There is no God – it simply shows that man knows not why he is here. It simply shows man is helpless. It simply shows that man has no meaning available to him. By creating the idea of God he can believe in meaning, and he can live this futile life with the idea that somebody is looking after it.
There’s a proverb; To err is human and to forgive is divine. The people who can forgive can certainly be called divine. But the Existence, the Divine Source, does not need to forgive also, because it does not find anything wrong with its own creation.
The Self of a Buddha, one who had achieved cessation of attachment to the aggregates, could only be understood firsthand. One cannot convey enlightenment in words; one experiences it directly.
