WHO ARE WE, WHAT IS THIS PLACE WE FIND OURSELVES IN AND WHY ARE WE HERE?
PART I – WHO ARE WE?
There is much more going on in our world than we know. Our world is not what it may seem and we are much more than we seem. For those who are interested in exploring some deeper truths and willing to accept that you may not like what you will learn, I encourage you to step outside your personal mind of assumptions and social belief, for to understand our world you need to go beyond reason.
Most people do not entertain the deeper questions of life for they feel they do not have the capacity to know or likely find such thoughts fearful. Yet, embracing the likelihood that we Humans are more than just sentient beings roaming the Earth to work, consume and distract ourselves with toys and entertainment can lead us individually and collectively to an empowerment unlike anything we have known. In order to do this we have to face the unknown with the greatest desire and intention to know. We need to have the deepest desire to KNOW. This desire to know is what we call the beginning of our spiritual journey. It is a journey we must take if Humanity is to maintain its sovereignty and evolve beyond our current restrictive state of distraction and disharmony.
We are faced with enormous existential threats and yet we hold the power within us to mitigate if not eradicate them. We Humans are in our adolescent stage of evolution, a period of many mistakes, mishaps and manipulations because just like an adolescent child we are not prepared for the world we have entered even after 300,000 years of evolution beyond the onset of Homo Erectus. Even with our advanced technology and civilizations we have not evolved beyond adolescence.
So, if we are more than we seem to be and yet we are in our adolescent stage of development just who are we? Let me start with the answer and then explain how this might be. We are at our essence pure energy, light and consciousness as that of our ultimate Creator what we often refer to as God. The Creator is the Center of the Mystery of Life and while we are connected with this Center we find ourselves in a world where we are seemingly separated from It. Yes, there is a God and It has created us as It has created all things.
Everything is at its essence energy and everything has a level of consciousness. Consider that every animate and inanimate object is comprised of atoms and that these atoms have consciously come together in just the right fashion to create a physical form. While the consciousness of the atoms stems from the Creator they are nonetheless energy and a level of consciousness with a purpose say to transform into a rock.
Remember, energy cannot be created or destroyed. It emanates from God and changes form based on Divine consciousness and intention; based on a Master Plan which is the Mystery of Life. We are part of the Master Plan. We are part of the Mystery of Life. We are at our essence immortal. When we ‘die’ we transform into another state of consciousness and another form. Do not think too hard about this. Simply let the essence of the idea enter you.
Everything manifested in our material world of form begins with an intention, begins with a desire, begins with a thought. The Hermetic philosophers believed everything was mental. Everything was of the mental realm. This idea of the origins of all life emanating from the mental realm and from God which is of pure consciousness is a precept of many religions and philosophies. It is Truth.
At our essence we are That of God emanating from a thought of God and carry within us the attributes of God. We have been designed as co-creators with God with the free will to create that which we desire here in the world of form. How we do this involves our interaction with Universal Laws such as the Law of Attraction which says that one attracts or creates in one’s environment that which one thinks of with the strongest intention and emotional charge.
The Universal Laws of Creation are impersonal and non-judgmental. They respond to anyone’s thoughts if they are strong enough. Think about this as you look upon our world of such confusion and chaos. We carry much power with us as That of God and with such power we need to be responsible. We are all mostly creating unconsciously manifesting a world without much attention or understanding of how our thoughts and actions affect others, the world and the wider Universe. We need to become conscious creators and this can only happen with an understanding of our world and how we interact with it.
Consider that we have two minds. We have our personal mind which is designed to interact with the physical world including our culture, our technology and means of survival. It is limited in that it is chattery and full of a constant stream of thoughts. It is often judgmental, emotional, fearful, angry, doubtful, distracted and easily manipulated.
We also have an inner-mind. This is our connection with the Divine. This mind is quiet, confident and fearless. It is compassionate and forgiving. It is all knowing just as is the Creator of which it is part. While the personal mind becomes confused the inner-mind simply knows. While the personal mind is temporary as is the body it resides in, the inner-mind is permanent unlike the vessel which carries it. The inner-mind is perfect while the personal mind makes mistakes. The inner-mind is our essence and it is the reconnection with this essence we are here to fulfill in our presence here on Earth.
Who are we? We are spiritual beings as That of God having a Human experience. As spiritual beings we are immortal. Nothing gets to destroy our Essence as nothing gets to destroy God. This truth is something I highly encourage you to meditate on for you will need to embrace your true immortality as we explore the deeper truths of the world we find ourselves in and how our vessel, the physical form called Humans truly came to be Homo Sapiens.
