IN THE AIR TONIGHT
Funny thing about reading creation stories, there's no mention of creating the air? This AIR, is "pneuma" and in Hebrew it is called "ruach." Perhaps there was no mention of it being created, because it was already there.
These words (pneuma, and ruach) mean "Spirit, Wind, Air, Breath." Also, in Greek the "Holy Spirit" is called "Hagios Pneuma." This Spirit is what keeps us alive. We inhale and exhale, we live within consciousness, and we ourselves are an essence of that Spirit. The entirety of the universe, is that Spirit.
Let's Take a look at Genesis from a metaphysical perspective instead of the literal and historical church perspective. You may be surprised at just how much our ancestors knew about things ... and un-things.
Genesis Chapter 1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
~"Heaven is mind (the unseen Spirit - masculine), Earth is physical form (man/matter - feminine/creative). The definition of God we are using is that of a nonlocal, multidimensional ‘event’, a consciousness that exists outside of our reality, free of the restrictions of time and space."
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
~"The physical (the human body/matter) was without form, and void. The waters are ‘spiritual’ reality and by spiritual, I mean invisible, the mental aspect of reality, the hidden quantum force that directs, shapes, and influences everything around us. ‘Quantum’ reality might be a better term to use."
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
~"The light that is referred to is not the light of day - which comes later - this, is the ‘light’ of consciousness."
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
~" This is the separation of conscious from non-conscious."
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
~"Day is conscious awareness, night is non-consciousness – the first day is the moment when we first became conscious of ourselves."
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
~"A firmament is a “firm unwavering place” of focus – the mind. The mind is the separating firmament between outer ‘spiritual/quantum’ reality and inner ‘spiritual/quantum’ reality."
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
~"The actual act of separating inner ‘spiritual/quantum’ reality from the general outer ‘spiritual/quantum’ reality, the act of individualising the ‘self’."
And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
~"‘Heaven’ is the mind, as opposed to matter ... the connection point between inner spiritual/quantum reality, and outer spiritual/quantum reality."
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
~"The act of joining the mind with the physical body – the body is under the mind."
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and God saw that it was good.
~"The ‘Earth’ is the ‘physical’ body ... matter. The seas are the collective term for all unexpressed and unformed thoughts and ideas that contain all potentialities – the seas of thought."
So ... not bad for a bunch of primitive folks huh? You see ... this same event description goes all the way back to ancient Egypt And Greece. This process of consciousness ... the energy that is the matrix of all life ... Spirit ... has never changed. Energy cannot be created, and it cannot be destroyed. This Source Energy is who we are ... collectively. You wanna call it God, ok. Then we're all made out of God stuff. Because thats all there was ... and is. The I AM that you and I ARE. Life, existence, being.
I told you there was something in the air tonight ... and it is a universal consciousness. The word "Universe" means the entire cosmos, all people, things, all together, whole, and literally turned into ONE. The universe that WE are a part of, is one living organism ... One Source ... One. All is One. There is no "other." Here is Wisdom. When you know this, the wars will stop, the famine will end, and sin will live no more.
Ego will follow Spirit in default mode. All will be Go(o)d. We will merge Heaven and Earth back into one again. All will have been learned, and all will be perfected.
Just a thought ...
