[Excerpted from the book HANDS of PEACE]|
By Dr. Robert V. Gerard and Zeljka Roksandic
One of the most complex philosophical questions concerns the origins of God and the Universe. Which came first? What was before God? How did God form? And from where does God’s intelligence derive?
Only God can give you those answers. But can we hear them? We know that God can speak clearly to those who truly listen. The Universe can’t talk, but somehow communicates facts to our scientists. Science listens to the Universe using the latest Radio Wave and Light measurement technologies. The question is: How can humans discuss these phenomena without slipping into fantasy?
We need to go back to the beginning, using our imagination as an instrument of perception. We know that in the beginning there was nothing (no thing and no matter). We also know that the current Universe was once the size of a grapefruit. But where was God in this picture? We definitely doubt He wasn’t satisfied with a massively condensed rock of that size.
Let’s now examine consciousness. Consciousness is formless and timeless, so consciousness does not need a Universe. The Universe, however, may need consciousness.
Consciousness cannot be static or solidified. It is continuously changing, either expanding or collapsing. We can imagine consciousness expanding, a self-fulfilling process, but we have trouble seeing consciousness collapsing into nothing, or vaporizing into something else. We can only see a collapsing consciousness being absorbed into something larger or more dominant. As we favor this theory of expansion, we look into “How?” and what properties allow the expansion to take place.
We know consciousness cannot have time, space, or form but science has proven that consciousness can form energy. A form can be as invisible as a thought or the embodiment of a Nation. The Universe is a form and consciousness expands it. Expansion is the common outcome of consciousness interacting with the Universe. Our answers to most philosophical questions focus on expansion, not causation. Needless to say, most of us are still driven by the mysteries of cause and effect.
Expansion is where you come into the big picture. You have consciousness. Your body has consciousness. Your nation has consciousness. The Earth has consciousness. And God has consciousness. Consciousness must expand, or collapse and be absorbed. Indeed, expansion is the better route. But how does this work? What are the elements of expansion?
The two elements are Creativity and Peace. Creativity moves the energy of expansion. Creativity is a neutral process neither good or evil, right or wrong, positive or negative. Thus creativity is indiscriminate, its creation generates a circumstance.
Peace is the mindset of consciousness. This is the intelligence that keeps consciousness yearning for more of itself. Peace is eternal balance, the shape-shifter of harmony and perfection. When any form of creation and Peace are exercised, all realms of consciousness simultaneously benefit and expand.
The intelligence of Peace embodies creation. Your body embodies creation. God embodies your creations. And it is Peace that exemplifies creation into harmony.
Now we return to the beginning: God and the Universe. From what we can determine, the tiny Universe was a massive potential energy field, ready to explode. It possessed a creative force only recently revealed by our scientists. Be God for a moment and feel the urge to share your love. What would you do with the available energy? Create something with it. Voila! God impregnated the Universe with his consciousness, a true cosmic marriage. The Universe is the feminine counterpart of God Consciousness. It houses the Maternal Consciousness.
We are the Children of God because we have both the Father and Mother Consciousness within our DNA. All the galactic children of God create. To maintain balance and harmony, those creations must sustain Peace: Inner Peace for your sake, World Peace for the galactic sake, and above all, Peace in and of itself for God’s sake.
