聽神談【「對神的認知」如何開始影響人類?】
 
需求是不存在的。它是一種虛構的想像。事實上,你們並不需要任何東西才能快樂。快樂是一種心智(mind)的狀態。 
 
但這不是早期的人類能夠理解的。由於他們覺得「必須有某些東西才能帶來快樂」,因此他們就認為這對所有的生命必然同樣也是真實的。這個假定也包括了對他們所理解的一個「更大力量」的生命的那個部分——那後代子孫都把它概念化為一個「活的存在體」的力量,被稱為阿拉、上帝、耶和華及神等多種不同名稱的力量。
 
對早期的人類而言,想像有這麼一位比他們自己更強大的力量並不難。實際上,那還是必要的。因為他們對於那些「全然超乎他們所能控制之事情的發生」需要有個解釋。
 
這裡的錯誤不在設想了有個像神(總合之力量與綜合之能量的「一切萬有」)的東西,而是在設想了這「總合力量與完整能量」可能根本是有需求的;因而認為神在某些方面是需要依賴某事或某人,才能快樂或滿足、完整或圓滿。
 
這就像在說「圓滿」是不滿的,它需要某東西來使它圓滿。這是個矛盾——但他們不明白這一點。許多人到今天仍然不明白這個道理。
 
 
由於創造出這麼一個「依賴人類的神」,因此人們製作出「神是有議程的」的文化背景。也就是說,有些事情是神想要和需要它發生的,而且會以它們必須發生的方式發生,只有這樣,神才會快樂。
 
人類已將這文化故事轉化為一種神話,將它具體化為:爾旨承行。(Thy Will be done. 註:意思是神的意志必將被達成。)
 
你們認為我是「有意旨要你們去遵行」的想法,使得你們去猜測我的意旨是什麼。
 
 
摘自《與神合一》第1章
 
 
 
Need does not exist. It is a fiction. In reality, you need nothing to be happy. Happiness is a state of mind.
This is not something that early humans were capable of grasping. And because they felt that they needed certain things in order to be happy, they assumed that the same must be true of all Life. Included in that assumption was that part of Life which they came to understand as a Greater Power— a power that succeeding generations have conceptualized as a living being referred to by a wide variety of names, among them Allah, Yahweh, Jehovah, and God.
It was not difficult for early humans to conceive of a power greater than themselves. Indeed,  it was necessary. An explanation was needed for things that happened that were totally out  of their control.
The mistake here was not in assuming that there was such a thing as God (the combined power and the combined energy of All That Is), but in assuming that this Total Power and Complete Energy could need anything at all; that God was, in some way, dependent on something or someone else to be happy or satisfied, complete or fulfilled.
This was like saying that The Fullness was not full, that it needed something to make it full. It was a contradiction in terms—but they could not see this. Many still do not see it today.
From this creation of a dependent God, people produced a cultural story in which God has an agenda. In other words, there are things God wants and needs to occur, and ways in which they must occur, in order for God to be happy.
Humans have reduced this cultural story to a myth that has crystallized as: Thy Will be done. Your idea that I had a Will forced you to then try to figure out what My Will was.
