Great Consciousness that Creates Everything

“The thought of a man has a transforming power. The good, right, nice thought can transform your desperation into a quiet and pleasant condition.

“The thought of a man is a magic wand with which you can create miracles When you lose it, you lose everything.

“God will help you after you have tried everything. What is impossible for a man is possible for God. …

“People become stupid when they ask idols and made-up gods for help. And what do they get from them? They get nothing, and in addition, they lose whatever they have. Pray to the live God, to the Great Consciousness, which is perfection.” ~Biensa Douno

“All phenomena are the products of Consciousness. … Since Consciousness is the source of all life, being and form, energy and matter, any application of this Force has unlimited power in the universe. … We cannot understand the world through our sense perceptions only through Consciousness is this possible.” ~Gene Savoy

Great Consciousness

First, we have to clear up what we mean by consciousness. Some people think in terms of the human brain-mind with its conscious and subconscious parts. They then assume that consciousness is a reference to the conscious mind of man. It isn’t.

Consciousness is something that exists outside of us. It exists without us. It existed before man. It will exist after physical man is long gone. Consciousness is singular. There is only one. But since consciousness created all that exists, there is some consciousness in everything. There is consciousness in the conscious mind, but the two are not the same.

The Great Consciousness is the one consciousness that created everything. It is also called Divine Consciousness, Universal Consciousness, or Christ Consciousness. Some call it the consciousness of God. Other say that it is God, that God is the Great Consciousness and nothing else. However you think of it, the point remains the same. The Great Consciousness crated all and we are part of it. That is not to say that each of us individually is the Great Consciousness. We are a small part of it. All of the little bits of consciousness found in all that exists put together make up the Great consciousness. Continue reading “Great Consciousness that Creates Everything”

Elohim

Elohim in the Book of Genesis

“In the very first chapter of the book of Genesis the plurality of God is very prominent. It cannot fail to draw the attention of a critical and secular reader. If you read just a few verses on the first page, down to verse 26, you will see: …And God said, Let us make man in our image, The word used in the Hebrew for God is ‘Elohim’ which is a plural word, and literally means ‘Mighty Ones’.

“So, if these religious people insist that every word is literally true, then they must accept that their God is really a group of Mighty Ones. If we are to take it literally it means: .. And the Mighty Ones said, let us make man in our image, From which we should deduce that these putative ‘Mighty Ones’ look like us. That is the outcome of a literal understanding. In fact, in Genesis 1 v 1, the very first words of the Bible, the word translated as ‘God’ is actually the plural word ‘Elohim’ or Mighty Ones. ….In the beginning Mighty Ones created the heaven and the earth. ” ~George Curtis and Jack Lewis

Ancient Truth

The authors of the book “Ancient Knowledge” are using the information quoted above to tell us that we shouldn’t interpret everything in the Bible literally. To do so, they say, leads to contradictions. The primary message they are trying to point out with the words from Genesis is that God is called “Elohim”, a plural word. There are also phrases like “Let us make man in our image”. These are example, the authors say, of why the Bible should not be interpreted too literally.

While they certainly have a point about the Bible, and most other ancient scripture, being allegory, the references to God in a plural form may not be one of those cases. Christians, after all, say that God is three persons in one. So the fact that there is but one real God doesn’t necessarily mean He is singular. Continue reading “Elohim in the Book of Genesis”

tenants on Earth

Tenants to Stewards to Co-Creators of Earth and More

“Consider a person who builds a nice house and rents it to some tenants who manage to ruin it within a year. I interpret this as follows: God has created the world very sensibly, but we ruin it and search for the cause outside of ourselves instead of within.

“The Law states: God loves all beings equally. But not all benefit from His love. Some are aware of this, and yet others are not. God loves human beings as much as the angels, but there is a difference: angels are aware of God’s love and are open to receiving it, but human beings are not always aware of it.

“Consider those foolish people who build a house, but put only one window in it. Others build a house with large windows through which abundant light passes. You might say, ‘Look how this person is showered with abundance.’ This is because his windows are larger.” ~Biensa Douno

Tenants on Earth

Our egotism and arrogance makes many of us forget that we are the tenants on planet Earth, not the owners. Yes, I know. We have deeds to our houses and pink slips on our cars. They prove that we own them. But deeds and pink slips are just a tool we created to feed our own fantasies of ownership. They have no effect on reality whatsoever.

Tenants in Reality

There is an even higher level than the tenants on Earth concept. The entire universe of matter is like a squatter on property it doesn’t own. Squatters, in the form of the fallen angels, created the realm of matter from the reality of spirit. Those fallen ones can claim ownership of the physical realm, but in reality, it isn’t theirs. They created it from the spiritual worlds which they do not own. It is an illusion, a distortion, of spirit. And only God owns spirit, only God creates spirit. So the squatters don’t really own the shack called matter that they have built in the land of spirit that isn’t theirs.

Considering that, even if we do have ownership to bits and pieces of the material world, it is only illusion that we are claiming to own! It is like a child saying he has a pony when he means that he colored one in a coloring book. Continue reading “Tenants to Stewards to Co-Creators of Earth and More”

Creation and Destruction, Positive and Negative

“In true Gnostic fashion, the alchemists were aware that the capacity for creation and the capacity for destruction were very finely balanced – nowhere more so than in themselves. Whoever held the secret of life had a power for evil that was as great as his power for good. These were the men who ultimately understood the symbolism of the prime rule of alchemy: use only one vessel, one fire and one instrument, which is the self. Through their work they were aware of the Power of their own Being. They knew the characteristics of the Secret Fire, the serpent power that moves upward in spirals and of the great primitive force hidden in all matter both organic and inorganic.” ~Bernard Simon

Creation and Destruction

Many believe that creation and destruction go hand-in-hand. That you cannot create a new thing without destroying something else. That is not true. Real creation doesn’t destroy. Carving a statue out of rock is not creation or destruction. It is modification. The shape of the rock was changed, but noting really new was created.

On the other hand, chopping down trees to make room for houses or farms is destruction because you are replacing something living with something dead. Even if the wood from those trees is used to build the houses, you have destroyed living trees to make something artificial. That is destruction, not creation. True creation gives you something where there was previously nothing except energy.

Finely Balanced

Something many don’t understand is that natural energy, even spiritual energy, is neutral. It isn’t good or evil. The good or evil part depends on how you use that energy. If you take in that energy, and send it out to other full of thoughts of peace, love, and harmony, you are making it positive energy. But you can just as easily send forth that same energy embedded with thoughts of hate, fear, and prejudice and it will be a negative influence on those receiving it.

The Story of Two Wolves

Those energies and feelings within us may be “finely balanced” but we can choose which to use and which not to use. As the old Native American saying goes, we decide whether we will be like the good wolf or the bad wold by which one we choose to feed. As we continue to evolve, we will eventually rid ourselves of that dark side. Until then, we must be careful not to let it take control. Creation and destruction may walk hand in hand in the material world, but that can be corrected. Continue reading “Creation and Destruction, Positive and Negative”
