Lady Master Natasha:
What is God?
God is not an explainable energy.
God is not an explainable anything, but God is knowable.
If you, in your Infinite Wisdom, choose a thought and a feeling to manifest, then God Energy, God Consciousness, Infinite Intelligence, Cosmic Awareness—you may use what terminology you like—is essential and necessary for that thought and that emotion to come into being. Therefore, one might say it is impossible to create without God. It is impossible to live without God. It is impossible to be without God, without Infinite Intelligence, without Cosmic Awareness, without that Energy that is responsible for the creation of all things.
Without you, there is no God, and without God, there is no you. So truly, in the world of metaphysics, it is the question of which came first: the chicken or the egg? Which came first, God or the Creation that allowed God to know Itself?
Earth’s religions have been used to stupefy intelligence. Some glorify, but in the main, most stupefy. That is because if you can convince a human being that he or she must look outside of himself or herself in order to create, to live, to survive, or to heal, then you have stripped them of their power, and they can be controlled.
There is an interesting thought that is travelling around the world this year, 2009, and that is the thought that “You are God.”
What does it mean to be God?
When you can embrace and live the idea that God comes forth from within, then all limitations, illusions, ancient feelings and restrictions within all parts of your being about being God are flushed out of you. THIS is the concept
that is moving into the hearts, minds, and molecules of all who exist on planet earth and even other places in the Universe. You are God, in all things and in all parts of your being.
However, if you currently have limitations about being God, how can you participate fully in this new and glorious experiment on planet Earth? Let us look at some of the limitations that live lurking in the depths of mass consciousness about the idea of God, the idea of Supreme Power or Omniscience, the idea of Infinite Intelligence, the idea of Knowingness, that is in all things everywhere and responds instantly to thoughts, frequencies, feelings, the new, the old, and so on. Let us look at some of the ideas that collectively exist about God.
Illusions about God
Religion has taught that God is an entity. All religions have their ideas about what God is. Early on, God was any entity that controlled the weather. So, there was a God for the sun, a God for the moon (often it was a Goddess for the moon); there was a God for the air and for the water. There was a God for the soil and a God for the grains.
There was a God for each particular aspect of life that existed that had anything at all to do with survival. So the idea implanted within the consciousness of humanity was “God is what keeps you alive, and if God is not happy, you are dead.” Or partially dead. Or fatigued. Or hungry. Or famished. Therefore, one must learn how to keep God happy, as though God were a consciousness that had whims, and if you displeased God in some way, something, such as the rain, was withheld.
Search your inner memory banks so see if you have that ancient thread of thought form in your being that “God must be appeased and made happy in order for you to survive.”
For you see, if you carry that grain of consciousness, from so long ago, within your genetic makeup, and you, yourself, are not following through on "what needs to be done to keep God happy” (for in those times, you would have been trained in that knowledge) then your very physical survival in this lifetime is being threatened.
In this day and age, your physical survival has to do with finances because money is what is used to buy your food,
medicines, clothing, house, cars, and fuel. So, if “You must make God happy in order for God to give unto you that which you need to survive”, and you are not doing what your ancient memories say you must do to ‘make God happy’, then you will be experiencing financial difficulties. Do you understand?
2. Giving in Order to Receive
When we move beyond the Gods of the elements, we move into the pantheon of Gods: The God of Dance,The God of Love, The God of War, The God of Hate. We move into the Gods who were given attitudes and emotions to rule over. In the ancient past, if you wished to harm someone, you might make obeisance unto the God of Hatred to sow discord into the life of that person. If you wanted to bring someone great happiness, you would give gifts to the altar of the Goddess of Love. If you wanted to be lucky on the hunt so that you might bring home the food, you would
give your best to the God of the Hunt.
This not only reinforces the idea that God is responsible for your survival, but also adds the belief that God is responsible for the way others treat you. If you wanted God to be with you on the battlefield and help you win the war, then you believed your success depended on something outside of you.
If you still have this thread of thought in your being, “God is outside of me, and I must give unto God in order to receive my livelihood, in order to receive love, in order to receive satisfaction for causing another to feel some way” then in this life you must give in order to receive. (EXAMPLE: If you seek healing but do not pay for it, you will not be healed. If you seek love but do not give the ‘right thing’ in return, you will not be loved. If you seek success but do not give enough to others, you will not be successful.)
Now, if you, and others like you, have this belief hidden within your ancient memories, what kind of culture will you create? If you were given a new planet and no one lived on it yet, and you had the ability to create life exactly as you would have it, see it, and experience it, but you have not cleared out these ideas that still live in the ancient recesses of your memories, it will cause you to create a society of bankers, for you will believe they have the power to keep your money safe. You will create institutions, for you will believe they have the power to instruct your mind and to form the rules and the laws of your society.
You will constantly create something outside of yourself to tell you how to live your life.
Now, let us return to ‘the gods’.
The Meaning of Loving the Self
When Christianity arrived, there was one idea and one idea only that was attempting to be promoted by the consciousness of Jeshua, and that idea was to love yourself and your neighbor as yourself. Why? You probably know history well enough to understand what a difficult idea that was at the time, for society was patriarchal. Women were not considered to be in the lineage of receiving intelligence, love, finance, or substance. They were shadowy and in the background of life, and so this idea of loving oneself and one’s neighbor as one’s self had to include all. It had to include women as well as men.
That was a foreign idea at the time.
But, when you take it one step beyond that, to love your neighbor as your self does not mean "When I put my trash cans out for pick-up, then I should also put my neighbor’s trash cans out as well, since I love my neighbor as myself. I will do for my neighbor what I do for me."
Instead, it means: Your neighbor IS yourself. As you give to the neighbor, you are giving to yourself.
This does not mean you must give in substance, although that IS a physical reflection for you of what you value. Instead, it means, Can you can look in the mirror and love yourself, then give that same love unto your neighbor? It means to think and feel towards another as you must learn to think and feel towards yourself.
If you say criticize your neighbor by saying that you do not like what your neighbor is doing, or how your neighbor is living, you are talking to yourself and are restricting your own personal freedoms, even though it looks, sounds, and feels like you are not really dealing with yourself.
Your neighbor is just a reflection of some part of yourself, and you are telling that part of yourself that you do not like the way it is living life. It must do it your way, which is the only right way. Anything else is wrong.In that moment, you have cut yourself in half, because your neighbor is yourself.
Now those words are heard and read everywhere on the planet, and yet very few understand them: Love your neighbor as your self. That is what the Christed Being came to show humanity.
If you choose to point the finger at another to find fault, you are simply finding fault with an aspect of yourself that loves you enough to reflect that fault to you.
Have an argument with someone you love dearly. Then heal the reason and the cause of that argument within the consciousness of both of you. An amazing thing happens: as time passes, neither one can remember why they had the argument because they healed it, and they are in a new reality.
That is what the Christ Consciousness came to teach on the planet: to love each aspect of yourself outside of yourself as yourself.
Because when you can see what is outside of yourself, you can take it within yourself, which is where you do the clearing, the cleansing, or the fussing at yourself if that is what you must do. Within yourself is where you shift, and when you do, your outer world will change itself.
THAT was the message the Christed One brought to the planet so long ago.
If, at that point in time, people understood truly the power they had as an individual, and they loved one another as
they loved themselves, they would be been uncontrollable by anyone usurping, right? Because if you love yourself, if you really love yourself, no one can control you. No one. No thought. No attitude. No problem can control you. For in loving yourself, you will know you are God.
If you do not love yourself, you cannot know yourself as God. You cannot know yourself as the Creator, the Giver, the Imaginator.
How can we recognize the Oneness of ourselves with the rest of humanity? The word “oneness” has different meanings for various people. (When asked their definition of ‘oneness’, a different members of ametaphysical group individually replied.)
"We are all One, all connected, all tied together because we are all God."
"We are all part of the Universe, part of the Earth".
"We are one because we are made of the same elements, the same substance that runs through all of creation, in which you find the vibration and the frequency of God".
"In addition to the physical substance, there is a spiritual essence where we are all One. Some recognize it and some don’t. I think perhaps it’s the spirituality that we all have the potential to increase that creates the binding of each one of us to the other. It doesn’t matter what our physicality might be. It’s our spirituality where brotherhood is truly generated, where the recognition of unification lies."
"We’re all eternal, and God is eternal also, so Oneness is having a common denominator like the abstract of Love, Truth, Beauty, or Justice, Eternal, enduring and lasting."
"I think that common denominator is ‘Spirit.” We are all Spirit. We have a body, but the main thing is we are all
"It’s the common denominator of the vibration of love that we all have that connects us to God."
"If you were to take a crystal prism and hold it to the light, you would see created untold beautiful emanations, but they all came from the one source of the crystal. One Source. Even though it may appear to have different colors, different intensities, and be in different places, it all came from the Same Source."
So, summarizing these ideas, “Oneness is the emanation from the God Consciousness of each reflection of individuality in a spiritualized format manifested through a physical commonality that is eternal.” Oneness, however, is not recognized through the mind. The mind can create a mental understanding and perhaps even a picture, but Oneness is within the self. Simply within yourself. That is why you are One Self. The One-ness.
How are you One with yourself?
You are constantly working on the Self to be the best Self that you know how to be: perhaps the wisest, or the kindest, the loveliest, the smartest or perhaps the most giving. Whatever it is that you are motivated to do within the self creates an energy field around you. It creates a frequency and a vibration that emanates out from you just as a beacon emanates its lights, as a light bulb emanates its shimmery frequencies, as a rock thrown into a pond emanates its circles.
And so you emanate this energy out from your being. Constantly. What happens is that like attracts like. The energy, as it moves out from your being, is seeking that which is likened unto itself. So as it moves into that which is likened unto itself, it recognizes itself. When it recognizes itself, in that moment is the concept and the feeling of Oneness.
Oneness is a feeling, and you know it because it is familiar; it is what is within you.
It is not only the vibration of love that creates Oneness. Those who are at war can find oneness because they all are fearful, or because they are all in hatred. It is the feeling that creates the recognition of Oneness.
So let us explore this a little bit further now. You are in your feeling space, and you recognize yourself. You are pleased with yourself. You are thinking, ‘Yes, I’m mighty fine. If the rest of the world were like me, what a wonderful place this would be.” Then someone comes into your life and does something that makes you upset with them. However, that person is you, so why are you getting mad at yourself? What are you not loving about yourself? Why are you not pleased with yourself when you observe the reflection of yourself?
I, Lady Master Natasha, will tell you why. Because in your loving of yourself and your idea that you are perfect, you are not fully and completely aware of all of your being, of all of the potentiality that lives within you, of the bits and pieces of ‘shards’ of the self that are seeking to be polished into the jewel that you think yourself to be. So, when someone outside of you can cause you to be rattled, angry, upset, or sad, to be any emotion out of your centered self (and let us qualify this: to be any emotion that displeases you)….this beautiful person who has allowed you to have this unpleasant emotion is yourself talking to yourself, “Hey, don’t you remember me? I live in there. I’m inside of you. I AM inside of you, but you forgot me. You forgot that I was there.”
On earth it is very easy to forget Oneness. It is easy to forget that the person who pushed your button is YOU. Is One With You! If you are displeased with that person, do not expect that person to be changing. Go inside of yourself, God, and find where that part of you is hidden and change that part of you. THAT is loving yourself. That is what loving yourself is. It is not looking in the mirror and admiring your beauty, or looking at your brawn. It is finding those aspects of yourself that you have forgotten which are what has kept you from being in love with yourself. At some point, the idea here, Beloveds, is that when there is not one left to push your buttons, you are in love with yourself. Then you are in true Oneness.
When you forgive another, you are forgiving yourself. Forgiveness is a mental acknowledgement, but it has many steps.
First, you must acknowledge self.
Second, you must acknowledge what created the experience.
Third, you must acknowledge that the experience can be shifted or altered, that it is illusory, and that it does not live forever.
Fourth, you must be willing to forget, because once you shift inside of yourself, if you have done it correctly, you will
forget, and you will not remember there was anything to forgive.
This discussion has been for the purpose of raising your conscious awareness to the idea of yourself as God, and what could interfere with that idea. Please take that concept, that idea, and let it percolate within you, that you might discover for yourself ways you limit yourself from being the beautiful God that you are. Ponder on what you think God is and is not.
What you think can be what sets you free or what keeps you a prisoner.
