The great deception was not that someone or some people thought they could be like God. The great deception is that people believe they are less than God, less powerful than God, somehow unworthy, made in God’s image yet cannot and should not function like God.

The greatest deception is that people have been stripped – not of their true nature, for it is still within them – but of the awareness and therefore, activation of their true nature.
