    it's not ignorance, it's cooperation. I'm surprised you're opposed to this idea.
    How do you know other does not benefit from ths arrangement?

    You completely missed the point of bhakti. A bhakta is not far from God, nor is the bhakta not loved in return. For Vaishnavas nothing could be further from the truth than your statement.

    I am the Self ... seated in the hearts of all creatures. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings. Bhagavad Gita 10.20

    Always think of me, be devoted to me, worship me, and offer obeisance to me. Doing so, you will certainly come to me. This is my pledge to you, for you are very dear to me.

    Abandon all varieties of dharmas and simply surrender unto me alone. I shall liberate you from all
    [karmic and spiritual debts]; do not fear. Bhagavad Gita 18.65-66

    A being holier than I has not yet been discovered.
    You're operating from folklore. Defend your major premise -- God.

    I don't see where two people see things exactly the same.

    I don't see myself as light of the world. I think there are moral truthes that one can aspire to be holy.

    So in one respect people can bond to one truth. But beyond moral right, there are only individual natures, personalities, and perspectives.

    If God then I would hope for things beyond human comprehension, with infinite diversity bonded by one common truth of morals.

    I don't serve my gods. I build a relationship with them in order to better myself and in order to honor them. I also accept the sacredness within everyone including myself. The divine is everywhere even within the rain.

    Some pray to God until they announce that they are God, then they spend all their time talking to themselves.

    Then electric lights should make more of Allah. LEDs are more efficient Allahs. The sun must be a hot source of Allah. I wonder if it is possible to get too hot?

    The light of Allah grow within the muslim who seeking Allah. I can not speak for those who not see Allah from within them self.

    What if God actually is distinct from creatures?
