 22, section 29 "Of the Beatific Vision", early 5th century AD

 

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Saint Paul, Romans 1, 20 (NT)

 

Personal avowals

  • I believe that the situation of women today perhaps can be defined as being the ‘eternal feminine.’ I am seeking the eternal feminine. Everything that is accidental and animated by situations and circumstances cannot change the eternal, which is essential. In this respect, I expressed what I seek and desire in the document about the dignity of women. Pope John Paul I| (1920-2005) Polish theologian, 264th head of the Catholic Church (1978-2005), beatification 2011, answering a reporter on the plane from Reykjavik to Helsinki about the meaning of his Apostolic Letter Mulieris dignitatem, June 1989; cited in: Is God Mother? Background of a Pontifical Statement, Consequences of Vatican II, Atila Sinke Guimarães

 

  • I cannot define for you what God is. I can only say that my work has proved empirically that the pattern of God exists in every man, and that this pattern has at its disposal the greatest of all his energies for transformation and transfiguration of his natural being. Not only the meaning of his life but his renewal and his institutions depend on his conscious relationship with this pattern in his collective unconscious. Carl Gustav Jung [LoC 520/540] (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of analytical depth psychology, author, written just before his death in a letter to Laurens van der Post, cited in: Jung’s Understanding of the Meaning of the Shadow, excerpted from Laurens van der Post (1906-1996) South African farmer, war hero, political advisor to British heads of government, friend of Prince Charles, godfather of Prince William, cultural anthropologist, conservationist, humanitarian, philosopher, educator, filmmaker, journalist, 20th-century Afrikaner author, Jung and the Story of Our Time, S. 216, 1975, Vintage, 12.

  • My first question when I was before the Light was "Are you God?"
    I didn’t believe in God at all. The Light is really, as I know now, the oversoul matrix of our system and the sum-total of everything we have ever been to this point. It is, itself, evolving as we are evolving, so the Light seems to know you. It knows you individually and discretely because your light is a direct part of it. I call it the Great Self. When I asked the Light "Are You God?" – and the light speaks to you in a way that you will understand – the Light said to me

  • I don't have any idea of who or what God is. But I do believe in some great spiritual power. I feel it particularly when I’m out in nature. It’s just something that's bigger and stronger than what I am or what anybody is. I feel it. And it's enough for me. Jane Goodall (*1934) British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, UN Messenger of Peace

  • The father who embraces his lost son is the definitive icon of God […]. The merciful father of the parable has in himself […] all of the characteristics of fatherhood and motherhood. In embracing the son he shows the profile of a mother. Pope John Paul I| (1920-2005) Polish theologian, 264th head of the Catholic Church (1978-2005), beatification 2011, 8. September 1999

 

  • If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it. Jalal ad-Din Muḥammad Rumi (1207-1273) Persian Muslim Sufi mystic, jurist, theologian, poet, source unknown

  • Man can try to name love, showering upon it all the names at his command, and still he will involve himself in endless self-deceptions. If he possesses a grain of wisdom, he will lay down his arms and name the unknown by the more unknown, ignotum per ignotius – that is, by the name of God. That is a confession of his subjection, his imperfection, and his dependence; but at the same time a testimony to his freedom to choose between truth and error. Carl Gustav Jung [LoC 520/540] (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections, final comments, Fontana Press, 1961, reissued edition 6.

  • The difficulty for most of us in the modern world is that the old-fashioned idea of God has become incredible or implausible. Alan Watts [LoC 485] (1915-1973) British religious philosopher, minister, Episcopal priest, Zen expert, speaker, writer

 

  • It is love alone that leads to right action. What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will. Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) Indian spiritual teacher, declined member of the Theosophical Society, philosopher, author

 

  • All names of God remain hallowed because they have been used not only to speak of God but also to speak to him. Martin Buber (1878-1965) Austrian-born Jewish religious researcher and philosopher, translator, educator, I and Thou, 1923

 

  • Some would deny any legitimate use of the word God because it has been misused so much. Certainly it is the most burdened of all human words. Precisely for that reason it is the most imperishable and unavoidable. And how much weight has all erroneous talk about God's nature and works (although there never has been nor can be any such talk that is not erroneous) compared with the one truth that all men who have addressed God really meant him? For whoever pronounces the word God and really means Thou, addresses, no matter what his delusion, the true Thou of his life that cannot be restricted by any other and to whom he stands in a relationship that includes all others. Martin Buber (1878-1965) Austrian-born Jewish religious researcher and philosopher, translator, educator, I and Thou, 1923

 

  • God is the mysterium tremendum that appears and overthrows, but he is also the mystery of the self-evident, nearer to me than my I. Martin Buber (1878-1965) Austrian-born Jewish religious researcher and philosopher, translator, educator

Omnipresence

  • If God is present everywhere, it follows that under no circumstances can we ever be separated from him. We may feel that we are; we may think that we are. But in actual fact, there is no way that we can ever be apart from God even if we try. Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O.

  • Except God no substance can be granted or conceived. [...] Everything, I say, is in God, and all things which are made, are made by the laws of the infinite nature of God, and necessarily follows from the necessity of his essence. Benedict de Spinoza (1632-1677) Dutch philosopher, philosophical treatise Ethics, 1677

 

  • By God I mean a being absolutely infinite – that is, a substance consisting of infinite attributes, of which each expresses eternal and infinite essentiality. […]
    Existence of this kind is conceived as an eternal truth, and, therefore, cannot be explained by continuance or time. […]
    [N]either intellect nor will pertains to the nature of God. Baruch Spinoza [LoC 480] (1632-1677) Dutch philosopher, philosophical treatise Ethics, Part I., 1677

 

  • There is a definition of God which has been repeated by many philosophers. God is an intelligible sphere – a sphere known to the mind, not to the senses – whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. And the center is right where you're sitting. And the other one is right where I'm sitting. And each of us is a manifestation of that mystery. That's a nice mythological realization that sort of gives you a sense of who and what you are. Joseph Campbell, Ph.D. [LoC 410] (1904-1987) US American mythologist, expert in comparative mythology and comparative religion, author, The Power of Myth, 1987

The proper role of the humble civil leader is to serve as a conduit and steward of Divine power.

  • God is love; God is light; God is truth. To these great synonyms, I add another: When it is civil, God is power. The power belongs to God, and the proper role of the civil leader is merely to be a conduit and to steward that power as God's agent. Merely! What a paradox! To exercise temporal power with civility is to undertake a role of great glory, and it can only be undertaken with genuine humility. M.

  • The individual mind is immanent but not only in the body. It is immanent also in the pathways and messages outside the body; and there is a larger Mind of which the individual mind is only a sub-system. This larger Mind is comparable to God and is perhaps what some people mean by "God," but it is still immanent in the total interconnected social system and planetary ecology.

  • [T]he ultimate reason of things must lie in a necessary substance, in which the differentiation of the changes only exists eminently as in their source; and this is what we call God. […] God alone is the primary Unity, or original simple substance, from which all monads, created and derived, are produced. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) German polylingual philosopher, mathematician, historian, politician, diplomat, 1670

 

  • When scientists use the word God, they usually mean the God of Order. For example, one of the most important revelations in Einstein's early childhood took place when he read his first books on science. He immediately realized that most of what he had been taught about religion could not possibly be true. Throughout his career, however, he clung to the belief that a mysterious, divine Order existed in the universe. His life's calling, he would say, was to ferret out his thoughts, to determine whether he had any choice in creating the universe. Einstein repeatedly referred to this God in his writings, fondly calling him "the Old Man." When stumped with an intractable mathematical problem, he would often say, "God is subtle, but not malicious."

  • If they want me to believe in their god, they'll have to sing me better songs. [...]
    I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity– through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity! I learned to walk; since then have I let myself run. I learned to fly; since then I do not need pushing in order to move from a spot. Now am I light, now do I fly; now do I see myself under myself. Now there danceth a God in me.

God images corresponding with levels of consciousness – D. Hawkins

God is transcendent-immanent, a paradox for the split mind.
The God images projected or held by men represent different stages of evolution.
These projections directed to God express what is presently available to the individual.
The drive to access All-There-Is [God] may derive from the Id, the ego, the self, the SELF.
During the human evolution through shifting stages of consciousness people feel triggered to project/perceive following God images in their imagination:

What is God? Balancing Spirituality and Practicality – Jacob Needleman

To think about God is for the human soul what breathing is for the human body. First sentence (revelation)

 

The proof for the existence of God is the existence of people who are inhabited by and who manifest God.

 

What matters is that we are deeply and authentically concerned with questions of ultimate reality and ultimate value. It only matters that we are called to try to be honest and deep and good in our thought and life. [...]

 

If we lose all contact with this inner God element [the vibration of the soul] in ourselves, the wordless yearning to serve the good and know the truth, our thoughts and our actions will lead us nowhere. Our thoughts will lead us either to cynicism or to an absurd overestimation of our own mental powers. [...]

 

After having become aware of this strange intimate twoness soul and mind within myself I began to be acutely aware of its presence or absence whenever I began to think about ultimate questions. [...] I began to be intentionally aware [...] of my state of being when I tried to think about God or Ultimate Reality. And I observed [...] that when I thought about God or Ultimate Reality without any sense of the inner vibration of my being then my thoughts simply raced ahead into complications and ingenuity, without relief, without substance. [...]

 

When that special yearning and vibration for a moment surfaced in my heart and body, even faintly, I experienced a despair about all my clever ideas. [...] My conscience brought me the pain of remorse which for years I reacted to with fits of depression in order to cover it over with self pity [...]. I saw in many of my valued friends and teachers the same heartless brilliance and cleverness. It served to increase my despair and cynicism about truth and the good. [...]

 

This heartless way of thinking about God and Ultimate Reality dominates the mind of the contemporary world.

 

For God or against God, belief or atheism, it makes no difference unless the inner yearning is there. And it can so easily be there, just as it can be so easily be covered over and ignored, perhaps for the rest of one's life.

 

God or not God, belief or science, it also makes no real difference for my personal life unless the call of the Great Self and its need to breathe is heard and ultimately respected.

 

Not only can thought about Ultimate Reality make no difference to the world or to my personal life unless we hear and respect the call of the Self but such empty thought can bring down our personal and collective world, even our Earth itself.
When thought races ahead of being a civilization is racing toward destruction.
