God is the mechanism through which you are reflected back upon yourself. He does not determine what you experience, you do, through how you choose to manifest your consciousness. You have consciousness, which could be called your innate Godly nature(what is referred to by us being “made in God’s image”). You choose to manifest this consciousness through thoughts, words, and actions. However you choose to manifest your consciousness, it is sent out to the mirror that is “God,” and it is reflected back into your experience. This is why, in a way, we are God, because we create, yet there is still “God,” for he is the mechanism which allows us to experience our creations.

Jesus himself alluded to this concept(And I am not implying anything about supporting Christianity. I am just referencing commonly accepted scripture to help drive home the point). He said not to judge, lest you be judged. As you judge, so too will you be judged. This is an allusion to this concept. How you judge is how you are choosing to manifest your consciousness, in terms of judgement. God is a mirror, and as you send out that judgement, by choice, it is reflected by God, and is sent back to you. This is also the meaning of treat others how you would want to be treated. How you choose to manifest your consciousness in terms of how you treat others is sent into the great mirror, God, and is reflected back at you and will determine how you are treated.
