Wonderful Living God

Thou art all that exists, a wonderful living God who is the only fact in the universe. 
This seems to many to be a terrible contradiction to the traditional God who lives behind a veil somewhere and whom nobody ever sees. 

The priests only give us an assurance that if we follow them, listen to their admonitions, and walk in the way they mark out for us -- then when we die, they will give us a passport to enable us to see the face of God! 
What are all these heaven ideas but simply modifications of this nonsensical priestcraft?
