THE VAST NETWORK OF LIFE
A lightbulb that is never lit, is not serving it’s purpose. After all, when it is plugged-in to the Source of Power and not on … it isn’t doing it’s job … it’s calling. It is dark and has no light. Connecting it to the source … turning it on and putting it into service … gives it Life. Otherwise, it is just there … inert, inactive, and non-participatory. If it does not shine, it is darkness.
It was recorded among the ancient Biblical scriptures: “you are the light of the world.” Therefore, if you have Life, you have light. Your bulb is ON. With this light, you join the universal network of consciousness and Life … connected directly to Source Energy. You are plugged in and that very fact proves you have purpose.
When a light bulb burns out … we say it is dead. It is the light that is it’s purpose. The LIFE … comes from within. Just as our Life comes from within. Each and every breath we take, is inspiration and expiration … two polarities of one principle – breath – our life-force. We live and die in each one. We cannot breathe out, unless we first breathe in, and vice-versa.
You are connected to the vast network of consciousness (the Field/Matrix) that moves the planets, births the stars, and shines the suns. All is energy … even matter. You are a piece of the whole … the holy. We are all One. Interconnected through Heaven (Spirit) and Earth (Matter) … or Father and Mother.
Each of us is a seed, birthed OUT of the Earth (our Mother/Matter – Mater is Latin for Mother) in the same way as a flower springs from the ground. I can go on and on but suffice it to say … everything in this vast network of Life matters. Every plant, mineral, animal, and the entirety of mankind. We are tied to the winds, and the ground. Sharing every molecule, atom, and quark … as a fish in the ocean … we are as waves, eternal blended with all that is.
There is no “other.” What we do to/for someone else, we do to/for ourselves. Pay no attention to labels and creeds, beliefs and opinions. The Truth is that there is One Universe, One “God” (call it what you will), and that every “thing” is actually no-thing at all … but a single oneness as a single universal organism. It can be no other way.
“There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness … If they say to you: Whence have you come?, say to them: We have come from the light, the place where the light came into being of itself. It established itself, and it revealed itself in their image. If they say to you: Who are you?, say: We are his sons, and we are the elect of the living Father.”
~Gospel of Thomas
