Get real! Just the collective conscienceness of the people on Yahoo Answers are evidence enough that we are not part of anything god-like or higher anything. You obviously haven’t spent much time here. If you and I, along with everyone else, were part of a collective god-head, that would be the most depressing thing I could think of. What do you possibly base this on?
I believe God is a seperate being. Completely different from man. We are made by Him in His likeness…..but we are not collectively Him. Go get a copy of the Bible and see what you think. You might want to start reading in the book of John and go from there.
WHAT YOU ARE IS BUT A SEED INSIDE A SHELL, YET TO COME TO BE A HOLY PART OF LIFE ,EATING OF THE KNOWLEDGE FROM THE TREE OF LIFE,ALL ARE EATING OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL AND FALL SPIRITUALLY INTO THE OUTER VOID OF DARKNESS ONTO DEATH. IN THE TRUTH YOU FAIL TO SEE THE TRUTH AND STAND UP IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AGAINST THE WICKED, FILLING THE FIELDS FULL WITH THE DEAD , ENDING A SHORT LIFE OF THE YOUTH IN LIFE BORN ONTO DEATH,
From my understanding of the soul and the conciousness from a religious viewpoint, each soul is a part of the divine that is trying to reach its source again, but will evolve through several planes of existence to reach it. There is also the idea that we have a twin soul that is supposed to evolve along side us, that when we are ready to move to the next plane, that person will come into our lives.
