An excerpt from the book What is Man. The title is not the title of the chapter.

We all want to be God. Supreme, important, and above all. We are of, and from the only supreme Being. Naturally we all want to be what we were thought of, though, we as the created cannot be above the creator. However, we can be above one another, and that is precisely what we are doing. Sadly, there always is someone, if not something we cannot control. Our entire earthly time is spent chasing after the wind, and in a very short time return to sender. Most of us forego the transformation we were sent here to accomplish. Except for a very few, all the greatness, and wealth most of us manage to realize here, are superseded and inherited by someone who is sent after us. Unless we are willing to share our Awareness, from whence our power is generated, equally with others for mutual benefit in the growth of Awareness to procreate Awareness (Life); our Awareness will decline and eventually degenerate and disappear. As our body is recycled, and used to make bodies for new Awarenesses, we become unaware of ourself, and our Awareness return to the Source void. If we want to be God, supreme and all powerful (all knowing), then we must give up all that we desire (being self absorbed) on earth, for the Source of all Awareness. From being intensely self engrossed, to being absolutely engaged with the Source of our Awareness. Become like the Source itself; as an equal with the Source, while at the same time preserving our self Awareness (identity). An identical twin, an express image of the Source. For we, our Consciousness, not our body, was created according to the likeness and the image of the Source of our Consciousness. Firstly innocent like babies, and then the Conscience (character) of the Source was introduced.
“Behold the man has become like One of Us, Knowing Good and Evil.” Gen. 3:22
Conscious means to ‘know with’, so man came to know with Existence and Nonexistence. Life and death. And unless man comes to know with the Character of Existence and transpire that Character, the possibility of eternal Existence is a big goose egg. Eternally Existing in Consciousness is knowing with the Eternal Consciousness, that is to know with It’s Character. So that man can Communicate eternally with like Characters.
“Can two walk together, unless they are Agreed.” Amos.3:3
And there exists no other Consciousness, Conscious-Conscience.
“There is none besides Me.” Isaiah. 45:5
The Source is within us. Our ability to grow in Awareness of the Source is within us. Our continuity in Awareness is within us, but without venturing within us, we are left with what is outside of us that are mere manifestations of Awareness. We can become aware of God's manifestations and be subject to them, or we can become aware of Him who manifest all that exists and procreate by unifying with His Awareness. Become truly God by becoming fully conscious, knowing with our innermost quiddity, the Conscience; and fully uniting with it, and walking with God. Or we can spend our time here, becoming aware of all that has manifested from the thoughts of God, and feel we have become God. But, there is no other experience more empowering and undying than the experience of uniting unconditionally with the Conscience of God.
To be loved unconditionally, we have to love unconditionally. We have to forsake our desire for self glorification, and seek after the glory that gave birth to our self-awareness; and become one with it, and be glorified in the fulfillment of It's desire. All what exists is all what we can know about. We have come to know a little about an infinite amount, and we feel like God, and believe we are.
Knowledge is understanding something about what already exist. Awareness is recognizing what something is about, and appreciating what it is, and realizing it. To accept what we are is to be what we are, incarnations of pure Light to increase in brightness to shine like the Source of our light. Only then will we have the Awareness to understand about all that exists. Our Awareness is a quantum of a great Consciousness with an equally great Conscience, and to become greatly Conscious we need to become equally Conscientious. That is truly growing up. Regrettably many are growing old and wise in their own eyes by growing in knowledge of what has been created, and not of the creator, and believe they are grown up. But if we were to truly grow up: when our material manifestation expires, we can continue in the realization of our being, in the knowledge of who we really are; without which we cannot relate to consciousness that is life, and conscientiousness that is living. The Special Relativity of Consciousness: the Conscious-Conscience equivalence. The reality of life.
The universe is a materialization of a Consciousness. The Universe: one Realm, one Consciousness. Consciousness is not manifested from the material. The material is the matter of Consciousness. Consciousness is Life, and matter is
it's testimony. The matter of God.
Our body is matter of God, and our consciousness is Awareness of God. To become God we have to become aware of our consciousness, and not of our matter. Our creations are matter of our consciousness, and their worth or fate is judged or decided upon by our conscience; but our consciousness is an extension of the Universal Consciousness, and it's worthiness is decided upon by It's Conscience. Therefore our destiny depends on what we create with our Conscious-Conscience.
“Out of the mouths of babes and nursing infants your fate will be determined.” Matt.21:16
“Unless you convert and become humble like little children, you will by no means enter the Kingdom
of God.” Matt. 18:3
“If you want to be Perfect, go sell all your creations, and follow your Conscience." Matt. 19:21
"For what good is it for you to create anything, yet lose the means of creating.” Matt. 16:26
Who wants eternal life?
Everybody wants to live forever. But everybody knows that they won't.
Everybody wants to remain conscious, now that they have become conscious. And everybody is aware, that they will lose their awareness. So it goes without saying that, nobody really thinks of living a life that can continue forever. Nobody opens a fixed deposit account that they can withdraw in two hundred years time, unless they want to leave it to their great grand children.
There is a time during our growth in consciousness, when we begin to become aware that our consciousness (life) will expire, and this awareness of the termination of our consciousness becomes greater as we grow further in consciousness. A two year old hardly knows it is alive, and is not aware of dying. A teenager's awareness of his consciousness is so vibrant and naive, that he feels he is invincible, and a forty year old's awareness of his consciousness has reached a more reasonable stage, and is fully aware of the expiry of his consciousness. An eighty year old has reasoned for forty years and is pragmatic about his end. As we grow in consciousness, we become more aware of our end. That is the irony of consciousness. Life tells you life will end. And there is more undesirable realizations to come from Consciousness that we have to confront during our time of Consciousness.
There is nothing we can do about our life. We cannot plan the future, and what life is to each one of us, is the life that is presented to us. No one is where they are, doing what they are doing, and with whom they are with; of their own will, or of their making. None of us are born of our own making, so how can any of us make anything happen of our own will? All what we make happen is what conclusion we make on any given circumstance, and the decision, and the action or no action we make on it. Life is Consciousness, and Consciousness brings Awareness to the Conscious, and the Conscious becomes aware of his circumstance in relation to his position, physically and more importantly emotionally, and is forced into decision making. Problem solving. Life is now problematic and difficult. Henceforth eternal life is not so attractive. It would mean problem solving forever.
Who wants to work forever, without retirement on
a sizable pension forever?
Who wants to be with the same woman or man having infinite number of children, without desiring another woman or man, and free of responsibility for his or her young forever?
Who wants to climb the corporate ladder forever, without ever reaching the top? For reaching the top would mean end of that life.
Who wants to do the same thing forever?
Who wants to do anything, anytime, anywhere, and anyhow forever, like God?
On earth we repeat life. It is a physical life in a
physical world. The physical realm is a circular, oscillating domain. The physical universe is a sphere moving in a circular course, and everything in it, down to the most elementary particle is oscillating and circling. And since man has decided out of his awareness that he is a physical being, he lives a circular oscillating life. Every year he looks forward to the New Year, Birthday, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Wage Increase, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. The Circle of life. What we do on these repeated occurrences are the oscillations of life. The circling life is boring, so we increase our oscillation at every repeated occurrence. As each repeated occurrence passes, our frequency of oscillation drops, and the excitement of life returns to low frequency; and if there weren't another occurrence to look forward for excitement, life would become passionless and flat. Like the wave pattern on a heart monitor of a person who's heart has stopped beating. So the next occurrence revives our oscillation like a medical team revives the heart to beat again with cardiopulmonary resuscitation. But eventually the matter of our body also loses it's frequency of oscillation, and breaks down to continue in it's circular course. And our awareness of it all ends there.
However, if we embrace Consciousness as we are meant to, and increase in the frequency of interaction with the Source of our Consciousness, our consciousness will grow in Awareness, in Conscious-Conscience equilibrium; and life will transform from a circular oscillating material repetition, to a linear advancing nonmaterial Energy. A compelling infinite life force with a myriad of possibilities.
How does one know that this is what life is all about?
How does one know anything unless one experience them?
Our consciousness comes with a conscience, and the choice we are given is to be conscientious or not to be conscientious. To be God, or not to be God.
Everybody is looking for their Soul Mate when everybody is born of their Soul Mate, their Conscience. To be one with your Conscience is to truly be Conscious (to know with) of your other half. Most of humanity in their ‘Unconsciousness’ mistake Holy Communion for holy matrimony.
Matrimony is to do with Mother. Through whom we are born physically, so naturally we seek mother’s love.
Communion is to do with Love. Of whom we are
created in Love, so conscientiously we need to seek God’s Love.
In the physical universe, our consciousness is restricted by physical laws. In theory we can do many things, but in practice they are impossible to execute. Nevertheless, our consciousness is not restricted, perhaps demanding, yet absolutely free to achieve it’s highest state. The state of our consciousness determines the position of our character, but the position we hold in the world do not necessarily determine the state of our character. So he who holds a position has the power (integrity) vested in the position, but he who holds the power has the position in himself. And most of us work for a position in the world to have power in the world. But in heaven there is only one position for all who have the power (integrity) of the Eternal.
If one can live with one’s Conscience, one can live with God forever. ‘God within’.
Peace of Mind, the Liberty of Life.
“It’s the spirit (character) that lives, the body (matter) profits nothing.”
