A New Spiritual Perspective Inspired by Wicca, Tantra, Advaita, Taoism, & Science
Picture a child sitting alone and blissfully daydreaming. This daydream is elaborate, full of sights, sounds, and smells. The child creates the settings and the characters. Some of the characters have bodies and some do not. Some of the characters have a lot of awareness and some of them have a little. The child experiences the daydream through the perspective of the characters, but when that happens the child loses self-awareness and forgets that this is a daydream. But the daydream is where the child is witnessed, understood, and loved. The daydream is where the child has self-expression. The daydream helps the child’s growth and well-being. As the child can change the daydream, the daydream changes the child.
Now, imagine that the daydream is real and it is the reality that you are living. It is even more than that; it is the whole universe made up of combinations of energy, matter, and awareness. That child is the Creator, the Source of All, the Ultimate Self, the Divine playfully individuating into infinite diverse characters. The characters without bodies are the Divine manifesting as spirits or deities. The characters with bodies are rocks, plants, animals, and human beings.
You are one of these characters. You are a unique manifestation of the Divine. You are the means by which the Divine can experience expression, connection, and well-being. Completely human and completely divine.
This view is a spiritual perspective I have named “Synthesism.” I will attempt to elaborate this view further through this blog.
But I need your help. Yes, you, the reader! Please tell me your thoughts on this view. Let me know what this reminds you of and how it is similar or different. Please ask me your questions. Let me know what isn’t clear. This is an interactive co-creative process that will reveal best with many minds synthesizing together.
So, really, what do you think? Please leave a comment below.
In my next post, I am going to attempt to explain why I am calling this spiritual view of reality Synthesism. I will be posting a new installment every other Saturday.
