WIND OF GENESIS CREATION
In the beginning ... it's all there. All the allegory, metaphor, myth, reality, and whatever it is that speaks to the heart of man as to how everything got here and why ... except for one thing ... sort of. You can see Adam (adamah/clay/red earth) and Eve (Chawwah/breath/live) as real people, or as ... something more ... an esoteric message contained within an allegory.
Let's first look at Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 specifically:
1 - "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 - The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters."
So now ... a bit of a metaphysical rendering ... just bear with me on this for a moment. I do have a point to reach. Let's go with a bit more colour added to the black and white:
"In the beginning (at the point of origin) God (Source Energy) created the heavens (Spirit/unseen) and the earth (matter/seen). The earth (matter) was without form (not material/physical yet) and void (blank canvas/the uncreated nothingness that was the Source of everything created/unlimited potentiality), and darkness was over the surface of the deep (unaware/lacking consciousness or awareness), and the Spirit (PNEUMA/RUACH) of God (the power to give Life) was moving over the surface emanating from the void of the waters (Source of all Life)."
Keep in mind since the stars and sun came later, the term spoken of "and then there was light" refers to the light that is consciousness. Photon energy. What we consist of. And also keep in Mind that if God/Source is creating stuff ... then the stuff he is creating is made out of God Stuff since there is nothing else. This would mean that everything that exists today is made out of God Stuff. Everything. It's like God Depot. This means you and I, and the chair you're sitting in, are made out of God/Source.
So now back to the stuff being created. Plants, firmament, animals, people, etc. - from a ... void? Well, the first thing we must ask is how can anything come from a void, which is "nothing?" Science and religion have fought over this for 2,000+ years. Science says you can't get something from nothing, and religion says there wasn't "nothing," there was God. But, Biblically speaking, God says there was nothingness ... void. Greek word "Void": Cosmos, chaos, vast, empty, null, gaping, abyss, etc. As you can see ... a multifaceted word with multiple meanings.
As a Greek, I can tell you that when we call someone a "voide" it means they are empty. basically, a shell with no content ... clueless. It is used in a derogatory manner these days. But the void is the most amazing of all. Like ZERO is the most important number in math. Zero doesn't mean nothing, it has a mathematical whole value and as such holds together the entirety of Math, which is the only absolute Truth known to the Universe. Even the code of all computers systems in the words is nothing more than one's and zero's.
So clearly, the Book of Genesis, hints that there were elements already in existence that need not be "created." The most important being "Pneuma/Ruach" ... Spirit, breath, wind, air. This would be life-force. This Pneuma or Spirit Air / Ether (Aether) meaning is multifaceted:
1 - the upper, pure, bright air; ether; the heavens (Ouranos)
2 - the air or sky; light of day (Ouranos, Phota)
3 - the upper world, the earth being the lower world. (As above, so below)
4 - the brightness or ethereal (otherworldly/spiritual) matter surrounding a deity
The Strong's Biblical Concordance gives is the following information on the word "Pneuma":
Strong's Concordance word #4151. "PNEUMA"
pneuma: wind, spirit
Original Word: πνεῦμα, ατος, τό
Part of Speech: Noun, Neuter
Phonetic Spelling: (pnyoo'-mah) (or pnevmah)
Short Definition: wind, breath, spirit
Definition: wind, breath, spirit.
4151 pneúma – properly, spirit (Spirit), wind, or breath. The most frequent meaning (translation) of 4151 (pneúma) in the NT is "spirit" ("Spirit"). Only the context however determines which sense(s) is meant.
Any of the above renderings (spirit-Spirit, wind, breath) of 4151 (pneúma) is always theoretically possible (spirit, Spirit, wind, breath). But when the attributive adjective ("holy") is used, it always refers to the Holy Spirit. "Spirit" ("spirit") is by far the most common translation (application) of 4151 (pneúma). This is done by adding the Greek word "Hagios" meaning holy. See Strong's word #40.
The Hebrew counterpart (rûach) has the same range of meaning as 4151 (pneúma), i.e. it likewise can refer to spirit/Spirit, wind, or breath.
So to keep this from rambling on for a very long time, in the book of Genesis (the book of creation/birth) - Genesis is Greek for "descent, to be born, birth, beginning, to generate," and in Hebrew the word is beresheth - and BEFORE anything was created, there pre-existed a formless void of Spirit. This was the point of origin for all material existence to be brought forth into manifestation. Total unbounded, and unlimited potentiality.
We are co-creators in this universe. We set the intent, the cause, and bring forth the effect. We are NOT individuals, but an essential part of an entire Matrix of conscious fiber that weaves throughout the universe and multiverses unseen by the human eye, yet projecting the image onto the screen from within us through the eye. We are "the light of the world." There is no "other" as we are all one, and that ONE is resident within the Mind of the All ... the Mind of God/Source.
The 2 book of John says "as Jesus is, so are we in this world." Jesus represents man and his spiritual potential to recognize within, the spark of God/Source, and become the Christ. We are the begotten of God. ALL of mankind. Jesus was quoted as saying "you will do greater things than I." Jesus said he does nothing unless it comes from the Father. He asked who is my Mother, my brothers and sisters? SPIRIT is Father God/Source ... the energy of all there is. MATTER is Mother of all living. Eve, Mary, Miriam, MR ... in essence ... Father and Mother created the child. WE are that child.
There is so much more, but I will stop with this final statement. God/Source experiences life in a material world (lower vibrational energy) with us, through us, and AS US. As we grow with experience, so does the Almighty. Choose wisely your thoughts and actions. The universe depends on it. You matter as much in this Matrix of consciousness as everyone else. The past has passed, the future doesn't exists until we collectively create it, and all that ever is, was, and will be is right NOW.
Every material object that we create has always existed. All we do is re-arrange the materials that have always been here. We cannot make dirt, or water, but we can mix it and bring forth the mud of it's combination. We are ALL equal and key to the co-creation of the future. We choose right from wrong. Choose wisely. All you will ever need is already here. Understand this secret from the Wisdom of the Ages and you will succeed and prosper ... physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Follow the 7 Universal Laws of Hermes, the Immutable Laws of the Universe ... and you shall always benefit in this game of life.
Just a thought ...
