The inflatable universe
God is to the universe as air is to a balloon. The invisible, formless, silent, timeless and infinite force that gives rise to all forms and all things, that gives rise to the illusion of trillions upon trillions of seemingly separate objects and yet, this loving, joyful, compassionate force is on top, inside and behind everything. In a sense it’s an inflatable universe. The true essence of who and what we are is the air that gives the balloon it’s apparent shape and form. This air performs constant miracles. Awakening is the knowing of the balloon (the universe) to be both real and an illusion. Remembering what we are is the knowing of our true nature as One timeless, formless, playful, loving, creative and curious Being.
