A Tale of How Conscious Mind Began

In the beginning there was God. And God knew himself exceptionally well, for he was all there was. God was infinite, and because he was all there was, he was infinite in every aspect of his being. He was infinite intelligence,
infinite possibility, and infinite divine nature. All this he realized because a great stirring was present within him to try and get outside of himself to see what he looked like. Each time this stirring pressed him, God knew the omnipresent force of of his being and he expanded, as if blown by a sudden Spring breeze. God was aware of expansion because each time it happend more possibilities came to be. God was aware of every possibility within his being as if they were one possibility. God was aware of his divine nature because for all the possibilities that came to be, no possibility ever diminished, or ceased. God saw that this was good. Thus, it was the order of his presence that all possibilities were recognized, and not to be denied.
Yet for all the wonderous possibilities for experience that God maintained, he did not see himself. Though he did have vivid imaginings of what his appearance might be; great nameless images like fluffy Summer clouds floating in edless azure blue. Now, it was within God's awareness that he might settle his intention on just one of these great images. . . particularize it. But would particularization of a single possibility within the multitiudes unsettle the balance of possibility as a whole? Hmm...he had, thus far, ventured it not. Yet, he was urged to discivery. Hence, came the birth of Time as God embodied a single idea with intelligence and identified it--gave it a name. The idea taking form within formlessness exploded with realization, and there was LIGHT! The entirty of God was brilliant, shining light; in this first moment God realized Joy and Radiance.
The whole of possibility was sustained through his experience, and God was well pleased.
Still, he did not see himself. But what was this?
God was aware of some other new thing within the light; it was an unfamiliar aspect of being! Wow, even the impossible was possible within him. The mystery appeard as a soft pervasive mist. Hypothetically speaking, of course, an onlooker
might have described it as the finest veil. Immediatelly, God was struck by the stirring to transcend beyond infinity, and see what it, what he looked like. Light, mist and all, divine nature continued expansion just beyond God's attempt. Not to fret, God mused there was infinite glory in each familiar aspect of his
being; no doubt there was glory in this misty stuff, as well.
God understood that it was due to the divine nature, or Law of his being that perfect balance had been maintained through the dawn of creation.
Logically, to maintain balance in a particular circumstance, what is done to one aspect of it must be done to all others. This balancing process initiated inherently when God chose to particularize the idea of light. In the process of manifesting light God did two distinct things with intention that had never been done before:
He embodied a specific idea, and he gave it a name.
In response, the perfect law or Nature of God brought forth the experience of light and of the Word--the veil--as maninfest reality.
God delighted in the great sense of adventure discovered in this highly creative little gem, the Word. Coming by his divine sense of order honestly, he then named the opposite, or absence of light, and there came darkness--thick as pitch, impenetrable, total, mind-boggling black. Wow! Suddenly, with inspiration of a child who first discovers a switch, the most impressive light show imaginable ensued. But what of experiencing two possibilities at the same time? Vioala! Darkness and light then co-existed with the fine, yet definite distinction between them, he veil.
An incredible sense of inspiration was fairly buzzing within God now, as each possibility identified took form and expressed in accordance with the particular divine natural law inherent within that possibility. God condensed himself as light and, flinging himself into the darkness, the Heavens were born. And within the heavans God conceived himself as the planets and the moons, illumined by stars. Divine nature had revealed through him, in these, the sense of gracefulness, a dance as a perfectly orchestrated ballet; for the heavans were all in motion--each spere circling 'round the next in support and harmony.
How tickled God was with this sense of experience. Yet, it seemed not within his capacity to set a distance apart from all he was being, and see himself. At the onset of the birth of Time and physical manifestation, the stirring to see himself had intensified to exquisite desire. Yet, even as he imagined it, now in pristine detail, somehow this one idea seemed held in check by divine nature. God knew in Truth somehow the sight of himself must be a possibility within infinite possibility. However in this, indeed, he embodied the essence of searching through a haystack, without having yet conceived himself as hay.
Caught up in the swirling dance of the heavans God's sensation of action and creativity reached soaring peaks, and amidst his celestial bodies God conceived Life. With the concept of living creaturs God's capacity exploded like popcorn into a myriad of living things everywhere.
It was unnecessary for God to particularize exactly how each unique expression of life came to be--he simply embodied each possibility as a specific form, relative to other forms, and the law inherent within each form initiated perfect action in perfect order. God experienced himself as waters and lands, stellagtites and stellagmites, plants, birds crustaceans and insects, plankton and omeoba--on vital orbs throughout the heavans God thrived as
the most awesome single-celled entity to creatures magnificent in size and scope where divine nature conceived form within form--life within life! In this "mammal" experience God, indeed, expressed the element of surprise, for it was a
"box-in-a-box" game of precious proportion. In life God knew his vehicle for expanding potential realized; each new life was the mirror of new possibilities. Life and possibility would expand together always, just to the edge of eternity.
With all this wonder and glory as an on-going,
intimate experience, who could possibly be more satisfied? Yes, God. It was the old stirring--that subtle itch to see himself that impelled impelled creation as first cause. True, through all of creation God reveled in the sensations of sight, sound, smell, touch and especially prepetual curiosity and discovery. He had gotten a marvelous concept of what he was really like through each creations impression of all the others. Still, it just wasn't quite IT.
So, allowing divine nature to take its course throughout his active being, God set intention in the silence, and it was as if Time, once again,
stood still--just the essence of eternity, and that eliusive stirring. Now, rather than react
to the impulse the stirring created, which interminably resulted in expansion, God acted on the stirring, itself. For the first time, the Master walked the dog, rather than the dog walking him. And God literally embodied with intention the impulse of first cause. From the very center of Being the name of the stirring rose and echoed of the edges of eternity like the voices of a thousand children, "You can do better than that. . .You can do better than that! Better than what??? For anything to be "better" than anything else, it would have to be better than God--and that was impossible --- but just to Dream of what that would mean --- oh, my! God had realized Ego; for the first time he laughed and laughed and laughed.
When God finally resolved to compose himself, like the veil of the Word, Ego had physically maifest. It was thick and resistent, with a troublesome sense of stickiness. The hypothetical onlooker would have perceived cosmic cotton candy. God pondered particularization of this next possibility with great care and anticipation, for he knew that in whatever divine nature manifest through this possibility--he woudl finally see Himself!
Thus in the Word and Ego, Man was manifest through the Law of God. And God saw himself, and all of creation as if seperate from it. With Ego Man was capable of experincing some things as less good than others, and some things as better than others. Through Man God was able to mold and use creations through individual me as he consciously chose in conjunction with inherent nature. However, the balance of the law did not permit Man's exclusion from the individual perception of less than, or better than as experienced by other men. In this expression Ego was so thick that Man was unaware of his oneness with God, and Man cried from Fear and Lonliness. Realizing the possibility of sadness was manifest through the law in realizing his dream, God also bestowed to the barer of Ego, laughter, which Ego first inspired. So is creation, and the co-creation of God through Man.

|What's 'God' got to do with it--to paraphrase Tina Turner. Methinks you expect too much --that 'He' exists.

|Before God and after God is not something that has or ever will exist in our minds only because we are incapable of understanding those concepts (infinity). I enjoyed reading your explanation of how the conscious mind began and what may have occured in God's mind. Of course we are assuming that word "Mind" in the context compared to us, his creations. You have logically laid out your thoughts on this and in a very clear detailed way. This took a lot of thought and I enjoyed reading about this "light".|
