A Letter to Neale: Is there something ‘greater than God’?

Reader Question:

Dear Neale... In book 1 of CWG God says that just as we are the body of God, God is the body of another! This seems to say there is something greater than God. This does not seem to have been delved into further. Can you explain this further?

Neale Responds

Lynn, my reading of it does not produce the conclusion that "there is something greater than God," but rather, that God is greater than the something that we think God is.

Think of a particle of matter. How many times can you divide it before it disappears? The answer is: You cannot do this. You cannot cut any particle of matter in half until it goes away, until it is "nothing." The two remaining particles, after each division, may get smaller and smaller, but they can never be made to go away. You have just taken a peek into the nature of Infinity.

Now, the interesting news is that Infinity goes both ways. That is, it goes UP and well as DOWN. Or, better yet, I should say, AROUND. Infinity, it turns out, is a circle. That is what is meant by the statement, we are the body of God, and "God" (what we "think of" as "God") is part of the body of another!

There is a larger part of God, and an even Larger Part of God. Think of the circle again. There is a point where the smallest particle and the largest particle meet. Call that point 12 o'clock high. Here is where That Which Has Been Infinitely Divided meets That Which Has Never Been Divided, but has Always Been Whole. Can you imagine such a thing?

This is where the Truth of Existence exists. This is the All In All, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. Can you see it? Can you visualize this? Can you at least imagine it? Use your imagination. God is the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega, the Biggest and the Smaller, the NeitherAndBoth. Okay? Got it?

With Hugs & Pure Love,
