My Deism Explained
To me God is the infinite All. Meaning God is the Supreme Consciousness or Supreme Mind at the root of all possible realities, universes, and dimensions of existence. So God is everything that exists, and God is also the Supreme Mind which brought everything into existence as well. God pervades all that is as God is fully immanent and God also goes beyond all that is as God is fully transcendent as well. God is the first cause and creator of all existence, and the source of all that exists and God is also everything in existence and all that exists as well. For God manifests him/her/itself as the things it created. God is everywhere, in everything, is everything, and God is nowhere in particular, beyond everything and is beyond everything. God is the source of all the laws of logic, reason, and the divine intelligence behind the information which governs all matter, energy, space, time, and the laws and forces of physics. God is the source of all the universal constants of nature and the cosmos itself, and the divine intelligence behind the laws and universal forces of nature. God governs existence by his/her/its divine providence and divine will, and is the driving force behind the universal constant of change, evolution and metamorphosis. God created the cosmos by the big bang, and continues to play an active role in the development and evolution of the cosmos. We can know God through the creation itself, science, the use of reason and direct spiritual experiences. Deism is a reasonable faith in a God that reveals itself through the orderly workings of creation itself, it doesn't require a church, a reliance on corruptible so called holy books written by corrupt men, nor does it require a blind obedience to a clergy. Ones relationship to God need not be confined to dogma, church or corrupt clergy men. Instead ones relationship with God should be reasonable, scientific, directly experienced and spiritually sound. God is in all things and all things are in God whom alone is. In God we move, live and have our being. May the light of God's reason guide us to a better world. I believe we all cocreate our own personal experiences of reality, through our own thoughts, deeds and actions, an that we are all ultimately responsible for our own personal experiences, and that the universe will mirror back what our individual perceptions project upon it. I also believe the afterlife will be whatever we think or believe it to be when we die and that depending on what we think or believe or don't believe the Mind of God will mirror back to us our own thoughts or beliefs or lack thereof when it comes to life after death. Anyway this is my own form of Deism and it works for me it may not work for others. Which is fine if everyone thought or believed the same the world would be a very boring place. So I encourage freedom of thought and free spiritual development.
