Within the understanding of the relationship between energy and consciousness is the awareness that within the sum total of all the energy that exists, manifested or unmanifested, is a consciousness. In understanding consciousness and energy are equivalent and that energy permeates all of Creation, it is easy to see how this understanding gives rise to the awareness there is a consciousness or awareness behind, or within, Creation. This consciousness, of course, permeates all of Creation. This consciousness is the consciousness behind, or within, Creation.
This consciousness behind, or within, Creation is the consciousness described in the Creation Story for the Creativity Perspective. It is the story as to how this consciousness behind, or within, Creation caused Creation to come into existence as we experience it as discussed in the Creation Story for the Creativity Perspective. It created the illusion of Creation by seemingly shattering itself into an infinite number of individualized fragments each only a unique facet of the whole living in the illusion of separation.
This consciousness within, or behind Creation can be considered the Creator of Creation. When fully aware, it can be seen as a Cosmic Consciousness. Some, if they wish, can consider this consciousness within, or behind, Creation as God. However, what needs to be understood is this consciousness within, or behind, Creation does not, and cannot, experience Creation unless it steps the illusion of shattering itself and living in separation.
We can say if the consciousness within/behind Creation is totally aware and awake, then it is a Cosmic Consciousness. But other than being aware of its own existence, of what will it be aware? There is nothing other than It. Since it permeates all that Is there is nothing of which to be aware. There is no one or nothing to call it forth for it to experience itself. If it looks outward, there is nothing to experience. So, it must look inward. All that we experience is only this consciousness looking within. That is, Creation lies within the consciousness, not outside of it. This, in turn, is the doorway to the Source of Creation. When we look within, we are looking at that at which the consciousness behind/within Creation is looking. As a facet of this Consciousness within, and behind Creation, as we look within, we can begin to see what It sees.
In this regard, this consciousness within, or behind, Creation is not how most perceive the mind of God or believe that this is what that mind of God would be aware. Most see God standing apart and in separation from Creation. Few see it as being Creation.
It needs to be understood why or
how Creation arose. It arose because the consciousness within, or
behind Creation had no one or nothing with whom to experience
Creation cannot be done alone. We need another or others to
experience who and what we are. Unless we have another to become the
occasion for us to respond and uncover what is inside ourselves,
and/or what we think and believe, we will not see what is inside
In the oneness of the universe and the fact we each are an aspect of the infinite consciousness which permeates or lies behind Creation, the entire created world we experience is a direct reflection of us and what is inside us. What needs to be clearly understood, we each are an awake aspect of the Consciousness within Creation experiencing Creation as viewed from that aspect. We can awake to the whole if we so choose to do so.
In some ways you can say the Consciousness within Creation is schizophrenic and has only split itself into an infinite number of illusionary personalities that it thinks are real. Each of these "personalities," the individualized points of consciousness, are capable of creating a whole universe unto itself the equivalent of the Creation we experience or it can experience the creation of any other individualized point of consciousness as a creation within creation. We create what we experiences and create the reality of those experiences by how we focus our attention and awareness. We focus our attention and awareness in and through what we think and believe.
But what needs to be understood is that if we create an entire creation in conscious awareness that spans all that can be seen and unseen we will not perceive as the consciousness behind, or within, Creation. Quite simply, we will be seeing and standing apart from the creation. The only way to have the perception of the consciousness within, or behind, Creation is to act with the awareness that we are it and all of Creation lies in our consciousness and nonconscious mind and then create the experience of making our entire nonconscious mind conscious and in doing so, recreate the world we experience.
