Did one or many gods create Earth?

It is commonly believed by followers of monotheistic religions that the original being (God /Creator) who began all processes of creation single-handedly created the Earth and all life upon it.  This is a simple belief that satisfies many but the reality is we have no way of knowing the truth of this matter unless we have memory of this event occurring- which few claim to have.

In reality, there is no reason to believe that the original Creator is responsible for every individual act of creativity that has occurred since the original movement from formless being into the creation of worlds.  Clearly, humans are also creative beings, responsible for having a dramatic effect on the world around them, and so, similarly, it is possible that the original Creator may have given birth to additional creative beings who went on to create other beings, worlds, and forms of life to inhabit these worlds.  In other words, the original Creator may have delegated further creation to a variety of beings that "He" created.

We can channel the avenues life takes-

but we can’t create it!

Is God in control of the world?

Clearly, if mankind has free will - which I believe* we do - then an external God is not in control of the world.  That means we can't thank or blame a God for the actions undertaken by man.

Does this mean anything goes?  Yes, I believe it does, as the bloody history of mankind shows.

The benefit of high pitch sounds in nature

There are high pitch sounds heard in nature that you don’t hear when you are in a building.  These sounds come from wind in the trees and grass, insect and bird song, the sound of running water and crashing waves.  These high pitched sounds help to keep the mind balanced and our mood lifted and are one of the benefits of spending time outdoors in natural places.

How paradise on Earth will be created

I believe paradise on earth will only be created when every man and woman grows in love and awareness to the point where their thoughts and actions promote and contribute to life rather than detracting from it and destroying it.

I don't believe paradise will be achieved through the descent to Earth of some supernatural being from the heavens.  This would still leave the problem of unenlightened humanity.  For it would take more than the appearance of one person to suddenly enlighten everybody, I believe.  After all, the original appearance of Christ and Buddha did not result in the sudden enlightenment of all humanity so why would a reappearance of either now be any different?

The Law of Attraction

Star Wars Episode 2

The way to promote something in your own life is by focusing on it. This will cause it to grow in influence in your experience.

This is an expression of the "Law of Attraction" and is how all "good" (wanted) and "bad" (unwanted) things are brought into our experience.

All things grow under the influence of our attention and therefore it behooves us to focus on the things we desire to see happen if we wish to live a happy life.
