I remember (not so) long back I used to have very deep philosophical discussions (or we thought so..) with two of my best friends. We used to end up talking till the wee hours of dawn.
This particular day, we started with the most discussed topic perhaps since the moment when people started debating- Existence of God. Each of us trying to put forth our idea, mixed with what we have learnt from our spiritual guides, what we have read from the books and various theories in physics, astronomy, and so on.
Somehow, out of the blue, an image flashed in front of my eyes and disappeared as soon as it came. A realization dawned on me, it felt profound. The image was of a cell, which zoomed out to show other cells in the vicinity, all forming organs, organ system, and finally a human. Wasn’t this a perfect example of the souls as cells, and the collective souls, becoming a single consciousness, rising to a much finer vibration, called God?
Aren’t the souls, like cells, experiencing life as we know, having a life of their own, though being guided by higher function that governs their movement, roles, death? In that case, it might well stand true that God is in each us, and we are God. Why don’t we push the boundaries further, and include everything in the universe, and think about the possible life in other planets, and parallel universes. Also add the emotions, creativity, and abstract stuff. do not forget to look at the elaborate setup called universe, and the space, vacuum, where everything is in constant motion, the very dynamics of evolution. don’t you feel the whole stuff alive?
Whatever we experience, we enrich ourselves, which in turn, enriches the whole unity Consciousness, and vice versa.
How do you feel about God now?
Mind boggling, eh? Perhaps it would be an understatement…
