[Ramtha] The White Book 1 What is God?
Notes from ‘The White Book‘ by Ramtha
The God that I know, that I love, that is the power that issues forth from me and the kingdom that I am, is a God of complete and unjudgmental love. It is nothing else but everything else. God loves you with greater love than you have ever fathomed, for it is the life that you are, the ground that you walk on, the air that you breathe. It is the colour of your skin, the magnificence of your eyes, the gentleness of your touch. It is you in every moment that you are, in every thought that you think, in every deed that you do, even in the shadows of your soul.
God is an all-consuming force that is everything. It is the wind upon the water, the changing of leaves, the simplicity of a rose deep in its colour and hue. God is lovers in their embrace, children in their laughter, and the sheen of honey-coloured hair. It is the sun rising in the morning, a star twinkling in the night, the moon waxing and waning across the midnight sky. God is the beauteous insect, the humble bird in flight, the vile and ugly worm.
God is movement and colour, sound and light. God is passion.
God is love. God is joy. God is sadness. That which is – all that is – is what you term God the Father, the totality of life, and the lover of all that it is.
God is not a singular character who sits upon a throne and judges the whole of life. God is the whole of life, every pulsating moment. It is the ongoingness and foreverness of everything that is.
The Father has never judged you in this or any moment you have ever lived. He has been you and the platform of life upon which you have expressed your own divine, purposeful self. He has given you the uniqueness of your own ego and the freedom of will to become whatever you wish to become, to perceive the life that he is, however you choose to perceive it. And nothing you have ever done, nothing you have ever thought – no matter how vile or wretched or wonderful it has been – has ever been seen by God as anything other than being.
He is the Isness that allows you to express through him however you choose. And it is a good thing he is that way, for if he truly were this God created by man, there is not one of you who would ever see what is called pearled gates – not one of you – for there is not one of you who could ever live up to the expectations of this God created by man.
Only you, through your own attitudes and the acceptance of the attitudes of others, have ever judged yourself. Only you have ever caused yourself to feel failure. With the ability to create from your Father whatever truth and reality you desire, you are the sole judge of your own life. Only you have ever determined what is good and what is bad, what is right and what is wrong.
Yet in the Isness called life, no thing is any of these. Everything simply is a part of the Isness that is called God Almighty. Your judgment is only an illusion that you have created upon this plane of creative realities.
In your limited thinking, you have thought that some things are wrong, that they are evil. But that has been your selection of truth, and the Father has allowed you to have it. His truth is called Isness. God loves you regardless of what you do because everything you do or think enhances the life that he is through the wisdom that you gain from it.
Now what is God in its most exalted form? Thought. The Father – the platform from which you create your life, the substance and life force of all things – is, in a greater understanding, thought, for thought is the ultimate creator of all things that are, that ever have been, that ever will be. Thought is the substance from which all things are created. Everything that is has come forth first from thought, which is the supreme intelligence called the mind of God.
Student: You have taught that God is simply an Isness. And you use many terms besides the term God to refer to this life-force intelligence. But why do you often choose to use the words “he” and “Father”? That seems to perpetuate the notion that God is not only an identity outside of us but a male character, and that seems a bit offensive to some women.
Ramtha: To educate the whole of humanity, one must utilize the different terms which have been used to describe God; that is, one must refer to the Isness in ways that all can relate to.
Though the Isness has been referred to as the Father and thus thought of as a male gender, the Father is not a man; yet man in his gender is the Father. But so be woman, for the Father is both male and female.
The term God is sexless. It means supreme intelligence. Those who do not understand the term Isness need to know the word Father. Those who do not understand supreme intelligence need to know the word God.
Master, if one insists that God is a Father, that is his truth. If there are women who are outraged because someone has called God a male gender, then that is their truth. But God will always be the perception of what God is, and that will always be unique for each entity.
- God. Ramtha’s teachings are an exposition of the statement, “You are God.” Humanity is described as the forgotten Gods, divine beings by nature who have forgotten their heritage and true identity. It is precisely this statement that represents Ramtha’s challenging message to our modern age, an age riddled with religious superstition and misconceptions about the divine and the true knowledge of wisdom.
- God within. It is the Observer, the great self, the primary consciousness, the Spirit, the God within the human person.
- God/man. God/woman. The full realization of a human being.
- Gods. The Gods are technologically advanced beings from other star systems who came to Earth 455,000 years ago. These Gods manipulated the human race genetically, mixing and modifying our DNA with theirs. They are responsible for the evolution of the neocortex and used the human race as a subdued work force. Evidence of these events is recorded in the Sumerian tablets and artifacts. This
- term is also used to describe the true identity of humanity, the
- forgotten Gods.
