Most of you are familiar with Rene Descartes famous saying: I think, therefore I am.
But Descartes has it backwards
, imo. I strongly feel that it should be this:
je suis, donc je pense
In English, it is:
I AM, therefore I think
Which brings us to the classical chicken-or-egg-style question: which came first, the thinking or the one who does the thinking? Which one?
Here's a basic overview of the subject of "soul":
...is an interesting take of a scientist of his views of the nature of the soul.
I will share with you my perspectives on what is the nature of the soul.
In a nutshell, it is my perception that our souls are the sparks of the One Infinite Creator, who is the Unity that underlies the worlds of illusion,
of duality in which we exist. Some have said that reality emerges from nothing; no, I say that reality emerges from Unity, which is the Source of
So, at some point along the lines of the eternal existence of Unity, the One Infinite Creator, that's all that there was -- one big, blissful,
unified Being that was eternal and omnipresent. But there was one, small problem -- It could not experience Itself objectively, since all that
existed was Unity, so there were no worlds of maya, of illusion, of light and dark, of ups and downs, of yin and yang -- it was one giant world of
Unity, from which there was no separated part.
So Unity had a dilemma -- how to experience itself objectively and let look at the meaning of the word, objectively
, first, before
8. of or pertaining to something that can be known, or to something that is an object or a part of an object; existing independent of thought or
an observer as part of reality.
Since Unity was Unity, nothing existed objectively without being separate from Unity and Unity wanted to experience Itself in an objective way, but,
in order to create that kind of objective experience, It had to create what it was not
in order to create an objective experience for
Enter Lucifer -- who really does exist -- who had the power and energy that was strong enough for him to take the position of being an opposite of
Unity, which was dis-unity and everything that Unity was not: viola, the worlds of illusion was born; the worlds of positive, negative; the worlds of
yin/yang; the worlds of light and dark and so on.
Now scientists would totally groan at the idea of the measurable, objective reality in which we exist has its source in Consciousness, but, the truth
is, IS that the objective, observable and measurable reality in which we live is an expression of consciousness
. The cutting edge of
science is now exploring the nature of consciousness and they are finding out that there is no separation between consciousness and the "objective"
reality in which consciousness created.
So Lucifer volunteered to take the job of creating and holding the power of what Unity was not, so off he went, along with 33.3% of the angels, who
also volunteered to join him in his work to hold the negative pole of the creation of the worlds of Maya, of illusion that is based on duality.
Now, in this article...
...Wilcock delves into the nature of consciousness how it is interwoven with the objective, dual reality in which we exist.
So, as soon as Unity conceived of a reality of duality existing without violating Its own existence and as soon as It found parts of Itself that were
willing participants to hold the opposite, negative pole of reality, the entire worlds of duality were immediately created and the Universe as we know
it was born.
The One Infinite Creator had each galaxy -- called logos, according to the Ra Material -- ( www.lawofone.info...
) create its own rules, so they
all had their own creations play along the rules of evolving only along the rules of positive growth, not allowing any of the creation -- the souls
that existed in each galaxy -- to experience negative feelings, negative experiences, negative choices -- the full play of the Law of Free Will. Each
galaxy had Free Will, but it was a highly-restricted one.
After a while, the One Infinite Creator was not pleased with the results of positive-only soul growth, as most souls did not have the animated energy,
the sheer vitality, the intense spark that the One Infinite Creator really was, so the One Infinite Creator decided to allow one galaxy to allow each
of the souls contained in it to fully experience the Law of Free Will (also called the First Law of Distortion) and to fully feel the effects of
choices -- good and bad, positive and negative, good and evil, light and dark, etc -- hence, the long-held legend of the "fall of man", the "fall
of Lucifer, the angels" -- became fully cognizant with each of the souls that had incarnated into the galaxy that had the fullest-possible
expression/experience of the Law of Free Will.
The success of that first galaxy in the creating powerful, intense and awakened souls so startled and please the One Infinite Creator that It allowed
all galaxies -- the many Logos of the Universe -- to allow total Free Will in the inhabitants of each galaxy that chose that means of soul growth.
So now the model of a galaxy fully allowing Free Will is predominant throughout the Universe, but what is fascinating is that the negative pole, the
darkness of maya, the evil that exists in maya, can ONLY be described as a lack of
, rather than a real force on its own, so dark is defined as
an absence of light; evil is an absence of love; hate is an absence of compassion, etc.
So now we have whole worlds, whole Social Memory Complexes of recombined souls who have gone through the process of separation, growth through
experiencing Free Will and the re-joining the Creator at the end, fully energized by the journey of life.
So life is a journey; the destination is our Common Source; the goal is to become energized, more alive, more vital and more filled with the essence
of Life and Love that is a part of Unity, from which we all are a part.
Science and Spirit are One.
