The Nature of Us and God: “We are God … all of it … choosing to be lesser at the same time … to magnify the glory of it all … to make it more fun….”


“Down the line, eventually, in some field of experiences that are part of larger experiences is us, each of us …. single points of observation … an ever changing organization of Experience aware of itself … existing within some mix of fields of larger experiences.”

“Individual waves on an ocean … single leaves on a tree….”

“Each of us is like a bringing together of pieces from the jigsaw puzzle of all experience, in a way that suits us, the magnet. We are fields — that’s another way of looking at it — we are fields overlapping and intermixing and potentially expanding, in an instant, to include all of Reality … and to have the experience of “God” … of being God.”

“With total freedom you might have something equivalent to being able to see yourself as the individual leaf, or yourself as the entire tree, alternately and by simply a change of focus.”

“Thus, we are All … and a part … alternately. But since there is no time, we are both All … and a part … simultaneously….”

“We are God. Each of us, all of it. We are a tiny subset of It All, each of us. We are essentially It All … God … but we choose to be lesser at the same time … to have the experience of both … to better magnify the glory of it all. Or, as I like to put it, to make it more fun….”

There Is No Sacred and Profane: “If Truth is God, then embracing what is, is equivalent to embracing God. No points for blind belief.”


“…there is no sacred or profane. God includes it all … the sacred and the profane. If Truth is God, then embracing what is, is equivalent to embracing God. No points for blind belief. Life and spirituality are not all about trying to negate, or deny, one aspect of Existence, to will it out of Existence and magnify another. God includes it all. And that includes sacred and profane.  

“…in larger awarenesses, those parts we call negative, like pain, are seen in larger contexts where they are put in a different, and positive, light. Where they magnify the glory of It All. Or … where they magnify the interest or adventure or the pleasure of it all, like salt to food … or the *fun* of it all … in the many ways that can be meant. And often, in ways that we are completely unable to see ahead of time. 

“All the same, becoming more inclusive, having more participation, if you will, means becoming more like that Good, that Mercy, that Compassion, that Love that we find that God is in Totality. 

“Yet, the fact that God is all these other good things is, looked at this way, a happy discovery. God is not what we need It to be … something that fills up the lacks or shortcomings we have … like some kind of fantasy to make us feel better. No. God is what is….”

“People really making changes in male-female relationships…are struggling…. Our point of departure is a psychotic culture”: Wounded Deer and Centaurs, on relationships


…on relationships, Sure It’s Hard….” to think that it is easy is probably to be an impostor (p. 134). He asserts that the people who are really making the changes in male-female relationships and becoming fuller human beings, you can expect, are struggling to do so . . . that it is a difficult process and takes time.”…. 


from the new book, Wounded Deer and Centaurs. an excerpt: ………

“Sure It’s Hard

“As most of us have come to realize who have been on this path for a while . . . who have been working at changing ourselves for a while . . . it is no easy task to change those very deep grids or programs. Rather, we discover that it requires a lot of work, dedication, and time.

“The Task Is Immense for Our Point of Departure Is a Psychotic Culture.

“The psychiatrist Theodore Isaac Rubin (1983), in his book on relationships titled One to One, points out that the divisive competitiveness and us-versus-them striving that we see predominating around us in Western culture is learned. He writes, “We compete, we fight wars, we are compulsively concerned about our hierarchical position relative to the next person, because we learn to be so through a psychotic culture passed on from one generation to the next” (p. 184).

“The point is that this is where we are coming from. Our point of departure is a psychotic culture or, as Erich Fromm (1955) put it, an “insane society.” Many of us are trying to reverse this violent and crazy trend, but it is understandable that it would be hard to make a 180-degree turn in orientation — from aggression to peace, from competition to cooperation, from fear to love. Therefore, our culture is gradually coming to the realization that we are involved in a difficult process, and understandably so. Our culture is starting to realize the immensity of the task we are undertaking in trying to change our inherited and deleterious patterns.

“To Think That It Is Easy Is Probably To Be an Impostor.”

“For example, Herb Goldberg (1983), a psychologist, points out in his book, The New Male-Female Relationship, especially in his section on “Transitions,” that to think that it is easy is probably to be an impostor (p. 134). He asserts that the people who are really making the changes in male-female relationships and becoming fuller human beings, you can expect, are struggling to do so . . . that it is a difficult process and takes time. In fact, Goldberg discusses at length his contention that real growth takes a lot of time and struggle, whereas “pseudo-growth” is the only kind of growing that occurs “overnight” and easily. (pp. 134-141)

“So not only does it take time, but we discover that it is hardly ever pleasurable. What most of us have discovered is that the path to bliss leads sometimes through despair and hopelessness. As Hesse (1965) described it in Demian: the bird, in pecking his way out of his shell, must destroy a world before discovering a new one. No, it is not often pleasant to confront some of the darkest things within ourselves, as we must do if we are not to continually project them onto others and onto the world around us…..

We Are Stardust Sorta: Our very own experience gives us hints on the mind of God, for we are one with Her

“In finding out we are God, the same substance as God — which is Experience — we realize that we actually might have an idea of God’s “motives” or “reasons,” for lack of better words, for manifesting as physical reality, as humans. For we share them. We value them, too … as being good.

“…with this new understanding … that we are the same substance as God … we know our very experience gives us hints at the motives and intentions of God, and other higher entities. 

“So, in fact, we can refer to him as funny, even. And to motives for existence that include fun, adventure, magnificence, and such. Interest, maybe. Who knows, maybe challenge?”

We distort the Divine with ideas like blasphemy, hell, punishment. God-Reality are actually more wonderful than fearful humans can comprehend.

“We have ideas like blasphemy because of the old and mistaken notions of hell but even more so of God being stern, fatherly, and punishing. We have notions of sin because of both of those. And we talk about fear of God as somehow being a good thing. 

“…because of our mistake we have cast the world — this one and the one “beyond” — in this oh-so-serious light….


“Well, all of that is wrong. As we now know. And in with those things that are legacies from those wrong, and unfortunately tragic, ideas is the idea of blasphemy. As we found out, God is bigger than we thought. Loving. All-Merciful. And God hardly cares about things like sins and blasphemy. Because it is not like God is some insecure childish king demanding nobody say anything disrespectful about Him….”

“Humans, in their evolution from planetmates, for survival advantages became crazier. And this is when we became more human…. It was a tradeoff….”

“Humans, in their evolution from planetmates, for survival advantages became crazier. And this is when we became more human…. It was a tradeoff. We became pretty good at surviving  … we managed to overpopulate this planet. But we’re crazed mother-fuckers … and we’re going to eliminate this planet and all the life on it” say planetmates in the Eighth Prasad.

“we are being embraced again by the Universe … the closer we get to Truth, the closer we get to God.”

“…with this new understanding we are being brought back into the fold of God. Like we were prodigal humans, thinking we were separate and alone, and now we are being embraced again by the Universe and being told that we are daughters and sons of it … of the same substance.”

“…we have learned that God is not separate from us, is not punishing, and hardly cares about making sure we pump up his Ego with trying to not say bad things about Her/Him or being sure we worship Her/Him in the right way, and such.”

“…the closer we get to Truth, the closer we get to God.”

“God is what is, and illusions or feel-good untruths actually cover Him, Her up. They conceal God….”

the roots of evil and fear and their transcendence … the necessary hero and the crisis of our times: Humor and the Divine Feminine

listener on youtube: “The world needs to hear this!! His words are like music to my ears...”

This is the latest interview with me. I talk a lot about my newly released book, Funny God: The Tao of Funny God and the Mind’s True Liberation as well as my soon to be released work, “Wounded Deer and Centaurs: The Necessary Hero and and the Prenatal Matrix of Human Events.” The transcendent approach to activism; the necessary hero and her/his qualities; the relation of activism to true spirituality; the oppression of women, feeling, and Nature, and its roots in civilization and patriarchal cultures; our inner Divinity; life; existence; and the roots of evil and fear and their transcendence are among the many topics covered.

What was said about it:

Kristina Asinus: “Our new episode with our dear friend Michael Adzema!!

“We discussed the divine dual polarities, sacred energy manifestations, the comedy and humor of life and much much more!”

Michael Adzema: “I just finished listening to it and i am delighted with how it came out… You guys managed to get the best and realest me to come out in it…. Yours and Stefan’s responses, comments, and questions were spot on as well…. I truly believe folks will get a lot out of listening to it, their spirits will be lifted, and they might feel an easing of the fear they carry around…

“as you know, that is why i do what i do…. to comfort and lighten up where i can… thank you to both of you for doing what you do….”

Maxine Downs: “I planned to listen for a half hr and the rest tomorrow but was enjoying it too much to stop!

“Great interview, Michael. your laugh is so infectious … how great is that….

“I love how you tell it how it is with your authentic self. fucking amazing.”

Juicy quotes from the book, Planetmates – The Great Reveal, by Michael Adzema (2014)

What the Planetmates say … for example….

“They say that an inter-being consciousness is possible that is almost like a coming together of heaven and Earth, and this being so, “something wonderful is going to happen.”“

“we get exactly why you have become the savage species you are. Indeed, we have a feeling in looking upon you very much the same as the way you view some of the most unfortunate of your own: “There but for the grace of God, go I.” “

“Planetmates here reveal the nature of Reality itself, describing it as Being-Awareness-Bliss, and they tell how humans separated from it.”

“They say we scorned “Eden,” rather than were ejected from it. Amazingly, they say that they are the helping, comforting beings we seek in the heavens, calling themselves our “angels in Nature.”“

“the Lucifer or Satan that we mythologize about is, in actuality, ourselves. It is humans who have defied the Divine and the natural order, in the throes of a most unnatural hubris, thinking ourselves equal to the Divine and above all else in Creation.”

“This is the sign on the road telling you that just before you lies the return home to the noble core within you.”

“The Planetmates ask if, with the apocalypse now looming as a result of our “evolution,” we might finally be able to see the lie of our illusions.”

planetmates come to warn, crppd 620pt

“the more twisted humans — those especially who were Controllers and Conformers — beat out more Authentic humans — which for reasons of women being closer to Nature included many of them.”

“in becoming increasingly dominating, sycophantic, and emotionless, we created an emptiness within and outside of us in our social environment a maze-like, fantastical panorama — likened most recently to a matrix. “

“This increasing depravity and separation from Nature is what accounts for human’s being capable of the current environmental crisis and with creating the possibility of planet death — as the result of human endeavor and “ingenuity” — at any moment.”

“The Controller/Conformer alliance dominated in the struggle humans created; it won out easily over the more Authentic humans. “

“With the beginnings of the concept of possession — of little importance prior to sedentary lifeways — Eden became owned….”

“With the focus on individual ownership, we began ourselves being enslaved by what we possessed.”

“Saying, “We watch as humans raise their dependent half-borns, very often using torture, violence, and all kinds of things that the other Earth Citizens would never imagine doing,” Planetmates tell us it is we who are the “animals” in Nature.”

“Consumed with baseless terrors and drowning in relentless mental machinations meant that humans would be less than ideal care-givers and would be neglectful of their children. We are “babies having babies,” they say.”

“they ask if now we possibly can see that this Ego, far from being the “evolution” we claim it to be, is actually arrayed against the survival or ourselves, both individually and as a species.”

“with sedentary ways, humans began wrestling their “angels”: Like Jacob wrestling the unrecognized divinity in the biblical account, in our switch to sedentary life we began confusing Divine Assistance with evil.”

“We forgot the beatific face of difficulties and struggles, and we saw the deprivations and pain of life as things to be avoided at all cost instead of as the blessings and guidance and instructions of Divinity.”

“this “domestication” of ourselves and Nature — this living in one place or sedentary living — has led to and is the root cause of the apocalyptic situation we are in at this very moment.”

“Planetmates say the “agrarian revolution” was the direst development and took the magic out of living. Cast out of the Now, we began living in Time, not Experience, and the richness of life faded. “

“Early humans were foragers and were still in harmony with Nature, but this tranquil time was destined to end.”

“Humans would stand out in Nature as suffering ape — the planetmate least able to partake of life’s enjoyment.”

“We became “human” and separate from all other Earth life at the point in our evolution when we had narrower pelvises, nine-month gestations, birth pain for mothers and newborns, and dependency on caregivers for survival for the first few years of life.”

“They delineate how bipedalism caused birth pain and how that is the beginning of our becoming so different from all of Nature … and so tragic, as they put it.”

“our minds are suffused and distracted with word symbols, which imprison and isolate us in a world of bookmarks of Reality, not Reality itself.”

“They say these dim reflections of What Is are often nonsensical and keep us blind to a wondrous Reality, which they and other beings do apprehend.”

“We, planetmates, are acting our role in this drama in coming to warn you. It is our part to reawaken your memory of your noble heritage.”

Planetmates fr cover, final, 620 pt

“magnifying life’s pain is what humans do that makes us unique in Nature. Yet that mistake, Planetmates say, is what holds the key to our survival … our redemption.”

“if you choose to be noble planetmates again and join with Nature in its defense, we will continue on in greater alliance together.”

“do you not see the Divine Providence you have turned your back on, resisted, even defied appearing here and now to welcome you home?”

“It is simple: You need to give the Universe a chance. Have faith that you can “stand” it, that the Universe does not contain things you cannot “stand,” things that would somehow “destroy” you or make you deranged.”

“Since Consciousness can never really “die” or be destroyed, there is nothing dire about the ending of a life; it is seen as simply another game beginning.”

“they embrace life or death as a gift, feeling that their most perfect joy is determined through either outcome and by a benevolence more knowledgeable than them as to which that would be.”

“The Planetmates say we did just as much “family farming” between the walls of our homes as we did in our fields … that our obsession to control had us raising our children in the same ignoble way we did crops and livestock.”

“They do not wish death, they say, but they risk it often in their immersion in a life experienced as fantastic and enjoyable”

“Planetmates explain that child abuse has been, until only recently, the norm for parenting of our young.”

“We say, “A man’s home is his castle.” In this we express how we would replace God Herself in the creation of our own personal Edens — in which everything has its reason for existing as being us.”

“The expulsion from Paradise that came with sedentary ways demanded increasingly complex, however vapid, entrancements — ritual and mores — of culture as compensation, however empty, for the loss. “

“According to our nonhuman brothers and sisters, humans secretly think, “There’s nothing really alive but me.”“

“the root of all our problems is our obsession to control and its resulting domination of everything around us.”

“We left behind the community and tribe life of our nomadic forebears for economic reasons that grew out of our sedentary-hierarchical societies.”

“We erected shrines to family equal to our terror of the uncontrolled.”

“what we place on high, use to boost our estimation of ourselves over all other living beings, and attribute to divine origins even is most often just a swirl of ritualistic craving and trickling satisfaction set in motion by keenly felt but supremely denied hurt.”

“Society and culture took the place of our missing connection with Nature; people became more “socialized” and “social” to make up for the sense of real belongingness and connection with Divinity they lost in the course of evolution. “

“Regarding evolution, they reiterate the way, with each dubious evolutionary “advance,” we enlarged our capacity for and appetite to control everything around us.”

“Humans are seen as sad, often laughable in the exactitude of their opposite- (of the Truth in every way imaginable) headedness, or, “wrong-gettedness.”“

“The Planetmates detail the characteristics of our perfectly unnatural Ego and show how our twin aberrations of controlling and conforming mark an ultimate break with the Divine and an ultimate opposite construct of being and consciousness. “

“It is nothing less than astonishing to see the outlines of current events in the patterns of social and economic interaction that began in prehistory, after the adoption of farming and the end of the nomadic lifestyle.”

“Storage of owned things created more greed — “unplanetmate-like greed” — along with an “unplanetmate-like” desire for more control, extending now beyond the planetmates of Nature to even those of our own species.”

“accumulating things led to controlling others”

“they have served us that way over the millennia in their roles as pets and “domesticated animals” — lives which they say they chose in their compassion, and pity, of the darkened lives we humans had created for ourselves”

“Planetmates were plucked from Nature’s perfect blueprint, set to our ends, driven by our brains crazed from early trauma. “

“when we were insensitive enough to begin killing fellow planetmates, it was only a matter of time before we were able to kill each other.”

“our end of innocence was brought about by ourselves; humans ejected themselves from “Eden.”“
