Who Am I? (Part One)
I was recently asked the following question
As godbeings (also called the Original Ones), are we the same as Lord Shiva? As you know, Shiva is considered the Supreme God who creates, protects and transforms the universe, according to the Hindus.
Understanding the Relationship Between the Supreme Creator and the Individual Creations
The Infinite Creator – whether we call this Supreme Source of life The Lord Shiva, Allah, God, Yahweh, The Spirit That Moves Through All Things, or by any other name – is that which has created the cosmos and all life in it. To understand what individuated beings (including the Original Ones) are in relation to the Infinite Source of life – the One Life – imagine the Infinite One Being observing itself in a mirror (its "creation") that shatters into many pieces (the individuated lifeforms).✶
There is still only one Being in existence — the Source of all life.
Understanding the Difference Between Humans and the Original Ones
To understand the difference between humans and Original Ones, imagine the shattered mirror fragments: each piece reflects the Infinite's face, but some smaller fragments (humans) reflect only a small part and some larger pieces of the mirror (the Original Ones — godbeings among men) reflect larger pieces of the Infinite's face. But there is still only one Infinite Being in existence.
