How the Word God Is to Be Understood
The word God, in the first place, should be interpreted as the Primordial Consciousness that dwells in the deepest and subtlest primary plane of the multidimensional universe. The
Primordial Consciousness — is God-the-Father, Who is also called the Creator, Jehovah, Savaof, Allah,
Iswara, Tao, Adibuddha, etc.
This Primordial Consciousness is One for the whole universe and therefore for all living beings, including people who live on our planet. And the fact that the word God sounds differently in different languages does not mean that there are many Gods or that various nations that inhabit Earth have their own God.
The second meaning of the word God includes the Creator with His entire multidimensional Creation, which is brought into existence by Him, is based on Him as on a foundation, and is incapable of existing without or being separated from Him. In this sense, God is
Absolutely Everything (the Absolute) — Everything, except for hell and its inhabitants. (By definition of
Jesus Christ, hell is the outer darkness — outer in relation to God-Absolute).
The concept of God includes also Manifestations of the Creator in the Creation which people call the
Holy Spirit (Brahman). The Holy Spirit most often manifests Himself in the form of Divine Teachers that come out from the Abode of the Creator. (They can, in particular, condense the energy of Consciousness to the level, perceivable or even quite visible by embodied people).
Manifestation of a Divine Teacher on the material plane through incarnation into a human body is called
Such a Teacher, as well as the Holy Spirit, is an Integral Part of the Creator (Primordial Consciousness).
“God is ONE”
The statement “God is ONE” is true. The Divine Teachers in the Abode of the Creator are the merged integral Parts of One Primordial Consciousness. The criterion here is that Their Abode is the primary spatial dimension called the Abode of the Creator. Each of Them, while remaining one with the Creator, comes out from the Abode into the world of the Creation only by a part of Himself.
What cannot be included in the concept of God
One should not include in the concept of God mythological (fairy-tale) and fictitious characters of national religious folklore (those sharing such naive and essentially false conceptions are called pagans).
Attempts to present God as an invisible flying being with a human-like appearance are also naive and false.
God should be thought of as neither “information” nor “information field”, nor “collective human intellect”, nor should He be given other similar superficial and incompetent definitions.
Cognition of God has nothing to do with “conversations with aliens”, “astral traveling”, spiritism, magic rituals or astrological fantasies.
Describing God as a malicious monster punishing people for their sins is a striking perversion that turns people away from loving Him and hinders their advancement on the spiritual Path.
Thus, the concept of God includes:
— the Creator, called in other languages and other religious schools also God-the-Father, Primordial Consciousness, Allah, Ishvara, Tao etc.,
— the Absolute,
— non-incarnate (They are countless) as well as incarnate Divine Teachers coming out from the Abode of the Creator.
This is the essence of the true, monotheistic conception of what God is.
