Okay, this is literally one of the first 'philosophical' questions I remember asking myself, even as a very young child (probably around 5 or 6.)
'How did all of this begin?'
I do believe in God now (and did as a young child too, although I have never been 'religious.)
So let's assume that, as the spiritual teachings go, God is Infinite. God has no beginning and no End. Time is an illusion. Physical reality is an illusion. All that ever has and ever will be is happening right Now.
Okay, cool. I can dig that.
BUT WHAT STARTED IT??
I mean...how did 'God' come in to existence. And again, I know the rhetoric is 'God has no beginning and no End.' But seriously serious here, how is that possible? I don't believe our little human brains can grasp the idea.
But that has never stopped me from trying.
Where does time start and finish, where does the universe stop.
What were you before you were born and did you just become existence, self aware...How?
Its called faith, cant pretend its anything else than that. We are finite, we dont understand, we cant.
If God is real and I believe He is, then thats His problem. My faith is in Him.
