“From all that I’ve read and experienced, I have come to believe that the God-Force is not some autocratic monarch in the sky, but is actually a pure loving energy that supports us in our growth in a detached manner. We are therefore not the subjects of some “Cosmic King” with no power of our own, but are instead individual pieces of God-consciousness with the ability to co-create with God that which we desire.
Now clearly this concept of co-creation carries with it enormous responsibility, for it means that in the end it is you who are fully responsible for everything that you experience in you life. However, it is also incredibly empowering, for as along as you maintain the notion that something or someone else is out there doing things to you, you effectively render yourself powerless to do anything about it.”
