what i don't understand (and maybe you guys can help me) how buddhists can consider themselves detatched from everything, then how do they have a god? isn't impossible to believe in a god and be 'detatched' from that god at the same time?|
to me, it seems silly to consider someone unattatched by anything when they still have a sense of something superior than them.
if there is something superior than them (god), then the yin yang says that there must be something inferior, whether it be something/someone else, or even themselves.
if things naturally fall within harmony, then there shouldn't be anything superior or inferior to anything else, even if it is a god.
this brings about my theory that if everything is equal, then the only way for there to be a god (which i most definately believe in), is for us to be god.
even if god is an all-powerful, content, supreme being, there is one thing he can never have: experience of life.
so, he sends pieces of himself, like crumbs off of a cookie, or rain from the clouds, to earth (the universe as we know it), and bringing about life. all forms of life, god is the force that propells them to live. we have a body and brain, but our minds are the drops of god.
in death, we return to god.
god must be heaven then..
i don't know if this theory has been thought of.. if it has, can anyone tell me or link me to where i can find more detailed writings of it?
