What is God and understanding God as ALL-that-is
An analogy to help you understand God as ALL-that-is
People have difficulty with the technical concepts around what God is; this analogy will help you understand God as ALL-that-is.
A human is a single being, but when you zoom in closer, you quickly realize that the human body is nothing more than a massive collection of billions of cells working in unified harmony.
Each cell contains the whole of the larger being, in that it contains DNA and RNA, and therefore could be used to clone a complete new body.
So each cell is a miniature but complete and separated version or image of the whole human being.
Each cell has its own place and purpose though, and each type of cell is crucial to the functioning of the whole human being.
Blood cells are as important as nerve, liver, bone and eye cells. Eye cells mean nothing without a brain to process the info, and the brain can't function without the nutrients from blood cells.
At the same time, when you look at the whole system together, it creates a larger consciousness - the human being.
This larger consciousness is greater than the sum of its parts, and no individual cell is able to represent the whole human being created by all the cells working together.
Now imagine the cells are souls, and the human is God.
Each soul contains a complete holographic image of God, and has its place and purpose.
When you add up all those pieces of soul together, it creates a consciousness called God that is greater than the sum of the parts.
Sometimes that consciousness of God gives itself a smaller human soul, body or identity in order to make it easier for us to interact with it.
It's like you could condense your mind into a single blood cell to go inside your body and talk to each individual cell.
The body of God includes everything you see, from rocks to trees, to emotion, animals and more.
Everything is made of God, the same way each cell in your body is made of you, even though liver cells are differentiated from blood cells and neurons.
