Rumi says, 'No man can get to God until he becomes a heretic,' which means that you will never find God in pages with words written on them. If you want to find out what actually God is then you have to do what's necessary to create the environment that's supportive of that. Having a peak experience like being outdoors hiking or laying under the stars and just realizing that in a moment of 'Oh my God,' that somehow you're part of all of that and it's part of you. - Paul Chek

[1:26:00] What Is Consciousness?


Power Quotes From The Show


Chaos Is Actually Order

"What people don't realize about chaos is that it's not something that you should run from; it's something you should look into because there's information in chaos. In fact, if you look at almost all of the creation stories and myths from tribes all over the world, they say that the world and life itself began in chaos. So, if it all began in chaos and countless cultures have written that in their myths, then doesn't that tell you right up front that what looks like chaos is actually full of order in an occult or hidden form?" - Paul Chek


Why We Need Good And Evil

"The words from The Bible, Isaiah 45:7, 'I the Lord create the light and the dark,' means that there is consciousness creating something there. If everything was all dark, what would you see? Nothing and then there's nothing to be conscious of. If everything was light, what would you see? Nothing again. You have to have this contrast in order for consciousness to be aware of something i.e. for God to have its own experience of itself, it has to create the illusion of something that is and something that isn't. " - Paul Chek


We Are God Experiencing Itself

"The real question is, 'What's inside the evil and what is it trying to tell us to help us learn to live and love more fully?' which is the truth of God. The truth of God is good, beauty, honesty, and harmony. Evil is a necessary illusion that allows you to be aware that you can choose disharmony or harmony, love or hate, love or indifference, etc. God says 'yes' to all of it because ultimately if God is love then the highest form of love is unconditional love and by definition, the answer to every prayer is 'yes...'

...We are Co-Creators with God; we are not under God's control but we are God experiencing itself as Josh, Paul, trees, bees, planets, and stars. It's only through the choices that we make that God experiences the truth of itself. God is capable of rape, murder, and pillage but the difference is that God is not worried about it because God cannot die and God knows the truth of itself because it is the sum total of all consciousness known and unknown beyond our conception. What you create, good or bad, is an experience that God is having but nobody else cannot have that experience with God but you because God is making those choices." - Paul Chek
