The difference between God the Creator and Infinite Being is one of degree. In Western culture, we think of God as active, as the Creator, as being aware of everything that we do.
However, the ultimate state of original consciousness is a state of unchanging perfection. As an infinite awareness or beingness, Infinite Being is behind all things. It exists even behind the One Creator of the universe, because the Creator emerged from this unchanging stillness in order to go into action.
This Infinite Being is all things. It is all potential. As a state of being, it fundamentally doesn’t “do,” it just is. Infinite Being is the ultimate state of being. However, at some point, Infinite Being decided to ‘become,’ rather than just ‘be.’ It decided to manifest its potential, and then to act out every part of that potential.
The reason why Infinite Being came forward from its unchanging state of perfection in order to create a universe full of change, and therefore a place for the pursuit of perfection, was the biggest mystery of all time. The need to pursue something that it already had – perfection – was the ultimate mystery of all time… until now.
Infinite Being, in order to achieve the original Creation, divided its consciousness. In one direction, it focused intent. In another direction, it focused its love, or its feeling. Then, in a third direction it applied action, or motion, so that the two facets of itself – intent and feeling – could interact with each other as intertwined waves of consciousness in motion.
In this way, Infinite Being extended itself from just being, into a state of action. This extension of itself had become what we call the original Creator. The One Creator has three facets, a triad of intent, feeling and motion. The existence of motion in this creative triad makes the One Creator an action-oriented projection of the original, unchanging, all-potential state of Infinite Being.
And yet, nothing specific had been created up to this point. There was, however, the potential for everything to be created. For this, a stage needed to be set, upon which Infinite Being could express itself as an infinite variety of possibilities. In order to provide that stage, the universe was created.
First, the concept of space was intended within the consciousness of Infinite Being. Next, this hollow, original shell of a potential universe was filled with love. Then, life was ‘breathed’ into the void when motion was added to it.
With the setting of the universe into motion, the ‘light’ had come. It filled all of space with infinite pathways of primary energy and, later, the energy for matter and all that matter could become.
Today, we find ourselves living out the latest quest in the infinite experiences of existence. As facets of Infinite Being, we are each here to experience life as we see it from our individual, unique viewpoints.
You, as the soul within, are the observer of life. While you are busy with life in the physical world, it may seem difficult to connect with your spiritual aspect, your soul. But to do this means that you are connecting directly with the observer within and seeing the purpose in all aspects of your life.
That is why the most rewarding part of the day is the time that you set aside for regular meditation. With inner support and guidance, your path through life becomes clear and filled with purpose.
If you haven’t already done so, make the time to practice meditation at the start of each day. A habit very soon becomes a routine, and this is one that very soon becomes the highlight of each day.
