What I am saying is from beginning to end thought is the visionary, the architect, builder, and finally the initiator which produce effect.
Are you saying Absolute or the notion of Absolute is beyond the realm of conceptual designation (thought),
and that conceptual designation is a phenomenon or property of relative existence?
that relative existence is merely conceptually designated?
that the effect 'rain falls' is an effect that has its existence thru' conceptual designation?
illusory like in nature?
that relative existence is essentially a thought out design that has the design characteristic that permits change?
that 'thought' is the change agent,
rendering the status 'participatory universe'.
Are you not signifying that Gary when you assert:
'reality responds accordingly'
Here is how I am going to answer you Dennis.
What are the experiences men bring to the awareness of their fellow men? Have all the conjectures, theories, interpretation and teaching, no matter academic or not, been the cloning which continues to clothe men in opposition to tolerance of points of understanding not in line with their indoctrinated conformed thinking? And has this disrespect cause man's mental comprehension to pay the ultimate price for their irresponsibility to utilize the individual gifts they are bless with when entering the world? The price of living by a law not made for a righteous man which inspires wars, greed, and lack of trust. A law which locks the chamber of the the sub-conscious in the dark reality of an illusion of ignorance and beliefs formed to fulfill a purpose of self-righteous deceit and pride bent totally on self survival. A law initiated by the human consciousness which feeds the mind and imaginations with a comprehension which will not go beyond the noise of the human opposition of their Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personalities.
Man plows on into the myth of flesh. Flesh which is real, but not reality. Real in the sense that all is the reality of thought, and what a man thinks and demonstrates by action taken to be real to him. Real but not reality because man is not an original thinker of thoughts, only a subject which Cosmic Consciousness has objectified by It Spirit of perception.
"My thoughts are not your thoughts," man is forewarned. But men take no heed. They boast God has given them a right; a choice to think as they please. This is also real, but it is not Reality. The reality of man is found when he adheres to the commandment "be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that YE may PROVE what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God." This obedience reverts the human consciousness to its First Love established in the intent, purpose and will of the Father in the invisible when there are no forms of matter for distraction; only a VOICE of Silence knowing I AM THAT I AM.
Continuously men cry out to God of the universe for the meaning of life. They ask for the revealing of their purpose of being. Never is an answer to these questions manifested because the answers can only be comprehended in the depth of the invisibility of the power of the breath of life. The breath of life is not of the air inhaled and exhaled, it is in the essence of God thinking, and the Spirit which activates the substance of His thinking to perform "the word of his power." Purpose is to continuously live life in the completeness of the Spirit which has manifested as individual beings. This requires one to live in the fullness of comprehending the law of the Spirit is applicable to every phase of ones living, be it good or evil. And any deviation from applying righteous thinking to any and all of ones intent and purpose of thoughts sent forth into the earth mental soil, will justly return and be activated upon the sender.
To live in the fullness of Spirit there must be a "casting down [of] imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." 2 cor.10:5. As men have been conformed to this world, their purpose now must be the transforming of their minds so they can again wallow in the "love, joy,peace, long-suffering, goodness, faith, and temperance" of the fruit of the Spirit of the most high God.
Have you not heard the Voice say to you "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. . .I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son."
