Is God the Universe Becoming Aware of Itself?

Updated on May 23, 2014

Is God the Universe becoming aware of itself? I ponder these types of questions all the time. I have had many experiences involving "God", or what I thought was God at the time. What really happened, I still don't know.

What I don't believe in is the Christian God, or any other type of religious belief. I am an agnostic, although I've run the gamut of beliefs throughout my life. I believe SOMETHING exists, but I don't know what it is. I believe SOMETHING is going on, but I don't know what that is either. There are patterns I can sometimes make out, but nothing is ever very clear. I know the Universe is mysterious, but there are clues to those patterns. In the Earth and moon and sun, in mythology and religion. In the cycles of time and nature. In the patterns of growth and life.

The Egyptians associated the powers of nature with numbers, and called their "Gods" Neters. There was the 1-2-3 trinity describing the relationship of duality (yin and yang), four was form and space, five was life, seven growth. They built their temples and Pyramids to reflect the powers of nature.

The Christian cathedrals of the first millennium were built for the same purpose, to reflect the powers of nature through number and proportion. These have been lost over the years, and we no longer understand the real laws that govern nature.

But perhaps the cycle has come again, and the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Man, will bring back this knowledge through intuition and growing awareness and consciousness. The Sphinx was a representation of the two most important ages, Leo and Aquarius, the Lion and the Man. It might have been left as a marker for us to figure out the Precession of the Equinoxes, and when it began, so we would be able to figure out when the Age of Aquarius would begin, and that this time was an important one for the consciousness of human beings.

Perhaps our intuition is the Universe telling us things we need to know. About the laws of nature through number and proportion especially. About how everything is a vibrational pattern, that fits into the fractal nature of the Universe, and that we as humans play an important role in the awareness of the Universe.

      Your thoughts are not bad. You most certainly are not agnostic! And yes, I feel that you are a very good person.

      You are not only using the mind to ask questions, but to answer them as well. They have to make sense for you. Right?

      Christianity has its merits and has satisfied the longing of many Saints: Francis of Assisi; Augustine of Hippo, Theresa of Avila, etc...

      At least you appreciate the Universe and playing an important role. This is beautiful, and God is beauty. God is everything, really. It is rather like a Tree and its branches. One man likes the Christian branch, another the Jewish branch. yet a third person the Islamic branch and so forth.

      Remember that the Tree, like the Cosmos, is One, and that the branches, roots, leaves ... are all co-workers with it and as such very necessary. There is nothing without purpose and all that is created has its usefulness, be it a plant, religion or science and politics. Indeed even war and pestilence.

      See the whole. Think of One, as there is no 'two'. Two implies separation and Spirit is One, expressing its beauty in diversity; in myriad ways. Even in what some call Agnosticism. An Omnipotent Truth cannot be bound.

      Please forgive me for taking up so much of your Hub. You are unique, beautiful and sincere and perhaps we can chat. Above all, mysticism is expressed beyond the mind and in the heart Centre or Soul. The Universe is the heart of a Holy Man. Higher blessings.
