Is there a God and is there a Devil?
What you might call God, we would use the term All That Is. God is the system of All That Is. God encompass the infinite aspects of the universe, the laws of the universe, that which is as well as that which is not yet and all possibilities. God is infinite and is within every particle that exists within the physical realm including you. You are God just as everything is God. You are not separate from God nor is anything or anyone else. God is good and all that is good is God. Since God exists in All That Is, God also exists in whatever you might call “bad.”
Since God exists in the “good and bad” there is no need for a devil. The devil was created to explain away the bad. It was an attempt by humans to label God as that which is good and the devil as that which is bad. This is a dualistic approach to God and it is formed from judgment that arises out of fear. If you believe something is good then what you are saying is that you do not fear it. If you believe that something is bad, it is due to fear. You either fear something or not. You judge it good or bad based upon your belief and if your belief is limiting, you might form an opinion that it is bad. That opinion comes from a limited perspective. From the higher perspective, there is no bad and so there is no devil.
If God is good, why would he allow babies to die? Because, in this reality where you are the creator of your experience, all things are possible. Babies are allowed to die. From your perspective you cannot imagine why a baby would want to die. However, that perspective is limited. It comes from your idea about what life is and that life is precious. While life is certainly something to be enjoyed and appreciated, it is not precious at all from the higher perspective. When you choose to return to the nonphysical you will certainly understand what a single life experience is from a perspective that encompasses the true understanding of how the system is designed. From the higher perspective, you realize how easily you flow from the nonphysical realm to the physical realm and back again. There is no great importance to a single life and you have lived many, many lifetimes before this one.
If there is no bad, then there is no need or purpose for a devil. The devil never made anyone do anything. Those who acted out of fear did things they may have regretted, but the devil did not make them do it. This is an interesting idea, isn’t it? Those who participated in the holocaust did so not out of joy and inspiration, but out of fear. All action taken from a stance of fear is never aligned with what is truly wanted. Once the person comes back into alignment they may look back and regret their actions. However, actions, even those taken out of fear, are never bad or wrong. They still must be judged wrong in order to be perceived as wrong and that judgment also comes from fear. From the higher perspective there is no wrong in any of it because it is all expansive and that is the ultimate purpose of physical reality.
If you do something out of fear and later call it wrong, you do so because the action was out of alignment with who you really are and this causes you to feel fear. Others may also judge the action as wrong and in doing so they reveal their own fears. But there is no wrong in any of it because it always spawns new desires and moves one to a new level of awareness. When you feel fear and you choose to take action to control or change conditions, you might believe that the devil is responsible for those actions. But this too is a means of control borne out of victimhood. You want to deny your own ability to create your reality and so you cast blame onto an invisible entity that controls your fate. In reality, neither God nor the devil has any power to create in your reality. That is up to you alone. If you believe that all good is derived from God and all bad is delivered by the devil, then you relinquish your own creative abilities and you place your fate in the hands of someone else. However, this cannot be true in a reality designed to allow you to explore subjects on your own terms and to discover who you really are. This system is one of expansion and self-discovery and if you were not free to create in your own reality then the system would serve no purpose.
You are God, you are a creator (in the image of God), and you create in your own reality. Nothing can create in your reality. Good and bad are judged by you and you alone. Others may judge things as good and bad and you may agree with them, but that does not mean anything other than you share the same fears. If you want to release the devil from your experience of life, all you have to do is stop pretending that some things are inherently good and others are inherently bad. All you have to do is recognize that from the higher perspective, everything is good even if you feel some fear about it. If you can find the good in any situation, you will connect with God. If you see the bad, you bring the devil back into your reality.
Joshua is a group of nonphysical teachers channeled by Gary Temple Bodley. Their practical teachings provide a greater understanding of the mechanism of physical reality, the Law of Attraction, and how to leverage universal forces to enhance our lives. Joshua’s first book “A Perception of Reality” explains the nature of reality using plain english in an easy-to-understand format. This book is the next step for those awakened individuals seeking higher levels of consciousness and awareness.
