God Is A Big Illusion We Made Up

I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. ~ Frank Lloyd Wright, American architect and writer

If you read our last week’s post, You and God Have An Eternal Connection, you may be puzzled by this post’s title. In fact, you may think I’ve lost my mind.

Let me explain.

Today I was at my desk wondering what we were going to write about for this week’s post. Then I remembered a close friend from long ago. She didn’t believe in God, and did her best to convince me to ditch my beliefs.

Well, I had my own private doubts about the existence of a divine being, even though my family and I were all Roman Catholic. But I was afraid not to believe in God. I’d probably go to hell then.

As I was thinking about all this today, I heard a soft, distant voice. It said, “Your friend was right—God is an illusion you made up.”

As I mulled that one over, I realized, at this point in my life, I agreed with that voice (and my old friend).


Some of you, perhaps many, grew up with this idea of God as some majestic, white-bearded being in the clouds who ruled the universe with an iron fist.

This God could be kind and loving, or angry and vengeful. It depended on his mood, and your behavior.

If you did anything to displease him, you could be destined for the eternal fires of hell. Or, at the very least, a torturous, albeit temporary, imprisonment in purgatory.

Johnny certainly grew up believing all that, and many of you may have too.

It’s all an illusion the human race and its institutions collectively conjured up for various reasons. Among those reasons were exerting control over others and getting them to do the authorities’ bidding.

As anyone reading this knows, that’s all nonsense or, as you might say, bullshit. It’s not real. It never was. It’s all a big illusion.

One of our favorite ways of describing God (or Goddess or divinity or whatever word you prefer) is “all that is.” God is literally all that exists throughout the entire universe. God is the source of all you consider good and desirable—peace, joy, love, well-being, abundance and so on.

All you consider evil—greed, hatred, war, etc.—is a projection, an illusion you have created. None of it is real.

We could go on and on about this subject, but we won’t.

Simply, this is our “credo,” if you will:
God is literally all that is. That includes you, all living beings, all so-called inanimate objects, and so on. Since God is good, all that is is good. Nothing else exists.

It’s that simple.

All you consider evil is your projection onto the world “out there” from within you, or from what you imagine to be within you.

This is changing today, but most of you have imagined yourselves flawed and, yes, evil. So you see that in the world all around. But you’re seeing it only because you’ve projected it “out there.” And, of course, what you see “out there” is only a mirror, not a fact.

As someone once said, God made humans in his own image, and humans returned the favor. That God humans created is the big illusion. It’s time to let it go.


I’m pretty sure this short video,  God Does Not Exist, with the legendary physicist, Stephen Hawking, will not please everyone. But it is thought-provoking.

In the early 1980s, John took a spiritual development course and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides. 
Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.” Source
