Before there was a beginning, there was just the divine. Before there was time, there was only “God.” Before there was form, there was only the formless. Within the formless, forms came into being as a natural expression of the formless. In the beginning the divine manifested as the heavens and the earth. The heavens were the divine truth. The earth was the physical manifestation of the divine. The earth was formless. It had no separateness but was one formless form. Then divine consciousness entered the cosmos of forms. God said “let there be light.” This consciousness began to take the form of all the substance of the cosmos. Time began. Consciousness divided itself. Day and night came into being. Matter took shape. Consciousness as the earth divided itself. There was water and there was dry land. Consciousness divided itself further to be plants and animals and living things. Consciousness then took the form of what we call humans. These humans were special since consciousness could become aware of itself in the human form. Man walked with God in the garden. Then consciousness in human form further divided itself into concepts and ideas and labels. Man named the plants and animals. Consciousness in human form became aware of self. Man needed a partner. Man needed community as it became aware of self. Then mankind took the concept of self and created self-centeredness. Man walked with God in the garden as a centered self and then “fell” into the world of self-centered. Good and bad were created as the self-centered preferred one thing over another. The apple was pleasing to the eye. Consciousness became unconscious. Death became real. The illusion of a separate self was born. The identity with the body/mind took the place of awareness. The seeds of consciousness became the illusion. The dreamer forgot it was dreaming. And this was as it should be.

Oh yeah, where you come from is everything. Every single breathing human has thoughts about where they … Continue reading Where you come from
Sometimes it is so hard to break out of our traditions. We just can't "see" another way because we have always "seen" one way. When we do break free it is liberating and powerful and often world-changing. Does anyone have an iPhone? We applaud Steve Jobs and think "here is a guy who could think … Continue reading What Now – defeating the works of the devil
Mat 5:12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (ESVST) Why do we read this verse in its negative contrast? What I mean is why do we say that the reward is conditional on the suffering? Here is another question: why do … Continue reading Rewards in Heaven???
Do kids in school still read George Orwell's "1984?" I read it in school at it wasn't yet 1984. When I read it, I remember thinking 1984 was really far in the future. It was only about 5 years away but to me it was a look into a crystal ball of a possible future. … Continue reading Future past and present
