In the beginning, there was nothing – until Nothing woke up, startled by the realization that it must be Something! After all, how can “nothing” exist without Something to define it? With this one shocking revelation, Nothing-Something made it possible for Anything and Everything to exist!
You can think of this momentous event as the First Vibration of Awareness and Action, the Divine Spark of Creation, the Birth of Original Thought, the First Impulse to Be and Create, the First Response to the Promise of Being and Creation, the Birth of Unconditional Love, the Birth of All That Is, the Birth of Zero and One (0 & 1), the Birth of God, Allah or the concept of a Supreme Being.
You can also think of this defining moment as the Birth of Consciousness or Aware Energy, whose nature it is to perceive and conceive – to think, feel, act and react. In theory, it was, and is, ALL these things and more, including the moment Aware Energy or Consciousness learned how to condense a portion of itself into what we, in human form, call “matter.”
Nothing and Something, Awareness and Action – Each Needs the Other for Anything to Exist.
Think about it: Aware Energy (Consciousness), pushed from within by the Impulse to Be and Create, and pulled from without by the Promise of Being and Creation, is the Source and Substance of All That Is. How can this be? Because, without Energy or the power to act, Awareness cannot know and express itself. And without the presence of Awareness, what defines and creates a need for Energy? Yes, one needs the other for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to exist!
From a human perspective, “matter” itself is an illusion formed by the action of thought and imagination. According to scientific research, a hydrogen atom is 99.9999999999996% empty space. Why don’t we fall right through each other? Because electrostatic fields that attract and repulse each other provide our biological senses with the illusion of density or “solid” matter.
To borrow the immortal words of Neil Armstrong and the US Space Administration, accepting that Energy possesses Awareness, or Awareness possesses Energy, “is one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind.”
For the fun of it, accept the idea that Aware Energy (Consciousness) is the Source and Substance of All That Is. By defining yourself as a Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy, suddenly, you become:
- Both one with and separate from All That Is.
- Both a product of creation and creation itself!
How does it feel to imagine yourself as a unique Multidimensional, Vibrational Being of Aware Energy in an infinite field of Aware Energy? How does it feel to be the self-aware “I” within your body, mind and All That Is, the intermediary or “Decider-in-Chief” between your body, the world and All That Is?
- I think, feel, act and react (conceive and perceive); therefore, I AM. (expanded version of “I think therefore I am” by Rene Descartes)
- As I think, feel, act and react, I create.
- To change what I create, I change what I think and feel, how I act and react.
- The self is my seat of power.
- The present is my point of power.
- Value fulfillment is the promise of my power.
- Being and Creation is the actualization of my power.
