We Are God – The Power Is Within Us


Book Brief

From childhood, we grow up to believe the solutions to the problems in our lives could only be found elsewhere with other people and situations and not where we are, within ourselves. When we are young, we look up to adults to resolve our problems, and when we grow up, we look up to even older people, specialists and consultants whom we regard as having the ‘unique’ abilities to provide us with the right solutions.

When the solutions to our problems depend on other people, they become the ones who think while all we do is look for money to pay them for thinking on our behalf. They give us solutions, and we give them money in return. However, since our problems in life are many, our pursuit of money also becomes insatiable. Our demands for money cause us to compete for it through employment, business establishment, economic activity and all the suffering that we have to allow in order to sustain the pursuit.

Competition for money results into personal, institutional and international conflicts; economic sabotage; geopolitical wars and the suffering that comes with them. The way of life that we have established around the pursuit of money and its aftermath is all made necessary only by our belief that as individuals, we are not equipped to resolve our own issues.

For generations we have eroded our natural ability to think to a point where all the solutions of the world depend on only a few, thereby creating a scarcity upon which all the problems of humanity are based. At the root of human suffering is the pursuit of money as the only way to access the various forms of happiness that makeup our livelihood. The reason we have equated human happiness to the need for money is because we cannot perceive any other way of realising this happiness outside of this money. This perceived limitation is a result of our persistent neglect of the mind which over time has diminished our ability to think.

The core message of this book is to illustrate the oneness of all things in existence by using easily accessible aspects of everyday life such as the oneness of a rose with the soil on which it grows; of a cup of tea on the table with the idea in the mind that made it necessary, or the activities of the body with the mind that wills them to happen. The aim of the illustration is to ultimately show the oneness of cause and effect, and how human suffering could be better resolved from a personal level where it is created.

This book details human existence in fourteen (14) chapters that include the history of human suffering; how we entrenched scarcity through the social contract; our search for the truth of who we are; our discovery of the true nature of reality; the true nature of a human being and the mind; restoring our minds and healing ourselves; transmuting suffering to happiness; the power of choice; and our superhumanity, among others.
