    As posters would know, I am a true believer in the existence of God as Preserver and Creator. This is because I have now obtained proof of the existence of God.

    Through my interactions with God within and without I have also determined His true Nature with reference to how we humans live. It has come to my attention that God wishes every human being to be able to survive on this planet Earth without the interferences of States. It led to my philosophy of Existentialism.

    So States and God are in conflict.

    Further, it calls for the creation of a One World as a human objective.

    Any thoughts?

    One World as a human objective . . . how many Worlds was it before? I thought there ever was only the one.

    One World means humans united as a single unit under the governance of the United Nations without State-generated divisions under which all religions will be practiced by humans without State-organised persecution of believers.

    In my view it is possible to live a fully spiritual life within the system we have today where there are state governments in each country, but where i think the situation could be better is that Governmental politics are trying to control spiritual lifestyle.

    So Politics and spiritual lifestyle do not belong together, but can be lived separately.

    Do you believe that humanity should be one with every human being having rights the same? As a Buddhist you would appreciate that we must not harm any other human being or plant or animal. This is not possible with nation states where one state is richer than another and that wealth makes the State more powerful militarily to dominate other peoples and impose upon those people its values.

    In a perfect world we would be able to live 100% in peace and harmony, but since the world has become like it is, that option is no longer there, so in my view we must do our best to live as good we can. Personally i try to live my life my way, and not let government or state lead me in a direction i do not want to go. I do follow norwegian law, but if the law are changed to be morally wrong i will brake the norwegian law and live only by buddhst way of life.

    I am glad for you that Norwegian law is so tolerant of religious minorities. Not every State is the same.

    Perhaps all countries should become like Norway. It may be a model State that should be encouraged by the United Nations for copying across the world so that all the people of the world can experience religious freedom.

    It would be impossible for a body such as the United Nations to implement 'One World' values without considerable reforms to its structure and work so that the poor and downtrodden of humanity do not suffer. I thought that would be a Buddhist concern born of compassion for the weak.

    I did not mean everyone should think or do the way i do :)
    The borders are there for a reason politically, but for me if i stay in Norway or Brazil or India does not matter in the sense of feeling at home.

    And i dont think politically.

    I am very pleased that you have what it takes to live peacefully anywhere on Earth. Unfortunately not everyone has got time or need to become a Buddhist.They are too busy just surviving.:)

    True that Buddhism is not a path for everyone. But i try to learn some value from ever spiritual path, and i think calmness is a very good way to live in our stressfull wold.

    I dont say buddhism is the only true way :) it is the way i chose to live but others can be happy in othr ways too of course :)

    Quite so: I do want to change the way the world is organised as an Existentialist: this is what God wants me to do.:)

    You might believe all that to be true, but there is no evidence to substantiate that statement.

    What else would God want as the omni-God through natural evolution?

    Epic Beard Man, 19 minutes ago said:
    ''I haven't had that feeling of connection with God on that personal level in so long so you have to share how God revealed his nature to you and whether you were not suffering from some mental delusion, psychedelics, or something that altered your mind''

    My reply:
    The United Kingdom State has classified me as suffering from persistent delusional disorder; I am on antipsychotic and anti-depressant medication but they gave me explicit approval to post my beliefs in Religious Forums. I am 62 years of age and feel quite comfortable about myself.
