The Physics of Co-Creating “Reality”
Long ago, I received the intuition that God’s energy in creation is the wave form of that energy, and that what “blips” into existence as particles, or matter, is an expression of the Light of God, condensed into particle form. The dual nature of light, that is, both particle and wave, creates the fundamental nature of Maya, or the dual nature of “reality” in this universe. Maya may be described as the illusion of “reality” in this universe.
Here, “reality” is placed in quotations, in part because better minds than mine have expressed the idea that the world we experience is primarily a projection of our own thoughts, or the creation of our own minds. (See, for instance, Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi.)
Maya is an ancient concept, which I will express through a paradigm which I intuitively began to receive while studying and writing constructive theology at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. Over the years since those first intuitions, I have occasionally received more intuitive insights into the fundamental nature of the universe and its relationship to consciousness. This discussion culminates a series of intuitive insights concerning how we co-create reality.
Maya has this dual nature of “good” and “evil” or light and dark, partially caused by the reduction of wave energy into particles, which have the freedom (randomness, chaos, free will) to behave according to their own energy/intentions. (Yes, I am suggesting that particles are created with specific intentions, for even quarks have characteristics that might be called aspects of the intention of their being, whether it is a particular spin or some other quality.) Particles have the free will to express the original wave of light according to their own essential nature. This is why there is randomness in the universe.
Maya is an “illusion” from the standpoint of eternity, for it is temporal (based on the element of time) and temporary (not lasting through time forever). Maya is also “illusion” in that the Divine has the ability to change “what is” into something else. I call this the Existential aspect of reality. Maya is also “reality,” or what we experience in this universe through the world of matter, as well as more generally through the world of form, including ideas.
Maya emanates, as does the entire universe, from the mind of God, as it were, or the Essential Being which existed before the “Big Bang.” This Essential Being which exists within and beyond the Universe is the Ontological aspect of reality. In other words, this Ontological aspect of reality constitutes the essential nature of being, which Buddha taught me is equivalent to “All Is Well.” That is “Who God Is” – the aspect of reality out of which all else is created, and that aspect is always in a state of perfect wellness or wholeness.
The Ontological aspect of God emanates into the universe, creating the existential aspect of being which we call “reality.” The ontological emanation of God into the universe happens through waves of energy, which entail both a conscious purpose of creating, and the gift of free will. Thus, the dual nature of the emanation of God’s energy creates both waves of light energy, and particles of energy, or matter. It is also this dual nature of both creative energy and free will that creates the dual nature of Maya, that is, good and evil, light and dark. Freedom arises not only out of the gracious will of God which grants this freedom and therefore also free will, but also out of nothingness, that is, the space into which God creates.
Nothingness is equivalent to the concept of separation from the Divine, and therefore leads to the free will to choose other than Divine intentions, or Divine Will. While the waves of energy emanating from the ontological (Source) aspect of God carry Divine purposes for creation, or Divine Will, the particles created have now arisen in the context of nothingness, or separation, and so they have the free will, or randomness, to express light or dark and varying energies, various directions, and various interactions.
Like the waves and particles of energy, our consciousness is also composed of waves and particles of energy. We have noticed and researched the fact that different brain waves give rise to different types of thinking, or different forms of consciousness. The “thoughts” in our heads may be compared to the particle nature of energy; they emanate from within brain waves, but they are concretized as thought forms, or patterns of particles of thoughts. The thoughts themselves create patterns of energies, or different levels of vibrations.
So, as part of this dual Nature of Reality, or Maya, we are in the midst of the world of form, or matter, but as conscious beings, we are also Co-Creators with God. Consciousness, as we have established in the case of brain waves, occurs according to waves of energy. Because waves of consciousness emanate from us, our consciousness shares the Ontological nature of reality in that we can co-create “reality” or the Existential world, or Maya, the world of form.
Recently, I received this intuition: “When you’re one with the wave, you’re one with creation.” In other words, when we remain calmly one with waves of Divine energy, we are one with the state of Divine creation.
This state is commonly referred to as: going with the flow. Or, this state of Oneness with the Divine wave of energy may be called “the flow state,” or “grace,” or “co-creation.”
Resistance to the energy wave of “what is” creates particles. In other words, if we resent, or block the flow of energy instead of remaining one with the Divine wave flow, we create particles of resistance. These particles create karmic twins that match their resonance. In other words, our inward resistance in the form of thought particles creates particles of energy outside ourselves that mirror our own blockage of the flow of Divine energy. By our own resistance to the flow of Life, we karmically create lower vibrations through particles of resistance that appear outside of us, thus creating “reality” that matches our resistance, our fears, our hurts, or our desires, rather than creating the Divine state of grace.
By contrast, acceptance of “what is” enables us to be one with the Divine wave of energy which is creating divine will. This is called “going with the flow,” which is commonly recognized as beneficial. The reason that going with the flow is beneficial is that acceptance harmonies with the wave of divine creation, and so the only particles emitted by us in this state of grace concretize Divine Will. In other words, any particles created by our conscious act of acceptance and unity with the Divine wave of Creation results in our co-creating particles that harmonize with Divine Designs for life.
And there you have it: we can either be and remain part of the wave of God’s consciousness in the universe, co-creating in harmony with Divine Will, which results in our living in a constant state of grace, or we can be in a state of resistance, which results in our remaining in states of struggle and lack of fulfillment of our Divine Selves.
The choice is ours: learn to meditate and to achieve oneness with the constant flow of Divine Loving Consciousness, co-creating Divine Will all around us and in us and through us, or separating ourselves and creating particles of Maya which dance to their own tune, and which fail to harmonize with the grander schemes of Life in this Universe.
May we learn to flow with the dance of Life, harmonizing as One with the flow of Unconditional Love, which alone creates the third aspect of “reality”: the Teleological. The Teleological aspect of reality is the ultimate goal of this universe of Maya: complete wholeness, healing, and union with that Divine original state of being which is: Love, and Peace, and Bliss.
The ultimate teleos of creation is for all of us to be one in this state of being in which All Is Well.
Love and Light,
