Out of the unknowable void of non-being, a thought appears: “I” – quintessential Masculine. As soon as I appear, I disappear back into non-being. In the unimaginable pause between appearance and dissolution, I am imbued with ultimate power – the void potentialised. Upon dissolution I explode into the void of non-being, giving rise to the manifestation of myself – quintessential Feminine or the Universe.
This is all happening now: the ever present paradox of limitless possibilities being played out simultaneously.
Our origin was anthropomorphised by the ancients into creation myths and parables. In the Gospel of John it is written “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. This sentence was not intended to be taken literally, but symbolically. God is the unknowable void of non-being. I am the “one and only Son”.
Anthropomorphically speaking, when God sacrificed his son (by surrendering identification with the I thought), he allowed the world (the Universe) to be created. “Whoever believes in him (whoever awakens to their true nature) shall not perish but have eternal life” (shall be free from all identification with the mortal body).
