The Void of Consciousness

“Your consciousness is that fragment of the Universal Consciousness that thinks it is you. You know it as your soul. And we know the Universal Consciousness as the highest God.  The God that was there before the creation of the universe. And the God that will be there, after.

Universal Consciousness can be compared to an infinite void of unlimited potential. A space in which an entire universe can manifest. As such, reality can be considered a dream of Universal Consciousness. God’s dream. Just as our consciousness divides into everything in our dream, Universal Consciousness divides into everything that exists within the universe. It divides into all the soul’s that bring every sentient being in the universe to life. The highest God is also known as The Great Void. And within it exists The Great Unity, everything as one entity. Souls can be described as mini-voids, fragments of The Great Void. The soul is a holy chalice that can host the world it perceives from below, or the Almighty from above. What do you allow to fill your void?

What is a dream to the Great Void, the Universal Dreamer, is reality to the souls. For without the dream, the mini-voids would not exist. There would simply be The Great Void. Souls are begotten from THE GREAT VOID, and are therefore immortal. They do, however dissolve back into The Great Void at the end of time. Like a wave disappears back into the ocean.

Everything in our perceived reality is part of something greater. All matter in the physical realm is part of a larger body known as the Universe. Your physical body belongs to the Universe. It is not yours to keep. It will return to the dust from where it came. All your knowledge and intelligence is part of a Cosmic Mental Being, described in religion as the Creator, or Father. All emotions and feelings are part of a Cosmic Emotional Being, described in religions as the Sustainer or Holy Mother and also as the Holy Spirit. Nothing exists in isolation. Everything is part of something greater. Your body belongs to something greater, as does your mind and so too your heart. You get to use them, but they are never yours to keep. You are the mini-void. Immortal. Everything else comes to pass.

Caught up in our trance called life, we have little awareness of these Greater Entities. When The Great Void sees Itself reflected in the universal dream, a Universal Ego is established. Just like there is a dream you, in your dream world, there is a dream God, in the dream universe. In Sankrit this Universal Entity, that contains the three Cosmic Beings, and that is therefore everything, is known as Ekah, The One. The One that is everything. Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent. All physical matter and physical forces, all knowledge and intelligence, and all feelings and emotions belong to Ekah. The Bible refers to Ekah as the Almighty God, Yahweh. Also as Allah. Hindu’s refer to this God as Brahma. Ekah represents the True Great Unity of all opposites and has no gender. But Ekah can be considered mortal, because even this Universal Entity comes and goes, as the universe comes and goes, and all that remains is The Great Void – Universal Consciousness.

The void of your consciousness can be filled by aspects of your world-perception, in the present moment. Or it can be filled from below with imagination, or reasoning, or memory. Or it can be filled from above, by something Divine. When it is filled from above, you can know reality directly. Then you are not limited to the senses, or your body of knowledge or your own logic. When your void is filled from above you could consider it a supernatural occurrence, because it comes from a higher level of unity. It is known as Samadhi. But to experience something from above, your consciousness needs to be hollow and empty. Not filled by the mind or the intellect or the heart. It requires a longing for the Divine. Through this void of your soul, you can reconnected to the Great Void, and to the love, intelligence and force of Ekah.

When you become re-connected to the Great Void, all feelings of being alone, not being good enough, or not having a purpose, disappear. Through this connection you are made whole again. 

My personal experience of this Divine Connection, is that God is present when I am not. And God is absent when I am present. The two never predominate my consciousness at the same time. When I dissolve my awareness into the larger reality, I experience myself as God, and God as myself. There is no two. Everything is one. But when I am there, as the ego, my dream self, I find myself back in duality, and then there is me and the world as two separate things. Me and God as two separate entities. While I am still there, I cannot experience the oneness of all, because my separate identity precludes it.

We can tap into universal intelligence by being hollow and empty in the present moment. We can tap into universal love by being selfless. By just being the void, the witness. 

Reality is beyond the reach of our senses. Our mind reflects only a small fraction of it. A small part of the physical world, limited to our interests, passions and identity. To connect to the universal reality, I first have to connect to my own soul, to the void that is my own consciousness. The consciousness of my soul that includes both the conscious and unconscious aspects of my awareness.

Have you ever asked yourself: Who is it that is watching the “you” in the dream? Who is it that observes the actions of the dream you, in the dream world? That is the real you. The dream “you” watches others, and the real “you” watches the dream “you”.”
