Would you like to be God?

Written by Alan Tutt

A common fantasy is to haverepparttar Powers and Knowledge of God, yet retain one's individuality. To be capable of knowing everything and doing anything. What possibilities!

Yet there are many who feel that this is extremely egotistical and megalomaniacal. How dare you think that you could be God! That's not your place. Why should you have special abilities thatrepparttar 122391 rest of us do not!

And then there are those who's response is: "I wouldn't wantrepparttar 122392 responsibilities." To be God means to have to take care of everything in existence, to make sure that things run smoothly and come outrepparttar 122393 right way.

Where do you fit into this debate? Does any of these positions hold more weight thanrepparttar 122394 others? Is it possible that more than one of these positions could co-exist with each other?

There is an interesting theory that I came up with many years ago which seems to explain a lot of things. I was trying to findrepparttar 122395 Power behind various religions and systems of magick. Christians believed that Jehovah was God and that He answered prayers according to His Plan. The Biblical Christ seemed to teach that anyone with Faith could get anything that was asked for as long asrepparttar 122396 person Believed. (Notice that Christ did not say you had to believe in Him or in God, simply that you had to believe that you would get what you asked for. If you care to readrepparttar 122397 New Testament, and actually readrepparttar 122398 words onrepparttar 122399 page, you will see that critical distinction.) The Magick-workers felt thatrepparttar 122400 Power was as natural as electricity and just as available to anyone who cared to learn it's secrets. Wiccans and other Pagans believed that there are many Gods, and that each will answer prayers or not according to their moods and purposes.

In all ofrepparttar 122401 various teachings, there seemed to be only one connecting thread. Faith. Belief. Believe that this thing you're doing will accomplishrepparttar 122402 thing you want, and it will be done for you. Whetherrepparttar 122403 thing you do is prayer to a higher being, or speaking strange words while performing ritualistic rites, or simply repeating to yourself an affirmation ofrepparttar 122404 thing you want as being true. As long as you believe in what you're doing, it will work.

When I finally discovered this commonality, my next question was "What do I believe will work?" I had studied so much, so many different things, and had read success stories in each one. And if it didn't matter what I did, then what could I do that I would believe in? I have since found that it is just as easy to make a decision to have a certain result, andrepparttar 122405 result will come about, without any action being performed. This doesn't happen often, as my mind makes many decisions, and not all of them produce results (Thankfully!)

Overrepparttar 122406 years, I developed a system that worked well for me. I even shared it with several of my close friends andrepparttar 122407 system worked for them as well. The system is simple, with support from logic, and ties to many religious beliefs. This system is more than a collection of techniques to create change, such as a magickal system would be, yet it does not impose a dogma of beliefs such as a religion. This system is built upon a small set of core beliefs upon which a large system of philosophy resides, which in turn supports several techniques for effecting change. This system is calledrepparttar 122408 Keys To Power.
