HUMANITY AND THE TOTALITY
The two most popular opinions concerning our creation are:
|Creation theory:||A living being called "God" creates all life.|
|Evolutionary theory:||The Universe creates life by the blind process of biochemical evolution.|
A wonderful aspect of human life is the ability of the individual to grasp the totality and to realize our deepest identity to be that totality.
With this realization is a great letting go into that totality and the ability to perceive this life on earth within the perspective of this realization.
The totality is eternal and its variety is near infinite - nearly but perhaps not fully infinite.
All various, multitudinous, TimeSpaceEnergyMatterMind phenomena are a part of the totality.
Whatever changes occur in the variety, the totality remains the same.
The individual human can realize this totality and realize our deepest identity to be this Totality.
Nobody knows what the Totality of Existence actually is.
Here are some theories:
It's matter as waves
It's matter as particles
It's matter as a unified substance
Totality, being total, is an all inclusive unity. There is nothing outside of The Totality. All phenomena of variety and multiplicity, including habitable planets, evolutionary process, and species (and individual members of species) are a part, process, and expression of The Totality.
All TimeSpace phenomena, events, and experiences are a part, process, and expression of The Totality.
So the Totality is unborn, undying, and eternal and is the real identity of all things.
Now we look at the individual and the question of identity.
I propose that the identity of all life and all phenomena is the Totality of Existence. This means that all individuals are expressions of this Totality and the real identity of all things is the Totality.
Every sentient (feeling) and sapient (self aware and knowing) experience is part of the Totality, so the identity of everything is the Totality.
There is no need to suppose that The Totality is either sentient or sapient as many religions believe. As we have already realized, nobody really knows what the Totality is and certainly nobody knows whether it is sentient or sapient independent of the sentient (living) creatures that occur as part of Its process and activity.
But we do know that everything and every experience is part of the Totality - this includes all possible human experiences: physical, emotional, mental, transcendent.
So, the identity of all things is the Totality and the Totality is Everything.
All the individual need do is to:
Understand and manage the human experience which is achievable by Holistic Life Management
Realize the Eternal Totality as the identity of everything which is achievable by contemplation, logical reasoning, and relaxing into this concept
REALIZE THE TOTALITY TO BE THE SELF
SELF IS ALL
REST IN THE ETERNAL UNITY AND MYSTERY OF THE TOTALITY
KNOW THY DEEPEST SELF
