The Truth About God

"Every human thought, and every human action, is based in either love or fear. There is no other human motivation, and all other ideas are but derivatives of these two. And here is how human behavior produces repeat experience after repeat experience; it is why humans love, the destroy, then love again: always there is the swing from one emotion to the other.

"And the reason is found in the first lie - the lie which you hold as the truth about God - that God cannot be trusted; that God's love cannot be depended upon; that God's acceptance of you is conditional; that the ultimate outcome is thus in doubt.

"The first thing you worry about after saying 'I love you' is whether you'll hear it back. And, if you hear it back, then you begin immediately to worry that the love you have just found, you will lose. And so all action becomes a reaction - defense against loss - even as you seek to defend yourself against the loss of God.

"Yet if you know who you are - that you are the most magnificent, the most remarkable, the most splendid being God has ever created - you would never fear. But you do not know who you are, and you think you are a great deal less. And where did you get the idea of how much less than magnificent you are? From the only people whose word you would take on everything. From your mother and your father.

"From this experience you draw your conclusions about Me. Within this framework you speak your truth. 'God is a loving God,' you say, 'but if you break His commandments, He will punish you with eternal banishment and everlasting damnation.' For have you not experienced the banishment of your own parents? Do you not know the pain of their damnation? How, then, could you imagine it to be any different with Me?

"You have forgotten what it was like to be loved without condition. You have projected the role of 'parent' onto God, and have thus come up with a God who judges and rewards or punishes, based on how good He feels about what you've been up to. You cannot accept the idea of a God who is not to be feared, who will not judge, and who has no cause to punish.

"Every action taken by human beings is based in love or fear. Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals. Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked. Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, love holds dear. Fear grasps, love lets go.

"Every human thought, word, or deed is based in one emotion or the other. You have no choice about this, because there is nothing else from which to choose. But, you have free choice about which of these to select."
