We are God!

Watch the video below from 10:23 to 13:37.

We have to live our lives more mindfully, with concentration so that we can be deeply in touch with what is happening. Then we have a chance to touch the true nature of reality: no birth and no death. And that is described in Buddhism with the term "Nirvana". Nirvana is no birth and no death. And in Christianity, you may call it: "The Ultimate", "God". God is our true nature of no birth and no death. And we don't have to go to find God. God is our true nature. 

It's like a wave. A wave believes that she is subjected to birth and death. And every time she comes up and begins to go down, she is afraid of dying. A wave is afraid of dying. But if the wave realizes that she is water, she is no longer afraid. Before goin up, she is water. Going down, she is water. And after going down, she continues to be water. There is no death.

So, it's very important that the wave do some meditation and realizes that she is wave but she is at the same time water. And when she knows she is water, she is no longer afraid of dying. She feels wonderful going up, she feels wonderful going down. She is free from fear. And our cloud is also like that, they are not afraid of dying. They know that if they are not a cloud, they can be something else, equally beautiful like the rain or the snow. 

So, the wave does not go and look for water. She doesn't have to go and search for water because she is water in the here and the now. The same thing is true with God. You don't have to look for God. We are God. God is our true nature. You don't have to go and look for Nirvana. Nirvana is our ground. That is the teaching of the Buddha. And a number of us have been able to realize that. We enjoy the present moment. We know that it is impossible for us to die. 

Our true nature is no birth and no death. Christians call it God and Buddhists call it Nirvana. So, we are God. All we need is to revive our true nature. For that, mindfulness, concentration and insight will help. The following book will guide you the concrete practice methods.
