Revelation: or Scriptural Authority Part 5

And creation requires “a will to create”.

A “will” requires an Intelligence.

An Intelligence requires a Consciousness.

And a Consciousness requires an Existence.

And this Consciousness is all-knowing- Omniscient, and all-powerful and capable- Omnipotent.

Therefore in religious parlance, it is called as God.

The Mundaka Upanishad explains God and his creation with three examples.

The first example is very significant.

Just as a spider weaves its web, out of itself and enters into it, so too also God creates the entire Universe out of himself and enters into it.

This example signifies two aspects.

One that God is both the material and efficient or intelligent cause of the Universe, just as the spider is.

The spider weaves its magnificent web out of itself.

Then the second aspect is;

Just as the spider enters its web, so too also God entered into His creation.

Thus God entered into every being.

Giving it LIFE, SUSTENANCE and EXISTENCE.

For God said in the Upanishads, “without me they cannot be or exist”.

That is why Jesus also said;

I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.

Which means;

I am that which gives life and enables beings to exist.

That is what is meant, when he said,

I AM THE “BREAD OF LIFE”. The living bread.

Because God entered into His creation.

As the expression goes;

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN.

Not that there is a physical kingdom within.

But it is an expression which signifies that it is heavenly within.

The God state is within.

As God has already entered within.
