God is within and God is external. God is all around, but no where to be seen. God is seen everywhere. God is you and God is me. We are all one. It is our own perceptions that create separation. It is our own emotions that allow us to struggle. It is our own poor decisions that allow us to suffer circumstances that are not congruent with peacefulness.

My readers need to know one thing. You are God. You are not separate from this existence. You are a part of this greatness. Negative experiences are filtered through your mind. The feelings of despair do not have to be accepted. You can reject them and refuse to accept anything other than ecstatic bliss.

Think of this. Your body is composed of billions of microscopic life forms called cells. Cells function together to make organs. All of that compiled together create you, a living breathing human being. Cities work the same way. A city is nothing more than a compilation of buildings, people, roads, and space. A state is the same also. A state or province is a collection of land mass defined by some governments definition. There is no real separation between cities/states/countries other than what we agree on. It's all just a location on Earth, floating someplace in the infinity of space.

We are the same as all other things in this world, we are bounded by our accepted definitions. The notion that we are God can be misinterpreted as an offensive statement. The conflict comes with a divergence of opinions, nothing more. It is pushing against the status quo that makes people feel uncomfortable. Sometimes that is a good thing, other times it is bad. 

You see, we are all one. We are a part of the bigger whole. As I've talked about before, we are simply a numerical digit in the infinite fractal of the universe's programming. Its all a pattern that repeats itself over and over at varying degrees depending on dimensional size.

Some people view God as an external being that is not a part of his creation. That is not how I view it. I view God as the totality of everything that has ever existed and ever will exist. Some say God is infinite, scientists say the Universe is infinite, and my stance is: God is the fundamental energy that makes all of creation. God is what fuels the Universe. As the Law of Conservation of Energy says, "Energy can not be created or destroyed." Energy has always existed in one form or another. It is simply rearranged. This is the basis for reincarnation and many other philosophical beliefs. As I said in a previous article, my cat died, we buried him, and sometime later the grass grew big, dark, and green. My childhood pet, Tom... Well... He was recycled. 

It is an infinite loop we are all contained within. That loop is the physical domain, our energy can not leave the physical world, because it is a part of God. We are simply living on borrowed matter. What happens to our consciousness upon death? Well that's the greatest mystery of all time now isn't it?

This article is purely theoretical and it may be a little too far out there for some of you, but the logic holds true if you believe in the afterlife and the concept of having a soul. I feel it has a certain amount of possibility, and it definitely is an interesting concept.

Okay so I believe the majority of us can agree we are currently alive and possess the unique property of life. When someone passes away their life-force leaves their physical body, and the body decomposes and is recycled. There is a disagreement between cultures with what happens to your life-force/soul. Atheists believe nothing happens you simple cease to exist. Agnostics believe there is no possible way to really say what happens aside from decomposition, so they have no opinion. Hindus, Buddhists, and various native peoples believe their energy is redistributed throughout the universe and depending on the way you lived your life, your are reincarnated. Christians believe your life-force/soul goes back to be with God if you have repented for your sins, and have received salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. Muslims believe when you die you return to be with Allah/God in heaven if you have lived a devout Muslim lifestyle. And many people don't exactly know what to believe. But this article is not specifically dealing with death, but more so what happens before you are born.

Some religions believe you are a spirit/etheric energy that resides inside a physical vehicle called a body. This happens to be my personal belief due to out-of-body experiences I have had, but now I will offer an interesting concept of how exactly our spirits/souls are born into this physical world.

So lets assume we all believe we are spiritual energies that live inside a physical body, if you don't believe this than this article won't make much sense any way. Before we are in this physical dimension we exist in a spiritual dimension may cultures have referred to as heaven, the spirit world, and etc. So upon conception a portal is created inside of the womb of a woman that allows the spirit to enter the physical vessel of the fetus. If we are thinking scientifically this point would be sometime after the semen fertilizes the egg. A day or two later a zygote is formed and the two haploid reproductive cells have came together to become one. There is no real way to define when this creation is a human, and there is no real way to tell when the soul has entered the entity, but I will offer a fact that is irrefutable:

Since scientists define a cell as "the basic unit of life." Then both the sperm cell and the egg cell are two individual living things. So when they come together and become one they have been alive the entire time, and have simply evolved into a higher state of being. So there is never a single point in time when a fetus is not a living thing. Again, like I mentioned in my article Aliens Exist. We Proved it by Landing on the Moon, our problem lies in our rigidity of definitions. 

Is it a human? Is it a fetus? Is it a zygote? All of these questions are really irrelevant, because they are just terms we have created in order to describe something in the physical world. They just describe our understanding and mental construct, the truth is they are all just different stages of the same thing. The separation is an illusion created by our own minds. Sure, it serves its purpose to define and label things, but the reality is we are all made of the same components just at a different level of evolution. Our bodies are organic, a banana is organic, a monkey is organic, but this does not mean they are the same thing. They are made of the same components but they are compiled together to create a different creation.

This is because of dimension. If we were to zoom in and leave our current point of reference. All we would be able to observe is billions of different cells that function individually, but they also work together to create what ever organ. Zoom in even further and you have organelles inside the cells that function as the organs of cells. If we were to zoom in even deeper it would just be molecules which are made of the various elements of the periodic table. This is leaving the dimension of biology and entering the dimension of chemistry. Now if you split the elements apart and examine them we enter the realms of atomic physics. Even deeper still we can enter the subatomic dimension where nothing can be explained in the normal sense. But we aren't done zooming. This is just where we are today some 264 years after the invention of Science. I personally believe you can zoom in for eternity. I believe in the idea of a negative infinity and a positive infinity, meaning you can zoom in for eternity and you can zoom out for eternity.

Now that we have zoomed in we see at a certain point we come to a position where literally everything is made of a common substance. That common substance is simply called energy. We don't really know what energy is, but we know it exists and has always existed, for ever. This is what I perceive as God. The infiniteness of the Universe is overwelming, but we are a part of the Universe, therefore a part of God.

So back to the semen and the egg cells. They both are living things, and they consist of living organelles that make decisions function to keep the cells alive, in turn keeping our organs alive, in turn us alive. But where and when does consciousness develop? Are the cells in our bodies conscious things that work together to compile to create our life?  Its interesting to say that consciousness has to develop, but I have seen some full grown adults that were barely conscious. There are different degrees of consciousness, and just because you are alive does not mean you are conscious.

But my postulation is that the soul must enter the physical body in order for consciousness to exist, and the soul must leave the body in order for someone to die. This is the basis for my theory, upon sexual intercourse and conception that triggers the creation of a portal at the subatomic level that allows the soul to manifest itself into the physical dimension. There is no other way for this to happen, and this is why many cultures have practiced ritual sex, and regarded sex as a sacred act reserved only for reproduction. It is a sacred act, that is necessary for the continuation of our species.

Like I said, this article is definitely out there, but it is an interesting concept. It is exciting to think about and will really throw your mind for a trip. 

Like always, thank you for reading. If you have any thoughts please leave a comment. Share this article if you thought it was thought provoking.

Sincerely,

This is an enlightening little video that helps put our significance into perspective. It is about 19 minutes and well worth the time.

Balance is perhaps the most important & fundamental discipline of life. Balance keeps our bodies alive with the complexities of homeostasis. Balance keeps us erect as we walk, balance is a fundamental element of the physical plane. Without balance nothing would function properly. If one sways too far in any direction you become off balance and stumble.

A comedian requires balance with his words. If he becomes too rude and offensive he is just an unfunny asshole. Balance requires knowledge and understanding of people, your audience, and the currently accepted social norms. My martial arts teacher taught me the importance of physical balance. We would stand on one foot and stretch our limbs before class, the stretching and balancing exercises were approximately 50% of the class. The remaining segment would be meaningless if we were not able to maintain on our feet. Martial arts teaches balance both physically and mentally. The expended energy balances out the chakras (energy centers) of your body. Kinetic movement helps your chi flow. It promotes well being both spiritually and physically. 

In Taoism balance is known as yin yang. Yin being the feminine spirit and yang being the masculine spirit. This concept can be applied to everything. It is part of the Universal Law. It spans across all planes of existence: for balance is the root of Karma. 

Our spiritual journey is to maintain balance in our lives. We are to take responsibility for our actions. Our lives are our responsibilities and no ones else's. 

I strive for truth and balance in my life. For I know, if I seek truth and balance I will not leave any negative energy in my spiritual footprints. Negative energy is the cause of problems, stress, and emotional turmoil. Not handling situations in a neutral and emotionally removed manner is the cause for grief and malice. Maintain balance and no one will have the ability to emotionally control you.

Think of this life as an energy game. Everything is composed of energy. (Energy is the genetic name of the fundamental power of life. I call it "The God Force.") Our energy comes from the sun. The sun radiates quanta's of electromagnetic radiation 93 million miles across space to warm the Earth in only 8 minutes. This radiation allows liquid water to exist; liquid is the perfect balance between solid and gas. The plants absorb the sunlight and in combination with carbon dioxide photosynthesis occurs. The plants release the oxygen we need to breath, and they also provide the calories necessary for our bodies to sustain life.

The process is infinitely complex and the above description barely touches on the subject. There are entire series of books on photosynthesis alone, but the concept of energy still remains elusive. To begin defining energy let us discuss the nature of atomic physics. Atomic physics begins to zoom in deeper inside the plants and past the cells, through the organelles, inside the atoms to a world that is infinitely small but mostly empty space. Here we begin pondering about the nature of energy, but even that is not sufficient to describe the nature of reality. Alas! Theoretical physics comes to the rescue with a deeper understanding with many subsections of String Theory, M theory, and P Brane theory. But even still the concept of energy escapes us, for reality is infinite. As we discover new it opens doors to other worlds. Other realms reveal themselves as our understanding and technology increases.

String Theory suggests the universe is comprised of infinitely small loops or strings of "energy" that act in a chaotic and totally random manner which compiles together to create quarks. The quarks bind into atoms (the basic unit of matter), different numbers of atoms fused together make the 92 natural elements of the periodic table and molecules. The 92 natural elements that exist in nature makes up the building blocks of our physical reality. IE: your face, the toilet, the grass, your phone, the clouds, and everything that is physically tangible, matter.

If we continue to zoom out and focus specifically on organic elements (CHNOPS) carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus  and sulfur, we are given the building blocks of all things "biotic" This is the study of biology. Here you will discover the perfect balances of the human body, (anatomy, nursing, botany, mycology, and plenty more.) If we continue to zoom out we encounter the social sciences. Which describes how we function in balance as a society and individually. We also encounter the balance of the economy, politics, sociology, culture, history, and more. 

If you see the fractal trend of the universal programming everything works in balance. It may not appear relative to your position. A friend or loved one may die which causes your emotions to become chemically unbalanced, but as your loved one dies it acts as a butterfly effect of the continuous change of existence. It opens doors for new life.

Now we are zoomed out far enough to be looking down on the Earth. Imagine us somewhere in space looking at a tiny Earth the size of a baseball. See it resting in your hand. Now think: This is all we know in a tangible sense. Everything on Earth is our home. We can see it, breath it, touch it, hear it, and perceive it. Now turn about face 90 degrees. You see a black infinitely expanding horizon of deep space with an enumerable amount of stars, other worlds existing at the same time, but they are totally separate from our own existence. This moves us from the micro level to the macro level, dealing with the astronomical ideas of galaxies, solar systems, and finally to the totality of the Universe. One of my previous posts I posted a video of Theoretical Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku talking about the idea of multiple universes. Our universe is probably just a tiny grain of sand on Gods beach. Nothing exists to stop this ideas from being true. As we learn our perceptions are opened to new worlds. It wasn't long ago we believed the Earth was flat. It is my belief there is no end. 

This is the totality of our physical existence, but it is no where near being totally accurate. We all have our own world we live in. There are worlds inside of your body, mind, and spirit. There are worlds that exist on other planets, there are worlds within worlds. Worlds within the cells of your body. We live in an infinite multiverse, and there are literally no boundaries, from the negative infinity to the positive infinity. It goes for eternity both ways, the smallest of the small to the largest of the large. 

It is humbling to accept we are only a small piece of the infinite puzzle of existence. Everything is connected and exists in perfect harmony, and we are blessed to be a piece of the system.

Boundaries are only drawn from the perspective of a finite view. We are all as one and one as all. We are a part of the God Force. Our only responsibility is to contribute in a positive manner, to take responsibility of our own energy footprint, live our lives to the fullest potential, and assist others along the way.

Blessings and understanding.
