The Infinite God, The Finite Human Beings, And The Several Religions

The human being is finite. God is infinite. Which is to say, it is not possible for human beings to fully comprehend God. Not now, not never. God is always going to be bigger than what you know God to be.

God is One. There is no your God, my God. God is not a president or a prime minister. The prime minister of India is not the prime minister also of Americans. But God is not like that. There is one God. That God is the God of the entire cosmos.

God is One, but that One God is a Trinity. There are three distinct persons of God, but because the three exist in perfect harmony, it is said God is One. The Holy Father (Vishnu), the Holy Son (Bramha/Wisdom), and the Holy Spirit (Mahesh).

The Holy Spirit showed up on earth in a human form something like 10,000 or more years ago. Hindus call Him Shiva. He was not born from a woman's womb. He simply descended on earth from heaven in human form.

The Holy Father was born as a human being 7,000 years ago as Lord Rama, and the scripture associated with that human incarnation of God is the Ramayana. Before he left he said he will be back. He was back 2,000 years later as Lord Krishna, the second human incarnation of the Holy Father. The scripture associated with that is the Mahabharata. Geeta is the crown jewel of that book, just like the Gospel is the crown jewel of the Bible.

There is mention of the Vedas in the Ramayana, which is to say the Vedas precede the Ramayana. The Vedas were given to the Brahmins as a gift from God. The Brahmins are also a chosen people just like the Jews. God did not choose a people to play favors. God chose a people so all peoples may see wonderful things can happen if you choose to have a relationship with God. For example, worldly success. But that worldly success does not happen if worldly success is your top priority. The top priority always has to be God.

When the Brahmins got the Vedas, which is chockful of advanced mathematical and scientific formulae, they did not have enough knowledge to even cultivate paddy, or rice. That is how you know the Vedas did not originate on earth. They were a gift from God.

In the Geeta, Lord Krishna talks about Wisdom, the name for Jesus in the Jewish Bible. No matter the extent of your sin, by way of Wisdom you will be able to cross the sea of all sin, He says. He said that before a single word of the Bible was written.

God said to Abraham, don't worry about Ishmael, I will make a nation out of him also. That nation is the nation of Islam. Islam is not a false religion.

In the Koran God explicitly denies that Jesus is His Son. For the same reason God sacrifices His Son in the Gospel, God denies His Son in the Koran.

Christians say, God so loved humanity, He sacrificed His own Son. Muslims should learn to say, God so loved humanity He denied His own Son. Ishmael was denied. Look at all the human beings on earth today who don't know who their biological parents are. God's message to them is, I am your True Father.

The Buddha was an enlightened human being. He never claimed he was God. He almost never even talked about God. But he showed there is such an enormous amount the human mind can comprehend. One way to think of the Buddha is he was the Bruce Lee of the mind. The Bible says, Be still and know that I am God. The Buddha teaches you how to be still.

Shiva, the Holy Spirit in human form, is the founder of Yoga. What the Buddha achieved is a small subset of what Shiva gave in the form of teaching. Another name for Shiva is the First Teacher.

All the major religions point towards the same God.

When you comprehend that God through one book, through one scripture, you have to admit, you as a human being are finite, but God is infinite, and so God is bigger than what you know God to be through that one book.

Even if you raise your spiritual awareness of seeing that all the major religions point towards the same God, God is going to be bigger still. God is not what the major religions say God is. God is all that and so much more.

The first four of the ten commandments are to do with the love of God. Why? Why is the love of God so important?

There are seven heavens. Paradise is the lowest of the seven heavens. When you accept Jesus and wash away all your sins, that is a ticket to paradise. But that paradise is only the lowest of the seven heavens. Mother Mary, on the other hand, is in the highest of the seven heavens.

It is the love of God that will take you from paradise to the higher heavens. The path is entirely spiritual.

Love of God, of course, is the best policy on earth, which is not even paradise.

The scriptures don't contradict each other. The God of infinite goodness wants you to do good. And the scriptures point towards that good again and again.

You are like a laptop that needs to plug into power. God is the power.

There is nothing that God does not know. There is nothing that God can not do. There is no place God is not.
