Is this the hill you want to die on?



My eldest son, Joshua, asked me this recently in reference to my belief that we are all (collectively) G-d.

My answer: YES.  Because, as far as I am concerned, it is the absolute, undiminished, truth of all truths.  The problem of course is that if I believe that, than any other thing that contradicts this is a lie, and those who believe thusly believe in lies. Those who do not believe in their own inherent G-d-ness are deceived. They’re ignorant, or worse, they are elitist. This saddens me, but seeing humanity eternally involved in endless wars saddens me as well.   Seeing people homeless and in poverty, seeing people sick and untreated, seeing people hungry, these things sadden me as well. Seeing women treated as possessions, being denied the right to decide what happens to their own bodies saddens me. Seeing people killed or tortured for the crime of being the wrong color saddens me.

The thing is, my belief, if accepted and implemented by everyone, would put an end to  all of the problems that plague our race (the human race – the ONLY race).  What has your belief contributed to humanity?
