The extent of human cognition is limited to what it can envision. This limitation defines the threshold of the human mind. Once those envisaged concepts materialise, we say it as manifestation. This manifestation serves as tangible evidence of what exists. However, the mind remains unable to conceive what predates the state of existence itself.
Nevertheless, this confined mind is ceaselessly engrossed in a quest for the beginning of creation. It endeavours to unravel and explain the intricacies of the cosmos – its origin and expansion since the inception of the Big Bang – relying on the bedrock of scientific facts. Yet, the enigma of what preceded the Big Bang eludes the grasp of the mind. This riddle might well be the limitation imposed by nature. Regardless of how exhaustive the mind’s explorations, extrapolations, and explanations are, the perpetuity of the inquiry “what came before that which is explained” persists without conclusion.
The human dictionary lacks a substitute for the primeval ‘beginning’ or ‘origin’, for the mind has not been to those realms. And so long as the mind persists in this endeavour, the dominion of time shall endure. The mind is incapable of surpassing time, an aftermath of the fragmentation following the Big Bang. It is the wrong instrument for conducting this pursuit.
Could this enigma bear a hidden purpose? Could it be that the very contemplation of what preceded the domain of time and space, defies explanation by the human intellect? Might the human intellect necessitate surrender, allowing the spirit’s energy within humanity to propel them beyond their human limitations? Could the resolution to this puzzle, elusive in description yet graspable in experience, arise when all humans, intrinsically united, converge with the entirety of the universe? Could they then collectively encounter the marvel of nature, or existence itself, in a state of complete unity?
Within this state of total unity, the concepts of time and space evaporate, creating a void where judgment cannot exist. In this state, language loses relevance rendering the mind superfluous. Thus, in the absence of the capacity for judgment, there is no distinction between right and wrong, good and evil, joy and sorrow, hence the eradication of prejudice and hatred. What remains is an expansive ocean of compassion, unbounded by divisions. This is the realm of the divine – the realm where the term ‘God’ finds its place. However, let not the term ‘God’ bewilder those who harbour disbelief; it merely stands for the awaiting revelation of the mysterious. Until that unveiling transpires, our inquiry persists.
Yet be cautious not to mimic a ‘dog chasing its own tail’, ceaselessly pursuing without a true destination. Do not be deluded that you will find something to end the dogged pursuit, simply because if you do, it will perpetuate the quest.
Perhaps the pursuit is not to unearth an external entity, but for the human conscious form and mind to evolve and become the very state it seeks – the freedom from the loop of constant seeking.
