“The Source: enigma of our past, our present, and our future.”

Since the dawn of humankind…

Since the dawn of humankind, we have been in great wonder and awe of the Creator of our universe and everything that exists around us. While we have been perplexed by this all pervasive entity, the ancients viewed the Creator in many forms and an equal amount of legends emerge telling us of various capabilities and wondrous events.

The Source is beyond understanding with our five senses  

It is likely that the Source appears to be enigmatic in our collective eyes since we are unable to comprehend an entity that wields so much power and such immense intelligence, is beyond the grasp of our five senses, and does not exist within this time/space continuum as we understand other objects and entities do so.

There is no beginning and there is no end 

The first major hurdle to comprehend and overcome when we are attempting to accept the Source as the cause and effect of creation is the idea that there is no beginning and there is no ending. In the present physical existence humankind finds itself in, we are conditioned that everything has a start and everything has a finish. Our life has a beginning and our life has an ending; relationships begin and relationships end; seasons begin and seasons end; and friendships begin and friendships end.

Our conditioning has failed us 

This is what we expect and accept within this plane of existence and deem it impossible and improbable that something can have no beginning and no ending. However, we view the Source through the jaundiced eyes of our physical realm of existence although this entity does not adhere to our understanding and definition of human space, human volume, or human time.

From nothing came everything 

Another concern of many is that when the moment of creation occurred, in that nano-second in time, all physical and non-physical things were created in the same instant. As a result, all the thoughts, knowledge, experiences, situations, and people necessary to achieve our goals were created as well. This must be so since all things including thoughts, knowledge, experiences, situations, and people are energy, vibrational energy, and since energy can neither be created nor destroyed it merely takes on a different state than the present state that we see or understand at the present moment.

We are vibrational energy as everything is  

We believe that such things as thought and knowledge were not created at the sacred moment and all the while we also believe that physical bodies end our earthly existence and our future existence as well. Hence, while we have taken on a physical body, nonetheless, we are still part of the Source due to our vibrational energy and must return to the One when our earthy time has expired.  And the same can be said about thoughts, knowledge, experiences, and situations; even though they may have manifested as entities, they are still part of the primordial energy and must remain as such.

The Natural Laws are the grease that sustain and maintain the universe 

Next, there are those who are concerned that the universe does not maintain and sustain itself based upon precise Natural Laws that were created by the Source. There are a myriad of Laws that are concise as any mathematical formula which allow us to send rockets to the moon and satellites to distant stars while we plan and time each step in their journey within a fraction of a second to achieve success. These Laws hold together the universe, keep our planet in the correct orbit, and provide the proper atmosphere for us to live life here on Earth.

We can’t see the Natural Laws but we can see their effects 

Furthermore, we are unable to see gravity or magnetic fields, merely the effects of the Natural Laws, although they exist and can be proven scientifically. For example, when we throw a football or a baseball, we never doubt for a moment that it will eventually fall to earth as gravity takes over and pulls the ball to the ground. And when it comes to seeing the influence of the Natural laws, we do not even see the objects with our eyes as such, rather, we see objects as vibrational forces which we then transform into objects. Still, the continuance of the universe is not and never will be fate or luck or coincidence.

The Source is our benevolent care giver

Now, many are hard pressed to believe that the Source is a benevolent one when they witness such suffering and sadness on this earthly plane of existence. However, we are put through pain and pleasure as a true measure of our Self. We receive pleasure since we can accept it; and we receive pain since we can accept it. We are only given what we can endure, and we endure such trials as a means to grow past a problem we have faced in the past or we face in the present. If we were only given pleasure, would we grow as spiritual beings? If we were given only pain, would we grow as spiritual beings?

Trust the Source…express your gratitude 

We must trust the Source to give us what we need to grow and develop into more spiritual beings, therefore, do not question why you get doses of pain and pleasure. Rather, feel gratitude for the pain and pleasure you receive since these both forge a more spiritual being.

The Source exists within each of us, we are inseparable 

Finally, many are of the opinion that the Source is located in some far-away place and with little compassion for the human race or any other creature that inhabits the universe. However, the Source exists within and around each of us regardless of the place, our gender, age, or social rank. You cannot separate the inseparable, however, you can lose focus and awareness of the sacred connection which then leads us to believe that the Source is anything but benevolent.

Listen to your inner voice to guide you, to protect you

Each of us only has to listen to the voice deep within us to know if we are in harmony or disharmony with the Source. Harmony is about love and compassion and helping others while disharmony is about fear and hate and taking advantage of others. Each of us has that option and hence, free will to make choices. You have the choice to lead a life guided by spirituality or you have a choice to lead a life guided by physicality. Those choices which serve us best are those that put the Source first and then others next.

You have a choice to enjoy endless possibilities 

While the Source continues to be enigmatic in many people’s eyes, there are those who have a deep and solid connection who believe otherwise. The ones who hold the Source first live a life of boundless opportunities and joy while those who hold the physical plane of existence first live a life of fear and frustration never even realizing that they have the same opportunities to feel free and joyful in this physical realm of existence. The choice is yours.

Does life only exist within the seen world?

6. Life is now and here 

(Osho’s Sixth New Commandment)

Life exists everywhere

Life is all around us; when we open our eyes and see a translucent blue sky high overhead ablaze with yellow sunshine, we come alive; when we walk along a mountain stream and hear the pure rushing waters, we come alive; and when we touch the warm cheek of our love, we come alive. These physical sensations are capable of satiating our primordial yearnings as we are constantly reminded that we are alive, one who lives in the third dimension.

blurred_linesLive within the metaphysical world 

Our five senses…smell, sight, touch, taste, and sound…act as our connection with the physical world. These allow us to navigate and survive the seen world, the world around us that can be measured, monitored, and manipulated. Although they are a multiplicity, they are nonetheless a commonality that is shared by all of humanity. Yet, it is not without a steep price; many are so wrapped up in the sensations they receive and enjoy from their immediate physical world they neglect to experience what true wonders surround them in their metaphysical world.

Life consists of endless possibilities 

Perhaps, we are half alive; permanently sleep walking so to speak when all we can conceive and believe in and of life is what we acquire from our five physical senses. We must wipe the sleep from our half-opened eyes and see what life is, it is not an illusion, but a reality that is boundless, endless, limitless. Quantum physicists are of the opinion that the unseen world of molecules holds all possibilities at this specific moment, and it is merely our focus that causes one of our many possibilities to become our one reality.

Listen to your own conductor

However, we do not need science or white-coated scientists to validate that life exists at various levels and with its many possibilities and outcomes; we only need to listen to the music that plays within our souls to validate our true feelings and innate knowledge about what it is, where it is, and how it is. Listen attentively to the music you hear within your soul, created by a conductor, musicians, and musical instruments…there is no need to look without when the answer to life, your life is within. Be yourself, but not another. That what you collect from others, read from books, or watch from the news is not real, it is but a superficial here and now and has little truth or meaning in this life.

Here is not the only now 

Be aware of the real here and now and not the unreal here and now. When we are only here and now, we are far away from truth; when we are only here and now, we are far away from the Source; when we are only here and now, we are far away from reality.  While we are far away from the truth the truth is never far away from you; when you are far away from the Source, the Source is never far away from you; while you are far away from reality; reality is not far away from you. It is living by your physical senses that keep the truth far away, the Source far away, and reality far away.

Potential is without a number 

There is not just one here and now…there exists many here’s and now’s at this exact moment, and all of them teaming with a myriad of possibility and potentiality. So, to only focus upon the seen is a travesty, one that limits your level of consciousness and awareness. We are looking at life with a tarnished mirror, one that distorts the reality of what we are looking at, what we are admiring, and what we are searching for. However, it is when we accept that there are various here’s and now’s that we truly see life as it is, not one that is shrouded by a dense fog that creates illusions. There is life with truth when we comprehend that the unseen and seen worlds are one of singularity, and each must be experienced in this life.
