Number Eighty Five

Ultimately, we are here to create.  First one learns to love with a love that holds everything, every element, every facet of a particular "thou,"  Love is attention: seeing and knowing thoroughly.  Nothing can be created without love and attention. We create by loving and knowing something so deeply that we cause it to evolve, change, become.  We do that whether we are creating a story, a sculpture, or a universe.  Creating is the outcome of love.

Number Eighty Four

We build towns where there is water.  The water gives life.  Consciousness goes where there is something to learn.  Learning is the water that feeds consciousness. Consciousness becomes dormant -- sleeps -- when there is nothing to learn.  The cities of consciousness grow where souls learn together how to make a more perfect lawn, more perfect street, more beautiful song, more deeply felt embrace.

Number Eighty Three

"Dear god...Did you make mankind after we made you?"  XTC

Did consciousness create god or did god create consciousness?  Did some primordial awareness precede god, or did god kindle all of conscious knowing? Two syllogisms:

     1. All consciousness evolves and learns.  God is conscious.  Therefore god has evolved.
     2.  What evolves grows from a state of pre-existence (what it was before taking its current form) into higher and higher forms.  Therefore god did not always exist. God evolved from pre-existence into higher and higher forms.

If we define god as a level of consciousness that can create something out of nothing, then we might also say that consciousness grew from nothing into the creator of everything.  Therefore:

We are part of the whole -- the whole of all evolving consciousness.  We made god and god made us.
