ACIM: These are good, honest questions about seeing God, but they arise from the confusion of the ego mind. These are thoughts concerning the body; they are questions of the body being asked by the body.
Or “did Moses see God” in reality, or things like “is Jesus God?” And then, perhaps, “If He created me in His image, why doesn’t he simply appear before me, where I can see Him, so we can have a face-to-face conversation? He is capable of anything.”
We’ve all at some point raised the question about seeing God. You will have the similar or same ego questions that have risen in all of us at one time or another if you have not already. “Why does God send out signs or signals to us when He could simply speak to us plainly in our own given language?”
A kind of Daze of Sort
Our dream state in this instant, the nanosecond of the dream of life where projected bodily images make the world we see, is of our own image-making– not God’s.
Try to begin understanding that God does not extend Himself as a projected image, so seeing God does not come about. We’ve made our own image of God. While projections are necessary as the essence of any dream, He is not dreaming.
The fantasy of a body as who you are does not carry with it a mind. Minds do not have actual physical features, such as a mouth or vocal cords to speak through. We are the extension of God’s Mind, not of a body.
It’s all a dream, and that’s why we aren’t actually seeing God.
Remember, when humanity as a whole slipped into a dream of sort of being separate from Oneness, it was a separation of mind and not of body, but such as a quick day, so to speak. Seeing God and life in this world this way leads to more balance and our full potential
Sure, God did create us in His Likeness of Mind, but the body is our own self-made fantasy fashioned to hide our guilt from separating.
Miracles ask, “Could it be some dreams are kept, and others awakened from? A Course in Miracles then answers, “The choice is not between which dreams to keep, but only if you want to live in dreams or to awaken from them.”
This answers things like did Moses see God, or is Jesus God? Seeing God was Jesus entering the dream with messages to help us awaken.
Think of when you are in a daze or daydream of sort, or had a frightening thought, only for an instant, and someone gently nudges you to awaken.
