Ever wonder how it all started? I’m sure you have at one time or another. The ongoing query is, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” Scientifically it seems that the egg came first; combinations of chemicals into the building blocks of life and survival of the synergetic intricacies of living structures into its environment.
But what about the universe itself? Where did it come from? Has it always been here? Or has it come and gone over and over again? Is there an intelligent design or just random chaos? Things work in the observable universe based on the waythey are supposed to work according to specific laws.
Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it simply changes form from light into matter and back again; an endless cycle of life that gives life and takes it away. But what about the universe that cannot be observed? It exists as dark matter and dark energy. Most of the universe is composed of these components yet we cannot ‘see’ them. Currently, they are theoretical constructs that make the astrophysicists’ math work out, but do they truly exist? Are they pieces of the puzzle that we have created to make everything ‘fit’ or do they, in fact, exist?
Our part in humankind is but a mere speck on the universe’s clock of time. We are a by-product of our environment and we exist within it. It has given us the necessary elements to exist within natural order. But what about Divine order? Is it an extension of natural order that we perceive as being Divine? Or is it the result of living and loving God who has literally breathed the breath of life into our beings? Do we share the Divine infinite spirit orare we just islands of clay that react to the natural order of our environments?
Some scientists believe that our soul is in fact an amalgam of synaptic energy that synergizes itself into existence as we grow and dies completely on our death. Others believe that the soul refolds into the energies of the universe upon death. What makes our soul unique is the expression of the Infinite Spirit into our physical bodies. When our physical bodies die our spirit still lives because it is a part of the universe that is not observable. Our soul (unique combination of a spirit in a body) no longer exists and our bodies refold into the dust that they were constructed from originally.
We cannot prove the unobservable with the laws of the observable; but we can utilize the laws of the unobservable to manifest our purpose in the observable. And just what are these laws? There are many from varied teachers but let’s suffice it to say they are all based on the golden rule. Project into the universe what you want to experience in the now. Share the gifts that we have been so graciously given.
Do not allow the erroneous beliefs of others and your acceptance of them to interfere with the manifestation of your Divine purpose. You have the power of choice to steer your life in the direction of actualizing your innermost dreams. Like Nike’s slogan says, “Just do it!” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
