I was in a discussion with an Atheist and I was explaining my understanding of "God" and they sent me this. And it is EXACTLY how I understand God. We come from the Fire. Moses saw it as a burning bush, and the burning bush was afire yet not consumed by the fire. Everything is made of that same fire. At least I know "I AM" (so are you) Turn the World around .....

The Christian Teaching is correct : Jesus is God. The Jewish Teaching is correct : Jesus was a rabbi. The Muslim Teaching is correct : Jesus was a prophet. How can all 3 be correct ?

The Hindu Upanishad Teaches : Everything is Brahman. The One supreme, universal Spirit (God=Allah=HaShem=ALL)
The plurality we perceive, we experience, we objectify is not "hiding" or "covering" Brahman - it IS verily Brahman.
sarvam khalvidam brahma
Every leaf, every drop of water, every cloud in the sky, every object, animate and inanimate, is all Brahman.
Whatever you perceive at any time at any place is only Brahman and nothing but Brahman. אין עוד מלבדו
In the immortal verse from the mANDUkya upaniShat:
turIya is not that which is conscious of the inner (subjective) world, nor that which is conscious of the outer (objective) world, nor that which is conscious of both, nor that which is a mass of consciousness. It is not simple consciousness nor is It unconsciousness. It is unperceived, unrelated, incomprehensible, uninferable, unthinkable and indescribable. The essence of the Consciousness manifesting as the self in the three states, It is the cessation of all phenomena; It is all peace, all bliss and non-dual. This is what is known as the Fourth (turIya). This is the Atman and this has to be known.
So Jesus was a jewish rabbi prophet who mysteriously understood the teaching of the Hindu Upanishad and said "Before ABrahm ...I AM (Yod-heh)" (John 8:58) and the Kingdom of God is also within YOU. - Luke 17:21
Peace and Peace also be with You. Namaste. Ein od Milvado. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahman
