A disciple said to his master one day. “Master I am confused, because some say that there are many Gods and others say that there is only one God”.
The master looked at his disciple and chuckled. “It would be more accurate to say that there is only one you”.
The disciple looked confused and said. “But master that is not the answer I seek”.
The master replied: “If you believe that there are many Gods then that is correct, but if you believe that there is only one God or that there are no Gods then that is also correct.”
Now the disciple looked at his master in frustration and said. “But Master how can there be many Gods or one God or no Gods simultaneously, that is simply not logical”. Then the disciple bighted and said. “I think I understand now Master, what you mean is that I am God and this is my dream from which I must awaken”.
To this the Master replied. “I say this not because you manifest your reality but because you will only see and understand what you choose to believe”.
