God is an unknown Substance that has created everything, and continuously creates in all spheres of existence. When God remembers and interacts with its creations, the Spirit of God is considered to be active.
Everything that exists is a manifestation of God, but everything is not God, only an aspect of God in worldly form.
God is not a Being unless you believe God is, in which case you will experience God that way through spiritual communications, visions, and events. This is a valid belief, and so forming and maintaining a relationship with God is necessary and can be beneficial.
God creates objects and events without conscious willful volition. It is karma, or the law of consequences, that explains the manner in which God creates. God does not micro-manage, but instead reality reaches a “tipping point” and manifests as determined.
God as Substance exists within everything and everybody in varying degrees, and in different ways. If you recognize this within yourself you will be guided by God, and will rejoice in doing God’s work in God’s way.
Submitting to, obeying, and serving God results in the paradoxical outcome of liberation in which one lives a life of faith awareness. All of one’s needs are met, one’s life and the world are experienced as perfect, and love abounds.
If you are one with God, you and God will collaborate in creation more than those who do not have that quality relationship with God; if enlightened you and God are One, co-creating the universe, guided by care and love for all.
