An Aspect of the Expanding Universe

As mentioned in my previous blog, scientists tell us that the Universe is expanding. We now know that this concept only makes sense in the metaphysical sense. If they define all reality as Consciousness, then they are right. Our consciousness is expanding, probably at the speed of light, and more likely much, much faster.
Even then, this is not true of all of us. Some of us still regard that the Universe is solid; as moving around in circles. They regard atoms as solid particles—rather than bundles of energy that occupy mostly empty space. See my other blogs on this subject.
There are two ways to define the universe: real and imaginary. If you rely on your senses, then the imaginary universe will sate your need for reality. If you prefer the truth, no matter how inconvenient, then the Real Universe is nothing more than a State of Consciousness. This state, or condition, continues to expand. Although the imaginary or phenomenal universe might collapse upon itself, it would not be due to black matter, black energy, or any other nonsense invented by scientists to make their equations work. It would happen due to the fluctuations in our consciousness.
The Real Universe, the universe that finds its expression through the sum total of our individualizations of awareness, cannot collapse. To do so would be to deny the concept of infinity. As the purpose of individualization is self-knowledge, and that which we pursue is infinite, we shall never reach the end of our quest. Consciousness is characterized by an ever-receding horizon.
In that sense, Universe is, and always will be—infinite.
For the imaginary, or phenomenal, universe to collapse we’d all have to withdraw our individuality and merge with the Original Source, that some people call God. Until then, those few who choose to do so, periodically, will enrich the eternal fabric of omnipresent Consciousness and help other units of consciousness advance on their eternal journey.
Yes, this may happen to some of us.
But to imagine that within the infinite phenomenal universe, populated with near-infinite number of intelligent species, all of us (and ‘them’) would reach the awareness of totality of our potential hovering in the near-infinity of space… well, to me this would be absurd.
What do you think?
In my view we, the individualized fragments of the Single Consciousness will continue on our endless exploration of our Infinite Potential. No wonder the ancient prophets called us gods. Enjoy the trip!
Isn’t it fun?

The journey we call life. I examine some of the steps on this endless trek in my Winston Trilogy. You might enjoy all of it. Or in part. It’s up to you. Let me know.

The Centripetal Force

 [Welcome back from Sochi]

People regard love as an emotion. It is true that love can be expressed in emotional terms, but reaches deep within the essence that is often ignored by many.
When our world began, it was no more than an idea. Gradually it took shape and increased in diversity. After billions of years we have achieved relative complexity, which we measure in atoms and subatomic particles. Lately, scientists are talking in terms of quantum computers that, thanks to their vastly increased complexity and thus the apparently inevitable miniaturization, will be able to perform countless calculations simultaneously, millions of times faster than our present Turing model.
Due to this shrinking of the components, complexity increases as we drift farther and farther apart from the original Singularity.

This is where love comes in. In phenomenal universe love is the centripetal force that holds us together. Even as it binds men with women, with children, sometimes nations or even species to each other, so the Earth would fly off into the coldness of outer space without it. Likewise we, creatures of mind and emotions, would drift away from our original purpose.
We must never forget that the physical, phenomenal world is little more than a stopping station for us, people aware of their purpose, to experience the thrill of becoming, and add our experiences to the infinite storehouse of the Universal Mind. We, of course, are the atoms, endowed with self-awareness, which combine to create this Mind that reaches above and beyond the limitations of the material universe.
Not one of us is redundant, unnecessary or superfluous. If we do not meet our obligations and add our assigned tasks to the totality of the Mind, we shall continue to return and inhabit physical bodies, until our unique purpose is done. Only then we shall have a choice to remain a conscious part of the Whole, or to return to the phenomenal universe to help others meet their tasks.
We can choose to do so forever, or for a few billion earthly years until the centripetal force pulls us back to the place of our origin.
All this concerns our consciousness, our mind. It has nothing to do with our physical bodies, with the phenomenal universe. And It, the Universe of our thoughts, continues to expand at ever increasing velocity.

For now, and in the foreseeable future, we shall continue to expand our awareness of the true reality. Yet, it seems, the farther we drift from the Original Source, the stronger will be the pull of the centripetal force. Our “phenomenal” scientists, unable to accept anything that cannot be perceived with their physical senses, call it the “big bang”. They forget that before the “big bang” there was no space, no time, no matter, not even energy. Only Oneness.
And the inherent force of Love.
If interested, there is more on the subject in my Beyond Religion Series. You might enjoy them.

Creating True Reality

The truth about creating reality is stranger than fiction. Unless we accept that the phenomenal world is not real, it doesn’t make sense. And yet…
For many years I practiced architecture. After some years as design architect, I realized that well before I transferred my thoughts and images onto paper (later a computer screen), the building already took shape in my mind. The drawings, let alone the actual construction of the building, (though hard work) were little more than “phenomenal” after-thoughts. The real building, the actual creative act, had already taken place in my mind, my imagination.
Sometimes I saw, with my mind’s eye, the building already populated, a busy beehive, where fragments of my imagination went about their daily business. Such is the beauty of being an architect. The same is true of sculptors, composers, all artists.
Thus the reality of the building had not been the eventual “brick and mortar” but the image that took place in my mind. One day, in another fragment of the Eternal Now I shall create planets, galaxies, perhaps universes—all the intangible, ephemeral yet indestructible realities of my consciousness. Halfway through the Winston Trilogy, my heroes do just that.

The point I am making is that everything that is real, that is indestructible, is created and remains forever within our consciousness. There lies the source, the creation and the fulfillment. It is the only reality that is indestructible, that remains forever real. Imaginary years will pass, the buildings will crumble, yet the image created in our minds remains forever.
This is how heaven is made.
We start with an idea. Then light of our knowledge shines upon it. Our mind begins its peregrinations and is finally ignited by the wonder of our imagination. This, and this alone is the creative act. The rest is just a means of sharing our thoughts with others, that they may also use them, derive pleasure from them, become enriched by them. The true sharing could only take place at telepathic level wherein you and I could become reunited in a single mind.
For this to happen we need to accept that at some level of perception we are all One, united in the Eternal Now. That You and I, and everyone else are a single organism made up not of rarefied atoms of mostly empty space, not even fields of energy… but ideas that enhance each other to form ever grater union of our endless diversity. Yes, even time is imaginary, as are the planets, the stars the galaxies. They are all thoughts projected for our enchantment.
In true reality, you and I are ever-projecting, ever-changing holographic image on the screen of our perceptions—all within the Eternal Now. Eventually, the phenomenal worlds will all crumble into ever-receding horizon. But we remain. Forever. If you accept this premise, you’ll never be sad or lonely again.

Dominion and Jurisdiction

A word from the Bible: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
According to two billion Christians, almost a thirteen million Jews, and another two billion Moslem who also recognize the Bible (referred to in the Koran as The Book), seem to have been created in the image and likeness of God. Hence, one can only presume, that we’d want to treat the world and everything and everyone in it, as we’d want to be treated by our Maker. If so, it then seems to me that well over four billion people ignore the faith they claim to confess.

So much for religions.
And yet the myths on which all religions are based, from which they are derived, are as noble and as true today as they were thousands of years ago.
We are NOT supposed kill, devour and destroy everything in sight, but look after it, administer it, protect it from any harm as best we can — the way the WE would like to be looked after by a “Higher Authority” that has jurisdiction over us. And our responsibility applies to “the fish of the sea, and the fowl of the air, and the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
It seems to me that none of the avowed ‘followers’ of the three major faith of the world have carried out, or are carrying out, this admonition. So why call ourselves Christians, or Jews, or Moslem?
Beats me.

Just imagine a world in which we, humans, don’t kill everything that moves to distend even more our obesity, in which we really care about our jurisdiction with the sort of love that we assign to higher beings, reputedly created in the image of god. Just imagine…
And then try to visualize it.
And then? And then watch it—as it slowly, inexorably, unavoidably, becomes reality. Glorious, loving, reality.

It seems that we have been intended to build a completely different world from that in which we all participate today. There are ways and means of doing so. For each and every one of us. You might care to scan through the book below. I wrote it some time ago but it still seems to be up to date. Perhaps the truth is immortal?
