Who Creates Creation?

Featured


There are generally three schools of thought surrounding the mystery of creation, and this post will attempt to throw some light on the subject.

The first school of thought on how the universe and our species came about can be split into two theories; either there was a “big bang” and everything just fell into place randomly, or it was created in stages by a god.

The second school of thought, which makes perfect sense to anyone who is actively on a spiritual quest and who can see beyond the restrictions and limitations of organised religion, is that the universe only exists when there is an observer.  To clarify this concept, I always use the analogy of looking at a tree.  The original scriptures, which were not specific to any religion, proclaimed that science and spirituality are inseparable; two sides of the same coin.  Science has told us that everything without exception is energy, which is constantly in motion and vibrates at varying frequencies.  To come back to our tree analogy, the tree doesn’t exist as a tree; it has no idea that it has been given this label by humans.  What we know as “the tree” exists as energy, which is vibrating at a specific frequency.  But, our brains interpret that energy vibration in a particular way, which appears to us as the phenomenon we call “a tree”.  The reason we all see the same thing is because we all exist within the same field of infinite consciousness.  When we fall into deep dreamless sleep, what we refer to as “creation” disappears, and with it, the ego.  On waking, whether that be via dreamstate or not, the “I” thought, or ego, rears its head again and the objective world reappears.

The final school of thought, which will make perfect sense to those who are evolving from the previous school, is that ultimately, there is no creation because nothing exists except consciousness.  When the individual, small self, eventually awakens and merges with the one eternal Self, there comes the realisation that there never was an individual self or “the world”; the whole experience was nothing more than a dream.  This concept is perfectly encapsulated by the ancient Indian sage, Shankara, when he said:

The Universe is unreal

God is real

The Universe is God

It’s my personal preference to substitute the word “God” for either “Consciousness” or “Awareness” but either way, it doesn’t really matter.  That short but very profound statement also appears to clear up the debate often heard in spiritual circles as to whether the objective world is an illusion or not.  It is… or it isn’t, depending on where you are at in your existence as an individual soul.  To the unconscious, the objective world is as real as real can be; along with all the drama that goes with it.  However, to those who are further along “The Road to Nowhere” the objective world is only real in that it is a manifestation of consciousness, all objective reality is a creation of the egoic mind and ultimately does not exist.

The Transitory Phenomenon We Call Life


The nature of our relationship with creation is that of subject/object. The mind (subject) constantly seeks out objects in the world and interacts with them; objects can be things or people. It then draws a series of conclusions and opinions around the interaction, which determine whether we are happy, sad or indifferent with the experience. Relationships are so-called because we all exist in relation to each other. When two people are in love; genuinely in love, it is not because they are in a relationship with each other. It is actually because the soul connection between the two is so strong, that the illusion of the subject/object relationship has broken down and dissolved away, allowing the two souls to merge in Love with each other and experience the oneness of consciousness. This is a great paradox of life; we are only in a relationship when the relationship has broken down!

The subject/object relationship is what is also known as duality; the illusion that things and people exist separately and independently. The only reality is consciousness, however, when consciousness has its dancing shoes on, objects rise up and appear to exist independently of everything and everyone else. But all that rises up must also dissolve away; this is the transitory phenomenon that we call Creation.

Reincarnation Simplified


616828_3084981623035_2102591458_oIt’s a subject that is quite often pondered; reincarnation; do we or don’t we? There are a number of arguments for and against, but for me, the simplest way to explain this conundrum is as follows. The Self is all there is. It exists in an eternal state of bliss as infinite consciousness. The entire creation, and all the drama that goes with it, is simply consciousness projecting itself while at the same time imposing temporary limitations on itself. The Self is ever-present and changeless and has neither birth nor death. So we should ask the question:

Who is it that reincarnates?

The answer is that it is only the ego that reincarnates.

A New Experience


544965_242122179232987_1867947155_nWell! It seems like ages since I’ve communicated with you. My PC problems have been sorted and here I am with my first blog post of 2015. It’s been quite a crazy time for me really; I feel like I’m going through a weird kind of transition period and I’ve just not been in the mood to write. For those who have been following my work for some time, you will know that I tend to write a lot about my actual experiences; and as I stated before Christmas, spectacular experiences, especially of the out-of-body type, have been at an all time low. So, it was with great relief that something of note; albeit something completely new, happened to me on the morning of January 21; something that I could actually blog about. Now before I get into the main theme of this post, I will just recap slightly because I’ve noticed that I have a number of new followers and I don’t want to leave them confused.

Since 1999 I’ve had so many out-of-body experiences that it would be impossible to recount them all.  They became so common-place that these days I only write about the truly amazing ones. I’ve also had many, many other experiences of a (sorry for using this word) “supernatural” nature; the likes of which most people only dream about. I say supernatural because it is a word people understand; unfortunately, it is a word that’s quite often used to describe all the stuff that gives someone like me a bad name. So, there I was, minding my own business…

It was the very early morning of January 21 and I started to dream. I was in a theatre, it was very dark and I was laying on my back on the stage. There was other people with me but I could not see them; I simply had a knowing sense that they were there. As we lay there, there was beams of what I understood to be harmful microwaves shooting out at us. My understanding of these was that they were being projected towards the Earth by aliens (yes, I know it sounds crazy, but I’ll get to the point soon). The microwaves missed us because we were laying on our backs. All of a sudden, I experienced a state of being that was completely new to me; and I shall explain.

Our dreams may be crazy most of the time, however, the emotions that we experience are very real; indeed, the only real difference between dream state and waking state is that in dream state we tend to experience rather intense emotions and are unable to physicalise. Also, some of you reading this will be familiar with being able to experience yourself as pure consciousness (our natural state) during meditation. When we achieve this state of awareness, it is as though the physical form has simply dissolved away and we become all expansive; we become “all that is” and at the same time, nothing. The key words in that last sentence are “all expansive”. Why? Because, in my dream I experienced the opposite of being “all expansive” whilst at the same time being just that.

Even though I was dreaming I was aware of what was going on. The story may have been nonsense (yes, yes, I know, it probably contained some kind of profound message) but the feeling was very real indeed. I felt myself entering a state of awareness that I had never experienced before; I actually felt quite apprehensive at the onset. Then I found myself in this incredible state; I was “all that is”, but I was within “all that is” as a mere atom. So, in simple terms, I experienced myself as an atom within the infinity that is creation, whilst at the same time experiencing being all expansive. Then the dream just got more and more ridiculous and less and less profound until I woke up.

I’m hoping this is the start of something new and exciting that will give me subject matter for another book! Thanks for following me and supporting my work. Please do leave a comment!!
