The Beginning “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. …” (Genesis 1) NASB In the beginning, there was the eternal Spirit of God. Everything that exists is composed using orderly creative energy; this is sacred Spirit. Science now begins to support the ancient beliefs of eastern teachings that we live in a world of illusion. The physical world in fact is both particle and wave unified into one interacting unit. The concept that we are “light beings” takes on a clearer meaning through this concept. “We are spiritual beings having a human experience”. Divine grace and power flows within our mind and soul. This is the Light of God. God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. …” (Genesis 1) NASB All that exists here and now is eternal. The substance of creation is part of the being of God. We know that it is true because it exists here and now in this present moment. God created only of Himself. We perceive our self as a physical body with intelligence or the ability to think, reason, remember, and retain information. We have the ability to build and create using energy or power inspired by free will. We have feeling, emotion, including love and caring. Is this eternal mind, knowledge and intelligence; or is creation a chaotic event without reason or purpose?
The Components of Life and Conscious Existence include: Energy— is the ability to move, create, and work. It is the power moving all things. Energy is the capacity of a physical system to perform work. The reality of energy is that that matter (mass) and energy are interchangeable through Einstein’s famous formula, E=mc2. Of course this can also be written m=E/c2. Matter/mass is equal to energy “slowed down” by the speed of light squared. Matter and energy, are interchangeable Matter— is that which has weight and occupies space/a slower vibration of energy. It occupies space, and perceived by one or more physical senses. Matter includes a physical body, a physical substance, or the universe as a whole. According to physics matter may actually be nothing more than a series of organized patterns out of focus and that subatomic “particles” are not really made of energy, but simply are energy. It requires intelligence and creative energy to organize. Intelligence/Mind— is the ability to think, reason, know and create in an orderly manner. The ability to attribute mental states to oneself and others and to understand that others have beliefs, desires, and intentions that are different from one’s own. Feeling— is the ability to be content, to have feelings, emotion, love, and peace. It is the ability to express mental states showing emotion or sensitivity. Synonyms include, sensitive, warm, warmhearted, tender, tenderhearted, caring, sympathetic, kind, compassionate, understanding and thoughtful. Will—the ability to choose and make decisions independently. This is free will which also is a gift is given to humanity. Will, inspires motivation to accomplish tasks. Free will allows independent decision to choose our course of action.
Energy is eternal. Matter is a slower moving vibrational energy. It is eternal substance, which changes in form. This is God/Transcendent/Divinity/the Force or Creator. The Spirit of God possesses the power to move and create using intelligence, mind, thought and all the components of life. God created humanity in His own image. We are an extension of God. We are at one. “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; …God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 26- 28) (NASB) As God extended himself using all creative energy, power, intelligence, will, mind and matter, the Son of God emerged. As the Son created of Himself, there arose all souls within a Holy Spirit God. We are living in the Spirit of God this present moment. God possess all power to manifest in many forms and with various names but there is only one universal God. God lives in and through all and yet maintains individuality. This is infinite spirit and personal. God is body, mind, spirit, and soul indicating a separate person and yet at one with all. He is creative loving, kind and only good. God is intelligent aware and possesses all knowledge and wisdom. We know that this is true because we are living examples of that which is now and forever.
The purpose and reason for creation is to live in the Spirit of God as a Friend. We are of our own free will to live according to an infinite plan, a design for perfect living according to one law of Love for God and each other. Separation from this request leads to chaos automatically according to the Divine scheme of creation. We are the creators of our own reality. Our purpose is to maintain order through love and respect for each other and all creation. This is only a small portion of a much greater reality. It is a simple interpretation based upon various philosophical teachings and faith. “Everything should be as simple as possible, but no simpler.” —Albert Einstein
