In the Beginning of No Beginning

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Those thoughts were written in Genesis 1:1-2. Thoughts like those are a fundamental part of Christian belief. God created heaven and earth as well as man. There’s a deep rooted belief system that surrounds those thoughts, and if anyone questions the validity of God creating man, it’s an act of heresy. Heresy is defined as a perception or belief that rests outside of Christianity. Anyone who boldly denies the veracity of those thoughts is considered an outsider and a heretic. A heretic is a person who does not conform to accept doctrines, principles, and the beliefs of organized groups.

If we say that man created God in his own image, we may certainly be considered a heretic. Our education system tells us God came first. There is always a first and a last in duplicity, but God is certainly not about duplicity. Duplicity is speaking or acting in two different ways concerning the same matter with the intent to deceive or to live in a double state or quality. Man lives in that state and created it in order to experience aspects of consciousness physically.

Coomaraswamy points out in his work Hinduism and Buddhism> that the conjoint principles, for example, Heaven and Earth or Sun and Moon, man and woman, were originally one. Ontologically, the conjugation is a vital operation, productive of a third in the image of the first and the nature of the second.

Man assigns words to different beliefs and then places them in compartments. Each belief fits into one or more of those compartments, but the beliefs are in constant motion, and change as consciousness expands. Some of our compartments are not full because we move beliefs from to one compartment in the mind to another based on our perception and experiences.

Quantum physics explains that consciousness is all one, but does fragment in order to experience itself within unlimited frames of reality. Reality is a term that describes individual experiences. The oneness of consciousness creates the mental enzymes to fragment into various aspects of its self. Man is one of those fragments. The perception of separation creates duality, and in that duality man creates God in his own image. God is another self that is a whole part of man. Man assigns human qualities to this self like judgment, punishment, fear and vindictiveness, because those are the elements that define aspects of our reality.
