Did you know I just solved all the confusion about God. Who is God, Where is God, Why is God…all that. God is a verb. And you don’t see Verbs walking around, Verbs have no place to rest their head. Verbs have no qualities like red and blue. Verbs don’t even exist. Yet everything is a Verb. A verb is Action, and that which exists is action, is movement, is a flowing. But the flowing is not in time because in order to measure the flowing you have to be a noun. You have to stand outside of time as a river in order to measure it in time, and in order to be that you have to stand still as a noun. If you too are moving you can’t measure something else moving. Something has to be standing still as a noun in order to measure time. But if everything is a verb, or Impermanent, as the Buddha and Quantum Physics says, then there is no time.
God is a Verb. Therefore, God is everywhere. God dwells within you as You. You are both the same Verb. The same action. But we don’t realize this, we don’t get the joy and liberation of this, when we believe we are outside of Now as action measuring it with our tape measure of time. We have to be a noun in order to do that, and a noun is an abstraction.
Nouns are names we give things, and we lock things in a dictionary so we can know what things are, yet the butterfly is not the name butterfly. Nor are you your name or Facebook profile. You are a Verb, and therefore, you have no qualities and no definition. All you can say is I don’t know who I am. I am potential. God is potential. God and I are the same potential.
You see how we get all confused when we translate reality into nouns and grammar and then believe reality is our grammar. The English teachers are right. Mind your grammar. Become mindful of the limitations of your grammar.
When we say God is Now, that doesn’t mean God is a noun that is Now. That means God is what’s happening now as you. You are Now. And you are the only existence as Now because everything you experience is you experiencing experience. Where can you go that You are not. You are the center of the cosmos, that Center of Now. When you make this radical shift from standing outside of Now measuring it and weighing it to NOW as the unfolding center of creation, you are liberated from time. And time is the cause of our suffering. As the Buddha said, the cessation of suffering is the cessation of time. But we still have time to catch a bus.
When you make the radicle shift from God and you from being a noun to a verb, you eliminate the problem of sin and judgment—sin and judgement go together. When you are a verb, you can do wrong, but you can’t be held in it by judgment because you are a verb not a noun, and you can only define a noun and judge it good or bad. A verb does not sit still for judgment. The person you judge has already moved on. So judgment is always looking in the rear view mirror. But if you judge yourself as a noun, then that judgment holds you in the prison of the dictionary or Bible, pressed flat in an image for eternity. But when you shift from being a noun to a verb you are free from the dictionary of judgment. It is only when you yourself judge yourself to be a noun that you are condemned.
