My theory of a Conscious Universe is not the first cosmology to conclude that a single Self is all that exists. It appears most explicitly in Kashmir Shaivism, almost as explicitly in Kabbalah, Esoteric Christianity, Sufism, Buddhism, Taoism, and implicitly in all other great religions.
My theory of a Conscious Universe is that Consciousness is defined as that which experiences, and everything that exists is a single Consciousness.
Here’s how I see this theory playing out:
- Every life embodies a conception of a unique and novel individual, and an ideal plan for that life.
- The One Self gets to live through that offshoot in the originalrole-playing videogame.
- The Universe loves this creativity, as its form of play: avatar creation and living a unique new life.
During the pre-launch phase of each and every avatar/life, The One envisions each life ahead of time. The Original Self sees the challenges each life will face and where that life could get distracted, what experiences each will need to grow into their fullest potential, and what experiences could hamper them. The One also can see the outcome of each life and individual, when the unique gifts packaged in each avatar are fully expressed to a grateful world.In my theory, the Universe provides us with clues as to the best action to take to achieve our greatest potential.
Will each individual reach their destined goal? Because of Free Will it can go either way; there’s the fun. If it was totally predictable it would be no fun for The One. That’s how Free Will benefits The One who bestows it to HerHimself in the infinite roles played out through each unique individual.
We knowselfness, each person’s essential individuality, exists. Imagine with an open mind for a moment that all of the above is true.
I believe my life’s destiny is to reinterpret, demystify and integrate theories and new models about the purpose of life, first for myself and then to share my conclusions with others.
What’s yours? What is your ideal life, based on your unique gifts?
What is your Appointment with Destiny?
P.S. I wrote a book that delves more deeply into my theory of a Conscious Universe and explores the Single Self theories from the spiritual disciplines — not what I know to be true, but my best shot at a theory that makes everything fit together for me.
