How WAS life created?
Admittedly it is a pretty big question.
Honestly, who among us can claim to really know the answer?
For many it is a question that is simply beyond our ability to comprehend or even figure out.
BUT, there are SOME explanations of how the cosmos originated from both the scientific point of view, as WELL as from the mystical point of view.
In this post, we’re going to be taking a look at the mystical view of this question, and that is the mystical view that is known as pure non-dualism.
A (VERY) Brief History of How the Universe Got Started
So right off the bat we know that the main scientific view of how life got started was through a little something called the big bang.
Now some believe the big bang actually happened, while others don’t.
Some believe that the big bang happened WITH an omnipotent being like God being involved, while others believe that the big bang just kind of ‘happened’ one day.
The truth is, it’s a little bit of both.
You see, the truth about life is that what we call LIFE and what we call GOD are actually one and the same thing.
God is life, life is God.
But what do we mean by life?
Well, to paraphrase many of the teachers and sages of the east, life is simply pure being.
And this being is what those in the eastern traditions such as Hinduism refer to as sat cit ananda, or bliss, consciousness, and joy absolute.
Just picture it as pure LOVE, pure AWARENESS, and pure BLISS.
In truth, this IS real reality.
Not only that, but it is eternal and changeless.
You could also say that this state of being is in a state of complete and total timelessness.
Now if you take a look at the world and universe we are in now, we know we have something called time and space.
Time and space are sort of the foundation of the universe and world we’re in now.
And time and space (if you notice there are TWO aspects we’re talking about here, which is another way of saying DUALITY), are what occurred with the ‘big bang’ that brought the universe and world we live in now into existence.
Now what you’ve got to understand is that this is the complete OPPOSITE of the timeless changeless awareness, bliss, and love that we were talking about above.
The Fall from Grace or the Original ‘Sin’
If you remember in pretty much all religions and spiritual paths, there is always some account or story about a ‘fall‘ from heaven or some kind of fall from grace or sin.
Now the moment that the big bang occurred is when time and space were born.
But believe it or not, this was NOT done by God, or this timeless essence of bliss awareness and, but rather it was done by the mind of the SON of God, or Christ.
You see, Christ is the only offspring of God.
And their relationship to one another is that they share thoughts with each other and in this way manifest and continue to expand creation.
Basically the son of God has an idea or a thought, this thought is sent to God the Father (or the source), and then God the Father brings this idea to life!
But at one point, the son of God contemplated the idea of what it would be like to be SEPARATE from God the Father.
It was just a brief ‘what if’ idea.
But because this was in truth impossible, for the first time in their relationship God the Father did NOT respond to the Son’s thought.
Because of this, it seemed briefly that God had disappeared or was somehow angry with the Son, and the Son then panicked and REACTED to this apparent ‘reality’ and then collapsed in on itself in intense fear, shame, and guilt.
When this happened the big bang occurred, which gave birth to our universe of time and space (or duality).
This was a place where the Son could HIDE from the Father and try to escape the wrath or punishment he believed was coming from God for this apparent ‘sin’, and also where the Son COULD sort of be separate and do his own thing.
Now it seemed as if God was GONE.
Nowhere to be found whatsoever.
This is where the individual identity came into being or what some refer to as the ego mind.
And this is how the universe and world we are seemingly in now came into being!
Never Fear! This Whole Separation and Time and Space Thing is JUST a DREAM!
So what was described above was a REAL brief and simplified account of how the universe of time and space, and consequently OUR world came into existence.
Like it’s stated in the title, this is what is known as the pure non-dualistic view of the cosmos.
There are of course other views, but when you dig deep enough you will start to find connections, patterns, and similarities between the various religious and spiritual traditions and their account of how the beginning of life took place.
This view of the origins of the cosmos is of course something that our modern day scientists have no real understanding or PROOF of, as it is sort of beyond any way of ‘proving’ in any kind of a lab.
But there are a few things to consider.
Number one, what is with all the suffering in this world?
Does any of this seem normal to you?
We’re born, we live some kind of life, some better or worse than others.
We get old, and then we eventually die.
And EVERYTHING is in constant flux or change.
But you have to ask yourself, if something changes, can it then be real?
What do I mean when I say this?
Well consider a timeless truth such as 1 + 1 = 2.
It’s just true, and it’s true no matter what part of the universe you’re in or what country you’re in.
It is a timeless truth that will never change.
Well, if a couple of numbers could achieve a timeless status, how much more could God have?
If life is timeless and it is also TRUE, then that means it has to be ETERNAL.
And if something ISN’T eternal (or it changes), then it could stand to reason then that it wouldn’t be really real would it?
So that leads us to the next concept that the world and universe we are in now is sort of like a dream.
In the east they say that it is the great cosmic dream of God.
In the west they say that God created paradise and then due to some trouble with one of the angels (lucifer), there was a moment of a casting out of heaven, and in turn a need for redemption or salvation.
Interestingly enough in Genesis in the Bible it says that a deep sleep fell over Adam, but nowhere in the Bible is there any reference to him waking up.
That’s because we are in the great cosmic DREAM or delusion.
Now some traditions don’t have this view of the cosmos at all, but they do have some awareness of ‘heaven’ and ‘our world’ and a place they like to call ‘hell’.
In truth, the universe we’re in now kind of IS hell.
Of course we’re just spittin’ philosophy right now.
But think about it.
Doesn’t this world kind of seem like hell?
How much suffering is going on here?
And I mean UNBELIEVABLE levels of suffering for some people.
As we already discussed, even if you live a reasonable life, eventually everything and everyone you love and care about, including your own self, dies.
There is no doubt about the fact that there is CRAZY suffering that goes on here.
And so when you start to investigate the nature of this suffering for yourself, you will be led on the journey to finding both the source of this suffering as well as the source of yourself, and you will begin to realize a lot of the things we are talking about here to be true.
But this is only a DREAM of hell.
You could say it’s kind of like the devil’s dream, or the devil’s madhouse.
This is the devil’s world, NOT God the Father’s.
So yeah it does kind of suck in the world we’re in now, but the good news if it IS just a dream, then we can wake up from it! (or attain salvation).
So You Say the Universe and the World is Just a Dream, but Can it be Proven?
Well, this is where things get interesting.
First of all, yes, everything I’ve been talking about here actually CAN be proven, but it won’t come in the form of a test tube.
It’s something that has to be experienced IN YOU.
BUT what’s really cool in my opinion is that in the modern day and age we are in now, we have a little something called quantum physics.
And one of the things that quantum physics states is that the world and universe we see around us is MOSTLY empty space and that it’s all fundamentally CONSCIOUSNESS and ENERGY.
Now of course the quantum physicists who have been discovering a lot of this don’t have all the pieces to the puzzle yet, but they have actually PROVEN that the universe is an ILLUSION.
It is crazy.
BUT, it’s true.
Quantum physics is the beginning of the bridge between the world’s of the seen and the unseen.
It is the beginning of being able to scientifically understand how REAL reality actually works.
And so far we know that EVERYTHING is fundamentally energy, and that NOTHING is as it appears.
Another way of saying that is that this world and universe is an illusion.
And wouldn’t you know it, that’s what the world’s most ancient spiritual sages teachers and masters have been saying this whole time.
As far as proving the existence of God to yourself, this what spirituality is really all about.
Because it’s all consciousness (and you are actually THAT yourself, or an offspring of God), to find the truth you’ve got to do it with your consciousness.
You’ve got to work to WAKE up from this dream of separation and duality.
So you know, loving God, loving yourself, loving your neighbor AS yourself.
Living in harmony with life.
All that stuff is what all spirituality is all about.
And ultimately you get to the point where you wake up from this delusion and you experience your TRUE self is an eternal light of the creator and you also realize God at the same time!
If you want it, you can have it.
But due to the issue of free will, YOU have to want it and make the CHOICE to take the JOURNEY.
And when you do, you will be sent teachers and guides to help you do so.
Wrapping it Up
Does all that makes sense?
It’s ok if it doesn’t, OR if you don’t agree with what I’m saying here and you think I’m nuts.
But what’s described here IS the description of how life began from a non-dualistic or more specifically PURE non-dualistic point of view.
And I know everyone says this kind of thing about what they believe, but honest to God with everything I’ve seen and experienced in my journey, the above story is pretty much the way things run.
The cool news is you don’t have to believe me or anyone else.
You can find out for yourself through direct personal experience.
But again, you’ve got to want it.
You can continue to live your life here in this cosmic dream reality of time and space lifetime after lifetime as if you were playing some kind of super advanced cosmic video game over and over.
OR you can start to inquire within yourself as to what the true nature of all this is, as well as yourself.
And when you’ll do that, you’ll get the realizations of how it all works and how it all got started, because the truth is you and I (and all of us) WERE there at the beginning.
All you’ve got to do is to want to remember and to wake up, and then you’ll be guided on your journey towards doing so!
