In 2004 the Hubble Telescope peered out at Orion and took a time lapse photograph over a period of 11 days. When the picture was analyzed the furthest objects appeared to have a mysterious red glow. What does that mean? According to the Doppler Effect it means that all of the galaxies at the very edge of the universe are moving away from us. In other words, the omniverse is ‘expanding’.
As we grow in the understanding of our immediate, global and omniversal environment, we come to see that everything is expanding. Growth and expansion is the ‘direction’ in which theomniverse moves and exists. Our perspective is the only thing that can speculate on an eventual reduction and contraction of what we experience.
Everything is composed of waves of energy that demonstrate a peak and a valley simultaneously know as crests and troughs. They do not exist without each other. In order for something to be ‘up’, there must be a ‘down’. For something to be ‘hot’ there must be a ‘cold’. In order for something to be ‘far’, there must be some ‘close’. These perspectives are the sensory conclusions of ‘projected’ opposite pairs in the perceived dualistic reality.
Our outer experience reflects our inner perspective as we derive meaning from sensing our environment. We experience events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of people and ‘things’ in our environment and filter those experiences through our individual belief systems to ‘make sense’ of it all. Our belief systems are forged by past experiences that we have accepted as real. Most often, they are rigid and unyielding. Our beliefs take a stance that ‘this is the way it always will be’ and refuse to change their viewpoints because it will make us feel ‘uncomfortable’. We begin to ‘fear’ change because our beliefs give us security and comfort. In essence, what we believe filters our experience with a skew that ‘bends’ reality, much like the way gravity ‘bends’ the space-time continuum.
It is as science has discovered through quantum mechanics, the point where the ‘observer’ views the omniverse as ‘particles’ instead of waves. It is a deterministic viewpoint that we surmise as being correct simply because we participate in the growth and expansion of our environment. For us to derive our individual meaning of life we have to be an integralpart in that meaning; otherwise, why do we even exist?
The ego has to justify its own existence and it conveniently ‘bends’ the facts to suit its purpose in self-preservation. Originating out of the reptilian brain its mission is self-survival and propagation of the species. It seeks to grow and expand from itself in order to justify its own existence. We have grown and expanded as a ‘species’ and as we experience more and more of life we move from the ego-child ‘viewpoint’ through our current adolescence into becoming an adult. The adult perspective is recognizing the Spirit of God within all of existence and simply ‘allowing’ it to unfold natural order by understanding Divine order.
We are a part of this ‘omniversal’ clock which ticks out our experience each and every day. If we react and resist what it reflects we lose our alignment with Divine order. If we proact and allow what it reflects we align ourselves with the eddys and currents of Divine order moving and influencing natural order. Forcing experiences to occur co-creates ripples that bounce off and distort the natural progression of Divine order. Gently massaging the inherent results of Divine order aligns us with its natural flow in the growth and expansion of all of life. Every day alignment with natural order and most importantly, Divine order, affords us the ability to flow naturally in the eddys and currents of unfolding experience.
How do we align ourselves? By recognizing the Source of all existence through prayer and visualizing; listening to the Source through daily regular meditation; and serving others in the unfolding of natural order. Participate in the unfolding of Divine order into natural order by aligning yourself every day through an ongoing experience of Divine love actualizing your Divine purpose. Feel the motions of the omniverse and enjoy the ride! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
