Issue 89: What is a universe?

So this was quite a long explanation of what life actually is, as Praja sees it, and she hopes humankind will understand it in the future, or even now.


(What is a universe?)

What is a universe?

Without life energies moving about everywhere in the universe, the heart would just be infinitely blissful and happy, it would be infinitely conscious, but not self­-conscious. Self-consciousness can only be accomplished by creating an (illusionary) difference between object and subject, that means, an apparent difference between what you see (or hear etc.) and what you yourself are. This is what we call the illusion of duality. All developing living beings necessarily live within in the Great Illusion. We call them together ‘the Universe.’ Adi’s heart alone could not create an illusion, because it knew everything within itself. Therefore it needed a mind. We can call it Adi’s mind, or cosmic mind or universal mind. So all the innumerable different distinct living beings form all together the Great Illusion created by Adi’s mind.

Why did Adi do that? Couldn’t he have stayed in his eternal bliss forever, his omniscient heart-consciousness which knows of no illusions? Maybe he could. But in the very far past, Adi had also issued living beings. They also became minerals, plants, invisible beings, gods, animals, people etc. And when Adi’s time of rest arrived, after billions of years, plants had become perfect plants, animals had become perfect animals, humans had become perfect humans – and that was itself billions of years ago. Now when Adi was called back to the earth by his parents, he was pure heart, but all the creatures he has issued forth and helped in the passed and where now resting in his heart, also wanted to come back to experience life. They wanted to experience a next level or phase of evolution. Adventure is their very nature. So what were animals then, became humans now, what were plants them, became animals now, and what were humans then became suprahuman gods now. These suprahuman gods are of course more intelligent and wise than we humans, because they have had all human experience in the past. So now they are our helpers, and they help us for example by teaching us mythology, science and speaking out or writing holy scriptures, often with the help of highly developed and pure-minded human beings of our humanity. For example Allah spoke through Mohammed and thus gave the system called Islam. The ancients rishi’s (seers, poets) of Hinduism of very many thousands of years ago wrote or sang the Veda’s (the oldest known scriptures on earth), Veda means ‘Knowledge’ and on these Hinduism is based. And then we had Moses and Jesus, and messiahs and prophets and buddhas and many others with different names and titles in all cultures throughout the ages. We will all be equally wise and intelligent as the gods are now, but that will be far in the future, when we have left the human stage.

Life pervades everything. It comes straight from Adi’s Heart and is focused by the Sun, and streams along planets and other heavenly bodies, and along centers in the earth, and are also focused by and moving along centers and channels in our own bodies. The Universe is really one living being, built of smaller and smaller and smaller living beings. But all have a portion of Adi’s heart and its life energies. So if we think of the science of biology, we have to understand this first. The Heart is everywhere, and at the same time is only One; and life is cosmic energy which moves everywhere, steered by the cosmic mind (or Adi’s mind), and diversifies the subtle, invisible as well as visible types of matter of the universe into all these trillions and more different forms. Life does so according to ancient history lines, and according to the creative powers of the mind in a never ending process of expression and temporary rest. So life comes from within, and therefore evolution comes from within.

If one studies biology at a university, one can, after an introductory period of one or a few years, choose between an innumerable heap of specializations. One can study plant biology, animal biology, medical, chemical, physical, even mathematical biology, physiology, chemical physiology, plant systematics, statistics, geobiology, even exobiology and many many more. Some biologists specialize in a very small section of the living beings, for example bryologists study only mosses, and blattologists study only cockroaches. Minerals are continuously interplaying with plants and animals. Our bodies consist of them. But they are generally studied in other sciences like geography, crystallography, physics and chemistry. From Praja’s point of view all these sciences should be included in the life-sciences, or biology. We, humanity, are in the middle of the process of understanding nature, its forms and processes. It is one of the best ways to learn to understand beauty and to develop divine awe. It is so complex, the processes are so intelligent, it often shows breathtaking beauty, helpfulness, cooperation. Whatever you learn and understand, there always remains more to learn and understand. You never need to get bored. Understanding of nature is the basis of art and of technology. So we thank much to Praja who invented biology and taught us the general principles.

But from Praja’s wisdom-view, studying all these forms is not the most important thing. More important to her are life itself, how mind influences life energies, and how energies affect mind, the fundamental types of energies, the source of life and the various sources of the different branches of diversification – i.e. why are there clearly distinct streams of evolving beings in living nature: like insects, or anaerobic microorganisms, birds, ferns, flowering plants, mammals and reptiles, sea urchins etc. etc. And what do they do for each other? – and we humans can study how they relate and how they influence each other. So among the main branches of biology are the recognition and study of evolution, and ecology.




Evolution literally means: rolling forth, or unfolding. A plant evolves from a seed, an animals from an egg or egg cell,
