Why is it so important for us to understand "god"
Maybe if we spent more time jsut sitting with "him" we would be a lot better off..
"He" would teach us and we would be full of "his" wisdom and free from our egos.

Does he speak to you? Do you get a feeling? A liver shiver? The letters in your Alphabits line up to say something?

something beyond words/forms must teach us of the formless. "god" is beyond all things.. formless, limitless.. how can the limited words even try to explain what "god" has to say... Only in silence, a language beyond our Minds REasoning/understanding can teach us .
this doesnt say what it is.. it only says what it points too..
Each of us must walk it for ourselves. and still then we cannot teach it to another... they too will have to walk it for themselves.

What happens if the message I get directly contradicts the message you get? Is one of us "right"? How can we both be right if they are opposite messages? In fact, the message I get from God says you're completely wrong.

Wrong and right only come from the ego..
Truth has no wrong and right.. its beyond wrong and right.

being different doesn't mean one is wrong and one is right.. it means that we are all free to be individuals and also connected beyond our limited understanding.

The beliefs that you are attached to and have learned may have taught you that you are right and someone else is wrong. this is needed for power.. someone has to be wrong for the ego to be right and be superior.

lose this and go in search for yourself.. see for yourself without these belief that have been given to you.
See what you find.

So what you're saying is that right and wrong are very important? And our beliefs are irrelevant?

Is that what I sense you saying?

Right and wrong are Very important.. only to the Ego.. the ego is only an illusion.

Any beliefs are useless. Truth must be known, not believed.

So right and wrong are very important to everything in life and the ego is equally as important and real?

Beliefs are very useful and truth is irrelevant? Is that what you're trying to say?
