I suppose it cannot possibly be--since we are part of God and He of us...but I wonder if this idea about God knowing every thought we think is really true. Can it be? How could it be accomplished? There are over 7 billion people on this planet!

Pretty mind boggling isn't it, but that's why He is the creator and we are only aspects of him. Ever watched X Men and Charles Xavier, a mere tip of the iceberg ;-) Imagine Jai , if you are considering only the 7 billion,and the plants,animal and minerals here, what about all the other inhabited planets and their residents . Source is indeed the Supreme Being ♥♥♥

He sees you when you're sleeping

He knows when you're awake

He knows if you've been bad or good

So be good for goodness sake

Goodness sake

I believe He knows "everything", otherwise He cannot be omniscient. A god that is not omniscient cannot be God at all. God is "all knowing" and that includes the privacy of our mind. Living in holy life includes purity in what we think and in our motive. These two are the most private of ourselves. No man so far can invade us on what we think. But God can see what we think. He even forbid us to commit lust to someone in our mind because it is equivalent to an act. There are also accounts in the life of Jesus where He read the minds of those who wish to question His teachings.

It's funny you say no man so far can invade us on what we think. I believe this is true, too, but I have a collection of external "voices" I hear, which know exactly what I am thinking. I sometimes wish they didn't.

(01 Apr '13, 06:20) SR7

I don't have any experience of voices in my head, not even from God that I desire. With your experience, did you verify that they are from physical man? Man like we encounter everyday in the street?

(01 Apr '13, 06:34) Romel

They're not inside my head; they're outside my head. But: no, the voices cannot prove to me they are real, and they never speak of their life in the real world. I don't know if they're generated by my mind, or if they're generated by the universe/quantum field of possibility.

"He even forbid us to commit lust to someone in our mind because it is equivalent to an act" I'm sure glad I don't share your beliefs & I doubt very much a loving God shares your beliefs either. Peace.

@ele, the passage in the Bible (Matthew 5:28) cross my mind with that. If it will be used to judge against me then I am liable to it many times daily until now. I just raise the point that God can identify what is in our mind.

(01 Apr '13, 08:50) Romel

@ele @Romel-I think Jesus was trying to make the point that thinking comes before action. This we know from the LOA. His solution was too extreme for me- I am not going to cut my eye out if I see a hunky guy- but He made a good point about thinking coming before real action. Hope this helps you both! <3 Jai

@Jai Do you recall President Carter's Playboy interview - "I secretly lusted in my heart" . I thought this s issue was settled back in the 70's; it was for me. @Romel Perhaps I was being a bit sensitive; thought maybe you were judging me for lusting after dear sweet innocent ru bis . If I'm wrong & there really is a hell, I'll be in fine company.

Outrageous flirting could be construed by some as lusting; however I'm absolutely not committing adultery. Girls just wanna have fun. I admit it, I was having a lot of fun.

"I've looked on many women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times. God knows I will do this and forgives me." ~~ James Earl Carter, Jr. 39th President of the United States; winner of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize

where within the hierarchy
of fully conscious beings
do we stop our search for god
and anthropomorphise

our thoughts and actions maybe
scribed into the akasic
record of our world and
individual soul memory

Of course he knows everything. he knows people heart and minds.


Even in this world are things really private? someone that know you do not need to ask you question to get answer. he knows your heart and mind he knows your pattern. so as soon as something change he take notice of it and can guess what it is pretty acurely.so if a son of man in this world can do this.imagine what your holy father God can do.He created everything that exist,is awareness is every where from the beguinning to the end eternal.Verily verily i tell you unless one is born of the water and spirit he cannot understand this,and will have to imagine and understand the concept.unly a son of man that went to the kingdom and came back from the kingdom can trully understand what it means because he experience it with is brother and sister or with a pure heart with the father.So do not be surprise at my saying.We speak of what we know and report what we have seen.If you do not believe what we say about this world,how will you ever believe us when we speak about heaven.

You do not have to look very far to see that everything is connected and that things are not as private or hidden that you think. How do they catch criminal in this world?They investigate and find information that are left by the criminal.That is how they find them and can know what as happen. If a son of man in this world is able to do those things,how much more can your Holy father in heaven do.Is not a parent aware of the child? When the parent send the child to school or to play in a sand square is he not yet aware of the children?I am telling you the truth.If this is true in this world it is even more true and greather in the next world.

So let there be light,Be the light that you can be,experience and enjoy.

Yup. We are all energy and God is All energy combined acting as ONE (mind), sort of like how you are actually billions of cells, except God has FULL consciousness of ALL going on NOW. God is the SUM of ALL energy acting as ONE, just like The Body is the SUM of ALL cells acting as ONE (body).

No, there really is only the illusion of privacy (Separation).

If we think of frequency we see there are everything from X-rays To Gamma rays, Infra-red, to Ultra-violet, to sound waves. All of these can be called separate but as well be called The Spectrum.

All frequency blending into each other as parts of the whole. but can not really be broken into parts since they blend into each other. You can't really tell where one ends and one begins.

If these frequencies were thoughts, (I believe that these are part of the spectrum) then nothing is separate. If all is this one spectrum, then there can be no separation and hence nothing can be hidden but only seem to be so.

I believe God is that infinite spectrum of everything.

If a man is in a hall of miroir and see is reflection he know it is him. if someone else comes in that hall of miroir he knows that it is someone else make in is likeness.Yet for God he is light(spirit)and water(soul)is hall of miroir is in globing everything that exist.is pulse and awareness is like a golden wave that spread in every direction.And every child make in is image use that light to communicate to each other.When the son of man will go above he will know this.And when the son of man-

comes down from heaven he will know this.Yet no one can accept is testimony.Do not be surprise at my saying. gold refined in the fire rev.3.18

(01 Apr '13, 23:42) white tiger

Yes, because there is ultimately only one consciousness. Yes there "seems" to be 7 billion of us. But there is really only ONE.

There is "NOTHING " but God in this world or any other.

"He is before all things and in Him "ALL THINGS CONSIST"

So no, theres nothing private.There cant be .
