Please note that the text below was written by the feeling-being ‘Peter’ while ‘he’ lived in a pragmatic
(methodological), still-in-control/same-way-of-being Virtual Freedom before becoming actually free.
‘Who’ am I ~ God
Peter: The process of asking oneself ‘Who am I’ and
relentlessly sublimating all the unwanted ‘bad’ emotions will lead inevitably to the delusion of divinity.
In order to make the differences between Actual Freedom and the spiritual ‘ego-death’ absolutely
clear, we produced a second schematic that indicates the famed so-called self-less state of the Buddhas and Enlightened Ones is but the result
of a process of self-aggrandizement.
It’s a very glitzy diagram for a very glitzy transformation. I think it’s clear
what happens – a shift in identity from mere mortal to Divine Immortal that is well documented in all the spiritual texts – it’s just that
people are so seduced by the fantasy that they will live on ‘after their body dies’, that they are blinded to facts. An interesting and
rarely acknowledged facet of the idea of God is that to have the Good one must still have Evil lurking somewhere, to have the Divine one needs
the Diabolical, to have God one needs the Devil, by whatever name. The spiritual merely sublimates personal fear and aggression (the bad) for
one becomes God (the good) and therefore protected by one’s own imaginary aura or cocoon of Divine Love. Again this is well documented in all
the spiritual fables, in all the religious fairy stories – it is only passionate belief and the resulting blindness to facts that prevents the
whole silly nonsense becoming apparent.
