God Is Not A Belief

God is not a Belief

“No image that can be conceived in the mind can ever be God; no concept of God ever entertained by man has the power to answer prayer. Then, is not the acknowledgment that God is too great to be bound by the mind and body the very first step that a seeker must take?

 “Thou shalt not make thee any graven image . . . “Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them.” What difference whether the graven image is external to us or an image in thought? It is still a graven image which we ourselves have carved out of our own thought. Let us do away with graven images; let us have no image of God; let us have no belief of what God is.”

“No one knows what God is, but if we think of God as Omnipresence, we are free of concepts because since God is, God must be here, there, and everywhere. There is no place where God is not, or God would not be infinite Being. If we think of God as Omnipotence, we are not building any image of God: we are merely stating that God is the only power there is, the all-power and the omnipresent power. If we think of God as Omniscience, then we also are not building an image in thought: we are merely realizing that there could not be a God if Its nature were not infinite intelligence. Infinite Intelligence, All-power, All-presence! And still there is no picture in our thought, still no image in thought, still no creating of a God in our image.” 

“Ultimately, every concept of God we have ever had must be dropped—every image, every belief. The moment we think Omnipotence, Omnipresence, Omniscience, we have no time, no space, and no place, nor is there any time, place, or space where there is an absence of God.”
