When I refer to God, I'm talking about all of Reality. Try to get your head around the concept that God is EVERYTHING! There is no God and. The devil and hell were created by church leaders who wanted to scare people into joining or staying with the church. And Reality is creative and intelligent. Just look at Nature on this planet alone to see the vast diversity of life forms. It is obvious that this creative system has intelligence, purpose and direction.
Reality is also conscious. Man is part of this system, uniquely designed to observe and participate in the whole process. But we also have a mind that is capable of thinking about and evaluating what we experience. We can use our inherent thinking ability to imagine things that are not part of the System, not part of Reality or God. God gave us this power, and He/She did not kick us out of the Garden of Eden for using it. We IMAGINED ourselves out of the Garden. We used all of our senses, combined with imagination, and came to the conclusion that I, in this body, am different and separate from everything else. And oops, by the way, separate from God.
Reuniting with God is no more complicated than remembering that we can't really be separate from Reality. The key is the discovery that the sensations inside our bodies are of the same basic quality as those sensations outside of our bodies. And our true identity is not within the body, but is the expanded awareness of ALL of our experiences.
Take a moment to sit quietly and observe the sensations inside your skin, all of them. If you are patient, they will soon take on the same quality as those outside your body. Your identity will no longer be only with thoughts and sensations inside your mind and body. You will expand to identify with ALL your experiences and you will discover what Jesus meant when he said "I and my Father are one."
