WHAT IF?

There is a strong tendency for followers to build

an expectation of the followed. There is a strong

desire to want superpowers in our heroes, in our

Gods, and in our leaders; to counteract our perceived

human powerlessness. So, God, for many, has assumed

the big three: omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent:

a super savior of such magnitude; who, for a prayer

will rectify any issue or ill, self-created or not.

 

As we reflect on this approach - the debate and 

consider its validity - many turn away, questioning

why a multitude of dutiful believers have faced

torment, torture, and mass extinction without

even a drop of mercy, grace, or intervention. 

 

As the note below proposes, what if God shares

our consciousness, but is not able to counteract

human free will and directly intervene in the affairs

of humankind? What does it indicate about God –

what would it suggest that we consider doing

to save ourselves, primarily from ourselves?

 

For a few months, I have been reading and rereading

the note below titled The Stirrings, along with several

related notes that have followed and support a similar

line of reasoning.

 

This initial note below offers a framework- for how

an emergent God might come into existence. I am

still praying, meditating, and asking for guidance

regarding this topic, but this is one example of

the response I am receiving.

 

On this note, the emergent God inherits

a troubled collective human consciousness,

unable to exist without turmoil, war,

and savagery. Hate to say it, but sounds

a lot like life on our planet today. So I thought

I would try my hand at a brief introduction

to frame what might have been happening

in the world at the time of this emergence

of God. Ok, let’s start with my intro.

 

When a groggy consciousness awakes to its

intention,  fed by gaining strength from, and

finally given substance to by the fearful cries

and pleas of early humaness – earth’s original

inhabitants - daily facing a stark existence in 

a new world; as there fierce, more menacing,

cohabitants seek nourishment, and evolutionary

placement; this infant collective awareness, with

wordless mindfulness, struggling for existence:

produces the perfect clamor to call forth their

salvation, an emerging God, a collective universal

consciousness that finds a reason, an intention,

a purpose, and offers a refuge.

  

THE STIRRINGS

God came into being through the stirrings

of a combined consciousness, becoming

aware and awake, reaching out to make

sense and purpose of this united presence,

this life fully aware of itself, its place, its

possibility: knowing each individual

presence was, in fact, a part and parcel

of its larger, fuller, greater perspective;

all-inclusive, evolving, and growing, becoming,

being, then dissolving; a sense of one,

whole, a sum of its parts became – this entity

of combined human consciousness, yet also,

inclusive of all less vigorous or fully aware.

Knowing – even as it awoke, the realization

of a turmoil within, at war with itself, angry,

unable to appease or unite:  even so,  its

allegiances, tribes, or coalitions left little

but fear, despair, and savagery – to placate

it, to aid in its becoming, to foster its evolution –

how was the repeated question, as the over

mind, the now overall consciousness ruminates

its purpose, its existence.
