Issue 84: The science of the cosmos

Every soul followed its cravings, some enjoyed, some were happy, some suffered tremendously, but again others were free and felt nothing but bliss, or experienced feelings of happiness of a nature which is beyond any feeling of happiness anyone can even remotely imagine on earth.


(The science of the cosmos)


Not all the invisible planets and stars were far away. Some of them Praja could actually touch. They went right though our earth and our sun without us humans having the slightest idea of it. Not in our times at least, because about many of such invisible worlds which exited in the past, exist in the present, and will exist in the future, have been mentioned and partly even described in ancient Indian scriptures, which referred to them as dvīpas (islands, continents of planetary globes) or under other names in other cultures. For Praja they were no descriptions in books, but actual realities. She saw for example that most of the heavenly bodies – whether planets like the Earth or Mars or Venus or stars or double-stars, galaxies, etc. were together with many more invisible brothers and sisters, forming families. She saw, for example, apart from our normal Earth, at least six other Earths, all inhabited, but all invisible and inaudible for us, and also at least six extra Marses and Venuses and Mercuriuses, Jupiters etc. They were all turning around the Sun; that means to say, a whole bunch of suns, of which only one is visible to our eyes. On all these invisible planets there was life, except on some moons, and even on the visible planets there was invisible life. No planet was completely lifeless. And this life had taken millions or billions or trillions or even more different forms on these planets. And you can imagine that this was just everywhere, not only around our Sun, but in all directions of the cosmos, however many light-years in whatever direction she might peer. She could see and hear it all at once, but she could also concentrate on one little thing at the time, such as the cockroach in another story. She also noticed that everything was moving, at first seemingly chaotic, haphazard, but in reality in a strict rhythmic pattern – like the chaos of thousands of people on a market place, who still all answer every day to the rhythms of day and night, waking and sleeping, or throughout the year to winter, spring, summer and autumn, rains and draughts, snowfalls and melting. Her general perception was that the whole cosmos was guided, or attuned itself, to order, rhythm, harmony and symphony – even though it is so overwhelming that if human eyes and ears and minds would be open for only a split second, through the mere force of it we would become instantly blind, deaf and crazy.

When a modern scientific astronomer or cosmologist reads this entire story he probably thinks that either Praja – or, more probably, the writer of this book – is completely crazy, and beyond the cure of any psychiatrist. Still I, and perhaps you, are not the only ones in the world and in history who think like this. In ancient scriptures, especially those of India, but also on many places elsewhere on the world, including the Greek scriptures – which are at most only a little more than two and half thousand years young – is written about these things. They write, for example, that our Earth is surrounded by invisible rings (or globes), at least six, of which our earth of sand and rock and water and sky with all its living creatures on it is the middle one. In India they are called dvīpas or dīpas or dweeps. The Sanskrit word dvīpa means ‘island’ or ‘continent’ or ‘globe’ (planet). Just as we can see a few visible rings around Jupiter, and more vaguely around some other planets in our solar system, the old scriptures state that around every planet there are such invisible globes of rings or circular islands. It seems that writers of these ancient scriptures (let alone the writers and teachers of still much older cultures than India) knew a lot of things that we today don’t know, or have forgotten, or don’t understand from our points of view and theories. At least they knew the general outlines of science better than we do, but we are very good in details of physical matter, and perhaps in that field our scholars and researchers and universities are better that all other people before us. But we have to be very aware that even our most intelligent and skilled astronomers study only a very, very tiny little bit of what Praja saw and heard.

So Praja saw and heard all this, but she was only partly interested. Because what she saw and heard describes only the material side of the cosmos. What she found much more interesting was the souls and the minds and the spirit of all these trillions and quadrillions, and quintillions and more of these beings. Whether they were happy or not. Whether they developed in the right direction (some were not, of course – all have some free will within their range). Each of them was unique, but if you went to the core of the core of each of them, you could see that they are all dancing the same dance in their own way.

Lucky for her, Praja (and Adi) were only concerned with our Earth at this moment – our Earth, no more than a tiny grain of dust which lives no more than some billions of years in the vast and eternal cosmos.

So Praja saw not only the bodies of the sun like brightly radiating gold-like disks or globes, but also their stardust bodies, mind and all energies within the sun, and the energies coming out of the sun and then flowing to all the visible and invisible planets within his own solar system, and also energies moving outwards and returning from outside, so that the sun could communicate with other suns, which we usually calls stars, but are as much suns for their system as our sun is for us. In the ancient Indian scriptures, such as the Puranas, it was written that all the planets and their sun where connected by cords. Not cords of hemp or nylon or any other material of course, but cords of flowing living magnetic and electric energies – if we may at all compare them which what we know today about magnetism and electricity. The planets and the Sun were also connected with the Polar Star – or an invisible place in space which is far away above the North pole. Other cords connected the stars, the galaxies, elementary particles within atoms, and atoms, or whatever there is, visible and invisible, audible and inaudible, etc. All these cords consist of electromagnetic living beings, information carriers, which bring messages from one place to another – like the waves of radio’s, TV’s or gsms. Or like energy-waves and rivers in and over our earth. Or like the messages in our bodies which run through our nerves and veins, or nadis, or meridians, etc. In our body we call these energies pranas – whether we live or are dead doesn’t make that much difference: everything and everyone is always connecting, and there is always communication wherever you go.

The most astounding thing which Praja perceived was that all these cords of energetic beings, in whatever direction they moved, and whatever their individual characters and feelings and minds (if they had mind) were motivated by one great primordial Force of Consciousness, of which we on Earth can even feel a faint reflection, and which we call (because we have no better word for it in our culture) “Love”. It is the one Force that caused the Universe to manifest, that hold the Universe together, that manifests as Compassion for all beings, and from which no creatures, including the greatest gods down to the most destitute creatures, addicts, criminals down to the most terrible devils, can escape. Perhaps a devil tries with all its power and might to oppose love, but he can only do so as long as he knows that love is there, and therefore remains always connected with it, unless he annihilates himself. But even that he can do only partly. After a long death of unconceivable suffering and absolute loneliness (because he has rejected all beings who could love him) which can last millions or billions of years, he will be born again and has to start all over again, but, though he had destroyed his own heart and has forgotten all that was beautiful, true and wise, he never can destroy the Heart and the HEART, and remains part of it. Ultimately he has to go with the stream.

I wrote earlier that Praja’s vision cannot be described – still I wrote several pages describing it. That looks like a contradiction. Of course I didn’t really describe it – how could I? Still I think that what I have written is about true, don’t you think so? It is a reflection in my mind and your mind, and cannot be greater than our minds can handle at present. In the future we will understand more and more, and know more and more.

You may also have some hint about the great difficulty Praja was facing. Indeed a great puzzle for which she needed all her intelligence – even though she was omniscient, which means, she knew all that can be known. The difficulty for Praja was: How to prepare a presentation of her knowledge which could be understood by the dull minds of humans? What she taught should be a challenge even for the brightest women and men, but at the same time understandable for simple minded people. It should be done in such a way that the knowledge given could be used, but not be misused beyond a definite danger point, either intentionally or unintentionally. Just like sane parents will never give a lighter with dry papers to a toddler, even though the toddler knows nothing about lighters and fire and has no evil intentions. To the most primitive among people such as inhabited the earth in remote times in prehistory, even the possession of knowledge of how to make fire would be a danger. They would burn their environment and themselves and not know how to quench the fire. Fire can only be given in a useful way when people have already developed a certain amount and responsibility, and some overview of how to handle unknown situations. Until that time, they knew fire only in the form of lightning, the sun, and perhaps natural forest fires. The wisest among them would try to understand these phenomena of nature – but if they would understand too much, they might even destroy the earth. Praja had to teach outlines and general principles, but had to leave out some crucial keys – so that people could ponder and meditate over the general outlines and apply them to serve their needs, but not use the full powers of Nature for destruction and harming each other. Not a simple task for Praja.
