Evolution, an excerpt from Oneness Perceived

 

IX.  EVOLUTION

DUALITY IS ILLUSION.

ILLUSION IS THE INTELLIGENCE THAT GUIDES EVOLUTION.

THEREFORE, ILLUSION IS THE PRINCIPLE THAT UNIFIES THE BIOFIELD.

ALL THERE IS IN REALITY IS ONENESS.

THEREFORE, ONENESS MUST BE THE [PRIMAL] PERCEIVER,

PERCEIVING ITSELF TO CREATE DUALITY AND ILLUSION.     

THUS, BEGINS THE NEVER ENDING MARCH OF EVOLUTION.

 

THE TWO FACES OF GOD

 

            Oneness, the God within, voidness, Isness, Self, Buddha nature, is one face of God.

            Oneness perceived, duality, illusion, appearance, manifestation, thingness, is the other face of God.

            Oneness is the invisible face of God, that which can never be known.  It is the potential from which all things spring, to which all things return, which all things eternally are.

            Duality, oneness perceived, illusion, is the visible face of God, the face that takes on an infinity of appearances. It is the organism living in the illusory world of its perception, living in a cosmos that exists only from its point of view, and living in it as if its survival is paramount.

            Oneness is the ultimate yin, infinite potential, the passive principle. It is real, monolithic, mysterious and unknowable. Oneness perceived, duality, is the ultimate yang, active principle. It is manifest, illusory, experienced, knowable.

            The God principle cycles from passive to active to passive again, as it cycles endlessly from Oneness to duality to Oneness.  Oneness begins as whole, yin and passive.  Upon perception Oneness manifest, becomes dual, yang, illusory, creative and differentiated. The forms it evolves, however, exist once more in Oneness, real, unknowable, and eternal in potential. Therefore, the circle turns, the cycle endlessly progresses, yin to yang, yang to yin.

            Thus, God creates and the world evolves.

            Oneness awakening, reaching around and looking itself in the face...that is the ultimate mystery and the ultimate answer.  It is the God principle. It is the creative principle. It is the evolutionary principle.

            For if God is not the evolutionary principle, what is left for it to be? 

 

 

EVOLUTION OF ONENESS

[THE GOD PROCESS]

 

            Evolution is the evolution of Oneness. 

            The cycle from Oneness to duality and back, endlessly,

is the evolutionary dynamic.

            Oneness is the clay that duality forms.

            The people who protest evolutionary theory and believe only God could create life are not entirely mistaken, more misled.  Their error is to anthropomorphize the God principle.

            On the other hand, evolutionists may make the mistake of seeing a mechanistic universe at work instead of the God principle at play. Everything that works has to work somehow, but that does not mean it is a machine.

            God must be the evolutionary principle. All other roles are beneath it.

 

 LESS KNOWABLE THAN ONENESS

 

If anything is less knowable than Oneness

[and nothing is]

It is the dance between Oneness and illusion

Not real

Not illusory

Neither perceived nor there to be perceived

No wonder it has neither name nor form

God, creation, evolution

Mouthfuls of no-thing
