God, Gods and Goddesses Part 3

In this episode Thom puts a fresh perspective on the phrase “Oh my God” and shows us how there is more to this term than meets the eye. Having given us a solid foundation to the subject in Part 1 and Part 2, Thom uses this episode to set us up for our own personal experience.He explains that while there are many commonalities of archetypes across cultures, each of us shapes our experiences of “god” based on our own personal model of the world.This even includes those that have the view that there is no such thing as a god or a deity.Importantly, he explains that our own experience will be based on our own observations rather than requiring faith of any sort. It’s a paradigm that will provide relief for those who have struggled to make doctrines fit their experience. In the final analysis, you get to choose your own adventure, and there’s no hurry to come to a conclusion one way or another.Episode highlights: [00:40] Experiencing the Celestial Layer[02:15] Sleeping, Dreaming, Waking [03:02] Turiya - The Fourth State [05:10] Colorfast Consciousness [06:43] Enlightenment Begins [09:29] Archetypes of Experience Emerge [11:32] God Consciousness [13:39] See No Evil [17:00] Observation Based vs Faith Based [18:44] A World of Beings [20:17] Normalizing Capability [22:29] Grades of Experience [23:57] Cultural Biases Constructing Deities [25:33] Lakshmi and Saraswati [27:37] Surya AKA Apollo [29:30] Universal and Undeniable Archetypes [31:10] Same Same But Different [32:42] Unity Consciousness [34:10] Sally From Kansas City [35:04] Ishwara - Supreme Being [36:03] Ishta Devata [37:51] Your Call to Action [38:33] That Dusty Old Podcast [39:56] The Pinnacle of Human Development [41:35] Choose Your Own Adventure [43:11] What Kind of Universe Do You Want? Useful Links: info@thomknoles.com https://thomknoles.com/https://www.instagram.com/thethomknoles/https://www.facebook.com/thethomknoleshttps://www.youtube.com/c/thomknoles https://thomknoles.com/ask-thom-anything/
