AFTER YOU DIE YOU WILL MEET GOD ROAD SIGN
During a road trip from Florida to Virginia and back again in my RV, and over the course of 900 miles, one can see a lot of billboards along the south to north stretch of I-95. I don't remember many of them, but three in particular caught my eye. All three of them delivered the same message, black letters on a stark white background from the same organization: "After You Die You Will Meet God" and at the bottom was their website domain.
Really? How arrogant and ignorant to place a billboard with this message without any further explanation or meaning. Fear tactics, nothing more. That is NOT the message of God, or the True Christianity. Let me take a few paragraphs and explain to you why I believe this to be such an ignorant, and unreasonable statement.
First of all, apparently the people behind it are assuming that they actually KNOW the actual Truth. In fact, their website even includes the word "Truth." They believe the deception so deeply that they now want to pay money to offer their personal convoluted statement to all the travelers on I-95. But ... meeting God "AFTER" you die is nowhere even near the Truth of who and what God/Source really is, and when you will interact with it.
God ... or Source Energy, The All, The Almighty, The One, The I AM, etc. is evident in ALL of creation at THIS very moment. In Western (Christian) scripture and thought, God is traditionally described as a being that which possesses at least three necessary properties: omniscience (all-knowing), omnipotence (all-powerful), and omnipresent (present in all things). In other words, God knows everything, has the power to do anything, and is everything, everywhere. The prefix “Omni” means “ALL”. Combining these in order, there is no mistake that the statement translates to “all-powerful, all-knowing, and “all-present." Everything ... is ... God.
From each breath we take, to the wonder of the universe and everything in it ... THIS is ALL what we have named "God." It is the Mind and manifestation of all there is, was, and ever will be ... and all of us are an integral part of the collective entirety of One. God, is experiencing and manifesting through Life itself ... with us, through us, and AS us ... NOW and ALWAYS ... Not ONLY after we die.
The Matrix of universal consciousness (the Field) interconnects every living cellular organism. While our bodies do die, that essence of who we really are ... does not. We are the life-force of energy within this vehicle or vessel of a body. It is our Ark. When the body returns to Mother Earth, from where it came, WE return to collective Spirit, from where WE came. And it is ALL ... right here. Another realm, another dimension ... But here and now. We are eternal energy having a temporary physical experience. Matter (Mother) is in fact energy at the lowest frequency of vibration. Nothing is solid, nothing is fixed. Study Quantum Physics for a bit and you will learn why.
Next, there is no need to "meet God" because we ARE God. Yeah, I know ... BLASPHEMY! Get over it and listen up ... within us is the Divine Spark of the Source ... the Christ Consciousness that is the microcosm of the macrocosm. As above, so below. As within, so without. WE are made in the image of God/Source. Upon connecting with and realizing this Truth, you will understand that there is no "other." All of Life is interconnected and the universe is mental/Mind.
God is Mind, manifesting creative desires in order to witness all there is to experience. From the ground you stand on, to the air you breathe, to all of Life being experienced by your sensory centers in your brain ... everything is electrical and magnetic energy being converted in your skull. Our entire Life existence is experienced inside the darkness of our head. Between our "temples." This is the throne of the Divine and Golgotha ... the place of the skull.
I could go on and on with this subject but in an effort to keep this writing to a reasonable length, I will end with this counter-statement. Instead of "After You Die You Will Meet God" ... simply know that God exists all around you in every form your senses can experience. The basic reality is, that God/Source Energy is ALL there is. It is the "I AM' that you are. I am ... THAT ... I am. Yeah ... THAT one.
Just a thought ...
