The Many Faces Of Divinity

There are so many different ways to ask this interesting question because it is a subjective claim. It extends to the understanding of the nature of your belief. In the end, it all comes down to this one question: `Who or what is God?’

A quick search of the word ‘god’ reveals the following: - the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being - a superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity

A deity or god is a supernatural being considered divine or sacred, usually worshipped by people who believe it controls or exerts force over some aspect of the world.

Genesis 1.1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Everything comes into existence by and through the movement of God. But Who or What is God? Contrary to popular belief, it is not a being or power outside of yourself.

Let’s consider you, seated as you are now. You can move without physically moving because yours is an eternal body. Close your eyes for a moment. Think about the last holiday you had with your family. See the place with your mind’s eye. How was the weather? Was it hot in summer or cold in winter? What about the surroundings? Was it crowded? The places you visited, what did you see? Beautiful surroundings, busy malls, or a leisurely walk by the beach.

Where have you been? You have moved. And you are moving despite you seated right here reading this article. What was that? It was all imagination. Just as you can imagine a good thing, you can just as well imagine a bad thing. You can be where you choose to be. So if you find yourself in a place where you are miserable and feel helpless, it is because you either knowingly or unknowingly put yourself into that state. It is not because some deity or god outside of you has condemned you into that state.

You are God’s power and wisdom, called Christ in scripture.

Every situation you ever thought about or conceived exists as a fact in God. But this fact cannot be discerned by you until you inhabit the state, for you are the operant power. Man is the agent of expression. For you to experience something, you need to put yourself into that state, either hate or love, joy, or sorrow. All things involve expression.

Whatever state you are in right now, you have imagined yourself into it. If you don’t like it, you can imagine yourself out of it and into another. It is all a matter of movement. You are not blessed or cursed by some being outside of yourself. You either wittingly or unwittingly fell into the state of good, bad, or indifferent.

Gen 1.2 And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

How strange it seemed to say God moved. How did He move? Did He run like us? Did He glide through space or float in the air? In what way did He move? Why is that significant and how does that relate to us?

In the Book of Joshua (which is the Hebraic name for Jesus) the Lord said: “Wherever the sole of your foot will tread upon, I have given you.” Who decides where your foot threads on? Is it not you and you alone, for the world is yours and all within it. Do be reminded that: wherever you tread, that will be given to you!

The source of creation is within you. You can be just a piece of flesh, or you can be the Creator himself; this is the choice and potential you have.

– Sadhguru

Joshua or Jesus is not someone outside of you, not another being or historical figure. He is the Christ consciousness in you. He who is the hope of glory. So when Scripture tells us that God became Man, it is so that Man may become God. Imagination is all that you are. You are conceived through imagination – a thought, a desire, a notion. It became you that you may become it.

People regard God as a divine external being that is outside of self. This Being, a powerful creator constructed the universe and all that is in it but somehow remained apart from it. Yet, when you perceived that He is “Imagination” the concept of separation ceases to be.

Just as you had imagined yourself into the state you are now occupying, you can imagine yourself into any state you desire to express. There isn’t any outside deity who moved you into the state of misery you are now expressing. You did it yourself. But why? Because you forgot who you are.

Phil 2.13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

You have power working inside you. For what? So that you may do what pleases Him. And what exactly pleases Him? Does your misery please Him? What pleases Him is the fact that He will give you that which “the sole of your foot treads upon.” That is a prayer answered, a request fulfilled, a desire realized. You imagined every state in the beginning and through a preconceived idea or plan, you moved forward on your journey until you possess that state.

The ego doesn't know that the source of all energy is within you, so it seeks it outside.

– Eckhart Tolle

We all wear masks while playing in this game called life. We take on the role of the weak man, the strong man, the poor man, and the rich man, conceived in the beginning by imagination. You are the expression, the representation of god in this world. That is what you perceived to be the reality.

The universe is nothing more than imagination in creation while it is fast asleep. You and I move from state to state unconsciously, and at other times, unintentionally. Imagination will continue the journey of creation until you begin to awaken into your true self and see the world as it is.

Religious leaders of the world claim only the seers, the mystics, or the prophets know who God is. They claimed only the chosen ones see the light and associate with it without seeing the face.

There are not thousands of lights that exist. Only one vast, infinite light. If one takes on a white light and another multi-colored lights, both originate from the same divine light. There is only one God who is playing many different parts. In the end, you will know that you are light, that you are spirit, that you are god, from personal experience.

Psalm 82.6 I said, You are gods; you are all sons of the most high.

In the beginning, we were all the elohim, which is a compound unity of one made up of many. Someone may have mocha brown skin, while I have pale yellowish skin tone. You may think we came out of different beings, but these are only masks we wear. Our true identity is the light of the world. We are the expression of infinite love.

It was only through finding the divine within myself that I could begin to see divinity reflected to me in every other human I encounter. And this is how I know. There are no ‘others’. They are all part of the divine, the Elohim. Part of me.


(The meaning of Namaste: My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty, and peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing those things, we are united. We are the same, we are one.)

That is Man. Everyone is gathered into the human form divine. Not one will be lost, for in the beginning we agreed to dream this world into being. Then we went our separate ways, falling into different states of consciousness and blaming others for the discords we witness. While we tend to elevate one and condemn another, man is simply a representation of a state in which God entered.

Being completely masked, we think we are all separate individuals. That’s because we view the world through the unconscious or the sleeping mind. As humanity awakens, we will return into oneness, and all discord will turn into harmony.

And this notion is so beautifully expressed by Paul Coelho: “We are all a part of the divine spark. All have a purpose in creation and that purpose is called Love. That love, however, shouldn't be concentrated in just one person, it should be scattered throughout the world, waiting to be discovered. Wake up that love. What is gone cannot return. What is about to arrive needs to be recognized.”
