God is the glue which holds reality together. It is the interconnecting being which is both energetic and manifest. It is essence and existence, invisible energy and visible matter of which God is both the essence, the substance, and the form.
When manifest God travels through time and space and contains all that is manifest. Because God transcends time and space its being is eternal and infinite- omnipresent, all-knowing, and all-powerful.
Ends have beginnings but circles do not. God is the circle, the essence within its emptiness, and the matter within its manifested being. God is the essence or nature of the Universe, the manifest creation within the universe, and the means for movement or communication between that which is ‘essence’ and that which is ‘manifest’. Although being beyond concepts and dualism God is all aware of all this.
Because the universe is expanding, so is God. God is dynamic, cannot be totally contained within a person, although can manifest within a person and reveal some of its aspects or nature.
Jesus, claiming to be one with God, was unable to remain in the physical manifest body and be ‘one with God’. What was required was a ‘ascension’ or ‘fusing’ with God the essence and non-manifest being. As God is both visible and invisible, manifest and non-manifest, so was Jesus, was manifest, and after ascension, was not visible although his presence is still being felt on the manifest plane.
Though God is not currently manifest as ‘human being’ through a person as powerful as Jesus, the Christ, God’s qualities are still manifest through the elements: the strength of the mountains, the expansiveness of space, the power of thunder, cyclones, and movement of air and water; the power of fire as volcanoes and the earth’s liquid fiery nature.
When we attempt to perceive the nature or aspects of God while in the physical body and mind we are limited by being manifest beings, unable to move freely in the same manner as God.
The closest we can come to understanding or knowing God is by analogy or association. We perceive our consciousness as being beyond that which is mind and which is manifest, being beyond the phenomenal or experience. We perceive our consciousness to be ‘that which witnesses’ the phenomenal or manifest reality; and therefore has its origin before or beyond that which is manifest or phenomenal.
Therefore to perceive God as only that which is emptiness is as false as to say that God is only that which is manifest or visible.
