Consciousness exists because of unconsciousness, the day exists because of the night, life exists because of death, happiness exists because of unhappiness, and so on and so forth. Everything exists because of its polar opposite. You cannot experience happiness unless you have deeply experienced unhappiness, and you cannot come to the ultimate ecstasy if you have not been thrown into ultimate agony. Hence the meaning of the world, hence this whole suffering. It is not meaningless. [OSHO]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
9. The inherent characteristic of the Loving Intelligent Creative Power was LAW & ORDER.
The undeviating order and reliability apparent in creation, even governing the tiny entities ('cells') within the body, were astonishing and far transcended any human endeavor. Therefore, the entire universe was operating under a system of perfect LAW & ORDER.
I realized on ever higher and higher levels of spiritual exaltation that the 'creative power' exhibited intelligent purposefulness and loving concern for all living things. I realized that life was not something nebulous or amorphous but an intelligent loving creative power which I could actually feel within myself as a tremendously heightened state of being, perception, radiance, ecstasy, joy, love. I knew myself to be one with it - filled with it - and I was one with everything around me and one with the sky and stars.
And - most wonderful and glorious of all - the very 'Nature' and 'Function' of this 'Father - Creative Power' was to work in order to create joy, beauty, and comfort to ensure mankind's well-being, to work within mankind to provide interior joy, health and comfort, and to work through mankind, inspiring him with new realization and understanding.
Wonderful vistas of glorious creativity came to mind. Once we became truly 'at one', purified channels and instruments of the 'Intelligent Creative Power', we could gradually ascend in consciousness until we truly expressed through our minds and hearts the very 'NATURE' of the 'Universal Creative Power'.
Then 'life on earth' would indeed become a 'state of heaven' at all times and we would enter into a state of eternal life! [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 15]
"All of this realization lifted me to the heights of rapture, elation and sublime ecstasy, so that I was scarcely able to bear it. I felt my body must dissolve with the expansion of Power within me. I was irradiated with LIGHT and could see IT all around me illuminating the desert scene." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 16]
"The DIVINE INTENTION of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS was to express ITs own wholeness through creation by individualising, in physical form, each of the two equally balanced aspects of ITSELF and then bringing them together again in physical form, to experience the unity and wholeness of DIVINE CONSCIOUSNESS from which they originally took their individuality.
As they come together in love and unity of spirit and body, they discover the joy and ecstasy of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS in equilibrium.
(This entire process is clearly set out in Letters 5 and 7.) Therefore, the combination of the masculinity of the man and the femininity of the woman is essential to make a 'whole' drawn from the SOURCE of BEING. Out of this combination is formed a whole child." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 17]
"To fully understand the nature of creation: the reasons why the ego functions as it does, why created entities feel the urges they feel, it must be understood that the NATURE and QUALITY of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS is RADIANT JOY - FULFILLMENT - HAPPINESS.
THIS IS WHAT I TERMED THE 'KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WITHIN YOU' - WITHIN YOUR SOUL - WITHIN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF YOUR PSYCHE, which is the intermediary between the radiance of your soul and the shadow self of ego.
To return to this transcendent state of glorious, beautiful, happy, harmonious being is your soul's deepest longing!
It is this enduring longing, this inborn unconscious recollection of equilibrium and peace, joy and harmony, which, through the psyche, prompts the EGO to manipulate the environment on your behalf. Its consistent purpose is to bring you back to your primal original state of glorious ecstasy out of which you drew your soul, being and form.
But the ego can bring about your desired joy and pleasure, only by means of the two magnetic/emotional 'Bonding-Rejection' impulses - which are only materialised impulses to give you your individuality." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 6, page 9]
