God did not create a meaningless world

Today we start with positive ideas – it’s as though we are getting to the part of Plato’s cave where we can see glimmers of the outside world.

Until now everything has been negative – it has been waking up to the meaninglessness of normal consensus reality. In terms of the myth of the cave in Plato’s Republic we were noticing that we were shackled and just seeing the shadows.

Now, we move toward the Tao (Ultimate Reality).

From the workbook: With eyes closed, think of all the horrors in the world that cross your mind. Name each one as it occurs to you, and then deny its reality. God did not create it, and so it is not real.

  • God did not create this fear of poverty so it is not real.
  • God did not create the fear that “White Cat” will not return so it’s not real – and then White Cat did return on the fourth calling.

As I read the workbook I come to another concept I object to:

God did not create a meaningless world. He did not create [specify the situation which is disturbing you], and so it is not real.

I have enough problems with the word God as its a word which has been so abused by fundamentalists. I have even more problem with calling God as he. Ultimate Reality (Tao – my name for God) is beyond all descriptions especially gender. In Genesis it is written:

God created Adam (human beings) in own image – male and female created them. Later on male dominated religions called this abstract genderless being as a male father god like Zeus. So I use she for God just to counter all the times others use he. Thus applying the idea to itself:

  • God did not create a meaningless world. She did not create a male God, and so it is not real.
  • God did not create this temper tantrum so it’s not real.
  • God did not make this tiredness so it is not real.

Because ultimately God did not creat a meaningless world.
