The nature of a Higher Being has been discussed since the time caveman and cavewomen looked up at the sky and attributed such things as thunder to the Gods. Over the centuries worship has taken many forms and today the array is mind boggling, which shows the versatility of human interpretation. But what I don't understand is why we can’t recognise that in all probabilities what and whom we worship is one and the same thing.
For eon’s human kind has worshiped a parent God or Goddess who they pray to in time of need (there are no atheists in a foxhole). God is God the father and one aspect of the Goddess is the mother. I believe this is appropriate for a developing and evolving peoples but I also think that one day we will arrive at the point when we recognise our own divinity and the fact that we are here to do it for our self’s. If you will we are our own Higher Being. I'm with Leonardo on this one my interpretation leans towards a inner light that is part of a greater whole and after that I get lost as I can not imagine losing my individuality (which supposedly happens when one becomes enlightened).
In my current literary interest the nature of genius is discussed with the author stating that it is much more prevalent than we think, the eureka moment which is available to genius is available to us all. Using the example of a poet the process is as follows .A line of verse is thought about and thought about, turned over and over ,combinations are tried but nothing is quite right. At the point of surrender which can be viewed as giving up the answer comes seemly from no were. The thought processes are necessary it sows the way till the connection is made.
How can this be God or a higher principle at work simple the solution to the problem filters down from the universal mind and this sequence can be blocked by ego interference. I believe that prophets and spiritual leaders are also able to tape the collective consciousness , here also we have seen time and time again egos inflated and downfalls occurring when personality takes over.
Why do I like what this author has to say, I recognise this principle from personal experience which makes me think yes there could be something to this.
Offcourse this is just one maybe among many maybes that may or may not be.
