This simple truth: that tradition, cultural conditioning, and convention directs most of our thoughts, speech, and actions. Once we strip away all that identity and belief what is left is pure being, an empty vessel ready to receive Divine nectar to fill the Golden Chalice with light and love. Creation arises from the Divine desire to manifest love into substance, energy and matter. The diversity of life and beings is testament to the eternal and infinite omni-essence of God. Science and scientists attempt to logically measure and define God, it’s essential being of energy, light, matter, anti-matter, dark matter, dark energy, gravity, electro-magnetic properties, etc. If a phenomenon is not visible, detectable, or measurable then it lies beyond the scope of physics and mathematics and lives in the realm of the metaphysical and the spiritual.
Science can never know God, it can only give approximations of its existence and scope.
At this level of experience, intuitional understanding becomes impossible to communicate and share. That’s why we can talk about the omni-presence of God as consciousness, of the omniscience of God as infinite intelligence, and of the infinite compassion and love of God for creation is evidenced by the laws which govern nature and balance order and chaos in the universe; generation and dissolution; the cycle of birth and death is eternal yet bound in space and time on the material plane of being and existence. We intuitively know that there are other dimensions beyond this physical material plane and from that grows faith and trust in afterlife, in the eternal nature of soul and in the existence of an ‘intelligent design’ or Divine plan. There has to be ‘something greater than consciousness’ which creates order within chaos and/or which allows it to exist simultaneously.
The truth which underlies the existence of all concepts, time, space, energy,matter, order, chaos is contained within the belief, understanding, and faith that God extends beyond biology and that life extends beyond the physical reality which the mind perceives and categorizes, and classifies.
What all living beings possess is the diverse yet common fingerprint of DNA, a hierarchy of consciousness and understanding or wisdom, and a sense of oneness which calls us to accept the presence of God as both love and acceptance. We know that the universe is expanding and accelerating, there is no evidence that the universe will reverse and contract; there is however evidence that the law of cycles is universal and that galaxies have black holes at their center which in time absorb ‘what is matter’ into its center and transforms it back into gravity and energy to then again explode into a super nova and create new galaxies and stars and planets.
The mind cannot grasp the concept of ‘beginning or end of time’ (eternity) or ‘beginning or end of space'(infinity).
When we attempt to explore the smallest element of physical being we are brought to an absence of matter and are left with only space. Similarly when we attempt to explore the greatest reality or universe we are also left with only space, ie: great distances between components of matter: galaxies, stars, etc. It is only when we transcend our minds that we can transcend time and space and visit distant planes of being beyond the physical plane as we do in the dream state.
