Is there a Divine Plan?
The search for fullness or infinity of love and emptiness of mind or eternity of consciousness is the quest for all times.
Both states are absolute realities; the first arises from the eternal and infinite generosity of God, the One which is All, the One Reality which comprises the fullness of creation and the emptiness of dissolution of the elements; the second arises from an understanding that everything which is matter or elemental is held together by the glue of emptiness or ‘God particle’.
Self identity is a delusion and Human perception of self is deluded because of the existence of emptiness between each atom and within each sub-atomic particle. When we think we see an object what we are really seeing is a memory of what we think an object to be. Personal identity is distorted by the mind and the ego which perceives itself as separate.
This knowledge is necessary to understand the wisdom of impermanence and inter-connectedness.
Every atom is bound by energetic and magnetic forces of attraction and repulsion which constitutes matter in our universe. There are other forces which transform energy into matter whose mechanisms we do not understand, way beyond our understanding of simple combustion resulting from the interaction of chemicals and substances in the presence of oxygen.
In prehistoric times Humanity perceived lightning as the finger of God creating light and fire. Therefore there was belief that God lived in the skies and that the thunder was the voice of God and the lightning his will. So the mythic belief in fire being sacred arose and is associated with rituals that honour God: the presence of fire through the lighting of the candle is central to most religious services.
We are only beginning to comprehend the nature of solar flares and its radiation effects.
Science is meeting spirituality in many areas with quantum physics discovering the ‘God’ particle attempting to explain how matter is created from the convergence of light, energy, mass, and gravity.
By accelerating two protons and colliding them together in the Haldron Collider, physicists have been able to identify a particle which holds protons together- a cosmic glue, if you will, called the Higgs boson. The collision of two protons releases tremendous amounts of mass, light, and electro-magnetic force.
“The Higgs boson weighs what theoretical predictions say it should, according to both ATLAS and CMS. It’s about 125-126 gigaelectronvolts, or about 130 times heavier than a proton. The LHC was able to find it by speeding protons at incredibly high energies through its vast series of tubes, and smashing them together. Mass and energy are the same thing, so when the protons have very high energies, they’re very large. They blow apart when they collide, and physicists look for smaller constituent particles in the shrapnel. That’s where they see the Higgs boson.(Source: How ‘Higgsy’ is this particle? More work needs to be done By Rebecca Boyle.?)
When we think of the creation and dissolution of the human being we compare it to the birth and death of stars. After all we are made of stardust, are we not? So perhaps we can perceive of our physical death as synonymous with the dissolution of our Divine Cosmic Nature back to its non-material essence of being-ness. We can perceive of our Human conception in the Mother’s womb as the integration of ‘consciousness’ with our physical nature. There must be a Divine mechanism to orchestrate this event and must have some Divine plan for it to manifest consistently and successfully birth after birth.
We attribute our ‘soulfulness’ or spiritual essence to our Divine Nature which is non-physical and non-material. We make reference to our ‘soul’ being eternal and infinite when compared to our physical nature which is finite and by its essence atrophic- destined to decay. So how can we be so sure that our ‘soul’ contains this eternal and infinite essence which we call ‘consciousness’? And can we perceive of a time in the future when we will be so soulful that we will invent a mechanism by which we can stop the atrophy of the physical vehicle which is our bodies and achieve immortal status for Humanity while being in the body? Is that something which God would want to occur? And is there some way that we can divine the Universal Cosmic Plan through our limited Human Consciousness?
