What Is God?

“What is God?” is a question that generates a different response from everyone who is asked. People who believe in a god will respond by saying that he/she is the creator of the and everything in it. On the other hand, most Atheists will deny the existence of a god without having any real alternative to explain their own existence.

Dohgons could never be so unwise because although we don’t believe in the god described in popular religions we do acknowledge that we have a creator. In fact, we know that the creative force behind the are . The difference between Atheists, Believers and Us is that we are wiser than to conceptualize the Great Spirit using our limited human perceptions. We know that the best way to understand the Great Spirit is to try our best to understanding its creation.

The God of popular culture is limited by the religions that describe him. All religions portray God as an all-knowing, all-loving being who desires the best for humanity. Unfortunately, those same religions cannot explain why God allows evil to persist in the world. Religions cannot be used to accurately recall history or understand nature and science. The only thing that religions are useful for is to understand human nature. The problem with is that people are trying to use religion to explain what it can’t instead of what it can.  

The Spirit of the created Life to be self-directed so Life survives and thrives using one basic mechanism, which is fulfillment. It installed two basic instincts in every living thing, a fear of death to protect Life and an inclination toward itself to guide us. That is why every race and culture throughout history and the Planet have attributed their existence to a higher power.

In ancient times humans used their Spiritual inclination to create gods for things they didn’t understand such as; the , the , the stars, thunder and lightning, and everything that they perceive as having an effect on their life. For their various gods they created deities that had to be guarded in case their enemies were to destroy them. It wasn’t until slaves in Egypt discovered that an imaginary god was more powerful than a physical one that the god concept became enhanced a thousand times.

As time went by kings and religious leaders used the power of the single imaginary god concept to form the foundation of organized religion. They recognized that no other power, not even their own, had the ability to control the minds of people. Today most people still live by the power of the concept; unfortunately they don’t know how it works because if they did they wouldn’t call it god.

So, if religion can’t accurately explain human existence or halt our self destruction, what is it that peple are referring to as god? The Spiritual essence of the universe created humans with an inclination back toward itself, the Spirit. That same Spiritual inclination is also what makes us consider our actions in terms of Right and Wrong. So in essence, the god of popular culture is the human Conscience.

All major religions were developed to give purpose to people’s lives. They do so with the help of an imaginary humanoid that possesses super-human abilities as well as a power over life and death. That figure is then given universal moral judgment over people’s lives. Individuals believe they can gain the favor of the god by being faithful and morally upright. No problem there!

Religious people all around the world today are trying their best to gain the favor of their imaginary Gods. They become obsessed with fighting the Desires of life by fasting, praying, and trying to do but because they always become ruled by the same that they’re trying to regulate, they don’t realize that God is really their Conscience.
