Is duality not equal to duality? Big – small, did I miss something?
Yes, I also found it confusing at first, but yesterday’s morning download – those lectures in which my higher self uses the helplessness of half-sleep to explain things it thinks I need to know – explained it like that:
Everything that is, is dual. Hot-cold, light-dark, fast-slow, positive-negative, matter-antimatter, etc.
But that is only what we perceive as a human species, as a 3D model in the game mode of the universal gaming show, that is the SMALL duality. But duality does not end there! The most important dual aspect, which means BIG duality:
Nothing vs. everything that is not nothing!
Before God created this universe, i.e. in the immediate moment before, there was Nothing – which is therefore God. God is everything that is and therefore everything that is not, it is the potential, the energy that makes everything possible. Therefore, Nothing is also an active state with the highest potential of Creator-Energy, which is possible, nothing more is possible. The divine Nothing contains all universes that have ever been created and will be created in the future. Opposite the divine nothing is the creation, the material, but also the non-material (astral). Here, too, there is a dual field of tension. On the one hand the divine nothing with the energetic potential of everything that will ever be, and on the other hand everything that has already been created, i.e. all universes and the beings living in them.
What was the act of creation, I asked my inner, somewhat penetrating speaking voice? The answer. God’s breath!
In that moment I remembered that there is a teaching, or rather a myth, that the act of creation is the exhalation of God. Each exhaler creates a new universe. According to this, there must be countless.
But what does God breathe in, I asked?
No answer. A pity.
Whatever he breathes in, and then, when he exhales, creates universes, it must be of unimaginable energy.
I do not necessarily agree with this image of great duality, it sounds too naive to me. A God who breathes? Well, surely my higher self meant something else. I think God is pure consciousness and God’s breath is a thought, a vision. Just as we (mostly unconsciously) invent images when we fall asleep, the divine consciousness creates worlds. Just as we experience everything in our dreams as “real”, solid and material, although it is only an illusion, so are the created worlds (universes) illusions. God’s illusions.
This in turn reminds me of another teaching, that of God Vishnu. Vishnu dreams the world – this too, a dual process. Sleep vs. being awake. Dreaming vs. not dreaming.
The only moment free of all duality was the moment before the very first creation, when God was only the nothing, the pure potential.
And yet the pure act of creation is incomplete because it lacks information. But that is what God has us for, we add the information to creation. Through our experiences, our emotions, our dreams and illusions.
And, of course, it fits again into a long known doctrine, which says that God experiences his creation through us. But which again only works if his consciousness and ours are one. Because
One can only experience by consciously experiencing, not by being told.
We are God’s breath and God-conscious at the same time, even if most of us are not conscious of it.
