The major question of the 21st century: Is God alive and is there a Divine Plan?


The main problem facing humanity is the question of division of belief about the existence or non-existence of a ‘God’ and of whether there exists a Divine Plan or Intelligent Design. The intent of this article/blog is not to convert or convince those who are atheists that God exists, just to list some reasons why I believe that there is a Divine presence and Plan which lives on this planet and in this Universe.
Already when we posit the question in this way we are giving ‘God’ a state of being and existence which implies universalism and omnipotence. As humans we know no other source of being other than the existential material state embodied as substance and having form. We forget that water, air, and fire and earth do not have a fixed form yet respond to laws of motion and gravity and transformation from energy to matter and back again to energy. Mineral matter manifest as rock, mountain, or soil is continually being transformed by fire, water, and air as the continents are continually moving by tectonic activity. Even our planet which from space may appear to be a monolith of matter is in continual motion, transformation, and evolution.
Despite this truth it is difficult for some human minds to grasp the belief that God must be both immaterial or invisible or energetic and material, both creator and destroyer of the visible realm, operating within the context of a universal grand Divine Plan of evolution.
We are constantly speaking of reality as being composed of the dualism of energy/matter or of visible/invisible. The very nature of matter is constructed on the matrix of substance: electrons, protons and neutrons; energy of attraction and repulsion: holding these elements in specified configurations for the complete table of elements; and space: the aspect of emptiness or consciousness which is comprised of dark matter or some unnamed cosmic substance between matter and energy.
Most individuals like to think of reality as being composed of ‘me’ and ‘other’, subjective (me) and objective (other). The psychologists posit this perception of reality as being composed of individual personalities with egos and personal identities.
This perception from the realm of separatism and ‘otherness’ becomes the basis for identity and association, or mostly dis-association. This sets up Humans for oppositional and adversarial inter-relationships. This then becomes the basis for the construction of cultures, nation-states, and private ownership of tools, production, and subsequently industrial means of production, and thus the creation of capital surplus and wealth.
This differentiation between personal ownership of property versus the collective social common ownership of the means of production and thus of social surplus has resulted in a capitalist industrial technological explosion of production of goods for which there is an insatiable appetite. This has also resulted in a increasing gap between haves and have-nots, wealthy and poor. The percentage of extremely wealthy is decreasing while the percentage of extremely poor is increasing exponentially not due to scarcity or resources but because of an inherent inequality in the inheritance of the social assets. The very nature of capitalism guarantees its eventual destruction by industrial rebellions and social revolutions.
The replacement of religion by capitalism has led to a rise in atheism or agnosticism. Whether one believes in ‘God’ or not doesn’t change anyone’s status with regards to their social position or ability to acquire wealth. Those who pursue the acquisition of wealth need to do so by acquiring the social surplus of workers as posited by Karl Marx in Das Capital.
Those who have no workers to exploit have no means to acquire wealth and social surplus. It does however become increasingly more difficult for employers who have employees to rationalize the inequality within the value structure of major religious affiliations. One cannot pursue two gods: Money and God? On the other hand atheists should have no moral qualms about exploiting workers and appropriating the social surplus from their labour.
Most major world religions believe that God has a trine nature: light, love, and power. Hindus call the trine nature of God :Para-Brahman being the light or intelligence aspect, Vishnu being the love aspect, and Shiva, being the restorative or destructive aspect of God or Power.
The Christians believe in the divine Father representing the Power of creation and destruction, the Son representing the Word, and embodiment of Love, and finally the Holy Spirit representing intelligence or consciousness.
The Buddhists don’t perceive themselves to be a religion nonetheless they also have a trine belief in describing God and call the light aspect ‘consciousness’ which is manifest as emptiness, the love aspect ‘ananda’ manifested as inter-connectedness and earthly bliss, and the power aspect manifested as Incarnation or Creation, but also encompassing the states of suffering and liberation.
Individuals who purport to be atheists or agnostics meaning that they don’t see the proof for an intelligent design in the universe or on the planet, or in their civilization are choosing to not accept the proof when it is given and shown. So we can therefore call atheists individuals who are resistant to ‘truth’ and to ‘proof’. There are those who will use syllogisms and philosophical argument to attempt to convince non-atheists that it is easier to disprove the existence of God than to prove it. Theists are ready to make arguments to demonstrate that this creation cannot have happened randomly and that there does exist a universal Divine Plan for Humanity and for all living beings. The fact that much of the Divine Plan is a mystery and is beyond the comprehension of much of Humanity does not preclude its existence any more than the inability to see electricity or magnetism preclude its existence.
That is why there must exist communications between the Divine realm and the Human plane of existence. The revelation of the Divine Plan by the Hierarchy and the Directors of the Divine Plan must be mediated by the use of channels or mediums. There are ascended Masters and Great Ones who are communicating at this time with evolved souls who have incarnated for this purpose.
The Hindus and Buddhists believe that the teachings are continually being sustained and maintained by an organized and steady lineage of re-incarnations of Masters and Great Ones to keep the beliefs alive.
This is the role of Bodhisatvas to return to the Human plane as teachers to continue the lineage of teachings and to raise the vibration of as many Humans as possible within each incarnation until all have achieved an end of pain and suffering.
