Creation out of Nothing. Creation out of Everything. Those are the two major vertical polarities of existence. In a hubris worthy of apology I might phrase it like this: God created us so that we create God. Maybe a little more humble in nature:Where there was Nothingness, Everything became to turn Everything into the bridge to Nothingness again.

But that's not the point of today's sketch. This is about the role and nature of consciousness. It is the evolution of a thought, which still has to keep growing to confirm its own validity, but it's ripe to be shared, if only to inspire contradiction, diversification, acceptance or simply dismissal by all of us.

I come to believe that consciousness is purely aware with its key potential to widen that awareness and come to ever greater clarity about the roles of stages higher and lower as well as itself.

Consciousness is not creative, but aids creativity.

Consciousness is not analytical, but guides analysis.

Consciousness is not emotional, but regulates emotion.

Consciousness does not decide, but informs decision.

Consciousness has no action, but seeks correction through it, or stands to be judged for them.

It is the bridge, the heart, the core of what receives formation, wired to the supernal origin, wired to the dense realm of matter, but born blind, numb, deaf and mute, waiting to receive its lessons on Earth and its grades from Heaven.

What we are here is the only way in which consciousness evolves. Nowhere else can it change, receive new experiences and receive the devices to understand its own purpose. Like an infant it drops out of the womb of God, and like any being it has to learn to see, learn to walk, learn to speak and learn to understand. It does so, however, not within one life, but over the course of great many lifetimes in the material sphere.

Consciousness is the Soul, like human are you. Die now as a human and you will be born with the same degree of awareness only to suffer again until you can continue to evolve "consciously". Live as long as possible and with proper readiness to learn, so that you be granted a continuation based on your degree of awareness rather than a correction for your failings. All the teachings that sound like blind devotion are probably mostly misunderstood, because they are supposed to humble us in order to accept our duties with some clarity about what they really are for. Nothing is for ourselves, we do not exist for our sake, but we're given the grace of love and joy, desire and passion in sustainable form, letting us know that the right thing is a good thing. Mistakes are there to help us understand, not to cull us from the process by some harsh judgement. We are, if you will, product of a requisition, written in the method of God for the process of Existence. Therefore none of us will ever have to fear being destroyed as individual consciousness, but should embrace the choice to avoid the pain of stagnation that comes, if we roll through life blindly, selfishly and ignorant to others and thereby to the whole. The fruit of our labor is not relevant to God directly, but relevant to our function, which is relevant to God. We are aware of our labor, but often unaware of our function, because this we do not have to be. It might help us to understand more of this, but it is not a requirement, because we are created with the intrinsic power to function. Only our infantile confusion about the rewarding sense of joy and corrupting power of desire can have us ignore or even fight this power to function. But this I will leave to other sketches, those from before and those to come.

A little addendum...

I have a fairly devout and wonderful friend, who's very devout mother started to include me in her mailing list, often sending some Christian humor, observations and other curiosities to my inbox. One day she was sending a link to a video of a train, building its own tracks. People were very fascinated with it and I thought "hmmm...yeah, that's fascinating, sure" and frowned for a moment myself. "Why would that clip be fascinating enough to a religious group?" I thought. Seems awfully geeky to me, especially because it really just showed the whole process without any commentary or some pleasant timelaps. There it goes, a giant contraption with all the stuff going on to lay down the tracks in front of itself and lots of people around it, guiding the process, running all around it, everyone with his own specific task. And, yeah, laugh at me for not having caught it in the very first second, but it dawned on me a rather great while later. You must understand, ordinarily those emails are not particularly insightful. Some verses of the Bible, some jokes, some pretty flowers or other pictures with praise to the Lord, you know. But there it was...a perfectly, deeply insightful analogy seemingly out of nowhere. It is quite exactly the model of the universe and its purpose to the Infinite according to my own early revelations. The infinite has every universe much like this very contraption laying the tracks for its own process. We operate within it just like those guys to aid that process, albeit not with our conscious actions as much as with our intuitive ones. Any way in which one wants to look at this, it is a beautiful analogy and so simple and practical.
I just thought of that again and felt like sharing that with you.

Hmmm, "Prime Mover". Many expressions have their explanation chiefly with the one who uttered them, but I can give you what I feel about it, of course. All of existence is the product of motion. And this does not refer to the motion within existence, but the motion of the Singularity that, as it describes the volume of the universe, creates the space and all vibrations inside of it, looping over and over again through the entire process. Each new loop produces a slight variation and these slight variations represent the vibrations that we perceive as matter. And the variations of that we perceive as time. But what ever moves this singularity, this I would consider the "Prime Mover". This could either be considered the Infinite, God Itself, or some subordinate to the Infinite, a sub-system, if you will.

As we distinguish between different aspects of ourselves, the hierarchy of our actions, we could personify each stage or attribute, turning Thirst and Hunger into brothers, Ambition into a relentless warrior, Bliss into a beautiful girl in a lush garden, Hate into a bitter old hag, Want into a playful boy, Need into a caring mother and so forth. Such do we find the aspects of God personified along the Tree of Life. Such are the angels. And maybe, just maybe, such are we ourselves. The question therefore is, does "Prime Mover" refer to the aspect of God that comes first in the creation of a finite universe such as ours? Or does it actually transcend all aspects and thereby tries to technically refer to the Creator Itself?

Well, anyway, thank you very much, as usual, for your wonderful reaction and inspiring feedback, Being!

And that goes for all of you, of course! Thanks Blaze and Sky. That quote is funny and easy to relate to. However, since my curious breakthrough in regards to the soul, which I owe greatly to one of those rare moments at day break, I know that some of these revelations linger until the day we understand them. And when we do, they mark a turning point in our consciousness and thereby our lives. At least this is how it has been to me.

Funny, because just about half an hour ago I thought about that every single day is a lifetime on its own. We get born in the morning and die at night. I wonder, if that is partially what he considers a day's unity?

Timur, what does the expression "Prime Mover" mean to you. You are touching on that at the beginning of this essay. I have always asked this question of myself. Any answer is not definative but could be very helpful to my inquiry.

Timur,

I'M usually with you all the way.This time I frowned in effort to  fully comprehend - until the second half of this essay when I once again was 100% there with you in the depth of the search to explain most important answers to Man's existence and the reason why we are here.

That is when the levels of the planes of The Tree of Life came to mind as this saying I constantly remind people with "Rising on the planes of the Tree of Life toward the levels of Higher Consciousness."
