G-d is Consciousness

G-d is consciousness.

He is not a consciousness that exists solely within the human mind, allowing it to tell the difference between right and wrong.

For if that consciousness only existed within the human mind and not externally, then even the notions of right and wrong would be subjective manifestations of the mind.

Buddhism’s philosophy attests to this assumption when it states that consciousness itself is an illusion of existence, and if consciousness is an illusion, then any form of consciousness is an illusion, be it right, wrong, good, evil, or truth.

Indeed, Buddhism’s philosophy states that right, wrong, and truth are subjective realities, perceived through the prism of human awareness, which give the human being the false sense of his own existence.

It is Nirvana that frees the individual from the falsehood of his perceived existence.

Therefore, any notion of truth is only connected to an external consciousness, and any purpose emanating forth into the human sphere is rooted in the truth connected to this external consciousness.

This external consciousness is G-d, and He is therefore real.
