We Are the Gods in Us

And in each corner of my soul there’s an altar to a different god.

Fernando Pessoa, Time’s Passage

All the gods, all the heavens, all the hells, are within you.

Joseph Campbell

The universe … is a machine for the making of gods.

Henri Bergson

 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

Psalm 82:6 KJB

  1. how does one account for the god of light and the god of darkness(cathars)? ye gods sounds like many . wouldn’t it be better to say our salvation ends up in a realm of pure light or pure consciousness? your term i believe is monad-soul plus noman(savior twin) join the god of light(monad) for eternity.

    1. There are at least four ways to approach religious or spiritual matters: the literal, the intellectual, the metaphorical, and the imaginal. The literal is the worst. The intellectual and metaphorical are superior but still limited. The dualistic gods of the Cathars (literal or metaphorical), pure consciousness, pure light, none of these are absolutes. The only absolute for you is that you are; for me that I am; for anyone that he or she is. And that makes us the gods.
      The domain of the gods is the imaginal. Do not remain stuck in philosophy alone; be a philosopher poet!
      I know this reply is unlikely to satisfy you, but four pages of answers or a second book to explain my first one would not do either. It would only raise more questions. The entirety cannot be grasped solely through intellectual or philosophical means. My writings are but a bridge to connect you to the ethereality. Once you get there, burn the book; you won’t need it anymore. Remember Thomas 22: “When you make the two (that is the soul and the angelic power within–noumen) a monad (togetherness), then you will enter the empyreal sovereignty. That’s all there is to know.
