1983: The Parental Deity and the One to Be Realized
The Way of Adidam is not a development of childish or conventional religion. When I speak of Godand I also use other terms than "God", but this is one of the forms of reference I useI am not speaking of this Parental Deity. The Parental God of childish religion cannot be proven. That One does not exist. The struggle to prove the existence of such a One is a false struggle. It is an expression of the common disease, the problem consciousness of threatened egoity.
This does not mean that people should all become like atheistic psychiatrists and throw religion awayalthough on the basis of a very intelligent "consideration" much of what is called "religion" should be thrown away, because it is just a consolation for rather childish egos. But there is much more to true religion than what is contained in these childish propositions. It is That Which goes beyond these childish propositions that I Call you to "consider" in the form of My Wisdom-Teaching and also in the evidence of the Great Tradition, or the total global inheritance of human culture.

"The Parental Deity and the One to Be Realized"
Real God Is The Undivisible Oneness Of Unbroken Light: The Nature of Real God and the nature of the cosmos. Why ultimate questions cannot be answered either by conventional religion or by science.
