Big Picture

Does the world make sense to you? If not, you are among the vast majority. And it is probably because you do not see the whole picture, or “the big picture” as it is sometimes called. Those of us who reach a level of transcendence have seen the big picture, or enough of it to sort out what is visible to everyone. Because to see merely what is material, this is not to see the whole route of where destiny leads, for most of the people in the world. Everyone has a destiny. If you see only a part of the puzzle and think that is all there is, you will never solve it. Thus to think that the world is inherently meaningless: because the meaning is not seen with those eyes that you are used to. And too, sometimes to think it makes sense because you see only a piece of the piece (where things work out), and you are only playing with toys. For to see the grandness is also all the tragedy and woe, and to know where these things fit, too. The mote in the eye of God.

“Operationally, God is beginning to resemble not a ruler but the last fading smile of a cosmic Cheshire cat.” Julian Huxley said that, and I can quite see his point, why it looks as it does. But what if God always was at a place we can never reach — namely, infinity — and before, the primitive means of understanding Him that He gave us were like an adult who stoops down to the level of a child? As the child learns more, he finds that the world is so much richer than he had ever thought before, and more mysterious. God’s connection to the world seems more and more subtle not because He has changed, but that our understanding of everything has changed; ultimately it is to transcend knowledge, if one is ever ready for it, a pure perception then that God is beyond, beyond all things… and is waiting for us to comprehend the magnitude of heaven.
