How do you know when you have experienced God as your own conscious being? The telltale signs are a sudden eruption of bliss, joy, happiness, love, and gratitude, along with a noetic clarity of what you are. It's a pure revelation of our own divine being. You know and feel that you are the substance as God, the same pure being, energy, love, bliss, and divine unity composing everything. Then you don't fret about theology or religious teachings because you know first hand that God is the substance of what is and you are that, and that everything you think and do and mentally construct apart from that bliss is how you build a house of sorrow, creating a world in which the bright radiance of being fades into the shadows of "normal" consciousness.
