THE DIVINE ENERGY PERPECTIVE
by Dennis Gaumond
CONCLUSION - SEEING THROUGH THE MAYA
If we continue to view the world from the limited perspective of our five senses, then we will continue to be subject to the illusions of life - something that the ancient eastern mystics called 'maya'. Adopting a new perspective, something we've called the 'divine energy perspective', will hopefully help us to understand that a greater degree of the illusive 'truth' lies beyond the maya. By seeing that everything in creation is made from the same fabric, something that we call 'energy', and that everything that happens in creation is some sort of interaction of energy, we will have taken a big step in seeing through the maya.
There are some aspects of the grand illusion that specifically relate to the past three segments of this ongoing essay. For example, what appears to be solid matter is an illusion. This is not only what has been told to us by the mystics, but also by modern science. If matter is magnified, we see that it is composed of atoms and that most of an atom consists of space. The more we magnify, we see that even the sub-atomic particles are mostly space. The perceptions of our five senses in normal conditions convey to our brains the illusion of solidity. Einstein and others have shown us that gravity, time and other components of our common sense-everyday reality are also types of illusions.
Another aspect of the maya is the idea that the collective consciousness of humanity and all the life forms on the planet is separate from the planet itself. From our new perspective we can see that they are one and the same. The word 'Gaia', the name of a mother goddess from Greek mythology, can be thought of as the name of the energy collective that constitutes the planet Earth. The circumstance described in the last segment, the cosmic cycle, is not just something that is happening to our planet, we are making it happen. The circumstances are affecting us, but we are also affecting them.
To explain it in oversimplified terms, it is not only our position in the cosmos that causes Gaia's vibrations to rise, it is also our collective actions. The more we can awaken and treat each other and the planet with love and compassion, the more the base resonant frequency of the planet will rise. The closer Gaia's vibrations match the higher vibrations that we are entering in the cosmos, the smoother will be the transition. We are in control of our destiny. We are not hapless victims.
Another important aspect of the maya that is relevant to our topic relates to a concept that has gotten a lot of attention lately, something known as the 'Law of Attraction'. This is the idea that we can attract to ourselves any circumstances that we desire. This concept is nothing new; it has been talked about in various ways by mystics throughout the millennia. Again, modern science seems to agree. The Uncertainty Principle, String Theory and other tenets of modern physics attest to the idea that consciousness is a creative force. It seems to be pointing to the possibility that energy and consciousness are equivalent, different aspects of the same thing.
It is definitely true that, with the power of consciousness, we can attract whatever we desire. However, one of the stumbling blocks to a true understanding of this phenomenon is the illusion that we are individuals and that our consciousness acts alone as it goes about its creative business. Yes we are individuals, but we are also inseparable components of the whole. It is our collective consciousness that creates the greater part of our reality.
At some deep level of our intuitive intelligence, we all know these things. For some of us, this knowledge is buried beneath layers of illusion - layers of incomplete perceptions of reality based on information gathered by our senses and our imbalanced deductive reasoning. By adapting the divine energy perspective, we can satisfy our need to understand things in a logical way so that we can get past that and once again trust our intuitive side. We can take a big step towards achieving a balance of feminine/masculine, right brain/left brain, yin/yang.
With that balance comes a strong realization - when all is said and done, it's all about love. Love is the key. The sooner we learn the lessons of love, the sooner we evolve, the sooner we make the big shift. As soon as we see through the maya, see past the fear and negativity, we will know beyond a doubt that underneath it all, there is only love.
