Metaphysics and God
What Is God?
Metaphysics and God have a very close relationship. And it is through this relationship, between metaphysics and God, that I am able to answer the "unanswerable" question, What is God? The information that comes from metaphysics and God does not go against any ancient wisdom or major religion. Instead, in my opinion, it is able to compliment them.
It is through my own experiences, guidance from all kinds of beings (physical and non-physical), and the theories from
metaphysics/spirituality/religion about God that I am able to answer the "unanswerable" question, what is God? Once again, the information that comes from metaphysics (which is the philosophical study of being and knowing)
does not go against any ancient wisdom or major religion.
Metaphysics and God are very closely related
There are three key aspects pertaining to God that have been passed down in all sacred texts and major religions in some form, although they may have become distorted over time:
1. God is One
2. God is Everywhere and Everything
3. You are a part of God (or you have a soul)
Although an infinite concept such as "God" cannot possibly be put into words, since all words have a limiting effect. God is an infinite concept. Regardless I will attempt to provide you with a comprehensive view of God through this article.
But before I begin, I want to let you know that in no way am I forcing my concept of God on you. Instead I would like to simply provide you with an alternative view of metaphysics and God; that perhaps you may have never considered. It is
my hope that you will explore these ideas, about metaphysics and God, to see if they resonate with you. If they do not, please don't force yourself to hold them, instead let them go, maybe you will come back to them and maybe you won't. Only do what is right for you. I can not tell you what will work for you; I can only tell you what has worked for me. And in explaining how I have come to understand God, I sincerely hope you find what is right for you!
Okay, here we go...
There are many names for God including, but not limited to, Higher Self,
All-That-Is, One, etc… Personally, I normally don't use the word "God", but
I will for this article. The terminology is never important, no matter what
word you use; it will not live up to the concept of God. Every word, no
matter how empowering has limits, even though God is limitless. Therefore,
do not worry about the word, instead think about the idea.
What Is God’s Role?
Firstly, we must have a common understanding of God’s role, before we can
begin to elaborate upon the concept of God. God is the ultimate creator and
has complete control over our realities. God creates the entire Earth and all
physical life. God is an infinite being.
What Is God Made Of?
In relating metaphysics and God, understanding what God is made of is
critical. Both science and metaphysics/spirituality have come to the same
conclusion about what God is made of. If you ask a metaphysician, “what is
God?” they will answer, God is everywhere and everything, God is moving
through form, into form, and out of form.
If you ask a quantum physicist, “what is everything made of?” They will
respond, "energy". If you ask them, “what is energy?” they will reply energy
is everywhere and everything, and that it is moving through form, into form
and out of form. So it is all the same thing, just a difference in
terminology. The conclusion we come to is that God is energy.
God is also consciousness (consciousness is basically awareness). This
brings us to the next point...
How are You a Part of God?
You are a spark of consciousness, a spiritual being that is having a
physical experience, which is part of God. Whether you like to call that
part of God that you are, your Soul, Inner Self, True Self, etc… you must
simply recognize its existence. Remember, the terminology does not matter;
only the idea behind it matters.
This is what a fellow journeyer had to say about metaphysics and God:
Pretend that you are enlightened.
Pretend that you are loved by God.
Pretend that you are perfect just the way you are.
Take a deep breath now and PRETEND WHAT IS TRUE.
Then everything will make sense.
When you pretend something that is true, then you immediately become that
First the energy of God descends upon the Earth, then it pretends whatever
it wants to be, then it ascends back to its source.
You are God pretending to be whatever you are right now.
Do you understand what this means?
You have allowed yourself to descend, but by pretending to be less than
what you are, you have not ascended back to God."
-Thomas (Indigo Child)
If We Are All God, Then How Can God Be One?
The easy answer is that we are all interconnected, but that is not
the whole truth…
It is very misleading to say that you are a part of God, because you are
actually the Whole God. This is a timeless principle of metaphysics. You
must grasp the idea that you are the God, you search for. At least
for this article, open your mind, and try on this idea for 5 minutes. It
will not hurt you. Explore the possibility that you are the Ultimate
But now, how can we all be One? Metaphysics and God states that God is All-That-Is.
We are each All-That-Is focused in on part of the whole picture. There are
really no divisions between us, it is all an illusion. It is as if you are
one point of a painting. When you look around you see other parts of the
painting, which you believe are separate from you. But if you could see the
whole painting you would realize that you are all the same.
So basically, you are the awareness of All-That-Is completely focused in
your physical body, and it is the same with everyone else. You see, we
each experience our own body and don’t realize that we are all the same
Being, just focused on different experiences (or physical bodies).
The other points of All-That-Is are non-physical and what you call your
Higher Self. I do not like this word, because calling that part of yourself
"higher" makes it seem better than you, and it also separates Yourself. You
are both the same being, just focused on different aspects of reality. Your
Higher Self is not higher than you, nor is your Higher Self lower. You are
just on different vibrational levels; there is no better or worse. Metaphysics and God reminds you that you are your Higher Self!
So We Are God, But What About Everything Else? How Can God be
Everything and Everywhere?
You/God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, but how? In every atom
there is an energy field. This energy field contains a spark of
consciousness (God), just as every cell in your body contains. Each cell has
a part of God, as well as the whole God. This may seem confusing initially;
however, once you explore it thoroughly you will be able to understand it.
Let me address this in another way; the house you live in, the car you
drive, the computer you are looking at, the chair you are sitting in are
all God. The Infinite Being focuses on everything, not just what we consider
to be alive. Therefore, everything has energy and awareness (consciousness).
To end your confusion, you should realize that God did not create that
chair you are sitting on, instead God became it. You may be wondering
why God would do this, and the answer, in short, is to experience it. You
are all about experiencing and expanding the limitless energy that is God.
God is always growing and expanding because It is always having new
experiences and producing more energy.
Metaphysics and God can be a complicated subject since, much of this seems to get lost in translation, since it is something that
you must experience in order to fully comprehend. Once you experience
All-That-Is, everything in this article will make sense.
I even recommend you save this article and come back to it a year from now,
after you have played around with these concepts. Then you will understand
this much more.
If you would like to experience your True Being, and become
All-That-Is there are many ways to do this. Personally, I achieved this
through applying metaphysics with meditation and other metaphysical
practices. I have heard of other people doing it through dreams, yoga, drugs
(not recommended), walking in nature, and contemplative prayer. I am sure
there are many more ways. But you do whatever feels good for you.
You do not have to worry about how you will do it. If you sincerely put out
a conscious intent to experience All-That-Is, you will attract that
experience towards you. All you have to do is ask, the answers are always
To summarize metaphysics and God:
God is One
God is everywhere and everything
You are a part of God
Not only are you a part of God, but you are the Whole God
You are an eternal, ever-expanding, infinite being
That is all there is to metaphysics and God, you can make it more complicated if you wish. Eventually you will realize that you are God; however, only if you
want to (you absolutely do not have to). You are God; you can do whatever it
is that you want. Nobody can stop you. You are an eternal, limitless being.
The only limits you will ever experience are those you choose. The only
external Gods you will experience are ones that you chose to believe in and
give power to. It is always your choice, for you are All-That-Is.
