THE NEW GOD PARADIGM: “I AM—GOD IS—WE ARE ONE” 1



Learning Through ContemplatonA paradigm is a model, a pattern, or an archetypal ideal of something in form, experience, or concept. In a spiritual context, it is a pattern of beliefs, images, and practices that form inner and outer thoughts, words, and actions. Almost by definition, a religious paradigm is limited, for it sets forth a standardized depiction of inner and outer experiences that conform to the framer’s beliefs and accepted images.

 The New Spiritual Paradigm is a simple yet profound statement of who we are, our connection with the infinite and how these two realities and the force that holds them together interact.  I AM, GOD IS, WE ARE ONE expresses this reality. When once embraced, this places the individual on a path of consciousness expansion and inner experience that reveals the deeper meaning of this declaration of life and existence.

We need such a guiding life paradigm because there are no absolutes within the unbounded scope of ALL THAT IS (God). Instead, there is infinite choice, for we are creative beings without limits. We are not only reflective of God’s Inner Nature, but more importantly, we carry a spark of God’s Sacred Fire, the source of Divine Love of all Creation. But the ONE (God),  did not stop there, for this, its greatest creation, was also endowed with a unique “Personality” as different as the snowflakes are different, but necessary as an aspect of differentiation and to experience aspects of its manifold personalities. Still not complete with its creation, it chose to place a part of itself within and around our being, embodying the highest standards of ITS Creation Concept: Perfection and Purity.  This is the Divine “I AM” a part of God that lies within each person, expressing the perfection and purity that inexorably guides us to pursue higher goals and deeper understandings of our reality.
