So far so good. But then, why, if every degree of awareness is itself God and full of the goodness of God, do we experience both good and bad?
The answer is belief.
The moment we add belief to awareness we have God and.
We add an opinion about him, her or it; we add judgment; we hold an idea about a person, thing, activity, amount or place.
The moment we do this, we change our experience from that of pure God to no God at all. We’ve made a “false idol” and we worship it. We’ve made a prodigal of ourselves by setting up a personal self whose primary impulse is self-survival and self-satisfaction.
We have created a belief of difference and therefore separation from God, and we suffer it.
