The Evolution of God
Three thoughts floated up in me. First, during my lifetime my consciousness and experience of God has continuously evolved. So from my observer self I experience God as evolving, when in fact it is simply my awareness of God that is evolving. As I have shared earlier, this evolution of my awareness of God has included desert spaces of atheism.
The second thought comes from a unitive vs. dualistic consciousness. God is the Oneness, the Source of All, the All. Hence I am in some mysterious way, beyond my intellectual comprehension and understanding, one with the Oneness of God. From this perspective, since I am intrinsically connected to God and in some way and on some level one with God, that is, I am part of the Oneness of God, then as I evolve in my own awareness and consciousness, in some way God, in God’s Oneness with me, evolves as I evolve.
The third thought addresses evolution itself in the sense that evolution, from a dualistic consciousness, implies growth in or over time. Who I am today is different from who I was yesterday and from who I shall be tomorrow. But from a unitive state of consciousness there is neither time nor I.
I feel open to this awareness emerging from the Mystery as I stand on the bridge between my human dualistic consciousness and the Unitive consciousness of the One.
