    In the beginning I was one with God "Oneness"
    Then.. I decided to separate,
    and that was the most foolish mistake I ever made,
    that because,
    after then,
    I didn't got that permanent-joyous-state of affair which I was enjoying in "Oneness" with him/God.

    Thus.. I have to say...
    I cannot blame God for this foolish mistake of mine because at that time "God" was helpless because of "Oneness" ["Me"+"God"]

    God is Good where it is,
    But, I am foolish where I am.

    After all.. I have to say...
    I need to return, Yes.

    Do you feel to return to God ? :)

    Peace be on you.
    According to Islam, meeting with God is required.

    [18:110] Those are they who disbelieve in the Signs of their Lord and in the meeting with Him. So their works are vain, and on the Day of Resurrection We shall give them no weight.

    [18:111] Say, ‘I am only a man like yourselves; but I have received the revelation that your God is only One God. So let him who hopes to meet his Lord do good deeds, and let him join no one in the worship of his Lord.’

    But this meeting is not like that one feels that one is in oneness with God....It comes like bliss, acceptance of prayers, signs, good deeds for others, remembrance of Beloved God and full manifestation will come in Hereafter.

    No. In my theology, it is impossible to leave the gods in the first place, and nor were we ever "one" with the gods.

    I don't believe there is a God we came from, much less return to.

    When I read the title of the thread I thought it was about the "end-time/rapture"

    Personally I doubt we were ever one with any God or Goddess

    That's a good question. Let me think about it and I'll get back to you.

    Been there, done that, burned the T-shirt. (Though I would highly recommend the trip. It's a bit of a show-stopper, for sure.)
    Eventually you do get over the whole twaddle about god though...

    I wholeheartedly agree with your view of God. However, I believe you and I never separated from God.

    No. I don't feel a return to God. (The Christian God?) Since I don't consider God a Creator nor a Being. I cannot return to "Him" because God already exists within me--He (I hate the pronoun, using it for convenience sake) is life (see my signature). Nichiren Buddhism, which I am starting to practice, defines God (life) as the Mystic Law. The Wisdom of our Buddha-nature is the mystic law and this Law defines the causes of our actions and the consequences both good and bad thereof. Causes and affects makes up life.

    I could not return to the Christian God because they see Christ as God; I disagree. I find it not personal to have a relationship with someone I have not met. However, having a relationship with life itself is so much more grand.
