All gods are local gods. We have lost access to the Universal One that has no second. The God that has no second is the One because you are not excluded. The local gods are all gods of dualism: you and God are absolutely separate, but you can have a nice relationship through Jesus. But you will never be able to say like Jesus: I and the Father are One. If you say that you are going to get crucified.
When you and the Father are One, there is nobody there! For that mystical experience of Oneness, your separate sell is blown out. Local gods don’t have a stairway to that. You have to stay on the main floor of the social church. There is no pulldown stairway to the attic. But you sense there is something hidden, something above the ceiling, but you can’t find it because if you question, the church turns on you as a heretic.
